Box Layouts allow you to combine text and image elements to create different types of stylish box layouts.
You can use box layouts to add an element of information under your products and services, the display an offer or to add a call to action on a banner. Limecube provides different box layouts with multiple designs to provide users with multiple options to display their products, services etc.
Boxes come with 3 different layouts for different usage.
- Text over image
- Text under image
- Text next to image
1. Text Over Image
This help video shows how to create a box style layout with text over a background image.
To add a Text Over Image box layout to your page:
- Select the page that you’d like to add the text over image box layout to.
- Click on the ‘+Add Element’ Icon on the Page's Header Bar
- Drag and Drop the Text Over Image icon (under Box Layouts) to the area of the page required.
- Open Single Box Edit by hovering your mouse over a box and clicking the edit icon.
- Create and edit a new box OR choose from existing boxes.
You have now added a text over image box layout to your page.
While the style editor allows you to set a site wide overlay filter, each box allows you to override the degree of transparency for each individual box set if you so choose.
Box Overlay colour
The overlay is quite important on this box set, as otherwise the text inside the box can be quite difficult to read. The colour of this filter feeds from the style editor options for the overlay colour.
- To change this overlay colour hover over the box set and you will see: in the right corner.
- Click this icon to open style options
- Scroll down to 'Background overlay colour and select your colour
- Next select 'Background overlay opacity' to change the level of transparency of the overlay colour.
It is important to note these styles control the design of any boxes across the site using this same layout.
