Front-end developers have complete markup control
The most common approach to ensuring the same "look and feel" of pages across a website or even multiple website is, of course, use of page templates.
When you create a page in Orckestra CMS, you can choose between page templates available on the website.
You can create and edit the page templates from the Layout perspective. The template usually:
- lays out parts of the page
- styles the page
- adds some behavior to the page
~/Frontend. They are then linked to, and used, in the page templates.
In Orckestra CMS, you can use different technologies to create page layout templates:
- ASP.NET Razor
- ASP.NET Master Pages
To the end user of templates (for example, a content writer who edits a page), these technologies are transparent.
In this section you will find information about creating and using page layout templates in Orckestra CMS using these technologies (ASP.NET Razor, ASP.NET Master Pages, XML/XHTML).
You will also "dive" into working with markup of templates as well as learn about creating and using page template features.
In addition, you will learn how to create page types as well as how to localize different parts of your website.
