I'm in a situation where I need to face a situation when there is a WordPress site with landing page and several internal page designs. I know for such situations there is recommended to create more template files for pages with some comments at the beginning like
Template Name: Some Style
I've done this already, but the problem is that many of the internal pages contains boxes, areas that are independent from the main template. Let me show you:
So let's suppose we have the main article area and two other boxes. All the three areas have different design. First with some nice background, the bottom left article in a box with background and gradient stuff, the bottom right article is a box also with background and gradient with title and content inside.
I was asked to solve the situation in a manner when the site admin (who don't know any piece of coding) wants to add another similar article with same structure, to be able to do this.
Should I create one single template for this or three? What do you suggest? The idea when new article/page is added, to contain only the usual WordPress generated codes like h2, p, i, etc. So no manually added div's, classes and similar stuff.
Did you faced similar situation? I searched the internet and did not found anything yet. I was thinking something about shortcodes but that will involde tu use codes like
[some]content...[/some] or even to have children pages, but nothing is clear for me yet. What do you suggest for me?
Thanks in advance! :)
