Question about one of the directions (Template Tree) in the Themeing your Site tutorial...

 Hi, I've been trying to follow the tutorials to edit templates, and I'm hung on one of the steps on Page 4 of Themeing your Site. The Templates section states "To get a list of all of the templates for a given page, choose the "tree" option from your toolkit." I'm not able to find the Tree option on the page given in the example just previous, and I'm uncertain what "toolkit" is being referenced. Can anyone help me understand this better? I've been looking for days and have just about given up.

Thanks for any help!


Edit- included pics of the Start page both in and out of Edit mode. Please direct me to the Template editor on either of these pics?

Sorry for the confusion.
I've answered your question in this topic:
ocPortal - View topic: catalogues and catagory template.

However, I'd also just like to say that please feel free to ask if something isn't relatively easy to find. We'll try and answer quickly, but it'll also help us lay things out better for version 4.

Was I helpful?
  • If not, please let us know how we can do better (please try and propose any bigger ideas in such a way that they are fundable and scalable).
  • If so, please let others know about Composr whenever you see the opportunity or support me on Patreon.
  • If my reply is too Vulcan or expressed too much in business-strategy terms, and not particularly personal, I apologise. As a company & project maintainer, time is very limited to me, so usually when I write a reply I try and make it generic advice to all readers. I'm also naturally a joined-up thinker, so I always express my thoughts in combined business and technical terms. I recognise not everyone likes that, don't let my Vulcan-thinking stop you enjoying Composr on fun personal projects.
  • If my response can inspire a community tutorial, that's a great way of giving back to the project as a user.

To save viewer clicks, the solution is to ensure that the Login Box (Side Personal Stats in the Block Chooser) is added to your sidebar. This gives you the View button and dropdown referenced in the tutorial. I may have removed it accidentally.
