DMS2 Templates for WooCommerce Product Pages

Recommended Posts



What needs to be done to allow for different templates to be used on product pages? I would like to allow for different customizations for each product (i.e., different RevSlider images, images in sidebar, etc.). I noticed on the PL community site (http://pagelinescommunity.com/templates-in-pagelines-dms/) it mentions that templates only work on pages. Not on blog posts, archive pages, category pages or taxonomy pages. Unfortunately, this isn't great for anyone trying to design ecommerce sites. In DMS1 you actually were (still can) able to make adjustments to product pages (and all the post pages) by adjusting the "local" area. Now in DMS2 this can't be done ("unlocking" a template doesn't work and neither adding to a product page without even using a template). Right now, whatever customization you add (or delete) to one product, it adds the exact same to all of them. Really would love to have this work again. Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi there, product page will all use the same template unfortunately, they are treated the same as posts. The options for local/type/global have been changed in DMS to be related to the template, as you mentioned unlocking the template etc. Unfortunately that system will only work with DMS created templates, not templates provided from a plugin or else where.


I will let the core team, as the way templates were rewritten completely in DMS to prevent the issues users experienced in DMS I'm not sure if that option is something they'll be able to add back anytime soon, but we'll see what they say.

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.

      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

      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:
      Contact Form 7
      DMS Professional Tools
      Pagelines Updater
      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!
