Layout Question - Full Width Content Below Sidebar

Recommended Posts

Hello, 

Forgive me if this has been asked before - I truly can't think of a better way to word it and I have searched the forum for "Full Width Content Below Sidebar" but without any joy.

Here's a doodle of what I'm trying to do (some people ask if I write with me feet, I hope you'll be kinder!).

I'm not looking to continue the "Main Content area" but I would like to include some additional content that fits into this space but which is unique to each of the 8 pages that match this Pagelines Template page on my site.  Is there a pagelines element (which might allow me to put in some freeform HTML) or something in the store which would be best suited to this?

Many thanks in advance for any advice or pointers :)

Ah there's something mentioned here http://demo.pagelines.me/sections/ called Content Box "Show anything in this like raw html and pepper corns." which might do the trick but I can't find it in my Pagelines install :(

Hi,

 

You can't have two instances of the Content Section on your site, as Wordpress only contains one content editor per page/post. So to create the layout you require you will most likely need to use the ContentBox and add that section beneath your Content section on the Page Template setup.

 

The ContentBox is a free section that was in the PageLines store when the store was for PageLines Framework, this is no longer the case. So in order to get the ContentBox section, you will need to contact our helpdesk, who will either add it to your account or attach it their reply.

Thanks Danny - the team at Pagelines emailed me a copy of the zip file but unfortunately it didn't come with any instructions. 

I tried the forum but... No results found for 'contextbox install'.   

 

Is there a guide hidden away on a old part of the site or was it never an issue when the Pagelines Framework store was running and handled the install?

Hello @bluesquirrel 

 

Do you have the Framework included content files? If not you can get them from https://www.dropbox.com/s/muyy8k5xcjvbvlo/Framework-included-content.zip

 

Within this zip file is another zip file called 'plugin-Pagelines-section.zip' - install this using the Wordpress install plugins method. 

 

Once installed - go to PageLines Store > section > add new sections and then add the zip file for 'contentbox' 


The answer to many issues can be found by searching in the forum before posting as someone else  may very well have had the same problem before you have.  Also, reading the documentation can help you gain a good understanding of how everything works.

Hi Martin, there's one called "plugin-pagelines-legacy-sections (3).zip"  but I can't see the file that you've mentioned I'm afraid.  Thank you for your help by the way

Extract the zip and inside there will be a number of zips, one of which is the section-contentbox. Upload the section-contentbox folder to your child themes sections folder.

 

wp-content/themes/child-theme-folder/sections/

Thank you Danny that worked and also thank you Martin for your earlier help - a team effort.

Just to help anyone else that stumbles across this.... in side the zip file I downloaded were many sections.

I pulled out section-contentbox (3).zip and uploaded it to mywebsite.com/wp-content/themes/pagelines/sections where I extracted it so that it was in its own folder contextbox

I then went back to the Pagelines Dashboard in Wordpress and added the Content Box to the page templates that I wanted it to appear in and that was that - all done :)

Thanks again guys and I hope this thread helps someone in the future.
