Changing The Boxes Section

Recommended Posts


I need to create some boxes that has text above the image and then a link below. I don't think I can do this using the Boxes section but I can achieve it by making small changes to the Boxes section. I know I can't edit the section in the Pagelines theme so I copied the Boxes section to plugins/pagelines-sections but then and made changes but this resulted in me having two columns of boxes so obviously I wasn't doing this quite right.

I then thought that I don't really need a separate Boxes menu item, I just need the boxes to display differently so I copied the Boxes section from the Pagelines theme and put it in my custom theme under 'Sections' thinking that if I had this folder then it would override the Pagelines folder but it doesn't seem to have worked.

Any advice on how to do this?

The solution is WP Boxer plugin. This has 9 prebuilt formats for boxes, which it changes into Content Blocks. You can also add these by shortcode anywhere, while our default boxes are limited.

I'd recommend undoing the changes you made, implementing Boxer plugin and applying the layout you want with the options in the plugin.

Thanks for your message Rob. This morning I discovered that what I'd been doing had worked it's just that I'd forgotten to upload my changes - how embarrassing. I obviously needed to go to sleep last night and wasn't thinking logically.

      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?

      I need some help!  I am trying to add a Square booking script.  When I add it to a embed section it crashes the page editor and I am unable to save the page version.  I have tried using different browsers with the same result.
       I can add the script on the backend in the word press content area and get it to show and work, but it look terrible.  A page with in a page.  http://www.zoeanastacia.com/booking/.
      I need help getting the page editor to work properly or to make the wp content section to not look like an 90's iframe.

      I tried to make a simple change on my opt-in page today by reordering two sections.
      Now they won't save and whatever I do, the same 2 section will be stuck to the top.
      This is a huge problem since it is my opt-in page!
      (I'm on the latest WP & PL version)
