      Thanks Sandra. Use this code in advanced CSS

      #xg_body {
      inset 5px 0 5px -5px #333,
      inset -5px 0 5px -5px #333;
      inset 5px 0 5px -5px #333,
      inset -5px 0 5px -5px #333;
      inset 5px 0 5px -5px #333,
      inset -5px 0 5px -5px #333;

      • Thanks Bernard. My width is 1024px, so I've add it to the style. But how can set the shadows outside? I've tried, "inset" change to "outset", but it doesn't work...I've also played with the px-sizes - without success: (

        I would be very happy if you could help me again.

          You are welcome Sandra. Well, I can't say anything coz I don't know the problem of your site.

          But the above code is the right code for everyone.
