Page Builder 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 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 of its content and layouts) to another area to quickly create new Page Builder content.

Save content as a template

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

    This can be a page, block, dynamic block, product attribute, or category description.

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

    This displays the Save Content as Template dialog.

  3. For Template Name, 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. If needed, set Created For to assign the template to a particular content area type.

    When you add this assignment, it can be filtered and more easily found when you want to apply that template later. But it 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

You can apply a template to a Page Builder content area (page, block, dynamic block, product attribute, or category description).

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

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