Integrating Icon Boxes: What they are and how to use them

Living in a fast-paced world is sometimes more challenging than we can think of, especially online, where things move even faster. Sometimes it’s hard to reach people when they don’t have the patience to read endless lines of words. For this reason, I’m going to tell you how to add attractive and responsive eye-catching elements that help you present ideas in a compelling way.

Icon Boxes are a great addition to homepages for listing key unique selling points, or to highlight your website’s main areas of content. They can be used to draw attention to important facts, moments, add contact dates, information, and anything else you think of.

You can use this feature by accessing the tagDiv Composer page builder, the Multipurpose shortcodes section, and drag it wherever you like on the page. Icon boxes are great for breaking the monotony, and they give your readers short titles that they can easily recall.
The element consists of an icon, the title text, and a description. For a fast start, you can use one of the multiple pre-made style presets.

In the General tab, you will find the following four icon font packs: Font Awesome, Typicons, Open Iconic, and tagDiv Multi-purpose, from which you can choose the one that best suits your needs.


Customizing the selected icon is easy since the Composer has neatly organized options for size and spacing. This tab lets you change the title and description, add or erase a button, and adjust the horizontal alignment.

In the Style tab, there are different layouts that you can pick out for your icon box, such as animated, with/without button or description, with shadow, or with the icon on the right/left side.

We all know that it’s easy to remember something when it is associated with an image, so use this in your favor and catch people’s eyes!

Split your row into multiple columns and play with the icon boxes! If you want to recreate one that you like, save the hassle and click on the Box >Duplicate Element, and move it into the next column. If you plan to add it later to a different page, save the shortcode and find it in the Composer, next to the other elements!
