1.) I'm working with the Page Title Section and it looks like it might do what I want it to do, but if so I can't figure out which settings to use.
2.) I have the Page Title section set up on the 'default page template', which i'm using for most pages on this site, as they all have the same layout.
3.) I need every page to have a different title (obviously, hence why I'm using the section) but I want them to be different from what the page title is in the actual WP page doc. I see that there is there is an override in the DMS editor for this section, however when I change it, it changes all pages globally. Is there a way to do this so every page can have it's own separate overridable title?
4.) Currently it appears how I want it to because I have done a workaround by naming the WP pages (from within the WP dash) what I need them to say. The beauty of this workaround was that the client would not have to open the DMS editor to make changes to these titles and could edit them right from the WP dash, however I have discovered that it will mess with the site search function as well as not being ideas for SEO.
5.) I'm open to using a different section to achieve this effect so If you have another solve or a different section that might work better, please let me know.
Thanks in advance!
I have 2 pages that require a custom page template. Is it possible to use custom php templates in DMS? I created the files added them to the DMS directory (Like I would with a standard theme) But I am not able to select it from the edit page screen.
I know DMS uses a diffrent template system but I was hoping someone knows a work around because I really want to use DMS on this site (Almost finished hate to restart now). Maybe I could turn it into a section? or a hook? (That goes over my head but willing to learn)
Thanks For the help

However, each time I 'Update Template With Current Configuration' the system overwrites all 3 templates... but only those templates. All other templates remain the same.
Also, I should add that I can see that each of the 3 pages is maintaining it's association with its own template, as evidenced by the yellow template unlock element.
Has anyone else seen this?
Is this a result of the way I've named the templates?
Before DMS—in themes—I would normally create (single-POSTTYPE.php) files and WP would know to pull that template to display the information for that post type.
I've read through every thread on the forum about custom post types and I understand there are several ways to approach displaying the information of custom meta boxes. (via plugins, short-codes, or editing functions.php of a child theme)
I've downloaded the customize-plugin, and I figured out to edit the functions.php in there to add hooks.
If I understand correctly, hooks allow you to swap out information (filters), or add new information (actions).
For instance, using (filter) hooks I can replace (post_author) with (custom_meta_field_A). Or using (action) hooks I can add (custom_meta_field_B) after (post_title).
What I don't understand is how you can use hooks to build templates for certain post types. I don't want my hooks to apply to all single posts, only for certain post types. I am basically asking how do I create the DMS equivalent of (single-POSTTYPE.php) files.
How can I create a page that shows a custom loop of certain post types? using hooks?
Ok here here are the 4 things i want to do, that I am slightly confused about:
Put a background on the content area of the entire site (every page), while in full width more Have a background color (not image) for the site itself that is different from the content area Have the content area background also apply to the footer and look seamless have a separate backgrounf for the header that IS full width. I've been trying and just not getting it to work. Any suggestions?
