Brightspot CMS User Guide

Creating a role-level content template


You can associate content templates with a role. When an editor associated with the role creates a new item based on the content type, Brightspot populates the content edit form with the associated content template’s text.

To create a content template at the role level:

  1. Prepare a content template as described in Creating content templates.
  2. If necessary, create a new role as described in Creating roles.
  3. Click menu > Admin > Users & Roles.
  4. Under Roles, select the role for which you want to create a content template; the Edit Tool Role widget appears.
  5. Toward the right of the widget, click more_horiz > CMS.
  6. Expand Content Templates.
