Hi,

 

In the box set options, it says "The description is not prominent by default; however, some themes may show it."

 

I want to get the description to show up above the box set it refers to, i.e. with the description set to "This is my box set", it would look like this on the website:

 

 

 

This is my box set

 

[box1] [box2] [box3]

 

 

 

Thanks

Hi,

 

Not sure what you're referring to, I have just read the Box setup Options and can not see that line of text anywhere regarding descriptions?

 

Can you provide a link to your site please and images of this description.

Hi Danny, thanks for the reply. Unfortunately I haven't got a live version at the moment, but it's in the box sets page (see attached image). I'm guessing it just needs a line of php to spit it out in the right place?

 

I've got two box sections on the page and what I want is the line "Please use the following contact details to get in touch with us" followed by the first box set, then "Our offices are located at the addresses below" and then the other. Is there any other way to achieve that?

 

EDIT: Just found the boxer plugin (

) which might be an easier way to about it - can just put shortcodes in the content.

Ah Ok, I understand you basically ignore that.

 

The Boxes section is a custom post type as is the Banners and Features and I don't think they support that functionality, its just a Wordpress phrase nothing more.

 

If you wish to add a description to your boxes, you will need to use the Box content editor.

Ah, ok. There was me thinking it meant something...!

 

Is there no way to get content above or below a box set then (rather than in an individual box). I can't put it in the main page content because I can't have two content sections (which I would need - one before the first box set and one before the second).

Perfect - that works! Thanks.

 

p.s. you've got white text on a light grey background for the mark unsolved button! Not good for visibility!
