Templates are Tettra pages that can be used to create a page with a pre-defined structure.

To access your team's templates, open the menu in the top right and click Templates:

This is your list of templates that your team can use:

Preview
You can click any of the templates to see a quick preview of the page, or click Create Page to create a page from the template.

Default Category
Each of your templates can belong to a category. When a page is created from a template, it will default into its assigned category. To edit the category, edit the template and recategorize it.

Creating and Editing Templates

To create a new template, go to your Template list and click New template

This will launch you into the page editor. The template editor works exactly like the page editor. Any content you create in the template will be preloaded into a new page created from that template.

Once you are finished editing and categorizing the template, click Publish template:

Creating a template from an existing page

To create a new template from an existing page, click the dropdown menu on any page, then click Create template.
