I am currently using Pagelines DMS 1.0.4 and the Academy child theme (created by James Giroux) for my blog about pasta and wine. I would like to have separate single post templates when I'm posting pasta recipes and wine tasting notes, but I don't know how to create new templates for single posts in DMS. I have read a lot about how I must duplicate the single.php file in the theme folder and then rename the new file to something like single-post-recipe.php, but I don't know how I would assign the new file to specific single posts. I have downloaded the Custom Single Post Template plugin. Could this be used for this?
The Academy child theme refers to the DMS theme for editing the single.php file, but all I see in this file within the DMS template, is the following code. Should I just duplicate this file in the theme folder and rename it. And if so, how can I assign the new single post template to specific posts?
