Sitebuilder 2.275 - 26th November 2012 - Release notes

Sitebuilder 2.275 was released on 26th November 2012. Highlights from this release include:

Page Templates

A major new piece of functionality based around templated pages and sets of pages has now been released. This functionality allows you to create either a single page as a template, or a set of pages. You could for example create a template based around the standard content for a module, and then create pages from this base template; this also allows you to substitute text on creation of the pages from the template.

To save a page as a template, you must be an editor on the site root. You will then see a new "Save pages as template" icon when you go to Edit section.

The interface for changing the page type when creating a page or editing the properties of an existing page has been completely reworked. This change reflects that many individual page types are, in themselves, simply single-page templates - a slideshow page, for example, is simply a single page template containing a slideshow.

As a site admin, you can see all of the templates that have been created in the current site and set their visibility in the Create Page screen:
