Page Templates

When an editor creates a Page in Agility, they must select which template the page will use from a pre-defined list. The user can then add managed content to the page by placing Page Modules in the Content Zones defined by the Page Template.

A Page Template consists of a Name and Content Zones.


The Name should be a friendly representation of what the editor can expect from using the page template. For example, a site may have templates named One Column TemplateTwo Column Template, or Blog Template

Content Zone is an area defined in the CMS on the page template where an editor can add Page Modules. A page template may have one or many Content Zones.

Some digital solutions may only have a single page template that is used throughout, others may have multiple templates to allow for more flexible layouts.


How to Create a Page Template

Sample Page Template

The picture you see below is an example of a website using a Two Column Template that is made up of 2 Content Zones. On the left side, we have one column called Main Content Zone highlighted red, and on the right side, we have another column called Sidebar Content Zone highlighted blue.


Within these content zones, we have several page modules that make up the page. In the Main Content Zone, we have a Jumbotron Module highlighted green and a Rich Text Area Module highlighted cyan. In the Sidebar Content Zone, we have a Post Listing Module highlighted orange.


From within the Agility manager, you can see and control your content zones and page modules from the 'Content' tab. This is the place to edit, add, and delete your page modules.
