Add New Templates in My Templates
Firstly, you need to create your template from Elementor.
You’ll have to build your page's content considering the role of the elements, for example:
the Post Title;
the Featured image;
the main Post Content;
the Terms it belongs;
the customized Post Meta you’ve decided to use on your page;
the Read More button;
more Content Widgets.
You can associate your template globally to the whole type, no obstacles, no filters, just a project-oriented system that will allow you to easily define the layout of your single pages. Moreover, you can do the same for the elements displayed in the archives that we called “Archive Blocks”.
In the menu on the right you'll find:
all Post Types, (Post, Page, and CPT);
all Post Taxonomies, (Category, Tag and Custom);
Other special Archive pages, like Search and Author.
You can set Template visualizations for:
Single pages, single visualization post;
Archive pages, a list of filtered posts.
Force visualization for all the Post of a specific Type to be rendered with a selected Template,
previously created with Dynamic Widget.
You can also use the Full-Width Template to quickly remove all the native Theme sidebar.
WordPress generates automatically a variety of Archive pages:
Post Type, like all Articles page;
Term, with all Post associated;
Date, all post for a specific Month, Week, Day.
You can decide to override:
with Boxed or FullWidth options the single Post Preview in the list with a custom Template. You can also decide how many columns for each responsive visualization;
with Canvas, the entire page where you can replace the native list with your own. You can set the position, the columns, the element in the list, and much more.
The Template selected should have a Widget inside that will render the list of the posts of the current query (so you can use Dynamic Post or View).
If you’d like to have a page with a different layout, you can define it directly from the article.
Exactly like you select a different template from “Attributes”, you can control Elementor’s default layout.
If a chain of articles has a specific Taxonomy associated, you can decide to have a whole new graphic.
All of this while you’re building your elements, without jumping from one thing to another.
