Hello WPbakery,

Just bought Templatera. Using it with Qode’s Bridge theme (5.4). I exported my home page as a template. I downloaded this XML. Then cleaned out my install and started clean on my actual server where the site is to reside. But upon trying to use this template as my new home page, I just get a spinning wheel and then nothing. Nothing is appended. This same result is achieved by choosing one of the default templates. Nothing is appended. I do know that some of the image assets chosen when I built the original template do not yet exist on the new WP install. Any ideas?

Many thanks in advance.

some follow up : this seems to work via VC 4.3.3 in the Bridge theme, but not via VC 4.3.4. As mentioned, not even the default templates append.

I just bought templatera and added it to a fresh install of wordpress with the latest version of visual composer. No other plugins installed and I am not seeing the template element tag. Not sure what I did wrong, but the support site is down and I am not sure what else to do. Please let me know if there is something I missed.

Thanks

Is there any particular reason my Visual Composer designs are not transferring to another site? I built out an entire test site with VC, and want to copy that exact design to the current site.

Even copy/paste in Classic mode does not carry over the layout properly. There are breaks in the tables, odd spacing, etc.

Any advice would be much appreciated.

Hi, does each of your site has similar WP theme? Because different themes has some different additional styling which can affect layout. Also – does both of your sites has same versions of Visual Composer and Templatera?

So i was about to submit a support ticket for this then I found the answer quite easily actually. I wanted to be able to use the slug instead of the id to call the templatera blocks in my shortcode. For example, i want to add a block to a custom post type archive page and didn’t want to have to edit the php so I use the do_shortcode: <?php echo do_shortcode('[templatera id="169"]'); ?>

But i’m working on a big site where i’m going to have quite a few of these so I wanted an easier way to precode them and then build the templatera blocks without having to go back and update the id’s once they’re made so I’m thinking: SLUG (juice).

in the vc_template_manager.php line 415, replace that function with the following:

/** * Frozen row shortcode hook. * @param $atts * @param string $content * @return string */ public function outputShortcode($atts, $content = '') { $id = $el_class = $output = ''; extract(shortcode_atts(array( 'el_class' => '', 'slug' => '', 'id' => '' ), $atts)); if ( $slug ) { $block = get_page_by_path( $slug, OBJECT, 'templatera' ); if ( $block ) { $id = $block->ID; } } if (empty($id)) return $output; $post = get_post($id); if ($post) { $output .= '<div class="templatera_shortcode' . ($el_class ? ' ' . $el_class : '') . '">'; if($post->post_type===self::$post_type) $output .= apply_filters('the_content', $post->post_content); $output .= '</div>'; } wp_enqueue_style('templatera_inline', $this->assetUrl('css/front_style.css'), false, '2.1'); return $output; }

It basically just looks up the id using the slug and keeps plugging away. :D

I just bought templatara after you referred it to me from Visual Composer. I need to share an common Accordion content block across multiple pages. This looks like it should work but the Accordion in Templatara does not work. The Accordion shows all content expanded out and no features for it to expand or collapse the “accordion features”. It does not even show the + or – icons. It appears the scripting is being pulled out of it on rendering.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Scratch that, I had a template issue stopping the JQuery. Templatera worked out great. Great plug-in.

Hi, I recently purchased VC Templates to add to VC Composer that came with my Bridge theme. VC Template is installed and able to add & save new templates however does not seem to load or past on to any new page or posts that I’m trying to create. Even the Predefined Layouts does not past or loads on to the page. We’re able to add element, text blocks, etc. but unable to load saved Templates or Predefined Layouts. Please help.

I’m hoping that author will soon reply since it’s been 6 days already. I purchased the Templatera 1.0.5 and applying to Bridge Theme version 5.7 that came with WPBakery Visual Composer 4.3.4. I can save the template however when we try to apply it to page or post wheel just spins and does not apply. Also, Predefined Layouts from Visual Composer does not apply to page or post.

