    After using this theme, I have to say that I am finding it very limited in regards to including pages and posts. Maybe it is WordPress itself, but why can’t you have “pages” for website content and “posts” for blogging. What am I missing here? The blog styling is terrible compared to Avada. Some of the advanced layout builder is built for pages or posts but not for both? I can use Masonry for posts but not for pages? I can use categories for posts but not for pages? I can have side of page nav for posts but not for pages. I can have related posts for posts, only if I use the standard WP editor. The sidebar feature for posts is buggy if you would like to have a custom side bar for separate categories in posts, the list goes on and on.

    BTW – the support is awesome! Unfortunately they spend a lot of their time having to give out code tweaks for issues that should of been addressed or should be built in by default.
    I’m thinking that this theme is good for a basic site or blog, but not both.
    Do I sound frustrated? I am –

    Hello,

    Adding these lines to functions.php will enable all post types in most of the content elements you mention:

    add_theme_support('avia_template_builder_custom_post_type_grid');
    add_theme_support('add_avia_builder_post_type_option');
    

    Cheers!

    Hi Josue,
    Is there a way to add related posts to a Post at the bottom if I use the Avia Builder?
    Can this code be added to my child theme functions.php to auto size the featured image as well –
    $avia_config[‘imgSize’][‘entry_with_sidebar’] = array(‘width’=>710, ‘height’=>270);

    Thanks

    Hi!

    Is there a way to add related posts to a Post at the bottom if I use the Avia Builder?

    Not possible right now, i’d suggest using a shortcode-based related posts plugin.

    Can this code be added to my child theme functions.php to auto size the featured image as well –

    That should work, make sure to include global $avia_config at the start of your functions.php

    Best regards,
    Josue

    So if I use the ALB on a post, I loose all blog layout capabilities? Anyway to get blog layout- Gravatar, author, date etc. while using ALB?

    Thanks

    Hey!

    Yes, you’d need to manually insert those using ALB elements, you can also use the Comments element to render the Posts comments. The intend of the ALB is to serve as a empty canvas where you are not restrain to a predefined template.

    Sorry, I’m not following what you said or maybe I didn’t explain it well. I would like to ALB but for a post containing all the elements that are included without using the ALB as mentioned here – https://kriesi.at/support/topic/how-to-add-advanced-layout-manager-to-blog-posts/#post-120972
    This actually works but I’m afraid it would break on the next update.

    Thanks

    You can copy the modified template-builder.php to your child theme directory to avoid overriding by updates.

    Regards,
    Josue
