    Is there anyway that i can resize widgets?

    Some widgets, like TV Forecast, totally take up all of my screen.

    I am on a 15-inch iBook, so i am a little pressed for space...

    can i make my widgets smaller?

    To the best of my knowledge, you can't resize widgets....but then again, I've never really tried to resize a widget.

    You could try to resize it by opening up the widget's plist file. There should be a and width attributes in there. Some elements of the widget may not work after the attributes are changed though. Make a backup before hacking away at it.

    I didn't think it was possible either but then i found this widget and this article. Seems like the developer must have programmed the widget to be resizeable for you to be able to resize it. Or you could just play around with plist files to try and alter it that way.
