How Do I Add Boxes To A Post?

Recommended Posts

I'd like to add boxes that I created to the bottom of my blog posts.

I'm having a hard time understanding how to do that along with how to differentiate what "box set" to display.

Can someone help point me in the right direction?

Thanks!

Stu

Hi Stu

If you go to your drag and drop page. Pagelines>Drag & Drop and select 'content area' on the right hand layout image. Then scroll down a little and click on the tab that says 'blog post'. Scroll down and you'll see your list of active sections on the right. Slide the boxes section from the right hand column into the left. You now have boxes active on your posts.

The chose the box set you wish to display, you'll need to select it in the meta settings when creating a post. In the edit post page, scroll down to the meta settings below, and they'll be a tab for boxes. You can select the required box set in there prior to publishing the page :)


Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

I'm having a similar problem. Your solution above does work, but I had to import over 900 blog posts into this framework. Do I have to manually go to each post to do this? Or is there a global solution.

Dennis, there are three options:

  1. Make your boxes the ONLY set, so only they display on all posts.
  2. Use some PHP/MYSQL script to add the page_meta to each post ( complicated )
  3. Invent a time machine.

Personally id go with option 1 ;)

since we have about 50 box sets, we'll have to resort to option 2. Thank you

      The images are forced into a boxed frame so that you can't see the whole picture. Doesn't look so good. Is this a bug? A feature? How can I fix it?

      The recent WP update seems to be quite cheeky...messing about with a number of things. 
       
      Having trouble with boxes displaying differently in different browsers.  1st screen shot is Chrom...looks ok. 
      2nd screenshot is Firefox...colors are different. Icons are different. Have weird 1000's next to the icons. Any idea what's going on? 
       
      Thanks!!

      Someone reported this little bit of weirdness to me today. They were using Internet Exporer. I used an emulator, and I received the same result. Please see the attached.
      The website is richcruzchicago.com.
      Thanks,

      Hi,
      How can I remove the "next post" links below each post page?

      Before we had a related post section, but I can't find it among any functions, widgets etc.

      Everything was fine with my site.
      Suddenly, strange characters are appearing in Boxes. See image. Site page is here. I even tried to add a new Boxes section but the same thing keeps happening, so I deleted the new section.
      How can I resolve this?
      Your help is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.
