Hi there, I am wanting to add in some html to create a link to other pages on each of the 3 boxes.

I have done away with any heading or text or inserting an image using the boxes editor. Instaed I have used CSS to insert a background image for all 3 boxes. Now I want a view to be able to hover over any box and click through to a set linked page . Would I do this with HTML in the dashboard boxes editor?

 

If anyone can think of a better way I am open to ideas

Personally, I use

to create content blocks (same as boxes, but with more options). That allows you to insert an image (like a thumbnail), size it as you please (in the settings) and add a link (without code).  I'm using it for a grid of linked images for navigation. Works a charm!

Can I use the WP boxer plugin to create boxes that are in their own section? This looks like I can only put boxes inside a content section?

As far as I'm aware you can put into a widget in the footer, sidebar via a shortcode etc, or in the main content area. They don't come as a section though like the pl boxes.
