PBox

Customizable presentation widget to display posts, pages, external content, links, images, and plain text in a customized style.

PBox lets you create widgets to display content from pages, posts, and external URLs; you can also display customizable links, text, and images. Easily stylize your presentation box widget with your own custom HTML and CSS. Incorporate your styles as part of your theme for multi-themed projects or make it part of the plugin for modularity.

With PBox, you can standardize the display of custom content in the sidebar with your own themes.

Bring attention to important notices or information with the provided example "Alert" style!

  • For pages/posts/files, display a link with (optionally) the content or excerpt.
  • Display (optionally filtered) external content from another page or site with the External URI type.
  • Display thumbnails of your media library images, with the option to display in full size with Fancybox!

Tips

  • PBox is fully compatible with the XWidgets plugin, allowing users to add PBoxes (and other widgets) to their page sidebars on a per page basis.

  • You can add a filter to the content extracted from External URIs with 'pbox-external-content'

  • If you have a PBox with a media image, it will use the FancyBox plugin to enable full-view of the image if you click on it.
