I am trying to add to separate views into the front page / Home page.

They are both added in separate layouts, but I am having some troubles displaying them at the same time on the front page.

One View shows post type Tjenester, and the other one shows Ansatte.

They are added the following way in index.php:
<?php the_ddlayout( 'tjenester-front-page' ); ?>
<?php the_ddlayout( 'ansatte-front-page' ); ?>

They are not added

Hello. Thank you for contacting the Toolset support.

Could you please share edit screenshot of both the layout or temporary access details so that I can check what you have added with both the layouts?

Well - I just contacted our developers and they said its not a good practice to display two layouts on the single page and this might not work as well.

I checked with your install and I see that you are displaying view's cell with both the layout. The suggested approach is to create the single layout and add view's cell to display both views using single layout. I hope this makes sense to you.


Hello again,

Thanks for checking that out.

I was worried about that, is there an other way I can display 2 views or archives like this into the same page without adding them to the same layout? I am wondering about this because this would really solve the problem.

Looking forward to hear from you again,

Well - View's PHP API you can display the multiple views but you can use with or without layout. Either disable both view's using PHP API or display one view using layout and one view using PHP API.

For example:

$args = array(
    'id' => '99999',
echo render_view( $args );

- 99999 is the view ID your want to display. You should replace it with your original view ID.

Thank you,

Great, short and specific. That really solves the problem.
