Brightspot CMS User Guide

Bulk editing content templates

If multiple content templates exist for the same content type (such as article), you can bulk edit these content templates at one time.

To bulk edit multiple content templates:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Content Templates.
  2. Click search in the Content Templates widget in the left navigation bar to open the content templates search panel.

    You can use the search filters to pare down the list to only those content templates you are looking for.

  4. Select the content templates you want to edit.
  5. Click more_horiz in the upper-right corner of the search panel and select Bulk Edit.

    Select content templates and click Bulk Edit
  6. From the Bulk Edit pop-up, make any changes needed to the content templates selected. The fields available to change are based on the Template Type you chose.
    Please note that any changes you make on the Bulk Edit pop-up will affect all of the content templates you selected on the search panel.
    In the image below, you can see three content templates had their sites replaced to all be available only on the Brightspot site, and these content templates have been made the default content template for articles on that site.
