There is nowhere in Pagelines Dokumentation, or in the forum the description a description for:

  • "Set a template site-wide" 

 

Can someone:

  • describe to me the exakt impact of this?
  • will this overwrite other templates?
  • etc.

Hi there, do you mean the option to set as the global default? There isn't an option to set a template site wide in the templates panel.


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.

yes, I mean Global Default :) (Even though I had the impression that I copied the wording from the PL documentation)

Ok the global template will be the template thats automatically used for creating new pages and posts. So any page new or existing which doesn't have a custom template assigned will be using the global default.

 

For example if you never made a custom template, then all pages will be using the default.

 

So if you edit this and save, then any existing pages will be updated if they are using the global template when you save and refresh the page. Pages using custom templates you've made won't be affected.

      I haven't figured out how to get the "Sync Loaded Item" option in templates menu of Platform 5 to stay checked. It doesn't give me an option to save settings when I select it, and when I select it then click off the editor, it unselects. Also if I select it before loading a template, it doesn't stay checked there either.  Whats going on?

      Hi,
      I created a Pagelines template for a "Post type" post. Whenever creating a new post page it firstly display that template post and I have to manually change it in the scope from "All of type posts " to "Current page". 
      Is there a way to fix that?

      I'm building a website in a dev environment at http://162.144.182.17/~uescocra.
      I want to import a bunch of products, and then have the products have a different template than the default template. 
      I also want to change the default template for blog posts.
      Before I go making changes, can I do this where the post type of "products" has its own global template, and the same with blog posts?
      For instance, in a product I might want to have a widget for categories, similar products, etc., and in the blog I may want list of the latest posts, blog categories, link to an email sign-up landing page, etc.
      Thanks.

      Is there a shortcode or a way to automatically pull the site name into the footer or elsewhere?

      An old client of mine has come across an issue with their website. 
      The site is fine on the front end but when you log into the DMS editor the 'About' page template isnt available instead the template for the 'Print Services' page appears
      Here is the live About page http://www.digicom.ie/about/. And see attached file for what i see in the back end.
      In the page settings i can see that the wrong page template is active but I'm not sure how this is the case if the live page is correct. The client assures me they didnt activate the template. 
      Any help at all?
