Support » Fixing WordPress » Another newbie question about Templates

  • I watched a video and read about creating and editing templates in the 2022 theme. Interesting. Lots of info about that.

    What I could find no info about is how to use templates. How do I select a template for a page? How do I insert a header or footer template in a page.

    Somehow I could find nothing anywhere about this.

    Thanks,

    1. How to Make Use of Templates

    This link will give you the complete knowledge of using templates.

    2. How do I select a template for a page?

    Your theme will have a set of templates. You can choose any template of your interest. If you are looking for more templates, you can install a plugin called “Starter templates” by Brainstorm Force from WordPress.org.

    3. How do I insert a header or footer template on a page?

    You can use this link to learn about inserting a header or footer template on a page.

    Actually, I had found the place in setting where one selects a template. However, I had gone through the process of editing a 2022 theme template and neither the one I edited nor the other stock 2022 templates showed up in the settings template area. All that showed up was a blank template a large header template and page no separators template.

    The 2022 Theme comes with a bunch of templates and a convenient template editor. But none of them show up in the settings template area.

    I’m a bit confused about how the left column works in the dashboard. When I click on the theme and then “edit” and then the WordPress symbol I get all the 2022 templates. When I go back to the dashboard and edit the page, go to settings as the template instructions give and go to templates, none of the templates associated with 2022 theme show up.

    Did my question not make sense? I noticed I didn’t get any replies.

    I’ve been watching videos on the 2022 Theme and one thing that shows up in the video I am watching is that when the instructor clicks the + button various blocks show up, including a section called THEME where all of the available templates and more related to the theme are available, including template parts like headers.

    When I click on + there is no section called theme.

    I am using the same theme as the instructor, i.e. the 2022 theme.

    How do I access the theme blocks?
