Convert to content/template area

If you right-click on a layout in Templates, you will see two additional options:

Convert to content area

A content area is a defined area where the editor can add information. An editor may only make a change in this area of the template.

If the editor is to be able to access areas to work with, the areas must be converted to content areas. Otherwise, everything you do in the template is interpreted as Template content, i.e. content that the editor should not be able to change. To indicate that a specific area is a content area, convert an area to a content area. This area must always be in a layout (in responsive templates, they can also be in a grid row or column). This area will then be accessible to the editor. Right-click on the layout and select "Convert to content area".

Convert to content area

A new view is displayed where there are three content areas created by default: Left column, Centre column and Right column. You can use either of these or create new ones by clicking the Create new link. The content areas should have unique names.

To make it possible to change templates on a webpage, the content area must have the same name in the different templates. Therefore, it is good if, for example, a content area on each template is named Right column.

Convert to template area

In SiteVision, you can build on existing templates. However, in the new template, you cannot change all the areas in the template, only the areas that are marked as a template area. A template area is a defined area where the editor/administrator may continue to develop the template.

If a template does not have a template area, you cannot base other templates on it.

To indicate that a particular area is a template area, convert an area to a template area. This area must always be in a layout (in responsive templates, they can also be in a grid row or column). Right-click on the layout and select "Convert to content area".

Convert to template area

A new view is displayed where there is a template area by default: Template area, You can use this or create a new template area by clicking the Create new link. A new view will appear where you can fill in a name for the new template area.

You cannot use the same template area multiple times on a single template.
