I am using an extension that gives me the possibility to create a category/blog from articles located at another of my websites. This specific extension is called "Multi Sites Category Blog" (see attachment)

When I open my Themler editor and link to the specifiec menu-item it opens as a deafult page instead of a log layout. Therefore I cannot edit the posts and the page looks not good. Anyone ideas how I can handle this?

Hello,

The Default Template is used for all components which have no other matching templates (Post, Page, Blog, etc). For example, Joomla Category List Layout, Login page, Contact Page, etc. will use Default Template
Also, the Default Template will be applied to the pages created by external Joomla components, except VirtueMart pages, which have their own Templates.
Looks like this is your case.

In Joomla theme the Blog Template is used for a Joomla Category Blog and Featured Articles layouts if they are not a website Front page. So the item should have either of these layout to use Blog template.

Sincerely,
Nettie
