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?
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://126.96.36.199/~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.
Is there a shortcode or a way to automatically pull the site name into the footer or elsewhere?
I don't understand the templates. When I use the templates-plugin, I can create new templates and load them but it doesn't seem like the edits affect different pages with the same template unless I load it again.
This in the PL5 front end.
In the backend we have templates like
These work better and I can edit them in PL5 by choosing the current template as a scope.
So basically I don't understand this. Why cant the templates in the WP backend and in the PL5 front end be the same? How do they work? Why are they so different than in DMS2?
And how can I create more templates like Framework A and rename them?
