Hi Blessly!

It looks like Eph has got you covered on fixing the CSS.

But you need to go into your Custom Content Box HTML and add a "<" to the beginning of the code... so the first like should look like this:
<div id="box_ ...
Another thing I would like to comment on is your site banner... it was an ok size before but now it's way too small.

Hehe aight i fixed the banner size but for futere problems how can i see how many px my image should be? im in no way good with photo editing and its kinda a miracle that i mannaged to make the borders using paint and some free program called immage optimizer

well using that code kindly provided by Eph i got my content boxes fixed so Cheers to u m8 i also learned the px thing in the proces but still not sure how u mannaged to get the correct px size by looking at it. oh a thing that did not go as planned was the toptile now missing ?

well in the proces i lost my background as well any insight on that is welcome as well

last but not least is there a way to remove the color of my borders i mean atm i got like a greyish box around my content box and the "normal editor" is not doing the trick here

Hi Blessly!

LOL! You're hilarious ... wait, can you talk to Hermione? OOhhhhh... looking up the number now!

Anyway *blink* It's so hard to tell now if someone is using the custom CSS code or not, so if you are using the custom CSS:
  • Look in your code for the ".ContentBox" class and make it look like this:

    .ContentBox {
     border:0;
     margin-bottom: 5px
    }
    .ContentBox, .ForumCategoryHeader {
     -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 3px;
     -moz-border-radius-bottomright: 3px;
     -moz-border-radius-topleft: 3px;
     -moz-border-radius-topright: 3px;
     margin-right: 1px;
    }

  • So you're changing the parts in red. Replace the border size with a zero, and remove the ".ContentBox" in the second one
if you're not using custom CSS, add this to your Footer HTML
<style type="text/css"> .ContentBox {
 border:0;
 -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 0px;
 -moz-border-radius-bottomright: 0px;
 -moz-border-radius-topleft: 0px;
 -moz-border-radius-topright: 0px;
}
</style>

aight i finnaly took the step and threw my magic eight ball away today. so from now on im only gonna ask u guys advice on CSS code cause somehow i dont thing magic eight balls were made with CSS in mind.

from what i understood u want me to edit it to this:

.ForumCategoryHeader
{
 -moz-border-radius-bottomleft: 3px;
 -moz-border-radius-bottomright: 3px;
 -moz-border-radius-topleft: 3px;
 -moz-border-radius-topright: 3px;
  margin-right: 1px;
}

im not sure what that did cause visually i cant see what it did the other thing worked fine with the borders so mottie 1 magic eight ball -9

You are correct, that's what it should look like

How I got the correct px size for your pics; On your page I rclicked on the image, so say the top right corner image > then I went to view image (or view background image), this opens that image all by it self in the browser window > next I rclicked the image again, and then click on properties. This will give you a pop-up with the image information including the image dimensions (px).

Ok on to the top tile, I think I found the problem. Find this bit of code in your css, and delete the part I colored red.

.ContentBoxTitle {
color:#FFFFFF;
font-weight:700;
padding:5px;
}

That should do it.

super thx Eph that did it one more question about the top tile though i want i to be slightly lowered atm its all the way in the top but it need to be at the bottem where top left and top right are u see the top is smaller than the corners and its the bottem of the top tile that connects with the bottem of the top left and top righ

.topleft {
-moz-background-clip:border;
-moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
-moz-background-origin:padding;
background:transparent url(http://i874.photobucket.com/albums/ab302/Blessly/blok1.jpg) no-repeat scroll 0 0;
height:20px;
width:57px;
}
.toptile {
-moz-background-clip:border;
-moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
-moz-background-origin:padding;
background:transparent url(http://i874.photobucket.com/albums/ab302/Blessly/blok2.jpg) repeat-x scroll 0 0;
height:15px;
}
.topright {
-moz-background-clip:border;
-moz-background-inline-policy:continuous;
-moz-background-origin:padding;
background:transparent url(http://i874.photobucket.com/albums/ab302/Blessly/blok3.jpg) no-repeat scroll 0 0;
height:19px;
width:57px;
}
