Boxes in Morefoot Section


Best Answer Rob , 05 January 2013 - 07:31 PM

The problem with Boxes is that when you select the box set for the page, it will apply to all the boxes on the page.  Having boxes in both the Morefoot and content means that you're cloning the boxes, which means, in essence, a duplicate set.

 

So, the solution I'd recommend is create your Morefoot box set, and go to Dashboard > PageLines > Page Options and click Site Defaults > Boxes.  There, you can select the box set you want in the Morefoot to be a default, site-wide.

 

Next, get and activate WP-Boxer and use that, in lieu of our Boxes in content areas or sidebars. Boxer plugin replaces boxes with Content Blocks, also set up by sets, but applied to your posts or pages via shortcodes. The best thing here is that you can apply as many Boxer sets as you want inside a single page.  I personally use 8 of them on my homepage, in addition to a row of Boxes in my morefoot.

Where can I control which boxes are displayed in the Morefoot area if I add boxes to the Morefoot template section?  I'd like them to always be the same, but when I have other boxes on a page the Morefoot area is not displaying the boxes I want.

 

Here's the page with the problem:

The other pages have the correct boxes in the Morefoot area.

 

Thanks.
