WOOF :: template_for_post( Mixed $post )


  • String The full file name of the template (including extension), or the empty string if there is no specific template for this post.

Retrieves the full filename (including extension) of the template currently being used for the given post. This template is derived by considering the following in this order:

  • The specific template setup for the post in the WordPress UI (which is stored in the meta key _wp_page_template).
  • Looking for a template file named page-SLUG.php where the SLUG is the post slug.

If neither of these things are found, this method returns the empty string. 

Note that this does not consider the entire WordPress Template Hierarchy since it is a utility method for other parts of MasterPress that need to be this specific.



  • Mixed $post

    The post to check – this can either be:

    • A numeric post ID
    • A WOOF_Post or MEOW_Post object

Latest From the Blog

MasterPress 1.4.0 is now available

6th May 2024

This release has a focus on improving compatibility with PHP 8.2. The introduction of inheritance validation to PHP produced a lot of warnings when using MasterPress with PHP 8.2. I have updated most of the problematic code – but some code would have broken in previous PHP versions, so I have temporarily disabled inheritance validation… 

Plugin Requirements

MasterPress requires a minimum of WordPress version 4.9, MySQL 5.6, and PHP version 5.6.20.

We also recommend that PHP is configured to use a memory limit of 64MB per request (128MB may be required for sites with higher complexity).

This plug-in is not compatible with the WordPress.com hosted service.
