Looking at this there is a setting in Themeler for the blog template to set columns. Testing it there is a bug in my opinion which may be a setting I am not aware of.

You can set the columns for each layout.

However the bug is once you set this the Joomla settings in the menu item no longer work. It will always show 2 columns regardless of the Joomla settings. If I have 2 blog pages and want 2 columns on one and 1 column on the other I would have to create 2 templates and assign them. I think this should be controlled by Joomla without any settings in Themeler myself.

If I set leading article to 1 and intro to 2 with 2 columns this works correctly, which is goo.

Thank you Dave

The settings you suggested in Themler were blank except the laptop setting which automatically has 1 column set. So I changed the computer icon setting to 2 columns and as you say the site changed, and as you said all my blogs in different places changed to the new template settings. However, I went back and changed the settings back to being blank, saved and all the blogs regained the Joomla settings I had originally added to my site!

So brilliant, just needed a kick from the looks of things.

Thank you for pointing to the Posts / Layout settings.

Kind regards

Eleanor

Odd, my settings are all controlled by Themeler. Joomla has no say and if I change it back to blank it's one column regardless of how many are in my Joomla menu item.

I hope this will be addressed by support. I am not quite sure what the purpose is for this in Themeler when Joomla has these settings. Maybe they will tell us.

I agree, it struck me as strange that the template would bother to control blog layout. I have to say however that Themler is just amazing and changing so fast I'm sure that will change in due course!

Cheers Dave

Hi,

We described Blog template and how it works in this article:
http://answers.themler.com/articles/36343/how-to-work-with-templates-in-joomla-themes

Simply open Blog Template block.

In short, if all fields are empty:

posts-columns-j.png

The default Joomla settings will be used.

If at least one field (for any responsive mode) is not empty the Themler blog layout will be used.
The only thing that Themler layout will show Leading articles according to the joomla settings because there is no appropriate option in Themler.

Simply keep all fields empty if you want to use Joomla blog layout. But please note that Themler theme doe snot provide additional stylesheet for joomla blog layout. In some cases it's not good for responsive.

Please let us know if you have any further questions.

Thank you,
Olivia
