UXi has five different types of published content:

Pages
Posts
Media (used when an uploaded content image is set to link to attachment page.)
Testimonials
Locations (if the UXi Location add-on is active)


The Layout Application tool is used to update the layout used by ALL instances of a specific type of published content (post, page, media, location, or testimonial) The tool is broken down into two separate features: Default Single Layout Application and Bulk Layout Application



Default Single Layout Application

This will assign a specified layout to all newly created singles for the specified post type(s). Think of this feature like setting a new default layout for any page/post/etc created in the future.


Updating the Default Layouts for content published in the future

  1. Next to the content type you wish to update, select an existing layout form the select box to apply.
  2. Click Apply Layouts to apply the change.


Bulk Layout Application

This will update the layout for all singles of the specified post type(s). Think of this feature like setting the layout for all existing pages/posts/etc.

Bulk-Apply New Layouts for content already published

  1. Selecting an existing layout form the select box next to the content type to select which layout will be used.
  2. Check 'Update' to confirm your selection.
  3. Click Apply Layouts to apply the change.


In the example above, all posts are being re-set to use a layout called 'Custom Blog Page'
