I’m making a portfolio using a Collection and I want to use a Collection Template but customize some of the projects by adding things or even just changing the background color. Who uses the exact same layout on every single portfolio page? That’s just boring. And not very functional, if like me you want to display a custom Case Study for each client’s very different problems and solutions.
Why can’t I just add a sub-class to a collection template so that only that individual page is affected?
Seems like people have been asking for this for years. I’ve searched numerous terms and looked all through the Forum but it looks like there’s still no easy way to do this.
This solution (from 2016) does it with iframes, which never seems like a stable idea: Multiple Templates for Collections / Custom Pages for Collection Posts
This solution (from 2015) may be promising but @thesergie uses so much jargon in his answer I’m not sure if it does what I’m looking for (I’m not sure what it does at all — what are “dynamic list ranges”?): Customise a template
This solution (from 2017) is similarly confusing: Can I create a custom CMS collection template?
I know this is on the Wishlist and I’ve voted for it, but it’s disheartening that such a basic necessity is more than 3 years in the asking, and we apparently don’t have a fix yet.
