Zones and Templates

To integrate content or services, your page must be a Page with template.

A template is a model applicable to a page. It defines thegraphic appearance of your page and has a certain number of editable zones (delimited by dashes).

The templates available for each of your pages depend on the possibilities offered by your graphic charter.
In the demo version ofAmetys, you have a default template named Page.

A template has at least one editable zone. You can then integrate content or a service within it.
