4. Page Templates and Pages

Dottoro theme comes with some page templates that help you in creating pages most commonly used on a website. There are page templates for displaying a list of posts (Blog, News, Portfolio, Imagefolio), others for displaying special pages (Contact, Authors, Archives, Bookmarks and Sitemap) and the universal Default page template that give you full control over the content of a page.

Besides page templates, the theme provides several options that allow you to change look and feel of your pages. Some of them are available for every page regardless of its template (General Page settings and Gallery settings) and there are many page template specific options also. For instance, the header and subheader options are supported for every page regardless of its template and allow you to select a header and subheader for the page. Furthermore, you can set the position of the sidebar for every page regardless of its template.

Moreover, it is also possible to set the default settings for pages. So you don't have to change the same things every time when you create a new page. And to make this system more flexible, you also have the ability to apply default settings to only for certain pages, for instance, pages from the same author.

4.1 Default Page Settings

In the Dottoro theme, you can set default settings for pages under Pages » Page Settings. You can set the header and subheader you want to display on the top of your pages, the position of the sidebar, select widget areas for the sidebar and the footer and much more. Moreover, selectors allow you to specify default settings only for certain pages, for instance, pages from the same author (more on selectors).

With the help of default settings you can avoid setting the same things every time when you create a new page and if you want to change a setting for all pages, you only need to change it in one place. And of course, all default settings can be overridden for each individual page.

Page Settings
Header Here you can select a header for pages.
The "Default" means that this value will be taken from the Header option under Theme Options » General » Header. The items (site logo, title and description, primary navigation and Header widget area) are positioned absolutely in the "Standard" header that enables you to set their positions in the theme editor.
For further details, please see the Header Customization section.
Subheader Allows selecting a subheader to be displayed on pages. Read more in the Subheaders section.

4.2 Page Templates

4.3 Pages created from page templates

The first thing you should do when you create a new page is to select its page template on the right and click Publish/Update or Save Draft.

After saving it, you will find the setting options provided by the Dottoro theme below the WordPress content editor. Some of the options are available for every page regardless of its template (General Page settings and Gallery settings) and there are many page template specific options also. They will be detailed in the following sections.

4.3.1 General page settings
These settings are available for every page, regardless of its template.
General Page Settings
Ghost Page There are cases when we need unclickable menu items that have submenus. Similar to this, you may need unclickable items in the page hierarchy displayed by breadcrumbs. Ghost pages provide a solution to this issue. With them, you can create pages invisible to the visitors that you can use to create menu items and that can also be set as parents of pages.
Body CSS Class Space separated list of CSS classes to add to the BODY class attribute on the page. This option allows you to style the page individually.
Additionally, since selectors allow you to target pages according to their attributes, such as CSS class, this option is also useful to apply individual settings to the page. For instance, you can select different headers for pages according to their Body CSS Class (more on selectors).
Post CSS Class Space separated list of CSS classes to add to the class attribute of the HTML element that holds the page content. You can use this option to apply individual styles to the page in listings, slideshows and on the single page as well.

On the single page, the holder element is always an article element.

In slideshows and listings if the post template used for displaying the page contains a [post_article] shortcode and the "add_post_classes" attribute of the post_article shortcode is set to true, then the CSS classes will be added to the HTML article element. Otherwise, the CSS classes will be added to the HTML wrapper element of the list item/slide that contains the page.

Additionally, since selectors allow you to target pages according to their attributes, such as CSS class, this option is also useful to apply individual settings to the page in slideshows and listings. For instance, you can select different post templates for pages according to their CSS class in a slideshow or listing (more on selectors).

Header Select a header for the page. The "Default" means that this value will be taken from "Page Settings". The items (site logo, title and description, primary navigation and Header widget area) are positioned absolutely in the "Standard" header that enables you to set their positions in the theme editor.
For further details, please see the Header Customization section.
Subheader Allows selecting a subheader for the page. The "Default" means that this value will be taken from "Page Settings". Read more in the Subheaders section.
Subheader Title Specifies the subheader title of the page. Use the [subheader_title] shortcode to display the subheader title. Read more in the Subheaders section.
Subheader Teaser Specifies the subheader teaser of the page. Use the [subheader_teaser] shortcode to display the subheader teaser. Read more in the Subheaders section.
Show Page Title Set whether to display the page title in the content or not. The "default" value means that this value will be taken from "Page Settings".
Show Breadcrumb Select whether the breadcrumb should be displayed on the page or not. The "default" value means that this value will be taken from "Page Settings".
For further details, please see the Breadcrumb section.
Gallery Popup Select a gallery popup for the page. The "default" value means that this value will be taken from "Page Settings".
For details, please see the Gallery Popup option under Theme Options » General.
Sidebar Position Here you can set the position of the sidebar or remove the sidebar. The "default" value means that this value will be taken from "Page Settings".

Footer Widget Areas Select the widget areas you want to display in the footer. The "Default" value means that this value will be taken from "Page Settings". Read more in the Widget Areas section.
Footer Type Allows selecting the type of the footer. You can select whether to show the full footer (widgets and copyright), only the copyright, only the widgets, or no need footer at all. The "Default" value means that this value will be taken from "Page Settings".
Here you can create galleries for the current page. Each gallery can contain any number of images, videos and other media, slides, pages and posts. Self hosted (attachments) and external media (such as YouTube and Vimeo videos) are also supported. Every single gallery or even a group of galleries can be displayed as a list (similar to post list), as a slideshow and they can also be shown in popup windows.
