To change the color or shape of boxes for a specific group in LibGuides CMS, you'll need to use a bit of code. Here are a few common things you may want to do with your boxes:

To do each of these things, you'll need to paste the following code into the Custom JS/CSS Code section on your group management screen.

Note: the following methods involve CSS. Make sure you have a <style> tag before your CSS and a closing </style> tag at the end!

To make your boxes square rather than round:

div.roundbox {
border-radius: 0px !important;
-webkit-border-radius: 0px !important;
-moz-border-radius: 0px !important;

To change the color of the header:

.headerbox {
background-color: #006699 !important;
background-image: url() !important;

(You can replace #006699 with any other hex color code.)

To change the color of the header text:

.headerbox h2 {
color: #FFF;

To change the color of the box border: 

.outerbox {
background-color: #006699;

(Use #FFF to hide the box border entirely.)

To change the thickness of the box border:

.outerbox {
padding: 2px;

(You can replace 2px; with any other number.)
