Becoming Adept!

Hey! So. I finally dug up how to make content boxes in CSS with Mottie's tutorial here

http://admins.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=3780&ForumID=22042&TabID=27537&TopicID=7107872

But I have one question still.

Here is a link to my site:

http://blackskullclan.guildportal.com/Guild.aspx?GuildID=277894&TabID=2332197

Is there any way to get a diffrent symbol in the top left of each box? For example, have the welcome box have the little red skull, and the news box have a black axe? Everything else would be the same. I just don't like having every box have the same symbol over and over.

In an effort to solve it myself, I could have swore I read a post in the past talking about changing a single css content box, but I can't find it again. I think it might have something to do with the html boxes in the left|center|right area that you paste over, because I know that can change how it divides them up and shows the images between the verticle sections.

Any advice?

Thanks in advance!

Hehe. That is the same site forum page I liked.

So. I still have been messing with it. I can't figure out how to define each content box individually. I thought I struck gold when I thought about editing the html of each box, but some content boxes don't have that, and the ones that do, I put the css code with the style tags in, and it does change the image, but it changes it for the whole section and not that specific container. So, I'm stumped again. Is there any way to define just that one part? Like have a .ltopleft1, 2, and 3? Or something like that? Then just tell each one which picture to have in it? I guess that dosn't make sense because there is nothing to define each box individually, which is the problem in the first place! 

Just to show what I'm talking about (because past attempts to explain in words have failed. Hehe) So I photoshopped an example. See how each one is diffrent? That is what I want it to look like.

Thanks in advance!

This is possible, but sadly I don't have time to give you all the details... I'll have time to do this in about three days. Sorry =(

Oh no that is great! I won't ever look a gift horse in the mouth. =) I can wait three or four days just fine, out of respect for what you do for the community!

To be honest I need to fill in all my content and set up the forums and all that fun jazz. I have plenty else to do.

I look forward to learning from your masterful skills!
