In order for this to work it does cover the image so now you have to make a image hyperlink
4. go to upload same image get the HTML code like this [link] copy and paste that HTML code
5. Put the HTML code under the 1st code then click save.

Sorry, this confused me a lot too. x3. Here's what you do, long story short..

-Go to your Custom Box.
-Paste this in your content:
<img src="[link]">

-Then type at least one line below what you want to be in your custom box. If it's a deviation, you need to go to that deviation and copy/paste the thumb code.

After doing that, press return again and paste this:

And.. click save and you're good. :3.

(Note: I already put a background in the link just as an example so you didn't have to. It's the link for a green background. You'll see what I mean.)

Ah, okay. It's no problem. It took me about a year to get it. cx.


1. Paste this into your custom box: <div class="popup2-moremenu"><div class="floaty-boat"><img src="IMAGE URL GOES HERE" /></div></div><div wytiwyg="1" class="gr-box" <="" span="">>

(The "image url" is the direct link of the background picture. Just for example, use this:

2. Then, put whatever text you want in your box.

3. Paste this in after you do so: </div>

You're doneeeee. C:

Tell me if you're confused about anything else; it's no worries if you still are.
