Can you paste your custom CSS here? What customizations have you made and what files have you edited?

Here is my custom CSS body #spotlight .effect, body #footer .effect, body #welcome {background: #003399;} As far as files being edited and customization, I don't really believe that I edited anything...as far as I know ;)

The shadow property isn't in the code you added so I think that is getting rid of the shadow. Try adding this to your Custtom CSS:

 #spotlight .shadow-bottom {
			background: transparent url(../images/spotlight-shadow-bottom.png) repeat-x left bottom;

So that it looks like this? body #spotlight .effect, body #footer .effect, body #welcome {background: #003399;}#spotlight .shadow-bottom { background: transparent url(../images/spotlight-shadow-bottom.png) rep If so...It didn't work.

Copy and paste catrina's code exactly and try that. if it doesn't work, you can always go back to your original code that you posted. What you posted directly above won't work. :)

That didn't seem to work because using just Catrina's code causes me to lose my custom color #003399 Is there a way that I can have my custom color and have the drop shadow within the spotlight edges?

Honestly I don't know, but to combine the code, use:

 #spotlight .shadow-bottom {
			background: #003399 url(../images/spotlight-shadow-bottom.png) repeat-x left bottom;
	}

If that doesn't work, replace it with this:
 #spotlight .effect {
			background: #003399 url(../images/spotlight-shadow-bottom.png) repeat-x left bottom;
	}

And make sure you're not leaving any of the old code in there as it can overwrite these changes. :)

Thanks for the assistance, but it still doesn't seem to help....unless because my blue color is a little on the dark side it doesn't appear to show the shadow.

Would you mind making the blue a lighter shade?

Unfortunately I can't. That shade of blue is used heavily at the location for which the website is for. I wanted to carry it through. I guess that it's no biggie.

From a designer's point of view, I think the brand consistency is more important, so if you'd like to carry it through, I think it's a good idea.
