Basic Question: How to make diff text box content per page?

Hopefully simple question here. I'm using WooCommerce and am trying to give differing text box content to each product page. Currently, if I change the text in one, it propagates to all the others.

 

I googled around but didn't find anything on this.

 

Edit: Just to clarify, I'm not talking about the "WP Content Area" part. That part is easy to customize per page. I need to be able to use the DMS text box section for this.

 

Thanks!

If you are using the same template, then any changes you make, to text box content, sections etc will be global for that template. Not what you want to hear!

 

Two alternatives. Give each page an unique template, but use custom sections for content that you want on every page type, so that when you can one it will change all.

 

If there are no 'global' sections for that template, then you can open the template, unlock it, and then make any changes you want. Save the page as is. It will have "Template: None", but will look the same as your original template, bar the 'local' changes you have made


Chrome Developer tools - please use them. If you are not sure how, then it is easy to learn

Be inventive in your keyword search of the forum ie Navi > Navbar > menu > tabs > font > color. Your answer lies there somewhere!

Snap, that's not very elegant, is it? It seems we could benefit from some sort of tickerbox that switches sections between being global or local.

 

So if I'm understanding you correctly, I could make a separate template for each product, and thus have separate text boxes for each?

 

Of course, then when I make other changes to product pages that I want to be global, I'll have to make the same changes for every single product throughout the site.

 

What a shame. I thought DMS was designed to take care of this kind of thing.

If you do that (make seperate templates), then save custom sections (canvas' etc) and apply them to each template. Or have a set tamplate with you custom sections on it( that you need to change globally) and each time you need a 'new' product template, open you default, unlock, make chamges and save as new template.
Laborious!

What happened to the local/global options for sections? That would solve the problem right there!

      Hi 
      I have a map here http://www.iloveoffset.com/maps/
      I want to add several pointer locations to the map, but when I do they do not appear.
      On this map there are 2 pointer locations and as you can there is only one visible.
      Earlier today I added 7 and could only see 4 so there is something odd going on.
      My theme is up to date

      Hello,
      I've been having trouble unlocking the template section for past couple of weeks. When I try clicking nothing happens. 
      I've deleted my custom css and removed plugins. Im down to having only the following plugins:
      Akismet
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      WooCommerce
      It was working fine before i have no idea what's going on with it.

      My DMS 2 site http://www.heart-stone.com/ will not save any new custom css... I can still edit templates and publish those but any custom css that I enter never saves.
      All WP files, themes, and plugins are up to date. 
      Any thought about what might be causing this?

      Is there a way to edit the custom CSS via FTP? I know I can edit the custom code in the Chrome editor but is there a file path I can use to find and edit the CSS directly from our FTP?
      Thanks in advance for the help!
