    Hello Bill,

    I’m not personally aware of out there, but I’d think if you search over on, you can find tons of free plugins giving you various options in this regard.

    And here’s an answer from another post that might help you, as well.


    I would like to use info box but without the icon the shows on the top left. How can I do that?



    Hello Hessam,

    Are you referring to the [box] shortcode? If so, there’s no option for this, but you could probably accomplish this with your own CSS customizations.

    For CSS changes, it’s a good idea to use a tool like firebug or Google Chrome’s built-in developer tools to locate them and then put the edits either in your child theme or in the “Custom CSS” option on your theme options page.

    .info-box .icon {
      background-image: none;
      padding: 15px;

    Also, here’s a helpful tutorial on how to use Firebug – The only thing I’d suggest not doing is actually making edits to the theme’s CSS files, as it shows at the end of that video. However, the video serves as a good introduction to Firebug and how it can be used to find what CSS is effecting certain areas of your site without ever digging around in any files.
