Hi, this is probably a question that’s been asked before, but from the support topics I read I still didn’t understand it fully.
I’m trying to create a custom post layout so I can add some custom fields that will be the same on all those posts.
I thought I could simply copy single.php and put in the child theme folder as single-posttemplate.php and then I could select it in the post editor under Page Attributes. However, it doesn’t show up. Or does this only apply to pages?
Hi Tom, I did add that indeed, and I do see the option to select the template when I make a new page. However, I think I misunderstood something, so please correct me if I’m wrong:
If I want to make a template for posts, I need to make a new custom post type first, and then single-customposttypename.php will be used for that? Meaning you can only have one template per custom post type, not multiple templates you can select in a dropdown menu like you can with pages.
