Applying Templates

Recommended Posts

topjaba

Our site employs an IDX Plugin (MLS/Real Estate search plugin).

 

When one clicks on a property link, the result is a dynamically created post bearing all property details.

 

Before we transitioned to DMS, we were able to select the template type for these dynamic posts from within our plugin settings.  Now, the only option we have is DEFAULT and apparently, it's not the same DEFAULT as the one bearing the same name in DMS.   

 

Additionally, we have about 120 pages/posts to which we would like to apply the same template however, we cannot find a way to do this without updating each post/page one by one.  The issue is similar to the one noted above - there is an option for DEFAULT and only DEFAULT but it's not the same as the DMS default.  It's only when we enter the page settings directly that we're able to apply a DMS template. 

 

I have read other posts in the forum on this topic.  Accordingly, I have updated parent pages and category pages in hopes that it would apply to the same categories/parents.  No luck.

 

Seems like a good feature would be a global updater plugin that allows for bulk updating of page/post templates.

 

Thanks for reading.

Hi,

 

What version of DMS are you using, can you provide a link to the site in question please.

I have no experience using this plugin and I have just installed it and it is asking for an activation key, it also doesn't appear you actually create the content inside of WordPress (unless I have misunderstood).

Also, if the plugin uses standard WordPress templates, then that is the reason as to why you can not select a template, as DMS templates are dynamically created via DMS and not actual WordPress templates files.

 

If my basic understanding of this plugin is correct, then you will need to contact the developer of this plugin and ask them for assistance.

Danny,

 

Given your feedback, I think PageLines has a responsibility to make a very clear disclaimer to their US clients at checkout that the theme is simply not suitable for any real estate website that employs an IDX plugin - this is virtually every real estate website in the United States.

      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!