Hi there, I want to know if I can use this plugin to create a page template for a custom post type and will I be able to call the custom fields from it.

Thansk in advance!

Hi, you can create page template which can later be added as content to page, post or custom post types, the custom fields are managed for exact post type, but when creating template Templatera does not know yet where you will add it, so within Templatera you can not work with custom fields.

Where can I export & import VC templates? Thanks. I did find I can export on Tools, but is there possible to export individual template?

Thanks

Hi, currently you can export all templates at once, but we are aware of demand and are thinking on how to implement this feature.

Hello friend, I just purhcased Visual Composer and wonder, why didn’t I know about this one before? :)

Well, I run a classifieds kind of website and would like to build a template for the profile page. This is what Templera does right?

Except that, I want to have a template of the layout only (not content), as classifieds, each profile page needs to have different info.

It seems that what Templera does is to make all pages the same and if content is changed, all contents get changed, right?

So, is it possible to accomplish what I need with Templera? Do you have a link with the specs or demo?

Thank you!

Hi, yes, you can create whatever layout you want – with or without content and than apply it to several pages. Once you change the template all pages will change as well.

It is a fault which the builder of Template Manager does not have the option to read a template that was saved from the creation of a page? I think it’s an absurd failure. I’m wrong?

Hi, did not got your point, could you explain in more details what do you mean by ‘from the creation of page’?

Assume that, I have my beautiful website created with VC. On every page that I have created, I turn to the function that VC now has to save them as templates. Until quite normal here. Now I find this super Addons called “Template Manager”. By accessing the administration of the addon, that is to create a template, I can not call any layout that already had saved before. Ohh! I have everything done but the addon can not get up my designs / template

Hi, when you are making your first activation of Templatera it takes all templates created before without Templatera and adds it to the repository automatically. The second activation does not import those templates any more or those which were created in between first activation and second activation.

Hi,

I have a problem with this plugin. Here http://goo.gl/1aGiHu

I have 1/4 1/2 1/4 row on home page and template(with 4 column images) is implemented in 1/2.

The problem is that I set 166pxX102px dimensions for this images http://www.picz.ge/img/s2/1411/9/6/66c618a96695.jpg but they looks smaller, something about 143pxX87px.

They looks good on another test site http://goo.gl/XDMvNv, where I put it directly in page, without Templatera template.

But what to do if I need 4 columns with 166×102 images using templatera template?

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, could not open the other site, but the main issue is that width of your content area is defined by your theme, so columns separate it into 1/4, 1/2 and 1/4 as you set. At the end 1/2 is smaller than your defined image so it just does not fit into the size you want as it is too big.

Hi,

I purchased Templatera and I really like it, but…

I save lets say a footer template I made with VC, It consists of 3 collumns of an Info table and above that a seperator. I insert that saved template on a new page

If I look at the margins on the left and right side, then they are different, read smaller, then the rest of de page.

In other words, the saved template is not in line with the rest of the pages.

Anny suggestions?

thx

Does this plugin work with custom post types?

Startdust

Hi, yes, when you create template you can insert it into page, post and also custom post type if Visual Composer is activated for this custom post type.

Absolutely love Visual Composer, as it came packaged with my purchase of Theme X by theme.co. I wasn’t able to use that license to create a WPbakery account, so I’m asking my question here.

Pre-Sale Question: Looking for a solution that will:

a) Allow me to assign a default vc template (that I create) to a custom post type.

b) Any changes to that template would be reflected across all posts of that type.

For example, say I have a “movie” custom post type. I have the perfect vc template structure that I want every movie post to follow. I create a new movie, and I don’t have to choose a template for it, because it’s already known that movie posts use a certain template.

Further, say I have 1000 movie posts and I want to switch the order of 2 vc elements. I want to be able to switch those elements in 1 place and have it reflected across all 1000 movie posts.

Please tell me that solution is Templatera?!

Thanks!

Hi, with Templatera it is that way, that you create a template page/post and insert it into the page. Once you change the template all pages or posts will change according to template.
