multiple box sets, individual borders?

Recommended Posts


Currently I have three box sets on the home page of a site I'm building. I am trying to create a border around all sets but I'm not getting the ID/Class right because it keeps putting a border around each individual box set. you can see the page here: http://prodigeemarketing.com/

This is the code that I'm using:

body.page-id-19 #boxes .content {border-left: 2px solid #252C46; border-right: 2px solid #252C46;}

body.page-id-19 #boxes .content {border-top: 2px solid #252C46; }

body.page-id-19 #boxes .content {border-bottom: 2px solid #252C46; }

I need the border-top to only be on the very top box set and the border-bottom to only be on the very bottom box set.

Any help is really appreciated!

You can try with

.grid-element, .media_overview {

border: 2px solid #252C46;}

But I´m not sure :)

Hello Steves

Well, I love CSS so I'll try to help you! :)

Look at the picture, that is what you want?


I did this using the "Inspect element in Chrome."

Look now, as was done this test:



I tried to modify the following selectors:

#dynamic-content .outline{

border: 2px solid #252C46;

padding: 10px 0px;

width: 78%;

display: block;

position: relative;

margin: 0 10%;

box-shadow: inset 0 0 6px #000;


I confess that it can present itself in different set of browsers such as IE and FF!

You may need to add something to the box, such as: "#boxes".

Worth a try!

I hope I helped! :)

Thanks all for the help. Unfortunately, the suggested methods didn't accomplish what I was looking for. However, I have now decided to go with other options that were accomplished quicker.

It'd be great to get an answer on this in the future, but for now we can close this question.

      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!
