MindTouch has a robust library of templates, but there will be times when creating your own template is necessary.
Creating a template
NOTE: New Page templates will show in the New Page dialog box so a user can create a new page based on the template. For more information, read how to edit a template.
To create a template, perform the following steps:
Navigating to the Templates page
From the navigation bar, click the Site Tools drop-down menu and then select Templates.
Creating a new template
From the Templates page, on the navigation bar, select New Page.
Defining a new template
1. Name the new template.
NOTE: You MUST keep Template: in the page title for it to be considered a template.
2. In the body field, add content.
NOTE: The Rich Text Editor can be used to format the content.
3. Once the template is completed, click Save.
