Hi Scandella!

Well that box border design was designed to be 175 pixels wide (or around there), so if you put content that is wider than that, you'll get the dark vertical line that you see. I went ahead and took the liberty of cropping and cleaning up the images. Here is the result.

 Before
 After

This method uses only Custom HTML
  • Copy (Ctrl-C) the code below, then paste (Ctrl-V) it into both the left and right side content boxes - not the center
    (Control Panel > Custom HTML & Script > Boxes, Left Side & Boxes, Right Side)
  • Check the "Enable?" box
  • Click [ Save Changes ]
  • Reload you site page and see the result

    <div class="ContentBox" id="box_$block[title]">
    <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
    <tr>
     <td width="14" height="41"><img src="http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-top-left.gif"></td>
     <td style="background:url(http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-top-tile.gif);color:#fff;" height="41" align="center" class="ContentBoxTitle">
      $block[title]
     </td>
     <td width="16" height="41"><img src="http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-top-right.gif"></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
    <tr>
     <td style="background:#1e0922 url(http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-left-tile.gif);width:14px"></td>
     <td style="background:url(http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-content.gif);color:#fff;" valign="top">
      <div align="center">
       <img src="http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-content2.gif">
      </div>
      <div class="ContentBoxBody">
       $block[content]
      </div>
     </td>
     <td style="background:#1e0922 url(http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-right-tile.gif);width:16px;"></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    <table border="0" cellspacing="0" cellpadding="0" width="100%">
     <tr>
     <td width="13" height="13"><img src="http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-bottom-left.gif"></td>
     <td style="background:url(http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-bottom-tile.gif) center left repeat-x;height:13px;font-size:0px;">&nbsp;</td>
     <td width="13" height="13"><img src="http://www.axiomfiles.com/Files/278466/theme-purple-bottom-right.gif"></td>
    </tr>
    </table>
    <br class="spacer">
    </div>

Hi Scandella!

I looked at your site and I don't see any changes. Are you sure you checked the "Enabled" box at the bottom before saving changes?

Hi Scandella!

Oh I see what happened!

You need to replace the entire Custom HTML with the new HTML... you ended up with two copies of the content box in there. The easiest way to do this would be to:
  • Copy (Ctrl-C) the updated HTML I provided
  • then click inside the custom HTML box
  • then select all (Ctrl-A) content
  • then paste (Ctrl-V) the new HTML inside.
