The ContentBox is a free section that isn't enabled by default. If you can find it via the PageLines store in your PageLines installation. If you receive an error upon attempting to install the ContentBox, you can download it here.

To install, open your FTP client and navigate to the following directory /wp-content/plugins/pagelines-sections/

 

Upload the Contentbox folder to the /pagelines-sections folder.

 

When you revisit your site, you should have the ContentBox section available.

Floyd,

 

This is easy, weird, strange, but not difficult.

 

First, I presume you have the Content Block section added to your Framework installation.

 

Now, we'll go to Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop and select Page Templates.  Then, you'll see a group of templates below.  Click on Blog (not Blog Post). 

 

Scroll down and you'll see two columns.  Select Content Box from the Available Sections and slide it to the Active Sections below the Content section (already there).

 

You don't have to save anything.

 

Let's go to Dashboard > PageLines > Page Options.   Click Blog Page, then select Content Box.  Add your content in the field provided.  This is an unformatted area, so all you add must be wrapped in any divs with classes or IDs needed to style it. Save the options. Go to your blog page and there's the content.

 

You'll have to add custom code to match the classes and IDs you've created.

Rob,

Thanks. I do NOT have the content box available to me in the blog template.

How do I remedy that?

Thanks Danny....Figured it out. Wow....when do you think things will get back to some kind of normal with the functionality. It was not this hard last year and I am afraid to develop anything with DMS.

Live chat is still there, but unmoderated. It's accessible via the Framework Dashboard.
