Template System

Add new templates in My Templates

First thing you need is creating your template from Elementor.
Here you’ll have to build your content from your page considering the role the elements own, for example:
  • the Post Title
  • the Featured image
  • the main Post Content
  • the Terms it belongs
  • the customized Post Meta you’ve decided to put in your page
  • the Read More button
  • more Content Widgets

Global Settings

You can associate your template globally to the whole type, no obstacles, no filters that complicate the procedure, just a project-oriented system that will allow you to easily define that your single pages will have a layout. Moreover, you’ll be able to make the same for the elements that will be displayed in the archives, which we’ve called “Archive Blocks”.

In the right menu you'll find:
  • all Post Types, (Post, Page and CPT)
  • all Post Taxonomies, (Category, Tag and Custom)
  • Other special Archive pages, like Search and Author
For each of them you can set Template visualization for his:
  • Single page, a single visualization post
  • Archive page, a list of filtered posts

Single Page

Force visualization for all Post of specific Type (or Taxonomy) to be rendered with selected Template,
previously created with Dynamic Widget (bundled in our plugin or also in Elementor PRO).
Optionally you can force all of this pages use the Full Width Template to quickly remove all native Theme sidebar.

Archive Page

Wordpress generate automatically various Archive pages:

  • Post Type, like all Articles page
  • Term, with all Post associated
  • Date, all post for a specific Month, Week, Day
Natively is very struggling customize this pages visualization and you need to code everything, but now it very simple!

You can decide to override:

  • with Boxed or FullWidth options the single Post Preview in the list with a custom Template (a simple that will contain Title, Image and a Read more) and you can decide how many columns for each responsive visualization
  • with Canvas, the entire page where you can replace the native list with your own, you can decide the position, the columns, the element in list...everything!
    The Template selected should have inside a Widget that will render the list of the posts of current query (so you can use Dynamic Post or View)

Post Setting

If you’d want to have a page with a different layout you could define it directly from the article. This is great because often not all the pages have to be structurally the same.

Exactly like you select a different template from “Attributes”, you can control Elementor’s default layout.

Term Setting

If a chain of articles has a specific Taxonomy associated, you can decide them to have a whole new graphic.

All of this while you’re building your elements, without jumping from one thing to another.
