Trouble with Title on Dribble Widget

I am having trouble with the title on my Dribble widget - the title is set to H3….even though my functions.php create_widget is set to change it to H5.

The other widgets (twit and Treehouse) work fine

It has something to do with the CSS styles for dribble. Because when I change the widget out to "categories" the title work s correctly.

I cannot determine how to change the CSS for dribble.

I tried just unchecking the css on the dribble widget - this had no effect

This is hardcoded in the plugin file. I had the same issue. Go to the admin panel to plugins then click editor. On the right side you will see a dropdown menu that says "Select plugin to edit". Find WP Dribbble and click select. Now do a search on the page using command + f on Mac and I believe control + f on windows. Type h3 and hit enter. Now change the h3 tags to h5 and in the opening tag, if a class is present (can't remember if there was one), change it to something memorable (I used "dribs"). Once this is changed, scroll to the bottom of the dashboard and hit update file.

Now, head back to your CSS file, find the styling for the h5 and above the h5 selector put this in: h5.yourdribbleclass,

My version:

 h5.dribs,
h5 {
   /*  styles. */
}

Note that if you update the plugin version later on, the plugin file will lose your changes and will need to be updated again. Hope this helped.
