Provides an easy way to highlight important content on your posts and pages inside a box with a drop shadow.
It will work on the latest versions of all browsers. Some older browsers may not display the shadows - but they will display the box with the content. Please see the following page for examples to see how it performs on your browser: http://www.stevenhenty.com/products/wordpress-plugins/drop-shadow-boxes/examples/
While you're editing a post or page you can open the shortcode builder by clicking on the box icon next to the upload media button above the toolbar.
Once you've added the shortcode to the page/post you can edit the contents just like any other content.
Try experimenting with the alignment of the boxes. To get a few boxes lined up in a row you'll probably need to align all the boxes left.
Yes, you'll just need to set the effect_shadow_color shortcode attribute to "white".
The shortcode offers quite a few options. If you need further customisation you'll need to override the css classes in your theme (usually style.css).
The css file will only be loaded when it's needed - when there's a [dropshadowbox] shortcode on the page or post.
No. It uses CSS3 only.
Please try to use the dedicated Drop Shadow Box widget. If you need to use the shortcode inside a different widget, first, make sure the widget allows shortcodes (this is not always the case). If you already have a Drop Shadow Box somewhere on the page/post then the styles will be loaded and it'll look ok. If you don't, then there's a pretty high chance that the styles won't be loaded. In this case, you may like to force the output of the styles by using the "inline_styles" shortcode attribute. e.g. [dropshadowbox inline_styles="true"]your content[/dropshadowbox]
