Hi danmeeler

You can try add in

PageLines > Site Options > Custom Code > CSS Rules

.widget .widget-pad {border: 1px solid;}

To add a border, this is only an example.

It is advisable to learn how to do this on your own too.

Check out http://www.pagelines...wiki/Custom_CSS

If you need more CSS help, make sure you've downloaded Firebug for Firefox

and check out W3 Schools for more info.

Hi Dan

You'll be able to achieve this using Css, the code batman's provided you shows the classes that need to be edited in order to get the effect you want. We suggest you use something like firebug (www.getfirebug.com) in order to locate the name of the areas you wish to edit. W3 schools is an excellent starting point for learning css, and if you're looking to make advanced customizations to your site this is the best place to start :-)

In the meantime this sounds like the effect you were looking to achieve.


.widget .widget-pad {

    background: none repeat scroll 0 0 rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.4);

    border-radius: 5px 5px 5px 5px;

    box-shadow: 0 1px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);

    padding: 5px;

}

Unfortunately you won't be able insert an image into the widget title as it won't accept html code. However you could add this into the body of the widget above the contact form as this area will allow html.

Here's an example of how to insert an image using html

<img src="full url to your image.jpg" alt="my image" width="304" height="228">


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 tried that but it didn't work. This is what is in my CSS/Less Rules area

body{.widget .widget-pad {

background: none repeat scroll 0 0 rgba(255, 255, 255, 0.4);

border-radius: 5px 5px 5px 5px;

box-shadow: 0 1px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);

padding: 5px;

}

The section needs to come in slightly to see the effect. Add margin:5px to that code


.widget .widget-pad {

    border-radius: 5px 5px 5px 5px;

    box-shadow: 0 1px 4px rgba(0, 0, 0, 0.4);

    margin: 5px;

    padding: 10px;

}

      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,

      Hi!

      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!
