    Hello all,
    SEMrush
    I am currently working on a wordpress blog and it's almost ready to go. The only thing left to do, is to fix this little problem:

    I am using a widgetized theme and I have placed the "Sidebar Login" plugin as a widget.

    The problem is that the plugin's widget is wider than my sidebar.

    If I could decrease the width of that widget, I would be fine :)

    Any ideas as to how I would do that?

    Thanks in advance!

    P.S. If you think you could help me out with this but you need more info, please let me know and I will pm you the URL of the blog so that you can see the actual problem.

    I see that noone has replied yet, so I am assuming that maybe my post wasn't that clear.

    The URL is http://spycraft.keboo.com - Please take a look and tell me if you think that shifting the widget a little to the right is hard. If it is hard, I'll just make a separate page with the login stuff. I would just really like it to be on the sidebar, so please give it a shot.

    Thanks again.

    I don't know what you mean about the overflowing widgets, the sidebar looks fine to me. As for the login sidebar, try going to your global.css and add padding-left: 25px; or something to .widget_wp_sidebarlogin, #sidebarlogin. Should work, although it's hard for me to tell without looking at it myself.

    it's a html problem... after the heading tag is closed there should be a <ul> tag which should fix the problem... when i looked and edited through firebug it fixed the problem.... so basically find the widgets template and add <ul> when the input code starts and then end it before <ul class="sidebarlogin_otherlinks"> starts

    Thank you both for your advice! I just really wish I knew how to properly implement your idea. I did try nilubol's thought - didn't work.

    I don't know where exactly I should put the <ul> hockeyhero. I found the <ul class="sidebarlogin_otherlinks"> part, so I am guessing I should </ul> right before that, but I don't know where the input code starts :-(

    If you have some spare time to look at it - I would gladly give you access.

    If anyone knows the answer to where the code should start, please let me know, since I see that hockeyhero is currently offline.

    Thanks again guys! I have a feeling that we are really close to solving this!

    Open your Theme's main css file eg. spycraft.keboo.com/wp-content/themes/magazeen/style.css

    and add the following code somewhere:
    
    #sidebar-login p {
    padding-left: 25px;
    }
    
    Code (markup):
