<h1>Template Manager</h1>
<p>Using Template Manager you can&nbsp;view all the installed templates. You can also assign and edit Templates. Templates affect the way your site looks. You have to set one as the default. You can assign other templates to Menu Items/pages you choose. That way, you can change if you wish, the way your site looks, based on the context.</p>
<h3><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Toolbar</span></h3><p>Select a template by checking the radio button next to its name.<br /><br /><strong>Default</strong>: Assigns this default template to all Menu Items/pages. That will be the main template. It will be used, unless it is overridden by an assigned template.<br /><br /><strong>Assign</strong>: Opens a page where you can assign this template to specific Menu Items/pages. This will override the default template for the pages chosen. If you choose 'None', it will act the same way as the 'Default' parameter. <br />This function is not available for Administrator templates.<br /><br /><strong>NOTE</strong>: Both the assigned and the default template will get overridden by the Template Chooser module in the Frontend, if used. Any template displayed on this list will show in the Template Chooser module.<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>New</strong>: Lets upload/install a new template to your site.<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Edit HTML</strong>: Lets edit the templates/the-template-chosen/index.php file. This is the file loaded in the FrontEnd when a user opens your site.<br /><br /><strong>Edit CSS</strong>: Lets edit the templates/the-template-chosen/css/template_css.css file which contains the CSS classes definitions for this specific template<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Delete</strong>: Lets you delete a template. You will be asked to confirm the delete operation. Select 'Yes' to delete or 'No' to cancel. The template will be&nbsp;permanently deleted from the database.</p><p><strong>Help</strong>: Shows this Help Screen.<br />&nbsp;<br />The Administrator Templates can be choosen by clicking the &quot;Default&quot; icon. Administrator Templates are not assignable to any pages.</p><h3><span style="FONT-WEIGHT: bold">Table Columns</span></h3><p><strong>Name</strong>: This is the name of the template. If you mouseover this name -and the 'Preview template' on top right of the list is checked-, a preview of the template is displayed.<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Default</strong>: This is the template that is currently published as the site template (only one can be published at a time).<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Assigned</strong>: This tells us whether the template is dynamically assigned to one of the pages on the site.<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Version</strong>: This is the template version.<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Date</strong>: This is the creation date of the template.<br />&nbsp;<br /><strong>Author URL</strong>: A URL provided by the author.<br />&nbsp;<br /><br /></p></body>
