Brightspot CMS User Guide

Types of content templates

There are two types of content templates:

  • Default template—These templates populate the content edit form for the underlying content type. For example, if you have a default template for articles, when you create a new article, Brightspot automatically populates the fields using the template.
  • Extra template—These templates are replications of an underlying content type with a different name and with populated fields. For example, you can create an extra template Urgent Article based on articles, and populate the new template’s fields with text. You can then create a new item of type Urgent Article from the Quick Start widget, and Brightspot populates the content edit form with the template’s values.
