BlueSpicePageTemplates offers creating new pages using predefined templates to set basic page structure.

Usage / Features

  • Create a template (with Headers, Categories, Boxes e.a.) in the template namespace.
  • Create a page template using the special page (Global actions - Administration - Page templates) to give the page template a name and a description.
  • Each template should be assigned a template from the "Templates" namespace that represents the structure of a document.
  • Page templates can be assigned to a particular namespace, so that a certain template will only appear when creating pages in that namespace.
  • The page template will be displayed in a menu, if a new page ist to be created.
