Boxes question? Looking for a plugin
AnonymousApril 6, 2013 at 5:59 pm #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:
<a href="link address">
<img src="path to image" border="0" />
And in custom css:
You will need to change the width value, and add other style items like border, background, etc.

Thanks. I’m going to give it a try now.

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.

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.
