I am trying to: Integrate Layouts with Genesis

I visited this URL:

I created a new file in my Genesis Child theme directory, as suggested in the thread in the link above, but I do not know how this is being called, I suppose creating and placing this file in the child theme's folder alone is not enough... I also tried integrating the code into the functions.php in the child theme, but that did not work either.

Hi Iris,

As the instructions suggest in order to integrate layouts with your theme you need to create a new page template.

Create a new template called layouts-page.php and add this to it.

* layouts-page.php (the Template for displaying all single posts)
get_header(); ?>
<div id="primary" class="content-area">
  <div id="content" class="site-content" role="main">
      the_ddlayout( 'default-layout' );
  </div><!-- #content -->
</div><!-- #primary -->
<?php get_footer();

Whenever you go to create a page in wordpress ensure that you select this template as your page template.

This is essentially all you need to do for layouts to start working with your theme.


Ah, the penny has dropped, finally 🙂 Thanks!
