Tell us what you are trying to do?

Hi. I want my custom post types to generally match the theme templates. What's my best way to import a theme post template into views content templates? Or can you suggest a good way to use the theme templates to start and just add custom fields?

I find myself creating hosts of css simply to emulate the theme layouts.

Or am I being stupid and just missing something.

Thanks. Tony.

Is there any documentation that you are following?

Is there a similar example that we can see?

What is the link to your site?

Dear Tony,

You will need to design the content template manually, it is not possible to import a PHP theme file as a content template, here is a document about "Using Toolset with GeneratePress Theme":

And here is the document about "Create templates to display custom posts":

For your reference.


Thanks Luo - that's what I feared. I'm well used to creating Layouts and Views - and styling them. It just always seems a lot of wasted effort when I'm mostly trying to match the theme templates. Your drag and drop editor gets the information out very well but it's not very flexible in editing actual layout - especially then for large and small screens.

I love toolset for the custom types flexibility - the best I've found - but you need to work on styling. Thanks.
