The Boxes feature is a great way to create segmented spaces for content that requires special attention. This guide will show you how to create a box and customize it.
To view some examples of Boxes, click on our Core demo site.
Access Boxes by clicking the "Boxes" tab in your WordPress administration panel. You can create a new box using two ways.
Add New Box Setup Refer to the image "Add New Box Setup"
Box Editor Overview Refer to the image "Box Editor Overview"
Adding the text content to your box is as simple as creating a new post or regular page since it uses the same visual editor.
Adding a box to a box set allows you to categorize boxes into sets for better organization. You can add a box to a set by selecting one category or more.
Let's say that you want to add your new box to an existing set called "default-boxes".
The Box MetaPanel includes settings for adding an image and entering a link for your box image and box title.
The last step in creating your new box is saving and publishing it.
One of the best things about Boxes is that they can be grouped in different sets to keep them organized. This guide will show you how to create Box Sets.
Access the Box Sets by clicking on "Box Sets" under the Boxes tab in your WordPress Administration Panel.
Box Sets Overview Refer to the image "Box Sets Overview"
Creating a new Box Set is as simple as creating a new post category since it utilizes the same settings format. The set can be created first and the desired boxes can be added to it later on.
Now that you have your new Box Set, it's time to add boxes to it. I'm going to add an existing box (called "Add-On Marketplace") as an example.
Alternatively, you can open the editor for an existing Box, select the Box Set on the right side of the editor in the "Box Sets" section, and click on "Update" to save the box.
PageLines gives you the freedom to add Boxes to specific page types. This guide will show you how to enable Boxes on a page.
Access the Template Setup by clicking on "Templates" under the PageLines Tab in your WordPress administration panel.
Let's say that you want to add Boxes below the Page Content in a Default Page. I'll use this example to demonstrate how to enable the Boxes using Template Setup.
Once the Boxes section is enabled in the "Active Sections" area, the template will save automatically and you're all set.
Refer to the image "Box Meta Settings Overview"
The Box Meta Settings allow you to customize how Boxes are displayed on an individual page. You can access them by selecting a page to edit and clicking the "Boxes Section" tab in the PageLines Meta Settings.
Click "Save Meta Settings" to save your options.
