Templates

Use the power of the YOOtheme Pro page builder to create site-wide templates for the category blog, featured articles and single article pages.

YOOtheme Pro allows you to build and design templates with the YOOtheme Pro page builder. A template is a general layout which applies to pages of a specific type and loads their content dynamically into the layout. For example, a single article template applies the same layout to all articles. Learn more about dynamic content.

In the Templates panel you can add, edit and delete templates and assign them to different pages. For example, if you have a website for movie reviews, you could create templates for your blog posts but also dedicated templates for your movie reviews.


Templates

The Templates panel shows a list of all created templates grouped according to the page they are assigned to. A gray dot next to a template as well as a Builder button indicates that the template is used on the page shown in the preview.

Templates

To edit a template, simply click on it. A modal will open where you can change the template's name, status, assignment and filter options. A Delete button is also available in the upper right corner of the modal. To add a new template, click the New Template button. Give it a Name and choose a Page to assign the template.

Add a new template

Note The layout of a template can only be edited if it is shown in the preview on the right. Click the Builder button to edit the layout of the template.


Assignment

Templates can be assigned to the following pages. These are the same pages which can be linked in the Joomla menu.

Page Description
Single Article A page displaying a single article
Category Blog A page displaying articles filtered by category
Featured Articles The index page displaying all featured articles

Depending on the page, there are different filter options to specify and restrict the assignment. Filter options are combined using a logical AND operator. Use the shift or cmd key to select multiple options in a list.

Page Assignment
Single Article Select the categories where the template is applied to the articles. Articles from sub categories are not included. Additionally, select the tags where the template is applied to articles. If no category or tag is selected, the template applies to all articles.

Loading Priority

Multiple templates can be assigned to the same page. In this case, the template which appears first in the templates list will be applied. Change the order of the templates using drag and drop.

Disable Template

There is an option to disable the template and publish it later. The template will only be shown to the editor while the customizer is open. This allows you to work on a template without it being visible for the users of your website.
