Templates

Page Builder templates are containers that save both content and layouts of existing pages, blocks, dynamic blocks, product attributes, and category descriptions. Using templates saves you a lot of time and effort when creating new content (or replacing older content). For example, you can save your existing Page Builder content as a template and then apply that template (with all its content and layouts) to another area to quickly create new Page Builder content.

Save content as a template

To save your existing Page Builder content as a template:

  1. Navigate to the Page Builder content you want to save as a template.

  2. In the Page Builder content area, click Save as Template at the top right-hand side.

  3. In the Template Name field of the Save Content as Template dialog, enter a unique name for the template. A unique name is required so that it can be searched, selected, and applied to another content area as needed.

  4. Created For is an optional selector you can use to assign the template to a particular content area so that it can be filtered and more easily found when you want to apply that template later. Assigning the template to a particular content area does not limit its use to that area. You can use any template anywhere that Page Builder content is allowed.

  5. Click Save. A confirmation message appears indicating that your template is saved.

Apply a template

To apply a template to a Page Builder content area (page, block, dynamic block, product attribute, or category description):

  1. Navigate to the content area to which you want to apply the template.

  2. In the content area, click Apply Template at the top right-hand side.

    • the template name (Template Name)
    • the content area (Created For)
