How to Create a Single Post Page Template

 

From this tutorial, you will learn how to create a Single Post page with the JetThemeCore plugin that provides theme builder functionality as well as hundreds of templates.

When you use a theme for your site, it already has a post template by default. It consists of different elements: a title, the content block, a featured image, metadata, comments, etc.
Whenever you publish your new post it automatically has the layout and design that was set up in the theme’s template.

Yet, you can build a creatively designed template from scratch using the Elementor page builder, JetThemeCore, and JetEngine plugins from Crocoblock subscription.

Let’s explore how to do it properly.

1 Step — Open the Theme Builder

Navigate to Crocoblock > Theme Builder in WordPress Dashboard.

Here you’ll see the Theme Parts block with the headers, footers, sections, and pages templates. Open the Single block and click the “Add New” button in the top left corner.

2 Step — Create the Single page template

You can see a popup window that asks you to select the template type ( the type would be set to Single by default), and you’ll need to enter the template’s name (e.g., Single Page). Then click the “Create Template” button.

Select template type

As Elementor editor opens you’ll be able to create the post template and style it up according to your needs using any widget you consider suitable. You can use the JetEngine widgets for displaying dynamic content, like meta fields or repeaters for the Single Post page.

Please, note, that you can display the default post data, such as post title and content, using the Dynamic Field widget as well.
