Hello, is there any working base template (not the blank one) so i can see how you guys create a template, coz at the moment i only able to use css override through setting panel... really want to create different layout with pagelines.

Hello,

To add a new template with drag and drop functionality, simply follow the instructions below.

1. Create a File called page.[page-id].php to this folder, i.e. page.homepage.php

2. In the new file add the following code:

Change Custom Page to whatever you want to call your template and then upload the new template to either your Child themes folder or if you're using the PageLines Customisation plug-in, upload the template file to the PageLines Customisation folder.

3. Thats it! We do the rest for you! If you go to your Wordpress Admin Dashboard > PageLines > Templates, your newly created template should be visible and ready to use!!!

Hi Xperia, Do as I suggested above to create a custom page template but instead of following my instructions on uploading it to your child theme, upload the custom page template you created to the PageLines Customisation plug-in folder instead.
