Box Customization

Question

Posted · Report post

Foreword: I'm in development and don't have wordpress on my domain yet. Sorry I can't provide a link. I would like to customize the boxes to match my desired look. Basically, I want my boxes to have a thin grey line around them (square), with the title on the top with a title background of grey. I would like the picture to fill the remainder of the box, and I will only use text underneath on certain pages (sometimes text/description below, sometimes not, but they will be consistent by page). I've copied the sections file over to my child theme directory, and started messing around with the php code, but I'm finding that the logic to handle the sizing of boxes is quite complex. Is there a guide or an easy way to go about this?

Hi, It's rather difficult to assist you without a link. Therefore, can you create a concept image of what you want your boxes to look like and we may be able to assist.

Hi, You can't do that with Boxes without a lot of messing about. However you could use HTML to do this with the ContentBox or using the Grid system.

Hey there You can read more about the grid here: http://www.pagelines.com/wiki/How_to_Use_the_Grid and here: http://demo.pagelines.com/framework/tools/ The ContentBox is pretty much all the title says... a box that can be used for adding custom content :)
