The infoBoxes don't work that way. You have to use the existing format because of the infoBox class that puts them together.


If you just want a box that matches them, put together an HTML box by looking at your source using your browser to se the html output.

 $info_box_contents = array();

 $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => BOX_HEADING_NEWSLETTER);

 new infoBoxHeading($info_box_contents, false, false);

 $info_box_contents = array();

 $info_box_contents[] = array('text' => 'put your html or text here');

 new infoBox($info_box_contents);

You'll have to:

*change BOX_HEADING_NEWSLETTER to whatever you want. Just make sure to define it in your language file (/catalog/includes/languages/english.php)

*Put your html or text code in where it says put your html or text here/b]

*Save the file as whatever you like in /catalog/includes/boxes/filename.php

*Depending on where you want your box, just call it with:

require(DIR_WS_BOXES . 'filename.php');


Good luck.
