Hello ! I made a template for my Joomla website, but i forgot to configure for each part (page, blog, ...). It's seems to me that it's a little complicated when we don't need to have different template for each. Why it is not possible to start with only one template for an entire website ? And create other if necessary ? I find it 's a useless waste of time.
What do you think about it ?

Thanks

Hi,

In general you can make other templates to look the same by following a few conditions:

  1. Use shared areas: Header, Sidebars, Footer. And place all controls that you want to share between templates inside these areas. You should enable these areas on each template if you need them.
  2. CMS content (post/page) is outputted by the Posts control which is located inside "CMS Content" Sidebar (check Layout tab), The Posts control can have the same style on all templates if you style it on one template, make it default and then reset all other posts control styles to default:

Set as Default:

default-post.png

Set as Default:

default-post-2.png

  1. configure default styles under the Design tab.

Please let us know if you have any other questions.

Thank you,
Olivia
