The Brazenly Coded Box is no longer supported (and may not work at all on current versions of Thesis)! Download OpenHook to take advantage of its OpenBox feature, which provides similar (but better programmed) functionality to the Brazenly Coded Box!
Looking to take your Thesis 2.0 install to the next level? Give yourself nearly limitless customization abilities with the Brazenly Coded Box! It’s more or less just like Thesis’ built-in Text box, which allows you to add plain text and HTML to your site; however, the big difference is that with the Brazenly Coded Box, you have the freedom to include any PHP coding in your site, wherever a box may be placed in Thesis.

If you’re familiar with OpenHook and how it allowed you to execute custom code wherever Thesis pre-2.0 had hooks, then this concept should be a little familiar to you.
Do take note that, as always, having the power to add completely custom code to your site means having the power to completely hose the entire site. Seriously, if you wanted to, you could create a box that wipes your entire database upon which your WordPress is installed. Be careful! Double-check those codes, don’t install this if you don’t trust every user who has access to your Thesis admin area, and so on.
And don’t blame me if, through the use of this, your site explodes in your face!
Within your Thesis 2.0 administration panel, choose “Boxes -> Select Boxes.” On that page, upload
brazenly_coded_box.zip; after it installs, tick the checkbox next to it, save your boxes, and then visit the skin editor for whichever template you wish to edit. On the editing screen’s “Add Box” widget, choose “Custom Code.”
Be creative, and have fun!
