You will see in above image we change the layout of the page. So we just added notes area on the page layout.

let’s jump into the code.


Now we will create file call special-template.php. This file will use to change the page layout. Now the only thing is that we need to specify this template file to the pages which we wanted to change.

You can specify any name for this file as per your requirement.

After you create this file copy and paste index.php file code in this file. and run your site. You will see nothing will happen because we don’t change anything yet. So now we will change index.php file.

Import this code in special-template.php

On the top of the page, we created comment which demonstrates template file. So in the comment specify template name. You can see the template name in the page attribute section.

Now in this file, we added declaimer class and insert notes text on the right side of the page.

So now go to the page which you wanted to change these page layout. On the right side of the screen, you will see the page attribute section. From the page attribute section select template for your page. You can create multiple templates for your website pages.
