Antoniou: Manvelyan: do i need to use post format?
Manvelyan: If you want an option to do user selectable formats for posts, post formats are one option. post formats are not the same as custom posts.
Stanwood: Manvelyan: isthis what you were saying: https://developer.----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/themes/basics/template-hierarchy/#single-post
Manvelyan: Post formats don’t seem to get much love
Manvelyan: Django_: start with what you’re actually asking me
Bache: Manvelyan: that link was referencing what you said ‘look at the template hierarchy to find the appropriate naming for custom post templates’
Manvelyan: What is it you actually want to do, django_?
Mettler: Manvelyan: make a custom post ie when you hit the post instead of loading single.php it will load single-myCustomSingle.php
Manvelyan: Django_: I do not think you understand the meaning of custom post
Loeper: Manvelyan: how to force a dbase to use only utf8mb4 .because on my test server it uses for ´basic´wp the utf8mb4 but as soon someplugins are active it uses latin1 for their tables?
Hugle: Manvelyan: When I want to customize my PAGES I copy page.php and add * Template Name: Sidebar-Center.with that being said, I would like to do the smae thing but for posts
Ashmen: Does that make any sense?
Manvelyan: Be careful with utf8mb4 – a lot of hosts use older versions of MySQL that don’t suppor tit.
Busta: Using MySQL Version 5.6.23 here
Simeon: VectorX, it was my multi-language plugin polilang
Manvelyan: Django_: posts don’t support custom templates like pages do, so if they are regular posts ie., post_type == post then post formats might be the way to go.
Schnetzer: Simeon i thought i asked you to disable all the plugins and try, guess you didnt do that ;
Kornblum: Manvelyan: yeah that is what I am realizing, suppose I would like to change location of a sidebar or display it for certain posts.or change the content of sidebar for a certain post
Manvelyan: _Zodiac: if the plugins create their own tables, then you’ll need to modify the tables after the plugins create them — and risk breaking stuff. I don’t think you can override an exlicit “create table” statement issued by a plugin.
Manvelyan: Use the plugin widget context to change the widgets for a post or page, not a template
Rivenbark: Django_: Widget Context – https://----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/plugins/widget-context/
Simeon: VectorX, now finally did, sorry :
Manvelyan: If you want to change the location of a sidebar, you can do it via CSS based on some cl*** setting or via a post format
Manvelyan: Django_: it depends…
Viverette: Manvelyan: that is a nasty behavior of those plugins or is it me thinking wrong?
Manvelyan: _Zodiac: nasty? why? If I’m writing a plugin that uses its own tables and I expect things to work in certain ways, I’ll define the table to make sure they do.
Manvelyan: _Zodiac: especially if I wrote the plugin when a much older version of MySQL was current.
Obrist: Manvelyan: I understand, but that makes it sometimes! unusable for other languages?pointing to publicplugins from the repository
Manvelyan: If you need UTF8MB4 support in a plugin, it would be good to post a note to the plugin’s support page.
Manvelyan: And keep in mind that many hosts do not use current versions of PHP, MySQL,etc.
Reith: In a way I dont need the utf8mb4 but it is wordpress doing it on install or am I now totally wrong?
Manvelyan: See https://----escape_autolink_uri:a03ded6cd97ffffa8f7b4e1454f3eecc----.org/about/stats/
Manvelyan: The latest version of WP does it on new installs if its supported.
Manvelyan: So if you want plugins to work that way post a support request to the plugin author!
Paule: Hey guys, as per my earlier query this is what i was looking for incase anyone else is interested
Closs: On my form input for wordpress
