Template not applying correctly

Recommended Posts

williamweber

I don't know if I'm not doing something incorrectly or if things aren't working properly. I've seen a few posts about the template display in the WP admin bar but I don't care so much about that. This issue I'm having is that I update a page and save it to the template (either the default or to a new one that I've created) but the changes are not showing up on other pages that have the same template applied to them. I have to go to each page and click on the "load template" button again to get the changes to propagate.

 

It's very frustrating. Is this a bug or am I doing something incorrectly?

 

Steps I'm taking:

1. edit a page template section - in this case http://simplify.bi/blog

2. on the template tab of DMS I click on "actions" -> "update template with current configuration" - I've done this both for the default template and new one I created to test things out.

3. Save, refresh, publish, everything I can think of to completely apply what I've done.

4. I then go to other pages that have the default template applied: http://simplify.bi/tag/cats/ for example, but the new configuration is not applied. (note the doubling of my breadcrumbs section on that page).

 

Any help is appreciated.

Hi there,

 

That is correct at the moment, it has been reported as an issue - https://github.com/pagelines/DMS/issues/297 and the core team are aware on working on it. A fix for this is coming in the next release.


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.

Thanks for the information. I thought I was going nuts. Glad to see it's already on the radar. I'll just limp along and try not to forget to apply my template to one of the pages.

When are we going to get a fix on template issues. Templates are such a significant part of Wordpress I am totally amazed this stuff is still going on months after being reported by (paying) users?

The fix is in the next major release, DMS V2 which is launching next week. Originally this was how the template system was created, however due to the comments and reasons provided from clients on the bug report linked above, the Core team have worked to correct this for the new release.

        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 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.

      I am using Jigoshop on a website that also uses PL5 and am running into an issue where the store pages do not allow me to use the PL5 editor. Is anyone else having this problem or know if a solution? 
      When I open the Chrome console I see the following error:
      site.js?ver=b199df:5 Uncaught ReferenceError: PLData is not defined
          at Object.setMasterModel (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at Object.init (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at HTMLDocument.<anonymous> (site.js?ver=b199df:5)
          at i (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Object.fireWith [as resolveWith] (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at Function.ready (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
          at HTMLDocument.K (jquery.js?ver=1.12.4:2)
       
      The problem can be seen here: http://fingerlakesdistilling.com/shop/ where the sidebar, footer, and header do not show up. Any thoughts?
      Thanks so much!

      I've created a new post category "Success stories" with Custom Post type UI. (in order to have a different layout for a different post category - blog post one layout, success stories another layout).
      New category "success stories" are "detached" from all the other posts, so they have a different layout, but the problem is that all of the success stories are also having the same exact content.
      So whenever I edit content (e.g. change body text) on one of success story posts, it also changes the content (body text) for all other Success story category posts. 
       
      Question: Is there a way to retain this separate category with it's own layout, and have a different content for each individual post? I'm using Pagelins templates. 
       Thanks in advance.
