I'd like to add boxes that I created to the bottom of my blog posts.

I'm having a hard time understanding how to do that along with how to differentiate what "box set" to display.

Can someone help point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Stu

Hi Stu

If you go to your drag and drop page. Pagelines>Drag & Drop and select 'content area' on the right hand layout image. Then scroll down a little and click on the tab that says 'blog post'. Scroll down and you'll see your list of active sections on the right. Slide the boxes section from the right hand column into the left. You now have boxes active on your posts.

The chose the box set you wish to display, you'll need to select it in the meta settings when creating a post. In the edit post page, scroll down to the meta settings below, and they'll be a tab for boxes. You can select the required box set in there prior to publishing the page :)

I'm having a similar problem. Your solution above does work, but I had to import over 900 blog posts into this framework. Do I have to manually go to each post to do this? Or is there a global solution.

Dennis, there are three options:
  • Make your boxes the ONLY set, so only they display on all posts.
  • Use some PHP/MYSQL script to add the page_meta to each post ( complicated )
  • Invent a time machine.
Personally id go with option 1 ;)

since we have about 50 box sets, we'll have to resort to option 2. Thank you
