Content templates

With content templates, you can boost your productivity by pre-populating the content edit form with boilerplate text.

Content template for an article

Referring to the previous illustration, when an editor opens the content template—

  1. Brightspot displays the content edit form for articles.
  2. The Headline field is populated with the phrase Feature review:.
  3. The Subheadline field is populated with the phrase Introducing another Brightspot productivity feature:.
  4. The Authors field is populated with Adam Braun.

Using content templates provides two benefits:

  • Consistency—Your assets acquire a consistent wording that your visitors expect.
  • Productivity—Because Brightspot pre-populates the content edit form with template text, you spend less time typing and more time creating.
