    Hi All,

    I really like the way that the post it notes and the large orange boarders look through out certain lenses. Does anyone know where you get those or how you put them in your lens?

    Thanks!

    Oops, I didn't get you. Could you be a little more clear on what you were asking.

    Hi TSF,

    That's just a little CSS magic mixed in with some simple HTML.

    You could use something like this:

    If you wanted to add a colored background, you could just add the background command like so to add a purple background:

    Hi Newbie Shield,

    Hi TSF,

    You're welcome.

    Actually, I didn't use braces "{" so technically it is pure HTML. But you get the idea and it does work.

    I've been using the two in practice for so many years that I don't think of them as separate when typing them out.

    It should span the entire width of your module.

    You can also try different colors for both the border and the background by using color names. Just replace the pound/number "#" sign and hexadecimal code with a color name. Save. Publish.

    I used the hexadecimal because you can use a larger variety of tints and shades. It requires a little additional study but it isn't hard at all.

    Let me know if you have any trouble. Have fun!

    I have been seeing this effect throughout some lenses.
    I suspected it was as simple as a background command but never got around to checking the source. [​IMG]

    Thanks all,

    I use the HTML that Newbieshield and others provided but I also found that it is a module that is called " most inmportant thing"

    Thanks for your help!
