iBox counter - Change annotation from "," to "."

Recommended Posts


Hi you all!


Anyone knows how to change the annotation in the iBox counter?


Right now it uses the comma instead of a point.

Like this: 1,000

But I want it like this: 1.000

That would require customizing the section which isn't something we provide support for. However, you're free to create a child section via a child theme and do the customization yourself.

Hi Danny!


So by standard you simply rule out half of planet Earth that uses the other way of writing down things?

      Is it possible to have any other numbers in the counter of iProduct extension than the ones listed? Anything above 1000?

      I've added a number option (ie the first box has a 1 next to or above, second box has 2, etc) to iBoxes in DMS (as a custom section), and I'd like that for PL5 Boxes as well. Adding it for iBox was quite easy:
      First this: 'opts' => array( 'icon' => array( 'name' => __( 'Icon Font', 'pagelines' ) ), 'count' => array( 'name' => __( 'Counter', 'pagelines' ) ), 'image' => array( 'name' => __( 'Images', 'pagelines' ) ), 'numb' => array( 'name' => __( 'Number', 'pagelines' ) ), 'text' => array( 'name' => __( 'Text Only, No Media', 'pagelines' ) ) And then this } elseif( $media_type == 'numb' ){ $background = ($color) ? sprintf('<span class="invert-icon" style="background-color: %s;"></span>', $color) : ''; $media_html = sprintf( '<i class="iii icon iboks-number" style="%s">%s</i>%s', $text_color, $count, $background ); } And some CSS (though I used the style for icon mostly). iBox already did know which number the box had in the sequence, so adding the number was quite simple. 
      The Boxes code, and PL5 code in general, is a bit mor complex with javascript (with Knockout) and php, and some CSS cheats. It took me a while to figure out how it works, and I'm not sure I quite grasp it yet.
      Adding a number option to the media array is the same as iBox:
      array( 'key' => 'ibox_media', 'type' => 'select', 'opts' => array( 'icon' => array( 'name' => __( 'Icon Font', 'pl-section-boxes' ) ), 'count' => array( 'name' => __( 'Counter', 'pl-section-boxes' ) ), 'boxnumb' => array( 'name' => __( 'Numbering', 'pl-section-boxes' ) ), 'image' => array( 'name' => __( 'Images / SVG', 'pl-section-boxes' ) ), 'text' => array( 'name' => __( 'Text Only, No Media', 'pl-section-boxes' ) ) ), 'default' => 'icon', 'label' => __( 'Select iBox Media Type', 'pl-section-boxes' ), ), In the section template I'll add a line for the boxnumber. In addition I have to add variuous boxnumb classes in the build.less file to make it hidden by default and style it.
      function section_template(){ ?> <script type="text/html" id="boxes-template"> <a class="boxes" data-bind="class: boxclass() + ' pl-col-sm-' + $root.ibox_cols(), plhref: link" > <div class="boxes-pad" data-bind="class: 'pl-control-'+ $root.ibox_format()"> <div class="boxes-media media-left"> <span class="the-boxes-media pl-animation pl-appear" data-bind="class: 'media-'+$root.ibox_media(), style: { color: color, width: $root.image_width() + 'px', opacity: $root.image_opacity}"> <div class="pl-image" data-bind="plbg: image, class: $root.image_format"></div> <span class="pl-counter" data-bind="pltext: count"></span> <span class="pl-boxnumb" data-bind="pltext: ?numbervalue?"></span> <i class="boxes-icon pl-icon" data-bind="class: 'pl-icon-'+icon()"></i> </span> </div> <div class="boxes-text media-right"> <h3 class="boxes-title" data-bind="pltext: title"></h3> <div class="boxes-desc" data-bind="pltext: text"></div> </div> </div> </a> </script> Where I'm stuck is how to get the number to supply to pltext. Since the boxes are numbered in the configuration panel (showing as Item 1, Item 2, ...) I guess there is something in the code that could give me the box number, but what would that be? Finding it in the pure php code of iBox was quite easy, but the Javascript-Knockout.js-PHP code in PL5 isn't that easy to read. 
      I realise that I'm developer terrority now, but I'd appreciate any help. I guess this could be useful for more people if get it to work. Maybe it should be added as a standard option? "X things you need to know" or similar is staple website content and the Boxes section is ideal for that with numbers. On our website the "X things you need to know"-pages is half our traffic.

      I'd like to have the images in iBox to look different with the following CSS. This works when manipulating the CSS with Inspect element in Chrome, but I can't get it to work as a class. Here's the class:
      .imagecontain {     border-radius: 1px;     background-size: contain;     background-repeat: no-repeat;       } This is from my style.less in the child theme. I applied the class to the iBox with custom class option, though nothing happens. How to fix that? How do I target only the div with the image in with CSS?
