Hello.  This is a minor grief, but how do I change the class that are associated with the objects on my site?

I am using a LINKS content option, which defaults to the .sideboxcontent class.  This is the class that I want to use, as I have defined the baground and CSS properties for this class. 

I WANT to use the Categorized Links content option, however, it seems to default to the .ContentBox class.  I do not want to change the background on every content box in my site, only specific boxes.

How can I change the default class that is assigned to a content feature?  Can I assign the .sideboxcontent class to the Categorized Links content?

To see what I am talking about, check our site.  The USEFUL LINKS content box is the second box on the left.  This is what I want it to look like, except I want the links categorized.

To see what the categorized links box looks like, scroll to the bottom of the page, it is the last item on the left.

I want to keep the list format of the Categorized links box, as well as the categorization - but I want a solid blue background, like the Links content box. 

How can I achieve this WITHOUT setting the .ContentBox class to the same color?  (and thus, EVERY content box in the site)??

NOTE:  I will only keep this up for testing purposes and it will eventually be removed.

Sorry, some how I missed your first post.

The simple answer: Nope. Using the pre-made content boxes is somewhat limiting.

The how to answer: Create a new content box with a custom HTML container. Code the DIV of that content box to have the class of your chosing.

Thanks for the reply!

Ok, do you mean the CONTENT CONTAINERS (Left, Center, Right) in the Advanced Style Settings?

Or were you referring to the CONTENT BOXES in the Site Element Styles section?

If it is the latter, I don't think I can use them as I have a custom Style Sheet enabled. 

I am guessing it is the former, however... so my next question is HOW do I implement them?  They are not very well documented in the manual IIRC.  I will check it again tonight, however. 

How do I have different content containers for different purposes and how do I call them if I do not have access to the HTML?

My apologies is this is an excessively n00bish question.  I will check the guide book later, when I get home.
