I know you haven’t heard enough from me today. 🙂
I created a custom color per the tutorial and tried to use it on a widget. I tried mycustom, custom and even the #color number but it keeps inserting the default custom color of black.
Also I tried to upload widgetkit through the dashboard and get the usual WP error message of :
Unpacking the package…
The package could not be installed. PCLZIP_ERR_BAD_FORMAT (-10) : Unable to find End of Central Dir Record signature
Is there another way to upload widgetkit? if so please explain how or tell me where I can send you my username and passwords.

I tried to upload widgetkit through my host at /wp-content/plugins directory per yoothemes instructions. the widgetkit file opens and has a ton of subfiles. Which one(s) should I upload? I uploaded widgetkit.css and php neither are doing anything and there are as I said tons more.

What were you applying the class to what widget and where is this published? I will try to replicate this locally and see if I goofed on coding.
For that error, you may want to check this out which I think is related to server space: http://wordpress.org/support/topic/incompatible-archive-pclzip_err_bad_format-10
As for uploading a plugin, you can do this also by unzipping the download and then manually uploading (through FTP program) the plugin folder into this location:
But for the plugin, you should be able to install the plugin like a regular WP plugin… going to Plugins >> Add New >> UploadMarch 7, 2013 at 8:58 am #17627
The custom color was saved in customizations. I tried to use it on widget bottom 3, class curve mycustom.
As for the error for widgetkit plugin this is the same error code I got when trying to upload the child theme through the dashboard. I don’t have a server space issue.
Besides it has to be downloaded from Yootheme’s website.
I did try to upload it through the /wp-content/plugins/ but it’s not working. There are tons of subfiles and I don’t know which to upload as most of them are allowed.
I uploaded widgetkit.css and php and neither worked. Guess I’ll up load all of them and see what happens.
Let me know when you try the custom color which is #B0d183. IT’s a green color that looks like it blends well with your color scheme. Although I’m color blind some shades of green so I may not see the same color you see. Let me know if you think it blends.

Another person was experiencing the custom colour issue which I discovered the problem, albeit a minor problem which I did not put css code in for it (I will be fixing this today).
As for your widgetkit installation issue…there really should not be a problem with this, but to save you time and so you don’t have to keep going through problems here, please send me a login for your admin and link to your admin and I will install and setup the Widgetkit for you. You can send it via email through my contact link in this site’s footer or from the Email Support form (from the support page). However, I may need your FTP info as well because the custom theme I made for the widgetkit slider has to be installed this way.
Quick Note: I just read that you only uploaded a few files? You have to upload the complete widgetkit plugin folder to the plugins folder.
