    hi, guys, i need help! i inserted an image into my sidebar by using the 'text' widget. i have made the sidebar 250px wide, and the image is also 250px wide. however, it has spaces on the left hand and right hand side!! just blank space. why isn't it fitting exactly? they're the same size. (first time using wordpress btw)... am i missing something?

    i want the image to fit the sidebar exactly.... so i have no idea why it's adding space to the sides. i googled for three frickin hours last night, and only found out how to get rid of the space at the top and bottom (added code into the custom css part, something about padding), but not the sides.

    can someone please help me!? thank you! :)

    EDIT: i have gone through the code and can't see anything that looks like it would fix this. do widgets usually have padding or something automatically added? it's driving me crazy. i've spent more time trying to work it out than it would have taken me to make the whole site, lol

    try expanding your sidebar with 10 pixels or shrink your image with 10 pixels...either way...that should do it....had the same issue, didn't bother for 10 pixels ;)
