Using the templates for pages and posts is easy. Select the template in backend on the right side in the page/post edit screen in Page Attributes > Template or Post Attributes > Template. If you want to use a specific one for example page-sidebar-left.php as your default one, simply copy it to your child-theme and rename it to page.php
There are 6 templates for pages and 4 for posts.
Shows the sidebar on the right side when sidebar is active. If there is no widget in the sidebar, there will be white space.
Shows the sidebar on the left. If there is no widget in the sidebar, there will be white space.
No sidebar is displayed. The content is displayed across the entire width of the container.
Shows the featured image as a background image. If there is no image, the background is dark. No sidebar is displayed.
Does not show a heading of the page or featured image and no sidebar, only the content wrapped in the container. This is the perfect template to create beautiful landing pages with a pagebuilder like site origin. These can stretch sections across the entire width of the page and in turn display their content in the container. If you prefer to write HTML, you can also add the class
width-100 to your div. The content is then displayed in full screen width beyond the container. Read Width & Height Classes for more information.
Shows only the content without a container. Best choice if you prefer to write your landing pages in HTML.
