Understanding theme hierarchy

Using the WordPress hierarchy in Adobe Muse.

What the WordPress hierarchy?

It bring you the possibility to automatize a lot of designs rules into your theme.
– archive will be used for list your post
– single is your design for a single post

How does it work?



You must name the html files like archive.html, your title could be different.

<- see our example

In practice, there is a lot of reserved words that are used for hierarchy.




What are the possibilities?

MTW* hierarchy is based on WordPress, just not use php extention.
Check out next links to understand WordPress hierarchy.

Muse to WordPress added rules:

  1. item
    it is using for grid list that’s assume archive list

  2. language
    not like other hierarchy, language as been added on all hierarchy, to website using several languages.
    it work with plugin like Polylang
  3. $
    This sign is used at the begin of your file name to exclude a Muse page from the synchronize function

Please make ACTUAL tutorials? I’m trying to figure this out, but I’m afraid I’m only becoming more lost. Being able to see how to effectively make updates and get real time (or somewhat timely) assistance would be wonderful.

We need video tuturials. Please make videos with voice overs.

I wasn’t concerned about WordPress at all but clients are insiting on managin their own website.

Another one would be to customise a muse website project for us while we try figure out the scheme of things.

Yes, it´ll be great if you publish a complete video about this important issue. Thank you in advance, i know it means some extra work for you.

Hi, what about something like “master page” design? i mean, when you create new site in WP, could it be immediately in master page design like it works in MUSE please?

Great software, help me a lot.. but i have some trouble. I use image as my “browser fill” in adobe muse, and it wont show up after i uploaded it to wordpress, can you help me with this issue?

Yes! Could use a video or any other tutorial on how to add a menu-area and also how to add a widget-area. I love the whole MTW-idea already!!

A complete video is coming soon, first we are working to finish the 1.2 to resolve some little issues and improve some features. Thanks for your patience. 🙂

For now there is no menu widget, if you want really a WordPress menu you can use Star Menu https://wordpress.org/plugins/stars-menu/
But that’s useless if you don’t use one Muse page as template for multiple pages in WordPress.
If you create your menu in Muse and use Hyperlink in Muse all links will be update for WP, our own menu on musetowordpress.com is created like that.

Once the pages are converted, why are they in a locked state and all edits need to be done on the Muse side of things. For example, if you need to make a minor adjustment or change padding, you have to do it in Muse and sync the changes. I was also hoping I could use one of my page builders on the converted file. I love the concept, but think this has some more maturing to do.

For the moment MTW was think for let you create a theme as a WordPress theme. In a WordPress theme you can’t modify elements without coding. The goal is to let your client manage the website, if you are conceptor it’s better to save your job in an only way and don’t give access to all and protect your design. But we agree and understand your needs, it’s a recurrent question and we are thinking to find a solution for you.

If you could post a video for a complete WordPress newbie, it would be awesome!
(Sorry about my bad english. I’m just a brazillian guy very exited about MTW)

There are no stupid questions! Let's talk
