- I'm not sure what video you saw or what you're trying to accomplish so I'm hoping you can give us some more details so we can point you in the right direction. Are you using DMS or the older Framework version? When you say boxes are you referring to media boxes, iboxes, columns, or something else? Perhaps a link to the site or an example of what you're looking to do would help as well.

Hi Jake

Thanks for your mensage.

I'm using the older Framework version. (Do you advice to change to DMS?)

The boxes have picture (without text). My idea is: to add 3 boxes w/ pictures and links (url).

The video is

@ecocris  I received your reported issue on this topic.

 

As the vimeo video shows, you can create a layout at Dashboard > PageLines > Site Options > Layout Editor to create a 3 column layout.  This allows you to have your normal sidebar and to include the 'boxes' you want in the other sidebar.  However, the Boxes in Framework don't work in a sidebar. So the solution is to use Responsive Grid. See

So, you have a template created with three sidebars, and the one on the left is where we're going to place your grid.  To do this, we have to add a container, or section. So, go to Dashboard > PageLines > Drag & Drop and click "Content Area" on the right side image. It will turn blue.  Scroll down. Drag the Tertiary Sidebar to the left sidebar area.  It will save automatically.

 

Now, at Dashboard > Appearance > Widgets.  Drag a Text Widget to the Tertiary Sidebar. Open the widget.  There, we're going to add your grid.  We will use this:

Now, where you see "Span 9" is where you'll place the image, using standard HTML like this <img src="the full URL to your image" alt="description">.

 

Where you see "Span 3", you'll replace that with the link and title for your image. You'll do this too, with standard HTML, such as <a href="the Link URL">Your text</a>

 

That will give you the same look as seen in the bottom half of your website.

 

If you want the title under or over the image, you can simply do it this way:

Save the content of the Text Widget and view it on your site.  If you need to customize, you can wrap content for each area in a unique class. But let's deal with that after you get started.

, your answer was totally correct for making three columns, but as he wrote to me, he's looking to create boxes in a column, which is not well described above.
