@  Wotsit : (01 July 2015 - 07:01 PM) oh and just in case nobody told you - 4.0.9.2 is out
@  Wotsit : (01 July 2015 - 05:46 PM) We're now on Tier III (Advanced Development)
@  Wotsit : (01 July 2015 - 05:45 AM) Unfortunately we can't do anything until Tier II have looked at it. Once it's working on 4.0.8.1 then I'll try upgrading to 4.0.9.1.
@  nylyon : (30 June 2015 - 08:48 PM) I'm running 4.0.9.1 without issue. Looking forward to IBTheme restart and hopefully some porting of the skins to themes!

@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 04:04 PM) No, nor did I with starting from scratch - just updating I have problems with. Trouble is it's a different problem each time.
@  doctorsexy : (28 June 2015 - 01:51 PM) funny i havent had a problem with it , but i started from scratch
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 11:28 AM) Every upgrade I've done so far results in different things. Only one was partially my fault for not noticing that their .htaccess didn't have a preceding dot
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:39 AM) Wotsit and Sherri if you need a hand with anything let me know
@  legion : (28 June 2015 - 07:38 AM) WOW glad I have not made that switch to 4.0 yet :(
@  Wotsit : (28 June 2015 - 02:15 AM) Here we go again - ticket submitted. It's telling me I'm using a 3rd party theme when it's theirs :(
@  Wotsit : (27 June 2015 - 05:44 AM) Database exported - anything from here on in won't appear on IBTheme

Template Management


In the IP.Content ACP, you will notice that there are 3 separate template sections of the ACP:
  • Block Templates
  • Page Templates
  • Database Templates
  • Article Templates
Within each templates section, you can create containers to group your templates into logical groupings. For instance, you may wish to create a grouping for each database you create, and then place the database templates appropriately into the container representing the database itself. Or you may wish to create multiple front page templates, and group them all together in the article templates area. You can use containers for whatever purposes you may have, or not at all: it's up to you!

Templates can be reordered by dragging and dropping the rows up and down, and they can be moved from one container to another via drag n drop as well.

Certain meta data about the templates are stored when you create new database or article templates, allowing IP.Content to tailor other areas of the ACP to help you out. For example, the software stores the template type when you create a new template. This allows us to show only "category listing" templates in the "category listing template" selection dropdowns. Similarly, the template tag help panel can automatically know which template type you are editing without you having to specify.

Properly making use of templates can help you push out pages on your site in a uniform manner quickly and easily, and without having to "reinvent the wheel" each time a new page is ready to be published.
