    I am trying to get the content of my current page to show up in a column.

    So my page has an image and a write up.

    I want to make a template that:

    – has the image span the width of the document

    – head rule

    – has the columns 25% 50% 25% with the write up of the page in the 50% column.

    Is this possible?

    Also it would be great to get text from custom fields show up in other columns.

    Thanks for looking.




    yes I think so – use the “slideshow” element, the “post/page content” element (it will display the current page/post id by default if you don’t set a specific id) and use the “columns” element with a 3 column structure with 25/50/25.

    You can set a page, a category, direct text input or a widget as column content. Custom fields are not supported (yet).


    That’s that I thought but here is the problem.

    In my column element i have:

    25% = widgets

    50% = page (but specific page)

    25% = widgets

    I am finding that I can only set a specific page as the content in the “columns” as opposed to the “slideshow” element which lets you display the content of the current page/post id.

    If I were to use this as a template for my pages I would need to make one for each page, which defeats the purpose of a template.

    Is it possible to get the written data from the current page into a “column”?

    Thanks for your help.



    Oh – ok this is not possible yet. I’ll ask Kriesi to implement this option/feature in the next update.


    Ok thanks. That would really be helpful.

    Do you know if there are any short codes or anything that I can stick in an html widget that would get the current page info?



    As the dude said its not possible yet, I will have a look if its somewhat easy to implement. Unfortunately I dont know any widget that displays the page data of the current page…

    This is a nice temporary work around.
