Second Row of Boxes

Recommended Posts

smitchell360

Is there a way to create a second row of boxes under the first boxes section? Basically, I'd like to show 3 boxes wide and then underneath it 5 boxes wide.

Digging into this a bit more, it seems that I should create a custom section? Maybe just copy the boxes PHP from core, modify and add to my child theme.

Given no custom template option yet, I am going to try to create a custom section. Is there a way to extend PageLinesBoxes directly or do I need to extend PageLinesSection ... and just copy over the existing PageLinesBoxes code into a new class? Basically, I just want to add a secondary boxes section that can pull from the existing pool of boxes post types. I don't want to have to create another custom content type. Been digging through the docs a bit and cannot find much guidance on this. Advice is appreciated.

Yeah, this is pretty advanced. If by extend you mean style wise, the width this should be pretty straight forward with CSS. For the technical stuff let's see if the developers have some insight, forwarding now. Thanks, Bryan

By "extend" i meant extend the PHP class to create a custom section. Any luck w/ the devs?
