Creating Page Templates

For new page templates, you must select a parent template, which defines the general structure and configuration parameters. You are prompted to select a parent directly in the New Page Template dialog.
Note: The "first-level" templates, which are available upon system initialization, are representations of the available page variant types.

To create a new page template:

  1. Select the management context from the context selection box, then select Content | Page Templates.
    This opens the Page Templates tree view.
  2. Click New.
    The New Page Template dialog is displayed.
  3. Specify a name for the new page template.
    If necessary, modify the automatically generated ID.
  4. Select a parent page template.
    Clicking the File Select button opens the page template tree view for selecting the intended page template.
  5. Click Apply.
    This creates the new page template and opens it in the page template detail view, ready for editing, see Editing Page Templates.
