Both out-of-box and custom templates can have one of three different template types: Default, New Page, or Content.
Default - General purpose templates
Default templates enable many site functions including many Branding settings. Default templates are useful when you want to reference a certain component in multiple templates and typically used for more advanced use cases.
Branding Templates control the look of your MindTouch site such as your header and footer, login form, 404 page, and more. Learn more in the MindTouch Branding Guide.
New Page Templates
New Page templates appear in the Add new page dialog. Standard New Page templates in MindTouch include Category, Guide, Topic, How-to, and Reference. You can modify the standard New Page templates or create custom new page templates.
Content templates are snippets of content or code that you can create and then add to any page through the editor.
