Can somebody please tell me what I am doing incorrectly Thank you Diane The blog I need help with is dianelouisesharp.wordpress.com. February 9, 2013 at 12:18 am #1149890 sharpdiMember 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.

You would need a table with borders as far as I know. http://www.w3schools.com/html/html_tables.asp February 9, 2013 at 8:00 am #1149935 sharpdiMember 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 http://www.temwa.org/about-us.html February 9, 2013 at 10:28 am #1149947 justpiMember 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): http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/09/19/background-color-to-text/ http://wpbtips.wordpress.com/2009/10/14/borders-pt-1/ February 9, 2013 at 12:47 pm #1149978 sharpdiMember Thank you I will, I am new to this what is the so-called Text editor? February 9, 2013 at 12:48 pm #1149979 sharpdiMember I take it I need CSS to use your tips! February 9, 2013 at 12:58 pm #1149981 1tessModerator Emeritus Not CSS, html. Here is an article showing the visual editor and the text editor: http://en.support.wordpress.com/editors/#text-editor February 9, 2013 at 1:04 pm #1149982 sharpdiMember your too kind, I am on a learning curve here!!
