Page/Page template & themeswitcher

Post by Tata » Sun Jun 18, 2017 7:46 am

Maybe that's no bug but expected functionig. Anyway:
Page/Page template assigning to chosen page or subpage works fine if:
  • themeswitcher is not installed
  • themeswicher is installed with $plugin_cf['themeswitcher']['prefer_page_theme']="true";.
If $plugin_cf['themeswitcher']['prefer_page_theme']="";, &themeswitcher_select=alt_template works fine but individual template settings in Page/Page template are ignored.
Testing at http://169new.cmsimple.sk (comparing the Demo and Templaty subpages).
If interested to test it too, I'll PM the password.
CMSimple.sk
It's no shame to ask for an answer if all efforts failed.
But it's awful to ask without any effort to find the answer yourself.

Yes, that is intentional. I suggest you set prefer_page_theme=true, but only choose a page specific template, if that is really desired or necessary.
