How to create a reusable Content Template

Sometimes when creating content you might find you are adding the same components and structure time and time again. Depending on the size of your site, this repetitive process can be quite time consuming. This is where 'Content Templates' come in!

Content Templates are great, they let you create the structure (including Settings) for a specific page type and then reuse it throughout your website — with the uSkinned Site Builder for Umbraco, this couldn't be easier.

Create a Content Template

Option 1

In the Templates section

Option 2

In the Content section

Step 1

Login to the CMS.

Step 2

In the tree menu on the left-hand side, click to create a new 'Page'.

Step 3

Name your page — you should name it after what you would like the Content Template name to be, for instance, in our example we'll call it 'Team Member Page'.

Add the various components you require, along with their corresponding Settings.

When you're happy, hit 'Save'.

Step 4

In the tree menu, hover over your new 'Page' and right-click on the '...' icon. 

Step 5

From the slide-out panel, click "Create Content Template".

Step 6

That's it. Now when you click to create a 'Page' you will see an additional option to choose between a 'Blank' page or a 'Team Member Page'.
