Page template and configuration options

In this article we will take a look at the available post and page templates and go through the rest of the provided post/page configuration options.

Page configuration

Configuration takes place in the Page tab on the right hand sidebar when editing a post or page.

The Summary metabox houses the available template options these override the layout selected in the Customizer. These are:

  • Default template: When this template is selected the item gets a content/sidebar layout, or whatever is set under Site Options > Layout in the Customizer.
  • Content / Sidebar: Items with this template will always display the content on the left and the sidebar on the right.
  • Sidebar / Content: Items with this template will always display the sidebar on the left and the content on the right.
  • Canvas: This is a completely blank (no header, menu or footer) template to be used with page builders and full site editors.
  • Full width: The content area on items with this template will span from one edge of the screen to the other. No sidebar is available on this template.
  • Full width boxed: The content area on items with this template will span the entire content width as set under Site Options > Layout in the Customizer. No sidebar is available on this template.
  • Full width narrow: Like the full width boxed template, but the content is a bit narrower. No sidebar is available on this template.

The Excerpt metabox can be used to display a custom subtitle on the Page Title section on pages (area just below the logo/menu – example).
