I'm not sure if you are referring to this post that I made on how to customize your content box borders using CSS. The same principles apply if you're not planning on using CSS.

OK thanks that was a big help but.... one more thing, how can I make the boxes wider so the borders look right around the progression box and get the vertical alignment so the chains meet up and link together? Thanks for the help Mottie your the bomb!

Can you share a link to your site?... it sounds like you might need to make that side column wider or maybe it's that IE fun bug that makes all the content boxes on the side different widths?

Hi Entrail!

Sorry it took me so long to respond... I've had a busy past few days.

Anyway, to widen your side content, go to:
Control Panel > Site Pages > Home - Display Options

Increase the value of your "Left Pane Width" and "Right Pane Width" to "220px"

Click "Save"
You may have to do this to other pages on your site to get the alignment right.

Now to get rid of the spacing between the content boxes, you'll need to edit your Content Containers, go to:
Control Panel > Style & Colors

In the right window, look for "Content Containers:"

Click on the "Left", "Center" then "Right" to edit the content

remove the "<br>" at the bottom of each container.

Save
And that should do it.

If you have any other questions, please feel free to post them.

THANK YOU!!!!! Motti You truly are the Mastah of CSS and GP... I figured since i was using a custom CSS that the changes made for the left and right table width would not work... And I never even thought of looking for a line break where it was at, I was looking in the custom CSS script area....

Thanks Again Motti!!!!
