Presentation templates

Presentation templates determine the structure of each web page in your site and which elements and components are displayed on each page.

Presentation templates allow you to change the look of a page without having to update what is being displayed on a page. For example, a presentation template that displays a menu on one side of a page can be changed to place it on the other side without having to rebuild the menu. All web pages based on the same presentation template are changed.

There is little difference between building a presentation template and using HTML to build a web page. It may even be helpful to build a "mock-up" of the page you are designing in HTML before creating a new presentation template. Simply replace the different sections of your web page with references to elements using web content tags.

You need to create a separate presentation template for each page type in your site.
