Boxes shortcode

Recommended Posts


Hi Is there any way to add boxes via a shortcode? I bought BoxerPro plugin which is fine but would rather use Pagelines Boxes if possible. Thanks paulzz

You could try our grid-system: http://demo.pagelines.me/tools/ (bottom 1/4 of the page). Boxer has recently been updated to use Content Blocks. I rather prefer those, as they won't interfere with our boxes. Normal boxes are not added via shortcode.

Fair enough. Thanks.

I am using the grid — that's why I wanted the shorcode to insert into a span so my clients wouldn't get lost in the gid's code - which can be a little flakey if you don't know what you're doing.

Why not cheat your way through life.

I love boxes but I often find the layouts are non congruent for my requirements.

So I create the boxes as I like, then rip the code and paste this where I require it.


Here is how I do this.


You can create the boxes that you require then add the boxes to  a draft page.

Now view the page.

Right click the page using your modern browser

Select view source.

Use the browser find feature (Ctrl -f) and search for the comment text -   <!-- Boxes | Section Template -->

Select and copy everything in between this up to and including the folowing tag </selection>



<!-- Boxes | Section Template -->








Paste this code selection inline with your normal content as required.

View page,  smile then pat your self on the back.


N.B.   You may need to remove the comment line <!-- Boxes | Section Template -->.

I Hope this helps.

      Over the last month I had extensive communications with the developer of the (premium) Anything Boxes section (in Pagelines store) (Adam Munns) and the developer of the WP Polylang Multilingual plugin (Frederic Demarle).
      This was because the following problem occurred:
      Anything Boxes showed all posts of two languages (Dutch and English) on the respective static frontpages for each language. It should of course have filtered posts for Dutch language on the Dutch frontpage and English on the English frontpage.
      The solution to this problem was simple in the end. When duplicating a page for use in another language the settings for Anything Boxes were not copied to the new page and I should have set these settings manually again on the new page. I wasn't aware of this, but it makes sense. Because of this the pages didn't know how to differentiate between posts from different languages.
      The dev of Polylang told me that Polylang is currently smart enough to synchronize metas like Featured images and page templates but it does not work out of the box with metas created by plugins and themes but (according to Frederic) it is rather easy to add them in the list using the filter 'pll_copy_post_metas'.
      He mentions that he is not sure that these 'PageLines Meta Settings' are stored in post meta but that would make sense according to him. He asks if the Pagelines dev team will be interested to support this feature in the future.
      I'm also wondering if you will consider adding Polylang translation support for manually editable strings like the 'Read more…' strings in Pagelines Settings.
      Well that's of course up to you but I thought to let you know to be able to take this into consideration. I also post this for other users in case they experience the same kind of trouble and are looking for an answer.
      Best regards,

      I am using the shortcodes for tabs, as described in the documentation.

      When I insert the following code:

      [pl_tabs][pl_tabtitlesection type="tabs"] [pl_tabtitle number="1"]Title 1[/pl_tabtitle] [pl_tabtitle number="2"]Title 2[/pl_tabtitle] [/pl_tabtitlesection] [pl_tabcontentsection] [pl_tabcontent active="yes" number="1"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [pl_tabcontent number="2"] Lorem ipsum dolor sit amet, consectetur adipiscing elit [/pl_tabcontent] [/pl_tabcontentsection] [/pl_tabs]

      I get a strange output (in the attachment).

      Any ideas?

      Thanks in advance!
