Subpage layout

Powerful layout builder in T4 help you build flexible layouts for your website. In Layout setting, we added one more setting called: Subpage Layout.

What is subpage layout?

Subpage layout is the layout to use for subpages. This is to show the issue where user want to use a different layout for the main page and its sub-pages.

Case studies

You have a blog menu with a list of blog articles on the page. In this case, the Blog menu is the main page and blog detail pages are a sub-page of blog menu. Now, you want to have masthead and left sidebar in the main page but not in sub-pages. To do this, you will need to use a different layout for main page and sub-pages:

Solution is ... subpage layout feature

The best solution is using a different layout for the main page and sub-page and this feature is not supported by Joomla default. So we added the subpage layout feature where user can assign different layout for sub-pages.
