How to access 'local' options for sections?

Recommended Posts

I'm using WooCommerce and have a handful of product pages which I need to have text boxes in that change per product. I need to be able to use the DMS text box section for it.

 

Normally I would assume that I could just choose the old "local" options for the text box, but those are no longer present in DMS 2 it seems. Did they move? What am I missing?

Hi there, they type and local settings that were in DMS V1 are no longer in DMS 2.

 

You can use the unlock template feature to make local changes on pages so they don't effect the rest of the pages on that template.

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.

hello,

I need the same template on different pages have different pictures, graphics, etc. The ideal solution was to date local option, which unfortunately does not will. I do not want to create templates for example, 100 pages in which you just need to have other images. So how do we deal with this problem?

There is an option to block, unblock template, but how can you turn it on / off, how does it work?

and if your post code in dms only do I see?

Kedark"] If you have sections that need to be global for that template you are using, then save that as a custom section. In that way, any changes you make to that custom section will replicate wherever that custom section is in place on your website. otherwise follow @[member="James B advice. The template look will remain, it just will no longer have a "template" associated with it... so in effect you are saving a page and NOT a template. If that makes sense?

Hi, thanks for your reply,

I need to apply a template, place the pieces on the site, eg revslider, mediabox etc. but on each side of the template to insert other images. So far (in framework and DMS 1.x) the case was simple and referred to the option - local. The DMS 2 is an unlock templates, I tried several ways, and if it is unlock or not, changing the photo - it varies throughout the template ...

Do Not know if this is understandable, but I would achieve what the earlier systems gave opion-local and has been replaced by something here so I can not really cope. (there is also no point creating templates, because they would then hundreds) ...

Kedark

Within each canvas area, I presume you are saying you have a mixture of global and local?

Kedark Please excuse the look of what I knocked up for you, but hope you appreciate I have no idea what your site looks like, but this might show you how you can edit locally and globally...

This works great on the sides .... just a pity it does not work on ads ... often gave different graphics eg mediabox in entries ... or is it somehow ...?

I tested it with revslider and mediabox .. untouchable ... and this part of wordpress does not work ... (entry) although it should .. I guess ...

I had a template entry - in which interceded photo revslider, mediabox and text, each entry had to be different - with the result but that it can not be ...

In any case, thank you very much for your help .. at least I know what can and what can not be .. not unless someone knows a way ...

Why wont it work for ads? Surely you can add the html to the text option in the widgets and it will add? I just tested by adding some paypal.

 

Revslider is a full width section so you can custom save that section if it is to be applied in various places (you do know how to do that?). Yet if you are changing it on every page, it isnt a problem if you follow the Use template > Unlock > edit revslider > publish.

 

Or am I not understanding you?

Thanks for the video. Following that seems to work. I still fear this is going to bite me in the end if I ever want to go back and change a series of pages (at once) that were once locked to a template.

 

The short question is, when you unlock a page from a template are you cutting all ties to that template for good? Read on if you like but this is the question I am ultimately asking.

 

Am I understanding this correctly? Once you unlock a page from a template, that page is no longer linked to the template at all? So if you ever wanted to go back and rearrangeadd, or remove elements on a series of pages that were once linked to a template, you cannot do it by modifying one of the now-unlocked pages and then selecting "Update template with Current Configuration". It seems as though that would only update the template since pages that were once based on that template are no longer associated with it. Unless I'm missing something (which won't be the first time), doesn't that render the entire template process as linear and destructive?  If this is not a true statement then I believe the confusion is with the terminology being used. When I see the words "lock / unlock" with regards to templates, I am thinking "associate / disassociate" or "link / unlink" respectively.

ssgro66 That is my understanding, too. It would be possible to change the "template" and then visit the other template clone pages (no longer associated) and load the new template > unlock > edit > publish. The only problem with that, is having to copy content etc elsewhere as you would lose the original "unique" content, when loading the "new" template

Hey guys, has anyone figured out how to add/adjust different sections to post/product pages without having it become global? Unlocking templates on a post/product page does not work.

Brennum. It does work (or should). Are any of those sections (or canvases ) saved as custom? When you unlock a page all the features etc should now have the "linked to 'xyz' template" removed. Check your canvases do not have a padlock in the editing nav bar. I presume you are not going to Page Setup > Template name > Update this template with current configuration?

GetMeWebDesign. Thanks for your response. So everything of course works fine on pages, but post pages or product pages (woocommerce) it does not work. I actually don't want to use a template on a post/product page as I would like to add different sections for various post pages. Whenever I try adding a section it makes it global. There's no padlock at the top on these post pages either and it's still not working.

Brennum This may not be a solution, but if you never specify a template (as far as I know) it will use a global default. Hence any sections will be "global default". Not au fait with woo commerce (if you are developing ecommerce, I would strongly recommend looking at Prestashop... best open source out there). My guess would be assign a template and then unlock for post/product pages. In that way the page with be saved but uniquely. If you want to have some semi-globallocal sections in there then save them as custom sections and add to requisite unlocked pages... if that makes sense?

GetMeWebDesign. Unfortunately assigning a new template for a post/product page and then unlocking it to add different sections locally to that specific post doesn't work. I'm pretty certain it is a hard coding difference between DMS1 vs DMS2. Not being able to truly customize post pages is a real step backwards with DMS2, and I actually love this version aside from this major issue. It just means you can't really take full advantage of the strength of individual page design. Hopefully this can be solved on the PL end.

      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

      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?
