Page And Partial Templates

Introduction

You can create custom Page and Partial Templates to use as a starting point when adding new content to your customer / member site. Creating templates will speed up the process of adding new information to the site and will help ensure consistent formatting. This can also help reduce the amount of repetition involved in adding multiple pages with similar content. It is worthwhile to invest time and / or money into creating templates since they not only increase efficiency, but also make it easier for you to train others how to add content to your CustomerHub website.

You can create a library of templates for Pages and for Partials. This uses Pages as an example. Once a template is created, it will appear in the template drop down so you can copy it when you create a new Page or Partial.
