Page Templates

OVERVIEW

Templates offer different layouts for displaying catalog pages. The system supports templates for most catalog pages, enabling you to pick the layouts that work best for your system. Parts-specific catalog pages also support XSL page templates. For those pages, you can customize page display using XSL Stylesheets.

Page Templates control how data is displayed, not what data is displayed.

Example: there are seven template options available for the Product Line List page: one default template and six alternative templates. The default template displays product line search results in a compact row format. The other templates offer alternative formats for the same data. So, if you prefer product line search results to display in column format, you could choose template 5 which offers column-based search results.

ADMINISTRATION

For each catalog page, you can select one template for the production environment and one template for the test environment. The test environment enables full access FullAccess users to preview how templates display data before the template is moved into production. The test environment is a useful way to preview how home page flows appear on the system before external users can see them.

On the Page Templates page, select and click the page name you want to administrate templates for. The Available Templates page for the selected template shows the templates currently in use for production and test purposes.
