    I've been working with Thematic and a child theme, and firstly I appreciate the work that has been put into making this available. I'm wondering if there's a resource to identify the various widgets for CSS purposes. I'm trying to style the page-bottom widget, and I can't figure out what it's called so I can include it in the style.css sheet. It is inheriting the aside styling, but I want to treat it uniquely.

    Is there a list somewhere of what all the widgets are called?

    Thanks for your help,

    OK, I found the list of widgets in /library/extensions/widgets-extensions.php. That brings me to a new question, though.

    I'm using page-bottom with a paragraph of text inside the widget. When I go to style page-bottom, though, with a test background color, the color appears in a rectangle underneath the paragraph text and not behind it, as I'd expect it; so I am unable to directly style the text box I want to style.

    Am I doing anything wrong? My CSS is as follows:

    #page-bottom {
    height: 350px;
    width: 100%;
    background: #c5d;
    margin-top: 50px;

  3. It might be a clear float issue. Do you have a url for the page so I could take a look?

    Hi, the site is It's definitely a work in progress, though, and a bit of a mess right now.

    I think I may have found a solution, though - it seems that the actual content in the widget is contained in an ul, and I added a rule for that which at least got the background where it needs to be. I still haven't figured out how to deal with the area around the content section, however.
