Content Box affecting Classic Nav

Recommended Posts




I am using the latest pagelines and wordpress.


I have the classic nav sat underneath a contentbox being used as a header on all child pages. If I put a url link into the contentbox i.e:

<a href="http://www.aldaf.org.au">
<img alt="ALDAF" src=" http://aldaf.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Healthy_Culture_4.jpg">

It affects the look and functionality of the classic nav menu. See http://aldaf.org.au/about-us/ as an example



If I remove the link code

<img alt="ALDAF" src="http://aldaf.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Innovation_In_Health_Education_V2.jpg">

 It works fine - see



Is there something I can add to the contentbox CSS to still have the header link back to the home page without it impacting on the menu?

You failed to properly close the href.


This is what shows up as a result in viewing your site:

<div class="hentry-pad cb-standard-pad entry_content">
<img src=" http://aldaf.org.au/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/Healthy_Culture_4.jpg" alt="ALDAF">
<a href="http://www.aldaf.org.au"></a>
You see the href (link) is after the image, so the image itself is not linked.  I suspect that the browser threw the </a> in there, as you didn't add it before in your paste. 
Without a closing </a>, the link remains open. 
It finds an opportunity in the first menu tab beginning with A and continues there. If you inspect that, there's an invisible, unlabelled link to the same destination.   I'd recommend also, that at the end of your href, you close it not like this: "> but like this " />
See if that helps.

Not <a /> but </a>


Not org.au"/> but  org.au" />


Not src=" http but src="http


Whenever adding or crafting custom HTML, it's best to use the "By direct input" tab here: http://validator.w3.org/


That will tell you if you have any errors in your code.

      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
      The site I'd like to copy the footer from is http://phillydogschool.com
      Thank you!
