Different Theme On Different Pages


Best Answer eric, 13 May 2015 - 10:23 PM

You can indeed use the theme option in a shortcode, with the following caveats:

  • If you haven't already, I highly recommend first reviewing our new theme documentation for WordPress or standalone PHP users.
     
  • You should supply as its value the title of a theme, as defined in its manifest file. So for instance if you have a theme with the title tubepress/foobar, you could use the following shortcode:
    [tubepress theme="tubepress/foobar"]
    If you're using legacy (anything before version 4.0.0) TubePress themes, your theme's title will be prefixed with unknown/legacy-. For instance if you are using a TubePress 3.x.x theme called mytheme, you could use the following:
    [tubepress theme="unknown/legacy-mytheme"]
    
  • Only the theme selection that is saved in persistent storage (i.e. on the WordPress options page or, for standalone PHP users, the database.json file) will have its CSS and JS injected into the page. All other themes that you use will work just fine, but you will only be able to take advantage of their templates.

Does that answer your question? Themes are powerful but also somewhat complex, so I apologize if I'm not explaining the concepts very well. Let us know!

I'm trying to change the theme that Tubepress uses on different pages, but can't get it to work with the latest version. I used to be able to use [tubepress theme="xxx"] to specify which theme I wanted...but that no longer appears to work. Any ideas?

Thanks, that got me on the right track. I was a bit confused because the theme option no longer appears on the Core Options page: https://docs.tubepre...tions/core.html.

Hi @eric,

 

I have a similar problem, but for using different themes on the same page

[tubepress playlistValue="PL123465" galleryId="100" theme="tubepress/foobar"]
[tubepress playlistValue="PL654321" galleryId="200" theme="tubepress/fubar"]

Whatever I try, the theme of the first gallery would override the second one:

  • my 2 custom themes load ok (individually) using shortcode
  • also tried with 2 tubpress themes
  • tubepress cache disabled/enabled
  • api cache disabled/enabled
  • using a theme for just one gallery, hoping the other one would revert to the default

I am using tubepress_pro_4_1_10. This used to work fine with tubepress 3.1.1
