It is not possible to apply one set of styles to the complete module or individual widgets of a module differently than other modules of that type. i.e., the styles that you set to widget bar modules will apply to all widget bar modules.

Scope/Limitation

It is not possible to apply one set of styles to the complete module or individual widgets of a module differently than other modules of that type. i.e., the styles that you set to widget bar modules will apply to all widget bar modules. Ex.: You will not be able to apply say, a blue background to just one widget bar module while the rest of them have been set to say, a red background via Style Manager. For such changes, style.css has to be edited manually.
