The page at https://wp.blognomic.com/second-switch-page, if it exists, is known as the Second Switch Page or SSP, and is Gamestate. Its WordPress title shall be “Second Switch Page”.
The SSP shall consist of one or more Elementor Sections and their contents.
No SSP Sections may contain any Columns not authorized by the Ruleset. No SSP Columns may contain any Widgets not authorized by the Ruleset. No Designer, even Admins, may change the settings of SSP Sections or Columns from their default settings, except as explicitly permitted by the Ruleset.
The topmost Section on the SSP shall contain one Column, and that Column shall contain one Title widget, set to display the page’s title.
All other SSP Sections shall collectively be known as the Canvas, and individually known as Canvas Sections.
Only Admins may edit the Canvas, and Admins may only edit it as the Ruleset allows.
All Canvas Sections shall contain between 2 and 4 Columns. All the columns within a Canvas Section must be equally wide, and all together must be the full width of the Section.
All of a Canvas Section’s Columns must contain at least one Widget.
New Widgets being added into empty Columns must follow the following algorithm (depicted here), unless otherwise permitted in the Ruleset:
1. No Widget may be added to an empty Canvas until 2 Widgets are ready to be populated at the same time. (This is implied by the requirements that Canvas Sections must have at least 2 Columns, and that all Columns must have at least one Widget.)
2. The order of Widgets will always be preserved left-to-right then top-to-bottom, in the order that their addition was required or requested.
3. When 2 Widgets are ready to be added, the Admin editing the template will create the first Canvas Section with a two-column layout, then add them.
4. When the 3rd Widget is ready to be added, the Section will have 3 columns.
5. When the 4th Widget is ready, the Section will have 4 columns.
6. When the 5th Widget is ready, the Section will have 3 columns, and a new Section below it will have 2.
7. When the 6th Widget is ready, the older Section and newer Section will both have 3 Columns.
8. When the 7th Widget is ready, the older Section will have 4 Columns and the newer one 3.
9. When the 8th Widget is ready, both older and newer Sections will have 4.
10. When the 9th Widget is ready, the algorithm repeats the pattern started in step 6 above, with the “newer” Section now considered the “older” one, and another new Section created below it.
All Designers may create one regular Elementor Template (not a Theme Builder or Popup template), named “[Playername]’s Template”, where [Playername] is replaced by the Designer’s BlogNomic name. Such templates are known as “Designer Templates”.
After creating their Designer Template, a Designer may make a blog post requesting an Admin to populate it into the Canvas, or, if they are an Admin, announcing that they will do so themselves. No Designer Template may be populated into the Canvas without such a post being made.
Designer Templates are populated into the Canvas by adding an Elementor “Template” Widget to an empty Column, then choosing the Template.
A Designer Template shall have only one Section, containing only one Column, and shall have no Widgets not permitted by the Ruleset. However, the Designer may change any of their Template’s Widgets’ settings — except for Custom CSS, which must remain empty unless otherwise permitted — in any way not forbidden by the Ruleset.
A Designer Template shall have, as its topmost widget, an Elementor “Heading” Widget, whose text must always be the same as the Designer Template’s name. The font size of this heading must be less than or equal to 24 pixels or 1.5 rems.
No part of a Designer Template may ever exceed the bounds of its Column on the Canvas by any method, including but not limited to overly large fonts or relative/absolute positioning. This includes all browser widths; therefore, Designers should test their Templates at all browser widths and make width-specific adjustments as supported by Elementor if need be.
A Designer may edit their Designer Template in any permitted way as a Daily Action.
