Master Templates

To efficiently use DXM Translations or apply DXM Workflow to templates ready for translation, WordPress users require a centralized space from which to manage their templates.

As Templates in DXM WordPress are auto shared, it is important to indicate which template is the Master Template and which site hosts it before applying functionality such as DXM Translations or DXM Workflows.

Master Template functionality in Sharing allows a user to specify which site will host the Master version of a template.

Non-Master templates

Click Edit on a shared (non-master) post. The options displayed are different to those on a Master template.

  • To navigate to the Master Template, select the pencil icon in the green highlighted Sharing row or click the hyperlink.
Note: If you click Edit Display Conditions, the user is warned that changes are not allowed to the content. From this pop-up, choose either to continue with Edit Display Conditions or Go to Master (which will take the user to the Elementor Edit view of the Master Template where and from there, the user can Edit with Elementor).
