Basic Widget
Widget with ID field and Predefined Choices
Settings Page
Generated HTML


Upload the folder /widget-css-classes/ to the /wp-content/plugins/ directory
Activate the plugin through the Plugins menu in WordPress
Configure the settings under Settings > Widget CSS Classes
Visit Appearance > Widgets to add or change the custom classes and ids for a widget.
Expand the appropriate widget in the desired sidebar.
You’ll see a field labeled CSS Class. Depending on your settings, this will be a text field and/or checkboxes.
If you are using the text field you can enter multiple class names by separating them with a space.
If you’ve enabled the id field, you will see a text field called CSS ID.


Why aren’t the classes showing up in my widget?

You need to make sure you have an HTML element defined for before_widget and after_widget in your active theme’s register_sidebar functions,
usually located in your theme’s functions.php (/wp-content/themes/yourtheme/functions.php).

This HTML element must have class and id attributes. This plugin will not work if before_widget and after_widget are blank.

register_sidebar( array(
'name' => 'Sidebar',
'before_widget' => '<div id="%1$s" class="widget %2$s">',
'after_widget' => '</div>',
'before_title' => '<h2 class="widget-title">',
'after_title' => '</h2>'
) );

How do I add the CSS for my custom class?

There are two ways:

Edit your theme’s style.css file (usually located in /wp-content/themes/yourtheme/).
Use a plugin such as Simple Custom CSS.

How I export the Settings?

You can export the Settings from Settings > Widget CSS Classes > Import/Export.

What should I do if I find a bug?
