Box Border And Box Background Colour

Recommended Posts


Hello, I'm using Pagelines 2.3.5 I'm very new at websites and my CSS is absolute beginner!

If anyone could please help with the code I'd need to create an individual box border on each box in a box set I'd be very happy.

Currently I have 3 boxes in a box set sitting next to each other. I wish to put a border around each one. Is this possible.

So far I've used the custom code

#boxes{border:1px solid #ffffff;}

This puts a border around all 3 boxes as one. Not a border around each box.

Also is it possible to change the background colour of the box? I'm using black as the content colour and would like to create white boxes with grey borders around each one.

Any help would be great. Thanks!!

Each box created can be given a custom class, you can use the custom class option to add individual styling to each box.

To add a border to each box, use the following code and change the color to your preferred choice.

.fbox {
border: 1px solid red;

Hi, I just put that code into the box custom class and nothing happens. Also tried it in the page itself in the custom class for the boxes on that page also nothing happens.

It does work if I put it in the in the Global Setting Custom Code. So thank you!

Only thing now is the text within the box sits up against the border, how do I indent the text off the border?

Also did you know of the code that would change the background colour of the box?

Thanks for helping.

What you added to the custom class option is CSS and not a class, thats why it didn't work. The way that option works, is you add a custom class for example,

then you add custom CSS for that class in your custom code for example,
.hello { background-color: red; }[/code]

So this means that any box which has the hello class will have a background color of red.

If you wish to increase the space between the text and your border, add the following to the code I gave you above.

[code]padding: 15px;[/code]
So your code should look something like this:
.fbox {
border: 1px solid #E1E1E1;
padding: 15px;

      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!
