Hi,

So my first post and I've checked the forum but can see the answer. How do I get my content, boxes etc to stand out from the background? I've seen it before and it almost looks like a 3d affect instead of having a flat website.

Thanks in advance

You can set a page background color or a background for each element... I'm not clear how you'd like to achieve this. There are many ways to do it.

If you click 'add frame' in the box meta settings that will add shadow to the boxes. In Pagelines>Site options>Color control you have the option to add shadow to the page canvas to make it up out from the background, but that only works in fixed width mode. For other sections/elements you'll be looking at using custom css :-)

I'd strongly suggest using WP Boxer plugin which allows much more control than our boxes.

Thank you for that it looks cool. I'll also have a mess around with the site background options to see if I can make it a little less bright! It's taking me almost 3 days just to cant my 'Contact Me' form up and running.

I'm sure that's the way to do it. The Boxer plugin has a template that is really quite cool and each content block already has its own unique element for CSS.
