Multiple Post Templates

Recommended Posts


Anyone know how I can add multiple post templates in the DMS?


We have a restaurant resource site in construction for a tourist town in the Midwest. We need restaurant listings to be posts so they can take advantage of search, tags, and category functions. For example, categories would be BBQ, American, Mexican, Fine Dining, etc. etc.


However, we also need the ability to post articles that provide recipes, interviews and plenty more. These need to utilize the same navigating features as the restaurant posts, but require a different visual layout.


I've ran across many "multiple post template" plugins, but haven't tried them... Is there a recommendation for one that is friendly with DMS?

I find it unreal that this isn't possible. If this isn't allowed, then any site DMS helps construct can only be so intelligent and functional. I need something more robust if that is the case, no? And, if not, you guys should really work on that so more enterprising ventures can be performed with your platform.


You can see the start of the project here...

Hi there,


There are postloop plugins which would allow you to pull posts into a static page yet still take advantage of the different layout/drag and drop options etc.


Checkout http://nickhaskins.co/products/anyloop/ which acts like an additional postloop allowing you to pull in specific posts/categories and set the layout using the section options.

Kindly search the forum and read the documentation before posting. It will help you resolve many issues.

For CSS help be sure to check out W3Schools first and be sure to download FireBug for FireFox for troubleshooting.

      Have researched this in the forum and find a couple ancient posts from 2011 and 2014 apparently for pre-DMS2?
      Am using latest Wordpress  4.8.4 running DMS Version: 2.2.4 theme
      When in the editor (Chrome), the page looks fine, but when logged out and viewing individual posts, they show up twice - one in the column I have setup and a second time at bottom of content page but above footer???
      Each page has 2 columns, left column is biggest and contains wploop/content and comments. wpcontent loop is displaying a second time below both columns but ONLY when not in editor. While in editor, second wp content block does not appear???
      https://cassclayton.com/el-chapultapec/  is a post. You can get to it from NEWS | News/Blog dropdown menu, then choosing a post.
      The 2011, 2014 posts talk about going into Settings and adjusting the excerpts vs full settings, but can't find anywhere to do this in DMS???
      Not sure if this is a new issue or old one i just now noticed.

      Best regards,

        First of all, sorry for my bad English.  I am developing an ecommeece with wp, woocommerce, PL5 and quickshop, and I need to do some changes in the simple product grid. I want to change the classes of some divs, but I can't find the templates. 
      Also, I change the grid of the category products pages, but I didn't make it correctly.
      This is the cat archive's: http://globosdemar.com/wp/categoria-producto/camisetas-para-ninos-y-ninas/
      Can you help me?

      I am trying to remove the sidebar areas from my child theme (pagelines.com) from the post pages on a site:
      The content is all the way to the left and very small, and the two sidebar areas are taking up a lot of space.
      What I'm after is content to the left, taking up most of the space, and then a small sidebar width on the right for widgets.
      I've tried selecting 'read width content' and 'full width content' in the edit screen for the WP content section, but it doesn't change.  If I try to move the sidebars (1 or 2) to the left, it doesn't change.
      If I select the pagelines framework theme (not child), the two sidebars go away when not selecting them in the edit screen..
      Can someone please tell me what I'm doing wrong?
      Thanks in advance.

      Could someone explain exactly how the new template sync works or what it is suppose to do?

      I have to say that I like the Layout and the Template based sections. Some of them are really impressive.
      One of the things that I would like to request though is the possibility of being able to dynamically rearrange the layout.
      An example of what I am talking about is take the Agency Section. It's current layout starts with the
      Splash Module then the Portfolio Module then the Service Module and so on and so forth.
      What would be great is if we were able to move these modules around. I.e have the Service Module first
      then maybe the Splash, and then the portfolio.
