I'm new to pagelines and am trying to figure out of this is possible:

1. Is it possible to have different categories (e.g. ?cat=15) governed by different templates? I want each category to have its own look and feel but as far as I can tell there is only one meta for categories pages.

2. Is there a way to pull posts into a page? For example using a shortcode. I want to be able to pull blog posts into my static homepage

Thanks

Sorry, I am not clear on this as it is not working.
  • I created a static page (homepage) and selected a template (5) and made some adjustments.
  • I created another static page (blog) and selected a template (4) and made some adjustments. I'm not sure what is meant by nothing in the field. Does this mean no page content?
  • am Changed Reading settings to static page - frontpage=homepage, posts page=blog

Am I doing something wrong? All I see on the homepage is the static homepage.

I'm getting somewhere slowly with question 2.

As far as I can tell if I use the solution above the homepage meta comes from the blog posts meta - i.e. I cannot have the homepage configured uniquely without it copying the standard blog template. Is this correct?

Question 1 remains an issue. In fact it is related to above. Is it possible to have different categories (e.g. ?cat=15) governed by different templates?

here is an image to illustrate the problem. All my homepage meta settings are been ignored in favour of the generic blog page template.

I need to be able to keep individual page meta.

Is this a bug?

Please try deactivating all active plugins to see if the problem persists.

I think I figured out out. When I republished the page the issue went away.

I installed Anything Boxes to get the posts in a page functionality.
