I've currently setup a multilingual multisite. But one page isn't picking up the parents page template.

Working: http://www.jeroenbrugman.com/contact

Not working: http://www.jeroenbrugman.com/en/contact

All the other pages are setup up the exact same way, and they do use the parents page template. However, the contact page doesn't....

    Can you provide some background as to how you've implemented this? Are you using a multilingual plugin? If so which one? Pages don't inherit page templates, if you're expecting all subpages to have the same template when you set a pages template, then you're mistaken

  • I setup a multisite using wordpress's built in part .com is my main site (dutch) and .com/en/ is my subsite (english). I used NSCloner to clone all pages to the subsite. And everything worked immediately except for the contact page. Nov 28, 2015 at 15:00
  • If that is the only page not working can't you manually set the template?

  • I can only set the templates on my main themes pages. Non of my child theme pages. Also. When you change the language from dutch to english and you refresh on home. The page turns blank? Nov 28, 2015 at 15:05

I fixed the problem by adding my parent's index,page, and header.php to my child theme's folder.

If you're not able to change the blog page template. Remove the page from the Settings > Reading, change the template and select your blog post again.
