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 Is that because the VC coming with my theme is outdated?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.

Hi, you can add Templatera template to custom post type, but it can not be applied automatically. Nevertheless it is a good idea and we will think of it. Thanks.

Hi

Please excuse my ignorance, but can you explain further how this works?

Does it mean I can create a template in VC, save this template, and then load any of my saved templates into a post or a page?

Many Thanks

Hi, you can actually play around with VC at our demo at vc.wpbakery.com and see if there is everyhing you need to build you layouts. Because for building templates you use Visual Composer.

Also if there is something missing you can check vc.wpbakery.com/addons/ if there are things you need.

Hi

Thanks for the response, I already have VC installed. I just wanted to make certain, that with your add-on, I can create any template I want and the user can select this template when creating a new post or new page.

Thanks

Hi, yes, you can create any template and another user when adding a new page or post can then add this template to his/her page.

Hi. Another suggestion, which is the reason I never got on to using the plugin:

A: It should be possible to group dif. kinds of templates. Fx “Blocks” and “pages”.

B: It should be possible to create only “frames” like for pages, and also blocks complete with content and text, which is being used throughout the site.

Above is a must! :)

Cheers

“hello, you must log in to …”

why do the most developers deliver half solutions ?

Hi, the purpose of Templatera is different from what you are looking for as it was developed for different usage. Not allowing to include PHP is a logical restriction from perspective of security.

I also need ability to assign a default custom template to any custom post type. +1 for it. It would really be a differentiating offering. If you see, this can be achieved by doing by placing any code, pls suggest. I was just thinking, if saved templates are stored in form of .php files? Then we can rename those .php files to custom post type template.

Hi, we do not store templates in php files. Got your point about assigning – will think of it and talk over in a team meeting what we can do about that.

Thanks. Hope some solution will come out :)

New updates? Great, but what’s the new feature you added?!

wpbakery

We updated templatera to be compatible with upcoming Visual Composer 4.4 version.

Is SSL fixed yet?

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, yes, we pushed update so please make sure to update.

just installed the new version of templatera from today and all I gate is the may templates and default templates options but with no templates to choose from.

Will this problem occur if i install the new version of VC also?

Startdust
Startdust Author Team

Hi, you do not see templates in My Templates and Default Template list? Or you see them but can not choose. Latest update for Templatera was made to make it compatible with VC 4.4.
