I hope I get some help with get_template_part function.

  • my starting point is a contact-us template (it's got map+address+emailform) that stores data in the database
  • my other template is where I have put get_template_part( 'contact-us' ).

If taken on its own, the contact-us page works fine (showing data and emailform) but when inserted in the other template then the map+address data are not outputted (yet emailform is working).

What can the problem be? Herewith is the contact-us code:

 * Template Name: Contact Us Page
 * Description: A Contact Us Page Template for careers theme
get_header(); ?>
<?php include(locate_template('top-header.php')); ?>
<div id="page-content">
<div class="container">
<div class="contenitore">
  <div class="page-content">
    <?php if(have_posts()) : while(have_posts()) : the_post(); ?>
        $address = get_post_meta($post->ID, '_meta_box_contact_address', true);
      <div class="contact-us">
        <div class="row">
          <div class="col-md-6">

  • Is this online? Can you share a url? Also, can you try removing the header and footer calls from this template and then referencing it from the other one? – Kavya Gokul Sep 20 '15 at 18:13
  • I did try removing header-footer but they don't influence the result (except the look of it). Here is the original contact-us page: (agendadelvolo.info/info-point), which I need to insert into this one: agendadelvolo.info/office (view the code, in <!-- start TEST APPENDED CONTACTUS -->) – Criss Sep 20 '15 at 18:47

It's sounds like js errors. Check from chrome console for possible errors.

Also why are you loading the contact-us template using get_template_part function?

  • Thank you for the tip. I initially inserted the whole contact-us code in the other page, and it did work. I'm not a PHP expert but I was looking for something like php_include and discovered that Wordpress uses get_template_part. To me that seemed the correct way or appending one page to another, without adding the whole page code. Is it bad practice? There aren't apparently any js error in the console: the test page is agendadelvolo.info/office (it's ugly because header/footer are included, but the problem is in the address data under the map). – Criss Sep 21 '15 at 7:30
  • I'm stuck on this, can anyone give me more help? – Criss Sep 22 '15 at 7:11
  • Can you share your login details? Also what is your website URL? – Rituparna sonowal Sep 23 '15 at 16:23
  • Please understand I cannot share FTP as my client wouldn't like to change his password again. Can you help me just from the outside? What I need to do is insert this page: agendadelvolo.info/info-point into this one: agendadelvolo.info/office which is currently showing the childtheme page with get_template_part in it (included header and footer). – Criss Sep 25 '15 at 7:44
  • Sorry guys, I have had my PC broken for the whole week. Can anyone help me on this issue still a mistery to me? – Criss Oct 2 '15 at 15:06
