Description[edit | edit source]

BlueSpicePageTemplates allows users to create new pages from predefined templates to start with a basic page structure.

Usage / Features[edit | edit source]

  • Create a template (with headers, categories, boxes and other content) in the template namespace.
  • Create a page template using the special page Special_PageTemplatesAdmin give the page template a name and a description.
  • Each template should be assigned a template from the "Template" 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 is shown as a choice when a new page is created.
