Some CSS styling tips

The Better Recent Posts Widget Pro widget used on this pages uses these CSS styles. Feel free to use them or to use the Inspect feature of your browser to further customize your widget.

 #brpwp_wrapper-2 {font-size:12px !important}
.brpwp-title { font-size:14px; font-weight:bold;}

 For a quick tutorial on CSS styling, visit our Basic Skills Guide. The Inspector and CSS selectors videos are particularly relevant.
