Creating a colored box around text, other blocks and/or multiple blocks?

Recommended Posts

I'm looking to to add a colored square around blocks of text to act as a border for those sections. Is there any custom CSS/MarkDown script that could achieve this? If possible, it would be great to have this happen around multiple blocks as well (for pairing a description with a video, etc).

The easiest way to do that would be to add a Code Block, which you can then style in the CSS Editor.

Try adding something like this to a Code Block, replacing


with your own class name:

<div class = "class-name">
This is the text inside the code block.

alt text

Then, you can style it in the CSS Editor by going to Design > Custom CSS and entering something like this:

.class-name {
   text-align: center;
   font-family: arial;
   font-size: 20px;
   padding: 20px;
   border: 3px solid red;

You can replace the values in this as appropriate, but this would give you something along the lines of:

alt text

To set up multiple Code Blocks this way, just give each one the same class name.

In terms of the CSS, these links are also good for reference:

Hope this helps!
