Pagelines Boxes option in DMS?

Recommended Posts


In the old pagelines framework there was a section called boxes. You could create sets of content that you could randomly display in groups on various pages. I want to do something like that in DMS. Any suggestions as to how?


I do not want to use iBoxes. As far as I can see, I would have to manually create a new set for each page. I have 9 iBox style items that I want to display in a group of three and have them live at the bottom of each page. When you go to a new page, I want to different set of the three to show and so on.

I looked into Flipper and this is close, but I really liked the simplicity of the old Boxes tool. I just want an image with one line of text beneath it that just displays and not allows you jump to the post.

Unfortunately, the Boxes section isn't available in DMS. The only suggestion I can give you give if you do not want to use the iBoxes section is for you to either use the MediaBoxes section. However, by using the MediaBoxes section, you will need not be able to create sets like you could with the Boxes and instead will have to resort to creating them on a template by template basis. Alternatively, you could use the Masonic or Flipper and use custom post types.

      Hi, even though I just got a SSL certificate, I can't get the green padlock to appear due to the following error:
      :A file with an insecure url of "http://yemoonyah.com/wp-content/plugins/pl-section-boxes/check.svg" was loaded via the javascript file: https://yemoonyah.com/wp-includes/js/jquery/jquery.js?ver=1.12.4 on line 3. The insecure URL may not be directly contained in the script file and may exist elsewhere."
      I figured if I delete and re-install the plugin it might fix the problem but will my boxes on the website still be there? Or do I have to redesign everything all over again if I delete the plugin and then re-install it?

      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?

      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.

      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.
