I hope you already know how to create a single post template using AnyWhere Elementor Pro. If not, just go through this article first
Creating Single Post Template using AnyWhere Elementor Pro
In AnyWhere Elementor Pro there are 3 ways to apply a Single Post Template
- Global Template
- Category/Term based Single Post Template
- Individual Single Post Template
This is used when you want to apply a particular Single Post Template to all posts of a specific post type. For this, under “Anywhere Elementor Settings” of the Single Post Template, check the option “Auto Apply”. This will apply the template on all posts of the Post Type selected above.
Use this approach to apply different Single Post Template to your posts depending upon the Post Category or Custom Taxonomy. While adding or editing the Category, Tag, or Term ( Custom Taxonomy ), defining a single post template is an option. Just select the appropriate template, and it will be applied to all posts under that term.

This option is very useful when you want to select the template for each post individually. You get the option right from the Post edit screen to choose the template for that post. It is handy if you want the author to decide the template just when writing the post. Look for the section “AE Post Template” and select the template you want to apply on the post edit screen. The placement of this option might differ depending upon whether you are using Gutenberg editor or Classic editor. Check screenshots below for reference.

There might be a case where you have a Global template that you want to apply on each post, but you also want to override the template for a post from a particular category or for a specific post. It is important to understand the template priority in such a case. Post Template assigned on Individual Post takes the highest priority, while Global Templates take less of a priority.
