Useful tips and forum links

  • See this forum topic on permissions. Summary: "Anyway I discovered the css files being created in wp-content/uploads were being created with rw rw — permissions and as soon as I changed the file permissons to be rw rw r it all worked perfectly."
  • If you are using 1&1 hosting, create a single line .htaccess file with this code "AddType x-mapp-php5 .php" and upload it to the root. Source

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.
