Remote Templates

Remote templates is another unique Bricks feature that lets you browse and insert templates of another Bricks installation. No more exporting templates from one site and then importing them on another site.

Public access to your templates is disabled by default. But you can enable it in any way you want by following the steps below.

Step 1: Enable My Templates Access

First, you have to enable template access on the site whose templates you want to browse and insert.

In your WordPress dashboard go to Bricks > Settings > Templates and enable the My Templates Access checkbox. With this setting enabled your template library is accessible to anyone who knows about your site URL.

I highly recommend you restrict access by whitelisting URLs and/or password protection:

Use the Whitelist URLs setting to provide template access only to the specified URLs.

Set a password under Password Protection to restrict template access to those who have the correct password.

Step 2: Remote Templates Settings

Log into the site that you want to browse and insert templates from.

Go to Bricks > Settings > Templates and paste the URL of the Bricks site you want to retrieve templates from into the Remote Templates URL field.

If you’ve set password protection on the other website, make sure to enter the password under Remote Templates Password.

Then click Save Settings, fire up the builder, and open the Template Library. Instead of Community Templates, you should now see a Remote Templates tab like this with all the templates of the remote site:
