I want to add a box

  1. I have tried by adding

    [box]
    text text for what I want in the box
    [/box]

    and when I save it and look and then view the page it simply shows the words as I have typed then and not the box.

    Can somebody please tell me what I am doing incorrectly
    Thank you
    Diane

    The blog I need help with is dianelouisesharp.wordpress.com.

  2. the block I need help with is not the one shown above it is one that is not public yet as I am in the early stages of drafting it.

    I've never seen a code for a box like that. It wouldn't work here anyways.

    You would need a table with borders as far as I know.

  4. Thanks, the sort of "box" I am talking about is like the blue one 3/4 of the way down this page and I have used it on another wordpress site and it is in .org

  5. This requires some coding in the so-called Text editor. Check these posts of mine (and if you can't figure it out, let me know):

  6. Thank you I will, I am new to this what is the so-called Text editor?

  7. I take it I need CSS to use your tips!

  8. Not CSS, html. Here is an article showing the visual editor and the text editor:
