Insert content template

Content templates eliminate the need to retype or copy and paste frequently used snippets or standardized verbiage onto a page.

First create content templates for any content you reuse frequently, and then insert content templates directly from the Smart Content Editor.

  1. When editing a page, select Elements > Templates.

  3. The content from the template, including formatting, inserts onto the page.

When to use content templates

Content templates are useful for any verbiage or formatting that you use frequently across your content. Content templates apply static pre-defined content and formatting anywhere you place it on a page.

The inserted content does not update dynamically. If you insert a content template on a page and then modify the content template, the modified content will only insert the next time you use that content template.

Content template examples

  • Formatted note or callout - Insert formatted placeholder text and then modify the text as needed on the page.
  • Instructional text - Create templates of standardized verbiage for using your product so it is always described the same way.
  • Custom content - Use content templates to insert global variables or other custom code in a pre-defined manner.
