  • Great tip, Tina, thanks for sharing! Would like to add some more tips.

    To take this further, you can add callout blocks where you can use different colors and frames to separate instructions, important links or call to action segments and direct your visitors to the sections of your pages that give you greatest gain and convey the message that you want to.

    Learn how to use various callout blocks in Zendesk help center

    Some examples:

    Thanks for sharing this additional information, Lotus! If you wanted to post a write-up of this in the Tips & Tricks section so members can see it without having to navigate away from the Community (with a link to the original source, of course!), that would be awesome! You'll get some thank-you swag, too. ;)

    Hey LotusThemes,

    Thanks for sharing!

    I like the way your note styles look. How do we get the CSS for them? (Do users have to download one of your themes to make it work?)

    Thanks!

  • Hey Jennifer,

    You are right, users have to download one of our themes to make it work.

    This doesn't make sense to me. I only have the option to customize design>view theme>edit code>style.css

    Where do I paste this? How to I preview it?

    Hi @Katie,

    This article is outdated in terms of step. You need to paste the code at the bottom of your style.css file.

    I'm trying to do this with the Copenhagen theme and I've added the code to the style.css file but it doesn't appear to working. Am I doing something wrong?
    This is what's in the Style.CSS 


    This is what is in the source code for my article

    @ Emily Wilson don't know much about CSS but I'm able to call out things by making a one-cell table and adding color.

    Hi Emily, 

    Adjust the class in your HTML so that it reads as:

    <blockquote class="important">

    That should hopefully unblock you.
