Hi there,

Can someone point me in the right direction for how to include a block of text to the LEFT of a box set? Is this possible? Please see the attached image for what I'm trying to achieve. Thank you!

Hi MG Waters,

There's probably a way to do this, but off the top of my head I can't think of an easy one.

However, you could just put the boxes in the "content" part and then put the block of text in the sidebar. Its not precise, but in absence of a better idea...

Hope that helps!

I was wondering about that myself. I have a main Features banner which I didn't show which appears above those elements (the text block and box set) which will be the full width of the layout, but I had considered your recommended approach but have yet to actually try it. I'll give that a shot in a bit and report back. Thank you for your suggestion, I appreciate it!

You can use a plugin called WP-Boxer

Please Login or Register to see this Hidden Content

This allows you to individually structure, style and use boxes. It is applied by shortcode, so it's capable of being placed anywhere.

You can use one box for text, three just as described or any combination.

All boxes can also be easily styled with CSS.
