Why create a story template?

There are over 300 templates available to use in the template gallery. But, if you want to customize a story template specific to the style or theme of your site, you can create your own story template.

Creating templates can help save you time and effort when building future pages. With text style, page design and responsive layouts saved, templates make it easy to quickly iterate and publish content to your site.

How to create a new story template

To create a new story template, open the story you want to save as a template and click on the settings icon on the top right of the editor. Then select the Save As Template option.

A panel on the left side of the editor will appear. Name your story template and select the appropriate category or categories. (A default list of available categories will appear in the dropdown menu.)

Note: "Story" will be pre-selected as your template type. To learn more about creating section templates, visit this page.

Finding and using your template

All of your story templates will be saved and organized along with the pre-built templates in the template gallery. To find and use a story template that you created, open the template gallery on the left side panel and click on the Created tab.

Editing your template

To make changes to a saved template, find and select the template from the template gallery and click on Edit. A new side panel will appear on the left. Click on Edit Template to be re-directed to the original template story. Make your desired changes and click on Update to save.

Removing templates

To delete a saved story template, find and select it from the template gallery. Then click on the Remove option on the top left of the template screenshot. A warning will appear, notifying you that this action cannot be undone. To continue deleting the template, hit Yes, Delete It!
