DMS 2 Textbox changing in one template after changing content in another template


Question

Posted · Report post

Hi,

 

I have a textbox in one template that updates when I update the textbox in another template.

 

See here:

The text "Test Group 50" keeps changing, whether I edit it in the "group2" or "groups page" template.

 

The only thing I can think of is the content for this page is generated by a plugin called sabai: http://codecanyon.net/item/sabaidirectory-for-wordpress/full_screen_preview/4505485

 

Here's a shot of the backend: http://massmosaic.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Screen-Shot-2014-05-14-at-9.07.04-AM.png

 

However I added this textbox after publishing the page and it's clearly linked to a template. 

 
I'm using WP 3.9 and DMS 2.0.4. 
 
Thank you

If you have a template that you're using on multiple pages, but want the sections to be configured differently then you will want to unlink the template. Otherwise, whatever changes you make on one will appear on all others.

 

Also thanks for informing us the issue has been resolved.

Hello - I appreciate your explanation above and want to understand just a bit more.  Here is a scenario:

 

I choose a custom page template, NeighborhoodPageTemplate, for a certain page, say Lynwood Center, then unlock so I can enter content specific to only the Lynwood Center neighbordhood.

After I've entered the content I discover I need to add a text box to the bottom of EVERY neighborhood page, so I add this text box to my NeighborhoodPageTemplate.  Is there any way to update the pages I've already unlocked from the template without losing all the custom content on each page?

 

My suspicion is No, and that I need to make sure I finalize my template before creating any pages....  

 

Thanks for the help!

Unfortunately, no as you have unlinked the templates already. When you unlink them they're no longer connected.
