Discussion on Templatera - Template Manager for Visual Composer

Can I use Templatera to force a custom post type to always use a certain layout, without having to be chosen or set up by the person creating the post? Thank you.

Hi, currently there is no such feature, but I will add this one to our Backlog as this sounds interesting. Thanks for your input.

Great, thanks. Any idea how long it will take to implement?

Hi, can not promise anything at this stage, as this is in Backlog and has not been discussed with all of the team.

Hi,

since the latest update of templatera we can’t see the preview of the content any longer, when we add a templatera block at a page. I Only see a greybox without content.

What can I do to change this.

Is it possible to pass variables to a templatera template? (I’m using it to append related projects to a page)

Hi, currently there is no such option to interact with Template in such way.

Sorry for asking an ignorant question:

But can I use this to e.g. overrule my current header and footer, when trying to design my own template?

+ I am currently using the popular theme SALIENT with more than 25.000 sales. But basically I only use the VC functionality. And I could in general design my own design.

However, I do like functionality such as “Portfolio”. What should I do? I love the Salient-theme, but I want the full use of VC!

Cheers

PS, it annoys me that when I create a single page I want to create a new one based on that. Is that exactly what this does, and can I implement this in current theme?

With templatera you can design layout “A” and then insert it into any page by 2 options: 1) layout will be cloned and it will start to live its own life. 2) it is placed to the page but “greyed” out (can’t be edited directly), but if you will change original “A” template, all pages that hold it, will be updated with new content.

Hi again

Ok, ended up buying the plug-in. But the Visual Composer management is gone when opening the VC template-module. Its all only in code. Is that because the VC coming with my theme is outdated?

Cheers

Hi Peter, it’s hard to tell for sure. Theme authors may change every aspect of our Visual Composer, or even decide to start their “own” builder. It might be based on Visual Composer but can differ dramatically.

I also wanted to know if a custom post type could have a certain template added to to it by default as well but see that is is added to the backlog. Just wanted to plus 1 it

Is there maybe a bit of php code we can put in our Functions.php file.
