Boxes question? Looking for a plugin

  • Anonymous

    #7212

    I am looking for a plugin that will create boxes on my home page. By this I want to divide a page into 4 boxes with an image and some text. Clicking on the image will bring you to a specific area of the website. I have worked around this by creating images with links, but I want it to look more formal or separated. I tried a plugin called Pods which in the description might have been the answer. Unfortunately either because of some other plugin I have or the theme itself, it immediately crashed the site and I had to go remove the plugin. Is there something anyone know that will give me the effect I am looking for.

    Please take a look at what I am trying to accomplish. Since I went to the wider format I’ve yet to readjust the spacing of the boxes in hope of finding a better way. If I can’t then I will adjust the page differently. I use the theme in wide screen. A lot of profession speakers are ding this kind of thing.

    Thanks for the help.

    Try using the html editor:

    <div class="mg-front-box">
    <a href="link address">
    <img src="path to image" border="0" />
    </a>
    <p>Some text.</p>
    </div>

    And in custom css:

    .mg-front-box {
    float: left;
    width: 250px;
    text-align: center;
    }

    You will need to change the width value, and add other style items like border, background, etc.

    OK- Gave it a try. For me it’s not enough information. I’m not even sure I was in the editor. I’ve on occasion done some editing, but I need a bit more direction. I’ve edited the header before. Not sure that is the same area to begin even.

    That’s why I was hoping for a plugin. I use Graphene for 4 sites right now and am thinking of using it on a 5th, but for that and really for this one I need to create some boxes.

    Thanks again.

    Um, not the editor that’s listed under “Appearance”. I meant the html editor when you edit the page, as opposed to the visual editor.

    Ha- Now that makes more sense to me. I’ll give that a try as soon as I get back.

    I couldn’t figure it out, though it did lead me down a path where I figured out how to space boxes out and add boarders to give it more of the look I want. I try again tonight. I’m just a bit behind on the directions.

    Thanks
