Also, can you make a little change in CSS so that the title text is wrapped to a fixed height. Somethink like available in widgets by Taboola.. As oon as you hover, it shows you the complete title. The widget will look much cleaner when different post with different title length are pulled.

You can see the widget in action at the end of the post here ..  http://www.bloomberg.com/news/2013-05-14/blackberry-ceo-unveils-q5-model-in-four-colours.html

Hey, have you installed it on your site?

 

Do you just want a walk through of the admin panel shown below (page options) or are you not up to that stage yet?

The text itself or the hover? currently the hover height is fixed and if the title is too long the extra is hidden.

First make sure its activated

Pagelines -> store -> sections -> your added sections -> find it and activet (if not already)

 

Drag the section where you want

 

Pagelines -> drag & drop -> you should see the section in the options, put it where you want

 

Choose the options

Pagelines -> page options -> choose the location and you should see the admin pannel options looking as shown in my previous picture.

I noticed one critical issue after which I have disabled the section. You have set H1 Tag for the post title. If I enable this section to show 4 post, four more H1 Tags get added to the page which is extremely alarming for SEO purpose. Your site might even be penalized by Google.

 

Let me know if you are planning to fix it...

Hi, h1 tags arent that import for seo anymore, google looks at things like size and position more now.

 

That said i will change this to h3 in the next update (probably today or tomorrow) which brings it in line with pagelines boxes

      Hi, I installed your Featured Picture Box section, found the config area in the 'page Options', but I can't see how I apply this to boxes, there doesn't appear to be anything in the boxes area, and there is no WP menu item for Featured Picture Boxes. How do I do this? Urgent advice appreciated as I have to get some boxes running with a hover tonight!

      Hi there - first of all I guess I should ask how / where I should post my question as there doesn't seem to be a 'place' for it.  It concerns adjusting the size for the Featured Picture Box section which I just purchased. I contacted the developer Ryan Varley who suggested I should go to (http://www.pagelines.com/forum/forum/68-store-products/) to post my question so that it can help other people. However there is no option to place a question for Ryan Varley sections and under the Pagelines section there is no option for Featured Picture Boxes. 
       
      I would like to resize the boxes as my understanding is that they change dynamically depending on the size of the container they are in. So for example if i have 3 boxes they will be much larger than having 4 boxes in a row. Ryan said to change the padding via css but after looking at the page with the developer tools in Chrome I have no idea how to do this. I have selected and changed padding values for everything I can find relating to the boxes on the page but only seem to be able to chop off the top/bottom of the box or change the navigation menu placement ! I have temporarily solved the problem by just placing 4 boxes on the row but I would like to have only 3 so any help would of course be greatly appreciated.
       
      Thanks and regards,
      Richard

      Hi Ryan,
       
      Currently, the images floats and occupy almost entire width of the sidebar. How can I add padding? Also, is there any way to show thumbmail images in smaller size of my choice apart from adding to Boxes? Suppose I want to show 150x150 image into 120x120. Is it possible? If not, can you add the feature pls.
       
      Also, I want to add widget title for the section i added to the sidebar. You can check my site, the section is live. how can I add it?
