Foxman: Hi everyone, can anyone help me work out why a page is not picking up it’s default template from it’s slug? I have created a template page-executive-search.php but the page, with slug of executive-search is only picking up the default template
Qadeer: I think it might be because the page has a parent? the full slug is employers/executive-search – does this need to be included somehow in the filename for the template?
Dickstein: Fran___: have you ***igned the template to the page in the ‘edit page’ screen?
Styron: For example page-contact-us.php is the template used for the contact-us page but it doesn’t show up as an option, it just automatically applies based on the slug
Dickstein: That’s kinda cool. I didn’t know that this was possible
Petaway: Heh well it is possible as far as I know with most pages, but this one has a parent and I think it’s stopping it working
Brodt: But yeah, I’ve always created page templates that are very specific as just page-slug-name.php and then it can’t be chosen as an option for anything else
Muecke: So as not to confuse clients
Serrin: But for some reason this won’t work now
Fedezko: Argh why can’t I work this out? I don’t get it. Naming the page template the same as the slug works on every page except this one
Dad: Fran___: What The File – https://----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/plugins/what-the-file/
Hassan: Pixolin: I know what page template it’s currently using
Urtado: I just can’t get it to use the one I want
Pascucci: And it works on every other page using the same method, but this one it won’t
Giarusso: You can also ***ign custom templates
Barrigan: But I should be able to ***ign custom templates without the use of a plugin just like I have throughout the entire site
Butera: Yet this one page, it doesn’t work
Guevana: Who said you need a plugin to ***ign a template?
Digiovanni: Because it has a parent
Sheldon: I’ve checked the slug, it’s identical
Coult: If I remove the parent page so it’s just top-level it works
Clunie: How can I force / switch to loading a different post? Tried these: https://gist.github.com/fcc710eae9e609b20c31
Farnworth: Pesin: What’s the use case ?
Jandres: I’ve got a website with pages /a /b /c and dynamic landing pages that are build with cpt items on /foo/o/z /foo/o/y and /foo/o/a
Andzulis: If the landing page is /foo/o/a and /a exists then the page displayed should be 90% like /a
Kelker: So Im thinking its better to just load /a and add a little bit, instead of loading a new page and importing everything from /a
Lamborne: I think example code 3 did work
Lofland: It just didnt fool get_post_type
Keizer: Ill just add an extra check, as long as its just 1 I can live with that. problem solved. :
Bourdier: Stupid noob question. if i want to align something in two directions, bottom and right, how do i phrase it?
Sipp: Currently, it’s at p align=”right”
Slaugh: This isn’t really a WordPress question and you should ask at #css
Lavoie: Is there a way I can embed specific widgets to template instead of the get_sidebar for all widgets in sidebar
Dickstein: Erusko: I think you might need to go back and learn some basics of css positioning.
Warnberg: Lavoie: hm? you can register new widget areas and use them in your template as needed.
Dickstein: Erusko: this article is excellent, but long: http://www.brainjar.com/css/positioning/
Dickstein: Erusko: I recommend reading through it once, and then bookmarking it.
Schoemer: Thanks, i’ll take a look bobdobbs
Dickstein: Erusko: also, it’s best to put your css in an external stylesheet. inline styling is a weapon of last resort
Dickstein: Erusko: that’s no excuse.
Dickstein: Erusko: personally I find inline styling in themes maddening
