Create a general template in MindTouch

This page applies to:MindTouch (current)

MindTouch comes with a list of default page templates.  Templates can only be created and edited by administrators, authors and editors.

How to create a  template

Step 1: Create your template

  1. From the MindTouch toolbar, select Site tools > Dashboard.


  1. Under Content management, click Template directory.

  1. From the MindTouch toolbar, select New.


For ease of template management, we recommend creating a blank template named Template:<Your Company Name> under which to create your template groups and templates. In the above list, for example, the pages Template:Custom and Views are blank templates that help organize our templates.

Step 2: Name your template

  1. Give your page template a name.
  2. Add your template content (i.e. formatted headers, text, author instructions, etc.) and click Save.


Do not make changes to any of the templates in the /Template:MindTouch hierarchy. MindTouch templates are overwritten weekly and any changes made to templates in that hierarchy are unsupported and may break your site.

Step 3:  Call to your newly created Template within the Site

  1. Navigate to the desired page where you will call to your template.
  2. Open a red DekiScript block on the page where you would like the contents of the template to appear and call to the template using DekiScript:

    Example: template('Custom/Views/My_Template');
