Hi, is it possibile to include a shortcode by name?

echo do_shortcode(‘[templatera id=”1008”]’);

Hello, Yes, you can do it. However some elements like grids, etc. may not function when added in this manner.

yes I found this solution to include shortcode by slug but as you said grid doesn’t work 8(

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) { $output .= ‘ ’; if($post->post_type===self::$post_type) $output .= apply_filters(‘the_content’, $post->post_content); $output .= ‘ ’; } 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.

Quick Question: 1. I insert a Template (with placeholder content, e.g. “lorem ipsum” Text) 2. Then I the “lorem ipsum” Text with something else 3. Then I go back to the Templatearea and make Changes to the original Template

What happens now? Is my edited Text on the page replaced with the placeholder content again?

Hello, I you add the template via templatera element, then the content will be replace with the new one. However if you add it via add template option, then there will be no change.

Apologies for a typo. It should be *When you add.

Hey,

first of all great plugin, but I want a bit more flexibility. I am not sure if it’s possible with Templatera.

After creating a template, i.e. a two column row with textfields, I want to have the ability to alter the text, but have everything else being “managed” from the template itself.

As far as I know I only have two options; adding Templatera to a page via an element with no possibility to alter it on the page itself OR adding the template to the page how you normally would and losing the control to “manage” it globally.

Is there a third way?

Thank you in advance for your answer.

Gr. Pim

Hello, I am afraid, we currently do not have such feature at present. But we might add it in future.

In a Templatera template, I insert a “single image” element and set it to use the “featured image”... When applying the template to various pages with a featured image, and then loading my site, the image does not display. Help?

Hello, This occurs because the templates work as a post type and when you use the featured image as the source it tries to use the featured image of the template which does not exist.

Hi. Ive made a form in a template with contactform7. In the message body of the form, i have _post_name[_post_url] to find out which page the users are submitting the form, but in the mail from the form i only get info about the template, and not the info about the page the form/template is being sent from…

Do you know what to do?

Hello, the issue is because the template is a post type and hence when added onto the page, it returns the template related values. A work-around this will be to add the form which pulls the values from the post without using the template.

Consultation before purchase:It is described that the template can be downloaded for free. Is the template a substitute for the theme? Should I purchase theme separately?

Hello, The templates are pre-built layouts built using the visual composer elements. Yes, a theme is required. You can use a free theme or a purchased one. We also have a starter theme which can be downloaded here: https://blog.visualcomposer.io/visual-composer-starter-theme/

Hello, This is a presale question: I want templates where I will change only settings on VC elements but I will not change texts which are different on every pages. So If I have a template made with templatera, and I only change the color of custom headline element for example, will it change just the color of that particular VC element on any of my templates without touching the other elements or will it change also the text and other VC elements that I did not update through the templatera ?

And all my templates done with templatera would be editable on every pages ? thanks Yves

Hello, When you add a template via templatera element, it’s content is locked. So, any change that you make to the template is reflected onto the page where it is added. For eg: If you change the color of custom heading in the original template, it will be reflected on all the pages where the template is added. The template will be editable via visual composer -> templates.

I’m working with Templatera for a client. Maybe you could help me: their client has the user role “editor”. As “editor” they can’t see the Templatera templates, which is very important. Templatera is installed with the default settings. What do I have to change, that an “editor” might see the Templatera templates in the backend?

can i create templates for single posts or single categories? can i also edit the single.php template or is this not necessary with this plugin? using visual composer on its own, i have not been able to edit single blog posts and how they are displayed nor the category page either. im hoping that this will provide functionality so that i can do this

Hello, you can create templates for single page, post, etc. The category pages are controlled by the theme and hence they cannot be altered.

Hello, I would like to pay you for a customization based on this plugin, is it possible ? After instal of your plugin, I would like that each pages using a template is STILL editable, and I would like that the edits done in the template manager only edits the parameter edited. It means that if I edit a row structure or a color in any VC element, it will only update this in pages using the template. And not the content that I did not edit in the template. Is it ok ? thanks

Hello, Unfortunately, we do not undertake customisation work. However we can recommend you to check envato studio as they some some quality developers.

Thanks, because I do not find in enovato studio someone with VC skills to do that

Hello, A php developer with a knowledge of js will be able to customise it.

Hello! We have about 40 custom post types I need to add a template to – would this plugin be able to speed this up? It would be great if I could have a VC template and have these post-types utalize it, but re-use it if I make a change to the template! let us know thx: )

Rohan what I mean is: say we have a template. Then we apply it to 40 custom posts, can that be done automatically? Especially as the custom post types are being generated automatically as well :)

We’re using advanced custom fields so hopefully those are all set outside VC.

Is there such a feature as a template override where we could apply a template, override a portion, then edit the template and the overrides stay intact? That would be amazing.

Thanks<

Hello, The template should be added manually via the templatera element. However, you add it, any changes that you make to the template will be reflected onto the posts where it is being added. Unfortunately, we do not have a override feature.

When editing a template I’m no longer able to save the changes I’ve made. Visual Composer is also not working properly when I edit parts of the template. For example, on a text block, when the editor loads it only has the Text view available. Hitting ‘Save changes’ doesn’t close the pop-up, but the text in the main editor window does update. Then after saving the changes aren’t kept. I’m also seeing an issue on the icon element – I can’t add a URL for a link – the button does nothing. This was working last week, and I’ve deactivated all plugins installed since then. I’m running the latest VC and Templatera.

Hi. I read the description, and I read the home page of Templatera, but I don’t understand what are the big differences between this and Visual Composer. I thought VC can also create templates as well.

Hello, The templatera is a templates manager which will allow you to create and edit the templates. The visual composer can only create a template and it does not allow editing it. You can check the demo video here: http://vc.wpbakery.com/addons/templatera/ for all of it’s features.
