Discussion on Templatera - Template Manager for Visual Composer

198 comments found

HI again

I dont know if I am just retarded… but FINALLY I found out that I had to go under “Add Element” and IN THERE find the templatera. There was no icon displayed neither, so hard to find.

Also, There is a template button on top of the page, but when clicking that, no templates are displayed to choose from.

My question is:

I believed with TEMPLATERA that I could create the frames/ template, but still be able to edit the content inside these boxes? However, When I create a template, it is all 100% fixed. E.I. I will get a tonnes of duplicates instead of just empty templates which I can then complete and fill out?

Am I using Templatera completely wrong?

Cheers

Peter

Hi again. I am sorry, but I was soooo disappointed when I finally got to use the plugin (I was waiting for Theme Nectar to upgrade VC so I could install).

What I expected from a template manager would be nothing less from what I expect from any other template I find here on Envato. AKA – I have no clue why on earth you have not developed a plug-in (like this one), to be able to build blocks which I can re-use.

For ALL of my custom build pages, I need to e.g. change “top-padding” for each and every single page, if I want to change this. I actually expected Templatera to be able to manage these blocks.

Without being able to edit the text-content/ image content within these blocks, I actually cannot see what I can use this plug-in for?

I dont know if it is only me who is a wacko who cannot see the point.

You dont have any plans on upgrading or develop a template-manager in the sense of an actual template-manager??

I have made my own custom pages for each top-category level page for example. You would have saved me so much time, if I could have reused like 90% of the template, and only had to change maybe a few blocks on each page…

If would have been so cool, if I inside the template-manager could determine WHAT cells/ object that were allowed to be changed. E.g. text-input which will (ofcourse) be different from page to page – in most cases.

PS, if you watch this front-page you will find ONE of my issues, which I had hoped your plugin could help me with.

I am using this plugin (the box) as menu for all my top-level menu-pages.

But I have to change the settings for EACH and every page. + The chance I will screw up and miss some details are like really big.

I had honestly expected that I could save a row as a column (or a row) as template! And then add the text on the different pages.

I should be able to either “lock” individual boxes that MUST NOT be overwritten (like e.g. the text-input) OR I could simply just leave that field in the template-manager, and I would not experience any problems at all.

THAT is what I needed. THAT is what I believed I would get, and I also believe that many thousand users have the same need as me…

Hello, it seems that you did not investigated description of the add-on and its capabilities. We haven’t received such complains like yours before – Templatera does solve certain problems users mentioned as it should, but yes – it is different from what you are looking for.

Is there a way for Templatera users to quickly create a template of an existing page. I am using the salient 5.5 visual composer. The purpose would be to duplicate the existing page.

Aloha!

Hi, you can save page as Template to use it afterwards. But if you are referring to page as a whole site – Templatera does not offer such option – here I would recommend looking into Migration plugin or something like this.

Hi Just purchased this plugin – another great one! I’m having trouble importing the xml file the plugin created during export. I can’t see where I import the xml file. I can only see the standard Wordpress >tools>import buttons but there is no facility to import the Templatera template file. Can you guide me on how to do this please? Also, It won’t override my existing templates when I import will it? Thanks

Hi, at the same place where you Exported Templates there is Import option. Please check Settings/Visual Composer/Templatera

I hate those videos with music instead of person’s voice explaining what’s done! How the hack should I know when you show a gergulat VS feature and when it is a special Templatera feature? It runs fast which is good if it was followed by explanation.

Hi Guys,

This plugin is awesome and I am using it on multiple websites. I have a problem however. The styles for vc’s row design options are not generating and being placed in the header. For example,

In templatera I create a new template. I add some rows and click on the row design options I specify a background image or background color I save the template and include it within a page The row does not display any of the options I selected

I checked the source to see if the custom css rules came through from vc and they haven’t. The only ones which display are from the page itself and not from any of the templatera templates. This may have something to do with the embedding process? Anyways I tried this on a vanilla wordpress install with just vc and Templatera installed. Same problem on the default wordpress template.

Hi, could you please open support ticket at support.wpbakery.com and share your site credentials so our support team can investigate your issue and help you out.

Am I right in thinking that the templates do not control background colours, padding or margins so they all need to be done on each page manually?

Hi, this should not be so. There are some specific things related to WYSIWYG editor settings to be saved, but we are looking into this. As for Design Options it should work with no problems. If not, please do open support ticket at support.wpbakery.com so we can help you out.

Have a problem to find what template I use as on page have more then 10 Templera blocks. Need to open each one to find out what’s the name of each. Do you plan to add a feature to see template name on page without opening it?

Hi, this is a good idea and I will surely add this to our Backlog as a Feature Request for consideration. Thanks.

Is it possible to apply templates for custom post types? I have about 8 different post types that will display different layouts. I am wondering if I can create a default template for each one and have it apply to all posts from that post type instead of creating and registering post templates the normal way.

Hi, Templatera is allowed to be added to custom post types. As for automatic – there is no such option, but we are looking into this as this sounds like an interesting idea.

Hello my theme, Regency by Sara_P uses VC but demo content is .gz file format can this format be imported?

Pls Advise.

Hi, Templatera does not accept .gz files. It accepts xml files, but please look into structure – simply export data in xml and see how it is structured.

Hi Pre-Sales. Can I create a template that automatically inserts a background image based on the featured image (or other image type). I have a php template that does this but the functionality is limited. I would love to use the parallax functionality and build this template with VC. Does this make sense? Thanks in advance!! -a

Hi, there is no such option in Templatera so you will have to look for custom solution.

H there,

Just purchased but can’t find how to import/export templates to another site, no documentation to explain it either?

Hi, please go into Visual Composer/Templatera and you will see Import/Export option there.

Hi, is Templatera still relevant these days? or has Visual Composer’s functions replaced most of the functionality? I bought Templatera when it first came out…does the current version fully support the latest VC?

What’s the difference on Templatera and the normal design templates in VC?

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, Templatera is supported by latest Visual Composer version. The idea of Templatera is to allow managing template from template repository to change all places where it is presented instantly.

Question, with your new update, what is the best way to update everything without loosing the templates we have added already.

Hi, update does not affect templates so there are no problems updating at all.

How do I save existing templates in Templatera, that I created in VC?

Startdust

Hi, once you activate Templatera all templates of VC will be moved/converted to Templatera templates.

Awesomeness!

In the last VC update you moved the Grid Elements as a sub menu page of the Visual Composer, any chance you’ll do the same for Templatera?

If not I know I can do so myself via hooks.

Thanks!

With one of the latest updates to this, or Visual Composer, the VC Templates menu item no longer displays in the dashboard. Template items can still be edited in the Visual Composer menu, but because of that my editors can’t edit templates anymore.

Is there a fix for this? Thanks.

Hi

Working on local host no option to share credentials. - Created templates with media grid - Updates on various pages, WooCommerce products - Going to pages and WooCommerce products it works only on preview because after saving them, templates partly not showing (media grid template not showing). Can you help?

I’m wondering about using this add-on to VC and played with a friend’s version to assess its abilities for my purposes. What I found was that when I create a row with a background color in templatara and then place it on a page there is a gap between the templatera row edge and the container. If for example my templatera row is yellow and it sits on a green page then you will see the row bounded by green. If I create a row natively then I can make sure it extends to the edge of the container and all would look yellow. Wondering if this is a typical problem? I can get around it by placing a row of the same color on the page and then placing the templatera row inside of this, but it adds a step that I’d rather not have to do. Am I missing something?
