How do I adjust padding on Wordpress footer? WordPress


I have a twitter widget in my footer. We're using Wordpress as our CMS. The twitter widget has a padding value that's causing the footer to be much taller than needed. I was adjusting the values using Google Chrome developer tools and found a height of 400px to work pretty well.

However, I'm not sure where I can adjust this value on the admin side.

Find the following text in your combined.css inside data folder inside your theme directory:

div.textwidget{margin:20px 0 0 0;}

and change it to

div.textwidget{margin:20px 0 0 0;height:400px;}
