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, meta data, 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 your own creatively designed template from scratch using Elementor page builder, JetThemeCore and JetEngine plugins from Crocoblock subscription.
Let’s explore how to do it properly.
Creating a Single Post Page Template
Step 1 – Navigate to Crocoblock > My Library tab in WordPress Dashboard.
Here you’ll see the Theme Parts block with the headers, footers, sections, and pages templates. In case you’ve got JetThemeCore plugin, you’ll also have Archive and Single blocks, that are here to help you create custom Archive and Single post pages with Elementor. Just open Single block and here click Add New button in the top left corner.
Step 2 – 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.
Step 3 – 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 widgets for displaying dynamic content, like meta fields, repeaters, for Single Post page, using JetEngine plugin.
Please, note, that you can display the default post data, such as post title and content, using Dynamic Field widget as well.
Design the template
Step 1 – You can insert pre-designed sections template via Magic Button and customize them in your own way.
Step 2 – Style up the content using vast stylization settings available for the widgets you’ve placed to the Single post page template and click Publish.
Step 3 – After all the work is done, let’s open Settings block located in the bottom left corner, and here click Conditions.
Here you can apply the newly created Single Post page template to the entire site, to any custom post type, to the particular post, to all the posts from one particular category or tag, etc.
Step 4 – Next hit Update button to save the changes, and feel free to view the results on your site.
As you can see, it’s pretty easy to customize your Single Post template however you like!
