Reply To: All Post Type Field Sets show when using default WP template (i.e. page.php)

Hey Trav,

Bizarrely, when you select ‘Homepage’ in the Templates drop down in the back-end (i.e. ’site_home.php), then all other Field Sets switch off – just like you intended.
We use multiple templates that each may often be used by multiple pages.

For some reason the only template that doesn’t honour the visibility settings is page.php.
Hmmmm…. perhaps it’s something to do with the fact that page.php doesn’t have (or need) a PHP template declaration – you know that comment at the top of a custom template PHP file that tells WP that the file should show up as a template in the back end.

As you know single.php etc.. are also similar files in that they do not need the template declaration.
We don’t use them, so they too may not honour the visibility settings – does this help?
You get the feeling it’s just a small if statement somewhere.

Anyway… hope it helps.

All the best

Dave

MasterPress 1.3.6 is now available

Masterpress 1.3.6 is a compatibility release. It resolves an edge case with shared fieldsets not working for MySQL 8 when the fieldset is limited to more than 1 post type or taxonomy or excluding any post types or taxonomies.

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.
