    Hello,

    Have you checked out the first video in your documentation’s video series on the overview of how custom layouts work and their purpose? It should help to explain the concept a bit of it all.

    Just going from what you’re describing, this is my understanding — You’re applying a layout to one page, then applying to another and making changes.

    So, I think there is some confusion here on what a custom layout is, exactly. A custom layout is meant to construct the content of a single page. This is not a re-usable layout that can be used from page to page.

    For example, the two pages you reference here both have the same layout “product-pages” attached to it. This means you can expect that any edits you make to the “product-pages” layout is going to display on both pages.

    When you begin a new page, if you want to get going faster and use another layout as a starting point, you can do that. Checkout part 2 of the Layout Builder video series from your docs:

    Or if you want to add a tiny bit of re-usability to a custom layout, and still have one layout applied to both pages, you can incorporate the content of the current page into that layout. See part 4 of that series:

    Does this make more sense now?

    Hi Jason

    Thank you for your detailed reply, it has helped a lot. I was racking my small brain yesterday and all night why it was happening as I have used this theme before and love it. However I didn’t use the custom layout before I built the entire website in the visual and text editor and that is where I was going wrong with this one. The layout option is so much better now I know what I am doing, thanks a lot.

    Just to not again this is a fab theme and as I said I have used before and will use again. I also must take a look at our portfolio of other theme. Always a great service with you guys and that goes a long way, thanks to you all and keep up the great work :o)

    Cheers and have a good day, Alex :o)
