    How to create a page template for an article
    Hello everyone,
    GP version: 2.4.1
    I am a beginner and I would like to create a layout template for the articles and will be used by default by the authors, I would like to be able to add a menu etc … and these elements would always be present in the articles.
    I tried to create an element but I couldn’t do it.
    Ideally a video will be appreciable but I did not find.
    Thanks everyone!

    Hello David, Thanks for your quick response!
    No I do not have a template I just want to create one (as with elementor for pages) so that it is then defined by default by the authors of articles. this will allow me to have uniform articles having the same presentation.

    Probably best to start with designing the requirements.
    On one hand it may require coding a custom template or using a plugin like CPT UI / Toolset Views etc to do this. This would be the case if its a custom post type that had custom functionality or additional fields. As opposed to styling the Post

    On the other hand it may be possible just using the Theme Customizer settings and the Elements module:

    If you see any examples that are similar to what you need i am happy to let you know what i think.
