I would like to create a custom post type template that I can use for
courses on my elearning site. I am accustomed to creating and adding
custom wordpress templates using php – for example <?php get_header(); etc…
It appears that epik templates are all created using action hooks in
genesis so I am a little confused. And in epik when I create a post
there is no option to select the proper template to be used on the right side.
Epik works just like all other Genesis child themes, so to create a page template will be the same process. If you create a page template properly then it should show up on the right side of the of the “Page” (not Posts) editor. Page templates only work with Pages, so if you’re creating a “Post” then you won’t see that option. Here is an article on how it works – http://bit.ly/LUXEz0
Its actually for a post not a page. I am using LearnDash plugin to create courses and lessons and those are created as posts. My goal is to have a specific template just for a course page – separate from the general single Blog post template. I want to add instructor profile ,sharing information etc on all my “course” posts but obviously not on my general single Blog post.
