I’ve had my eye on Blueprints for a while, but I didn’t have the right site for it until my most recent project. v2.0 looks like it will be great for what I need!

I installed it today on a local dev site and set up two sample page layouts with thumbnails (155px x 180px PNG). I’ve got the Blueprints settings set to Mode: Advanced, Carousel: Yes, Detailed Visibility: Yes. I’ve placed the Structure Template field on the main ‘Publish’ tab.

I’m running into the following issues:

1. When I add a page in Structure, it pulls up the Page Layout that corresponds to my Basic Page template (set as the default template for this channel in Structure). At this point, the Structure Template field does not show any thumbnails or template options. When I click to another tab and then back to the Publish tab, the list of templates shows up correctly in the Structure Template field. I am then able to select the alternate template and Load Layout works properly.

2. That is, unless I have thumbnails set. When I click to another tab and then back to the Publish tab, I get a vertical list of templates and thumbnails, but they are not selectable, and there is no Load Layout button. (see attached screenshot)

3. In instance 1 (without thumbnails), when I choose a new template and Load Layout, the Structure Template field again appears empty until I click to another tab and back.

I think what I’m experiencing boils down to two separate issues:

A. Blueprints doesn’t seem to work well when the Structure Template field is placed on the initial Publish tab. (When I keep it on the Structure tab, I don’t experience the empty field state.)

B. When I add thumbnails, they seem to break the carousel and render the field unusable. (This is true even when the Structure Template field is on the Structure tab.)

I can keep developing the site with the field on the Structure tab and without using thumbnails, but I thought I should let you know that the new version doesn’t seem to be working as smoothly for me as it should be. Please advise if you have any suggestions for how I might get this working properly. I’m on a local version at the moment, but if you needed me to get the site running elsewhere so you could log in, I could probably do that.
