Creating a page template

This topic describes how to create a page template.

Try using page templates to ensure all ISC_Content users create pages that conform to brand standards, or to create a consistent look and feel across your commerce site.

Users assigned the ISC_ContentAdmin role see the Templates menu option on the left side of the Content Management System (CMS).

Click the triangle to the left of the Templates menu option to display all available templates. Click the chevron on the right of the Templates menu option to create a new template.

  1. Go to the CMS, and select Content Tree.
