How to frame a Text Block?

Question

I found this link that was supposed to answer my question: How do I add a border around a text/block?

However, when I go on inspect element on my browser (Chrome), I only see the YUI - I can’t find the block ID (Is something strange happening to the way YUIxxx…?)

The problem is I don’t understand what they’re saying. Could anyone help me/explain how I can frame a Text Block?

There’s a much easier way to do this using the Markdown Block. No need to find block IDs. Check out the tutorial here (it has a simple code snippet you can copy-paste and customize to your needs): Adding custom borders to text boxes in Squarespace 7

Hope that helps!

Hey, sorry for not getting back to you earlier, but thanks a lot, it was exactly what I was looking for! I don't want to bother you again, but would you know of a way to have lines in between rows and columns of text bocks? In other words, I have a page with multiple rows of three text blocks, and for design purposes, i would like there to be lines across the rows and columns. It would kinda look like a tic-tac-toe.

Thanks again for your help!

Cheers,Michael

They’re saying that every time the page is viewed, the YUI IDs change, so you can’t use those to target an element on the page.


The name is an Anglicised form of the Greek Korvetti — I like to think there’s a little bit of the ancient Hellenic drive in me.

Hi again! Would you know how to create a border on only one side of the text box using the Markdown Block? In my case, I would like to make a border at the bottom of the border, as a way to have the entire width of the block underlined.

Thanks,Michael

When I use this, it messes with my heading. As soon as I add the ending in my markdown box, my heading turns into "OUR MISSION ----------- " instead of it staying formatted as a heading. Any solution ideas?
