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'm building a website in a dev environment at http://220.127.116.11/~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?
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?
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?
