Standout Color Boxes and Buttons

This plugin implements colored content boxes and buttons as described in a Studiopress blog post.

This plugin implements colored content boxes and buttons a la this Studiopress blog post. Using a simple shortcode or PHP function you can create colorful buttons and content boxes. CSS is only included on pages with shortcode. Write and include your own CSS to create your own color schemes.

Requires WP 3.5 and PHP 5.0 and above


  • Create unlimited number of handsome context boxes and color buttons
  • Works with most browsers, but degrades nicely in older browsers
  • CSS3 compliant
  • CSS only loads on pages with shortcode or function call
  • Use shortcodes inside shortcodes, i.e. [color-box][my_shortcode][/color-box]
  • Create your own color schemes
  • Custom CSS automatically busts caches when you update it. Change it as often as you want, it will display changes in real-time!


To display on any post or page, use this shortcode:

[color-box]Content goes here[/color-box]


[color-button]Content goes here[/color-button]
