Resolved Boxes shortcode

Question

Posted · Report post

Hi Is there any way to add boxes via a shortcode? I bought BoxerPro plugin which is fine but would rather use Pagelines Boxes if possible. Thanks paulzz

You could try our grid-system: http://demo.pagelines.me/tools/ (bottom 1/4 of the page). Boxer has recently been updated to use Content Blocks. I rather prefer those, as they won't interfere with our boxes. Normal boxes are not added via shortcode.

Why not cheat your way through life.

I love boxes but I often find the layouts are non congruent for my requirements.

So I create the boxes as I like, then rip the code and paste this where I require it.

 

Here is how I do this.

 

You can create the boxes that you require then add the boxes to  a draft page.

Now view the page.

Right click the page using your modern browser

Select view source.

Use the browser find feature (Ctrl -f) and search for the comment text -   <!-- Boxes | Section Template -->

Select and copy everything in between this up to and including the folowing tag </selection>

i.e

 

<!-- Boxes | Section Template -->

           .....

           .....

           .....

           .....

</selection>

 

 

Paste this code selection inline with your normal content as required.

View page,  smile then pat your self on the back.

 

N.B.   You may need to remove the comment line <!-- Boxes | Section Template -->.

I Hope this helps.

Charles

Fair enough. Thanks.

I am using the grid — that's why I wanted the shorcode to insert into a span so my clients wouldn't get lost in the gid's code - which can be a little flakey if you don't know what you're doing.
