    Hi,

    I would like to have the widget side-bar a bit higher (top margin) so it is aligned with the body of the page. Do you have a CSS code for this?

    Also. Is there a way to display the latest posts widget as images in the side bar?

    Thank you

    Jimena

    The blog I need help with is lifeandwanderlust.com.

    Hi there – thanks for the message.

    I’m afraid I don’t understand what you want to do? I checked your site and I don’t see the sidebar enabled? Or are you talking about the footer widgets? And what exactly do you want it to line up with?

    It sounds like this could be done with css – I just need to understand the problem fully.

    Regarding the latest posts widget with images, there’s not an official way to do it – but what you could try is adding the ‘Display Recent Posts’ widget, and then adding your site as the site, and ticking the ‘display featured image’ box.

    Hello!

    Thank you for your reply. I have decided to put the widgets at the footer rather than on the side so please ignore the first question.

    For the latest post widget with images, it does not give me the option to add my site nor ticking “display featured image”. It only gives me the option of Title, Number of posts to show and weather or not I want to
    display post date.

    I got the name of the widget wrong. You want the ‘Display WordPress Posts’

    The widget is meant to be for embedding links to posts from another WordPress site, but we can use it here to link to your site.

    It works!! Is there a way to avoid the 4 column setup? Maybe CSS?
    Thanks!

    What do you mean by ‘avoid the 4 column setup’?

    What would you like to happen?

    To have the recent post widget at the footer space take the width of the page instead of being jammed on the left.

    Making the widgets full width would use:

    footer .footer-widgets .widget {
    width:100%;
    }
