Customize front-end outlook

By default the widget looks like all other widgets from the same sidebar you drop it in. It has its own CSS file that overrides the default styles for your list elements. You can use that file to further customize the front-end outlook.

You can also have a custom CSS class for every widget’s instance by entering the class name in the widget’s settings.
