Simple Web Design tweaking question: adding drop shadow

Is there an easy way to add a basic drop shadow that pops the webpage out a bit from the background?

Thx!
Derek

You can add a shadow using CSS but unless youre confident editing CSS it's probably not that simple.

Check out this thread on adding a shadow using CSS - you might find it helpful.

Keep in mind that if you customize the AB theme, you might want to keep a backup of it in case we release an update.

Hi Mark,

Thanks for the link.

Fortunately I found a much easier and quicker way to add a drop shadow.

In the CSS, find the selector for #container and add box shadows like this: (substitute the right hex# for black)

-moz-box-shadow: 0 0 20px black;
-webkit-box-shadow: 0 0 20px black;



Thanks,
Derek Little
