Text In Box Only Displaying In "bold".

Recommended Posts



Loving the options we're getting with our first Pagelines-based site. We're almost done, and on the last page I am running into a challenge;

We are adding boxes to the "staff" page. Picture on the left, text on the right.

Problem : I can not get the text in the box to be regular. It only displays as bold.

http://cyclerob.presentis.ca/a-propos/lequipe/ (see on the bottom, the rest is just testing and formatting - pardon my french ;) )

I have created this box like all the others before, then deleted and redid it to test, but the bold remains. Then I swore, then I checked the forum.

Any idea what may be causing this?

Somewhere in your code, the following exists:

strong {

    font-weight: bold;


To resolve it, please add the following to your Custom Code in CSS Rules:

.fboxtext  strong {

    font-weight: normal;

How would this one be different than the other 41 boxes created before? I have created a 2nd one on the same page, again, bold everything.

I'll take a look at the fix you suggest- I just like to understand the cause too.

Oh, and thanks for providing a solution, help is always appreciated!

Just curious to understand what may have caused this sudden change; as it was not intended, nor was anything added or adjusted to CSS overnight by anyone working on the site.

The only reason why all the text in a box would be bold, is incorrect markup such as <strong> Some Text <strong> if you're missing / at the end, it will cause issues.

Hi Danny,

We came to the same conclusion yesterday. One of the boxes had an unclosed <strong> tag, and every box saved or created after that was compromised - regardless of which page it was on. We found the right box, adjusted, and the others were fixed. The tags had been entered manually, in the HTML input part of the box creation.

Is there any way to have such a thing corrected in a future update? Would make sense to have boxes relatively independent from each other, no?

While we're at it, any way to make the boxes cooperate more with things like "return"? When entering text, hitting return or shift+return does not skip a line in the published text, which is why we had to go into the HTML in the first place. Would be great if we didn't have to. ;)

Glad we found it, and glad you confirmed it, though, thanks!

You may add the markup issue to tracking: http://www.pagelines.com/forum/tracdown/

As for the boxes/enter/return issue, the Boxes uses the WordPress editor, which is out of our control, but are you switching from HTML view to Visual view then updating the page or staying in HTML view and updating?

Please read the docs before posting. Please do not private message me unless I ask you to.

      Hi, even though I just got a SSL certificate, I can't get the green padlock to appear due to the following error:
      :A file with an insecure url of "http://yemoonyah.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-boxes/check.svg" was loaded via the javascript file: https://yemoonyah.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4 on line 3. The insecure URL may not be directly contained in the script file and may exist elsewhere."
      I figured if I delete and re-install the plugin it might fix the problem but will my boxes on the website still be there? Or do I have to redesign everything all over again if I delete the plugin and then re-install it?

      Hey all, hope I worded the topic correctly!
      I just need to know if either 1) I'm making a mistake or 2) this could be set as a new feature?
      Using the global settings typography parameters, I have a global paragraph font type (set using googlefonts) and have set the style to align:justify. When laying out <p> text inside a simple TEXT module, the <p> text adheres to both the font type and justification. Perfect.
      Now, when I set <p> text inside the PARAGRAPH TEXT field within an ELEMENT module, the <p> text adheres to the font type, but not the justification. It's rather annoying as I like to fully justify para text across the board and tend to use Element modules instead of text boxes for various reasons. It also seems silly that some PARAGRAPH TEXT fields adopt global settings, whilst other don't.
      Or I'm doing it wrong :S
      Any help or advice is much appreciated!

      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?
