Customizable – message blocks

  • Stanley


    Awesome Theme, I LOVE it. I do have one request / question….

    The “warning message blocks , important message blocks, etc” , is there a way to edit the image/name or to create a new type of this???

    I would like to create a “quotes” message box

    or “resources” or whatever….

    I don’t care if for now it is a hack, but maybe an idea for future options.





    Figured it out!!!

    you can see here:

    ** don’t forget to copy your .png image 48×48 to the /js/buttons/ directory

    in the style.css file you need to add/edit

    .quote_block {
    background: #679BCE url(js/buttons/quote.png) no-repeat scroll 10px 7px;
    border: 1px solid #090988;
    color: #030303;

    in the functions.php you need to add/edit:

    function quote_block_shortcode_handler( $atts, $content=null, $code="" ) {
    return '<div class="quote_block">' . $content . '</div>';
    add_shortcode( 'quote', 'quote_block_shortcode_handler' );

    I edited the mce-shortcodes.js in the js directory added:

    ed.addButton('quote', {
    title : ed.getLang('grapheneshortcodes.errortitle', 'Add a quote message block'),
    image : url+'/buttons/quote.png',
    onclick : function() {
    ' + ed.selection.getContent() + '

    but did not get the buttons added to the menu on the page/post edit.

    Any ideas??

    Those look awesome! I especially like the smoking hot one.

    I haven’t figured out how to add the buttons to the TinyMCE editor, but haven’t looked too much into it. This article tell show to add buttons through creating a plugin, but I’m not sure how to do it just through a child theme.

    (Don’t forget to put code between backticks.)




    Well, spent all day but have something AWESOME for you guys:

    I have a set of 17 icons in code to just cut and paste into the correct files!

    you can get ALL the info HERE:

    Included are samples of each one, and instructions how to edit colors images, etc.

    BTW this is my first attempt at a HACK!!

    Wahooo, it works!

    Thanks for those. They look great.

    BTW, I had an issue where I wanted to include one shortcode inside of another. It didn’t work. (Specifically, I created another shortcode so that I could mark single words within a paragraph as code. It didn’t work when I included it inside the about “smalltext” shortcode.

    A bit of nosing around in the WordPress Codex gave me the following tweak. Just add the following lines to the top of your functions.php file:

    define('FILTERPRIORITY', 10);
    add_filter('the_content', 'do_shortcode', FILTERPRIORITY);
    add_filter('widget_text', 'do_shortcode', FILTERPRIORITY);

    Does the trick.

    I haven’t had time to figure out the Tiny MCE buttons yet. Maybe later.
