Using Short Codes as Images for Boxes

Recommended Posts

I am trying to use the Font Awesome short codes as images in my boxes.

 

<i class="icon-coffee"></i> icon-coffee

 

<span class="ibox-icon-border pl-animation pl-appear pl-contrast media-type-icon pla-group animation-loaded" style=""><i class="icon-3x icon-tablet"></i></span>

 

Thus far, I have tried pasting the short codes into the content editor, as well as the fields for Boxes Image and Boxes Custom Class.

 

Not sure what I'm missing here (other than an in-depth knowledge of CSS).

 

Thanks!

All I want to accomplish here is to have something similar to the Pagelines demo.

I am using the Simplicitate theme flagstonesearchmarketing.com.

Right now, I have static images saved as Box Images, but I need to add new ones, and prefer Font Awesome.

Yes, Content Box.

That's what I meant.

Unfortunately, tutorial doesn't explain how to get the demo's effect.

It won't go anywhere. The pagelines documentation leaves a lot to be desired.

Well, first, I don't think you can use font-awesome images for boxes.

 

That said, you can use them in the Grid System, which could be used in place of the boxes. 

 

How do you apply the Grid System?  I use a universal sidebar, and place a text widget in there.  Within the text widget, I create the grid and where an image should go, I have a grid row element.  That's where I put the shortcode for font awesome.

      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.

      The Font Awesome 'Brand icons' do not render on the mobile version of this site.
      The other Font Awesome icons render fine, but the "Brand icons" do not render at all when viewed on mobile.
      Everything works normally when viewed on the PC.
      Any ideas why the brand icons will not render in the mobile version?
      The site is using DMS2 with all updates
