Just starting a new site and I want to be able to put feeds from different categories in boxes on the home pages i.e. newest Posts from category 1 go in box 1, posts from caterory 2 go in box 2 and posts from catergory 3 go in box three. Is there a way of doing this?

You may use a plugin like Special Recent Posts, configured with or without thumbnails, excerpts, dates. etc. I use this combined with WP Boxer plugin to create a single post (I use the title, excerpt, date and thumb).  I have also used RSS Feed Readers to pull lists too.

 

In all cases, I use the WP-Boxer plugin in place of Boxes because you can easily create customized, uniquely styled boxes (content blocks) within the same page. Something you cannot do with boxes.

      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? 
       
      Thanks!!

      Someone reported this little bit of weirdness to me today. They were using Internet Exporer. I used an emulator, and I received the same result. Please see the attached.
      The website is richcruzchicago.com.
      Thanks,

      Everything was fine with my site.
      Suddenly, strange characters are appearing in Boxes. See image. Site page is here. I even tried to add a new Boxes section but the same thing keeps happening, so I deleted the new section.
      How can I resolve this?
      Your help is greatly appreciated.
      Thank you.

      Hi,
      Could it be possible to add to the boxes an option so that if an Item has an optional link that we can also optionally make it open in a new windows.
      Thank you :-)
