Confused on how to work with Cwicly's Themer

Hi there

These are extremely basic issues.
I am confused on how the Themer works:

  1. The Templates actually are shown in the pages (that’s not what I would expect from a template).
  2. It looks like those pages are completely independent from WP “Pages”.
  3. Is there a way to actually use Templates when adding a new page/post?

Thanks for illuminating me about such a basic problem… :wink:

Hey there @Paolo.

Maybe this can you give a solid starting point to understand the Themer a bit better:

Slightly different context, but same topic, so don’t get confused.

Thanks Marius

That takes care of using Global Parts and Parts.
But how do you use whole page Templates?

What if I create a template in Themer for my blog posts. How do I use ? Same thing goes for pages. What if I want to create several landing pages based on the same template?

I cannot find anything once I add a new page/post to choose from. Do I miss something?

Thanks a lot. I am still confused.

Hey @Paolo.

You can select your template individually per page/post/etc. here:

You can also apply them conditionally from the Themer itself, see the eye icon.

Hope that helps.

Of course…

But in my case I cannot choose from the different templates.
It seems to be taking the index page as the only reference. Is there an additional setting?
All visibility conditions are empty.

Thanks a lot!

I do have a homepage set in Themer. Which is actually already visible and live. This page does not show in my WP pages tab.
That confuses me the most.

Hi there @Paolo,

I do believe that default FSE (Full Site Editing) templates are not available in that dropdown.
You’ll want to create a custom one for anything you want to specifically apply to a post/page.

But you might also want to take a look at the Cwicly Themer’s conditions which should help you in targeting more globally.
