Vicky you need to upload textbox image to you image directory


I am using a genesis theme – where in the stylesheet is it okay to place this code? The genesis stylesheet is categorized and I am afraid to place in the wrong section. Is at the beginning or end okay?


BTW: Does there have to be an image or can it just be a highlighted box?

Hi,Thanks for comment.I dont think their much difference using this tutorial for Genesis,you just need to copy css code inside your style sheet and just upload image file to your image directory.

Hi anujsharma, You are quite right in saying too many plugins can affect your site’s performance. I’d rather have alternatives and making your articles look good with CSS is my favorite way!

Thanks for sharing these nice-looking text boxes. I have written up some of the CSS tips and tricks I use in CSS Series for Serious Writers. I hope you find them useful.
