Working with templates

While setting up your Ektron website, you create templates for your Web pages. A template typically includes page headers, footers, and placeholders for content, forms, summaries, and other page elements; a place to display content items from content lists, menus, collectionA list of Ektron content links for display on a Web page.s, and so on through hyperlinks.

The following image shows a template where the top of the screen contains headers that appear on several pages. This image also shows that, when a user selects the Email hyperlink, content item (ID 87) displays within the contactinformation.aspx template. A developer can modify content within these areas.
