In Themler (v499) there is a function of creating additional templates for 'home, blog, post' and others. The program generates additional templates giving them consecutive numbers.
A new (additional) template can be edited and a different version can be made (different themes, different layout, other Joomla module positions, different graphics) - unfortunately this does not work for blog type templates, any modification in the new version of the template is visible in the original template - and as a result, we have several of the same types of blog types (they differ only in consecutive number).
Creating new versions of the template for 'home and post' works correctly - you can create different templates.
The problem concerns the computer version and the Joomla plugin.
When are you going to fix this error?

Hello Janusz,

Please try to click Customize Template Style on the top in the Posts tab - then only the selected template will be modified.

Sincerely,
Nettie

Hi Nettie.

It still doesn't work as expected.
I added a blog template, then I marked the 'content & sidebars' area, then the 'posts' area, then the 'posts' tab appeared with the inscription (link) 'customize template style'. By selecting this option, I can make small changes to the appearance of the 'blog 2' template (changing the color, font size, etc.), but wanting to change the way the 'blog 2' template is displayed by choosing the 'replace section' option (i.e. I choose a ready display method from the library) the change is made in the 'blog' base template.
Now I actually have 2 types of templates for 'blog', but I achieve it in the opposite way than I wanted (than I did in the case of the template 'home' and 'post' - because in these templates new versions of the templates appear under the following numbers 'home 2' 'post 2' etc., and in the case of the 'blog' template I have to copy my basic template to 'blog 2' and change the 'blog' template. Now, when creating another 'blog 3' template, I get a copy of the modified 'blog' template.
And 'fun' it starts all over again - minor changes to the 'blog 3' template are accepted, but the overall change in displaying already applies to the 'blog' template (which I think should remain unchanged).
Now I know how to create additional 'blog' templates, I just have to remember about this strange order of creation and modification.

By the way, I will ask what is the page template 'page' and 'default' used for?

Regards
Janusz

Hi Nettie. It still doesn't work as expected. I added a blog template, then I marked the *'content & sidebars'* area, then the 'posts' area, then the *'posts'* tab appeared with the inscription (link) *'customize template style'*. By selecting this option, I can make small changes to the appearance of the *'blog 2'* template (changing the color, font size, etc.), but wanting to change the way the *'blog 2'* template is displayed by choosing the 'replace section' option (i.e. I choose a ready display method from the library) the change is made in the *'blog'* base template. Now I actually have 2 types of templates for *'blog'*, but I achieve it in the opposite way than I wanted (than I did in the case of the template *'home'* and *'post'* - because in these templates new versions of the templates appear under the following numbers *'home 2' 'post 2'* etc., and in the case of the 'blog' template I have to copy my basic template to *'blog 2'* and change the 'blog' template. Now, when creating another *'blog 3'* template, I get a copy of the modified *'blog'* template.
