If you have troubles since the update to WordPress 4.5 please read this post before opening a new thread.
I am trying to get the content of my current page to show up in a column.
So my page has an image and a write up.
I want to make a template that:
– has the image span the width of the document
– head rule
– has the columns 25% 50% 25% with the write up of the page in the 50% column.
Is this possible?
Also it would be great to get text from custom fields show up in other columns.
Thanks for looking.
yes I think so – use the “slideshow” element, the “post/page content” element (it will display the current page/post id by default if you don’t set a specific id) and use the “columns” element with a 3 column structure with 25/50/25.
You can set a page, a category, direct text input or a widget as column content. Custom fields are not supported (yet).
That’s that I thought but here is the problem.
In my column element i have:
25% = widgets
50% = page (but specific page)
25% = widgets
I am finding that I can only set a specific page as the content in the “columns” as opposed to the “slideshow” element which lets you display the content of the current page/post id.
If I were to use this as a template for my pages I would need to make one for each page, which defeats the purpose of a template.
Is it possible to get the written data from the current page into a “column”?
Thanks for your help.
Oh – ok this is not possible yet. I’ll ask Kriesi to implement this option/feature in the next update.
Ok thanks. That would really be helpful.
Do you know if there are any short codes or anything that I can stick in an html widget that would get the current page info?
As the dude said its not possible yet, I will have a look if its somewhat easy to implement. Unfortunately I dont know any widget that displays the page data of the current page…

This is a nice temporary work around.
