I think I am having a similar issue as this one, but still not getting the the content to be idependent of the template as I would like. Here is my issue:
I have a template called "Products" This template is shared between 5 different pages/products.
Obviously, the WP Content/Loop is unique on every page, but I would like a full width hero image to also be unique on each page (ideally controlled through the page or a widget and not through the DMS editor, but alright it that is going to be the easiest solution for now).
I am trying to insert a RevSlider (but open to other suggestions on tool, widget, plugin...) on the page that will display a lifestyle image below the "Header" and above a two column layout (Col 1 = custom menu/sub nav and Col 2 = WP Content/Loop) that will be unique to the page/product.
For example, on the Rancher page I want a photo of a ranch and on the Beach page, it has to be a beach.
Today, everything I do puts the same image on all pages using this template. I am trying to find a solution that doesn't require a unique template for every page of the site.
It looks like I am inserting the RevSlider in as a Local Option, but perhaps I am still doing something wrong. I am attaching a screenshot.
