Flip Boxes Element
Last Update: February 14, 2023
The Flip Boxes Element is great for grabbing the user’s attention and adding some interaction with your content. Flip Boxes have fully customizable content on the front and back side. They are fully integrated with the Font Awesome icon set and icon options like spin, rotate, flip. You can put a title on the front and backside, add buttons to your content, and the box height will extend based on the amount of content you use.
In Avada 5.9, we added a number of new effects and controls, including new flip effects, flip direction and duration, equal heights control, and the ability for background images. Read below for more details on this very graphic element, and watch the video for a visual overview.
How To Use The Flip Boxes Element
The Flip Boxes Element allows you to add cool, double sided boxes that “flip” when you mouse over them, anywhere in your content. There are both Parent Options, which affect the whole series of flip boxes, and child options for each Flip Box. This element has a number of parent options, and this is the place to start. Make sure to view the Flip Boxes Element Demo page here, to fully appreciate the different layouts and options on offer.
Move down the Parent Options, deciding how to style the Flip Boxes. Note that the first option is Number of Columns. This element can be inserted into any size column, and by choosing how many columns to display will determine how many Flip Boxes are displayed across the column width. If there are more items than the number of columns chosen, the remaining items will display on a new row below the first. If there are fewer item than the number of columns chosen, the full width of the column will not be used. You can choose a global icon here, or you can choose them individually, in the child item options. Configure the remaining parent options, keeping in mind, these are global options that will affect all flip boxes.
Once you have set all your Parent Options, you add Child Items on the left. Click the pen icon to edit the existing item. The Child Item Options Panel appears. Note that you can override a large number of global options here, customizing the individual flip boxes. You will see content and styling options for both the front side and back side of the boxes. Go through and configure one flip box at a time.
You can then duplicate existing, or create new, flip boxes by clicking on the Clone Item icon, or the + Flip Box button respectively.
Read below for a detailed description of all element options.
Note: The Default setting will use the global settings assigned for this element in the Options > Avada Builder Elements > Flip Boxes section. Also, please note that the displayed options screens below show ALL the available options for the element. If you have Avada’s Option Network Dependencies turned on, you will only see options relevant to your selections, and so the options screen may look somewhat different.
