I would like to put two boxes in a row, but would like the first box to be twice as wide as the second.  Is there a way to use the Grid to do this?  Is there any other way to do this?

Hi,

 

You wouldn't be able to use PageLines Boxes section but you can use the PageLines Grid, more information on how to use the Grid here -

After putting in the grid, how would i put boxes into it?  Or does everything have to manually coded at that point?

You can't put boxes inside a grid. The the Boxes are a section, which are implemented separately from the shortcode for the grid in Drag & Drop (and set to hide where you wish using PageLines Meta Settings). If you're using the grid system already, I don't see any for the boxes, anyway, since the grid is replacing the boxes.

The grid would house code for the wordpress special recent posts and then a 2nd block of text.  Special Recent posts doesn't work for me in a content area, only in a box.  not known why it only behaves itself in a box.

Try looking at the boxer plugin, this allows you to set content blocks which will hold shortcodes.

So i'm starting to use Boxer and its pretty useful.  It seems a lot better than wordpress boxes.

 

boxer wasn't working to display posts, but i found buried in their support that you have to go into posts and update them with boxer settings, then they showed up.

 

Here is the page I've been working on:

Got a few alignment things that make me crazy.

On my first row of 3 boxes, why does it insist on putting so much space beneath the header text?  Would really like to reduce that.

Then, on my blog posts, it would be nice if the header and the text were horizontally aligned, but I can't figure out how to do that.

The Boxer plugin is a third party plugin and therefore we are unable to provide support, if you require assistance with this plugin, please contact the author.
