How to Create and Manage BM Box Grids

In a previous FAQ we introduced to the the 'BM Box'. The 'BM Box' is a navigation and panel element that provides information in a format that was deliberately designed to emulate the general presentation of the Lender Widgets on your website. The BM Box is created in Yabber or Elementor, and a number of attributes apply that'll alter how each container is returned. This FAQ will not look at BM Box creation, so you should consult the article titled "How to Create and Manage Website BM Boxes" for guidance.

BM Panel: Other navigation and information panels are available, such as the more robust 'BM Panel'. The Panel is a more recent addition that offers multiple display formats and allows for more creative freedoms.

This FAQ will introduce you to the BM Box Grid, or rows of BM Boxes.

The reason for the Grid is clear: as with virtually all other website elements, you may update your website information completely within Yabber and without having to mess around with website design.

  The Result

If you're familiar with the primary 'Services ' or 'Home Loan' pages, you'll be familiar with how these grids are used. The block of Boxes below were created, styled, and grouped in Yabber as an example, and it's the basic grid of boxes that we'll look at in this FAQ.

Creating a BM Box Grid may be accomplished with Elementor or shortcode, and we'll show you both methods.

  Yabber's BM Box Module

You will find the BM Box module by first following the 'Contentus' icon in the the 'Website' module. You should then select the 'Box' submenu item.

  Creating a BM Box Grid

The grid is created entirely in Yabber, so you should ensure that you have created a default style. For the purpose of the demo above, we've also created eight individual boxes, and while you might use these boxes individually, we'll group all eight of them into a 'Group'.

We'll group our individual Boxes via the 'Groups' panel. Drag and drop each Box in your collection into the order they'll be shown on your page, and selectively toggle them on of off to include them in your collection. Once done, select 'Save'.

  Pictured: We'll group our individual Boxes via the 'Groups' panel. Drag and drop each Box in your collection into the order they'll be shown on your page, and selectively toggle them on of off to include them in your collection. Once done, select 'Save'.

Yabber is a multi-website system so we're going to have to update those websites that require the new data. Select the 'Send' panel, select your website, and submit. Once your website is update the Grid will become available as a shortcode or Elementor option.

Send BM Box Data to Website

  BM Box Grid with Shortcode

The shortcode required to return a BM Box is found within the 'Review' panel (pictured), or on later frameworks, from the BM Shortcode option attached to the WP WYSIWYG Editor. Copy this shortcode in the location you would like your Grid to be shown, and 'Save'. The format of the shortcode will be similar to the following: [bmbox_grid collection="group-collection-id"].

Copy this shortcode in the location you would like your Grid to be shown, and 'Save'. The format of the shortcode will be similar to the following: [bmbox_grid collection="group-collection-id"].

Note that the 'Review' panel itself allows you to selectively removed or reorder content from your Box Grid

  BM Box Grid with Elementor

To use the grid with Elementor, search 'BM Box'. Select 'BM Box Grid' and drag it onto your page. Select the Grid and Style you created in Yabber, optionally define the height applied to all boxes, and set the margin above each row. The Grid will render. Click 'Save'.

BM Box Elementor

  Pictured: To use the grid with Elementor, search 'BM Box'. Select 'BM Box Grid' and drag it onto your page. Select the Grid and Style you created in Yabber, optionally define the height applied to all boxes, and set the margin above each row. The Grid will render. Click 'Save'.

Rate Placeholders: Remember that each box supports Rate Placeholders. You wouldn't use the BM Box as a replacement for the Lender Widget, but it's nice to know that they're available when required. Since the BM Box includes lender rate data, we cache the Box for up to two days

The Elementor options is obviously ridiculously easy to use, and it is generally the preferred option.

  Review and Edit Box Groups

You may review and edit each Box and Group from the 'Review' panel. Select the green icon to return information on each asset, and the 'Edit' icon to return you to the applicable edit page.
