ContentBox / Random Text?

Recommended Posts


Is there a way to pull text into the content box from a given set of static files so that they rotate or display at random? Say all files from category X or all files tagged X? I want to be able to define a set of files and have them rotate when ever the a page is loaded.

Hi, Unfortunately, that is not possible with the ContentBox section, if you wish to have this kind of functionality, you will either need to create your own section. If you're unsure how to do this, I recommend you contact one of our Pros for assistance. http://www.pagelines.com/pros/

      I use DMS 2.1.7 and am having a serious problem.
      When I edit a content in the item (ex. iBox), it affects to same item in other template page. For example, if I change a content in the iBox in the template A, the change affects to the iBox in the template B. This occurs not only iBox but iCallout, as well.
      Why this happens and how I avoid? Because of this, I cannot create a page.

      Hi there,
      I loaded my site onto a new host last night (new domain as well) and I noticed that the Rapid Tabs section now has lines around it with a different look. I am trying to remove the lines and the way the tabbed section looks and return it to default. http://officialgenaleenolin.com.previewdns.com/
      I tried messing with CSS but nothing is happening. Thanks for your help in advance.
      --NOTE: I signed out and the RapidTabs section went back to normal. This is happening only when I'm signed into DMS. I also noticed my DMS control panel has some weird styling as well.

      Hey guys, for some reason I can't seem to figure out how to edit a ContentBox that I've placed in the footer. My current site (not built with Pagelines, I'm in the process of replacing it) shows the way I'd like the footer to look, and I know how to accomplish this with a ContentBox, but I am stuck on how to edit the actual content of that section. I was able to drag it in there in the Page Template area no problem, and I've tried putting content there using the Sitewide Defaults for the ContentBox section, but that changes other ContentBox sections I have elsewhere on the site. Anyone have some advice?
      The site I'm working on is http://danmanders.com

      Thank you!
