Create custom templates to leverage in content or site elements.

Use Default (General Purpose) Templates, one of three template types in MindTouch, to standardize or dynamically control content that appears on other pages.

  1. Navigate to Site Tools > Dashboard > Site Administration > Template Directory.
  2. From the MindTouch toolbar, select New.  
  3. Enter a name for your template in the Title field.
  4. Add your template content ( with desired text and formatting) and click Save.

Use Custom Template

  1. On the page or New Page Template where you want the template reference to appear, open in Edit mode.
  2. From the Editor toolbar, select Style > DekiScript.
  3. In the DekiScript container, enter template('template-URL');. Use the relative URL of the template, which is everything in the URL after /template:.

Any changes to the template will dynamically update on all pages where the template is used.
