Textbox changing in one template after changing content in another template

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

I have a textbox in one template that updates when I update the textbox in another template.

 

See here:

The text "Test Group 50" keeps changing, whether I edit it in the "group2" or "groups page" template.

 

The only thing I can think of is the content for this page is generated by a plugin called sabai: http://codecanyon.net/item/sabaidirectory-for-wordpress/full_screen_preview/4505485

 

Here's a shot of the backend: http://massmosaic.com/wp-content/uploads/2014/05/Screen-Shot-2014-05-14-at-9.07.04-AM.png

 

However I added this textbox after publishing the page and it's clearly linked to a template. 

 
I'm using WP 3.9 and DMS 2.0.4. 
 
Thank you

If you have a template that you're using on multiple pages, but want the sections to be configured differently then you will want to unlink the template. Otherwise, whatever changes you make on one will appear on all others.

 

Also thanks for informing us the issue has been resolved.

Hello - I appreciate your explanation above and want to understand just a bit more.  Here is a scenario:

 

I choose a custom page template, NeighborhoodPageTemplate, for a certain page, say Lynwood Center, then unlock so I can enter content specific to only the Lynwood Center neighbordhood.

After I've entered the content I discover I need to add a text box to the bottom of EVERY neighborhood page, so I add this text box to my NeighborhoodPageTemplate.  Is there any way to update the pages I've already unlocked from the template without losing all the custom content on each page?

 

My suspicion is No, and that I need to make sure I finalize my template before creating any pages....  

 

Thanks for the help!

Unfortunately, no as you have unlinked the templates already. When you unlink them they're no longer connected.

      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?
