Creating a site-level content template

Site-level content templates are available to editors working on a specific site.

To create a site-level content template:

  1. Click menu > Admin > Content Templates.
  2. Under Content Templates, click New Content Template.

  3. In the Name field, type a name for the content template.
  4. If you want the template to apply to specific sites, do the following:
    1. Under Sites, click add_circle_outline.
    2. From the Sites list, select the sites with which you want to associate this content template.
    3. From the Set as default list, select one of the following:
      • Yes—The content template is the default for associated content types for the selected sites.

        Only one default content template should be set per site for a content type. If you specify a second default content template for the same content type (for a site), a warning is displayed. If you save the second default content template, it is ignored, and instead, the existing content template is used for that content type on that site.

      • No—The content template is an extra for the selected sites.

        If you specify the same template as both the default and extra for the same content type on the same site, a warning message is displayed. To correct this issue, either delete the extra version of the same template, or specify another template as the extra template for this content type on this site.

      For the difference between default and extra content templates, see Types of content templates.

    If you do not select any sites, the content template is not available until you associate it with a role or user. For details, see Creating a role-level content template and Creating a user-level content template.

  5. Expand the Template Preview Image field to upload an image of new content template. This image is used in the Content Templates widget to show editors what this template looks like.

    To avoid a preview image in the Content Templates widget, leave the Template Preview Image field set to None.

  6. Enter a description of this template in the Description field, such as the purpose of the template or when to use it. This description is displayed in the Content Templates widget.
  7. From the Template list, select the content type for which you want to create the content template.
  8. In the widgets and fields, enter text and values. When you create a new asset with this content template, Brightspot populates the fields with the text and values.
  9. Click Save.
