In searching the site I found Post #30075 that refers to making new php files for pages and installing them in the child theme, but I don’t find anything related to posts.
In addition to the traditional post, I want to create a post template that allows me to have an icon on it as well as a place to include a link. I’m not sure which of the following is the better way to proceed: 1) creating a new child paget-post sheet, 2) using a plug-in such as Tool-Set; or can I do both with custom fields?
If it can be done with custom fields and saved as a template so I don’t have to recreate it each time, can you suggest a good tutorial?
My goal is to have a second post template with an icon and a place for source link so I don’t forget it. The idea behind my site is to run a topical clipping service to aggregate topics for the industry.

I am pretty sure you can do that with Custom Field, I did something similar a while back, adding a rating system to each posts.
It would be a lot easier than messing with a child theme a redoing the post template.
There are various plugins allowing you to create custom field and letting you add the custom field setting to the post editing page. The one I used at that time was TypesSeptember 22, 2017 at 18:15 UTC - Views: 11 #51566
Thanks. I have Types as well and have been experimenting with it, so will put my efforts there. I didn’t really want to get in to child theme editing.
