Suffusion
Difficulty setting plugin theme in place of default theme (5 posts)

    I'm using the Suffusion 3.8.2 Theme. Trying to create a fresh "Books" page and incorporate the Now Reading plugin in place of the default blog theme used currently on the homepage and post pages. Within the admin "Pages" tab, the templates drop-down does not include Now Reading plugin when editing the "Books" page. But, when reviewing "Suffusion Options" under Appearance, the NR template appears under Templates.

    Here is my reading library page automatically created using the default layout from Suffusion Template. How do I add the NR plugin template to a page so that it overrides the default them I'm using for blog posts, etc.?

    Any help is much appreciated. I'm new to this plugin and the WP theme configuration.

    The page you are seeing for your library is a special one for Now Reading - it is definitely not the one you use for blog posts. Suffusion comes bundled with specific support for Now Reading and the templates, and believe me, you don't want to see the one that comes bundled with the plugin: your sidebar will show below the content and a lot of things will go wrong. If you want to customize it further, you can create a child theme, copy over the entire now-reading folder from wp-content/themes/suffusion into your child theme, then make the changes there.

    This is great information. I especially loved the video tutorial. I now have the child theme folder setup with style.css and copied in the Now Reading folder files. Where do I tell the Now Reading plugin to show the library on my books page?

    You don't have to tell it anything. Now Reading automatically picks up the library.php file from that folder. You can edit that file in your now-reading folder as you please.
