Web Templates and the Template Browser

Save your creations as templates using the Template Browser.

Once you’ve dialed in your settings for a web engine, those settings may be saved as a template via the Template Browser. Saved templates may then be recalled at a later time for further work, or to be applied to a new set of images.

To create a new template, click the plus icon (+), give the template a name and choose a folder in which to file it.

To update an existing template, right-click the template name — or Ctrl-click it if on a Mac — and select “Update with Current Settings” from the menu:

Templates are bound to a web engine; when a template is selected, the associated web engine will be loaded and your custom settings will be dialed into the controls. Without the associated web engine installed, a template is useless.

Templates may be imported or exported from within the Web module by right-clicking within the Template Browser, or may be installed manually.

With a bit of simple hacking, settings saved in a template may be ported over to another web engine. This is useful for TTG web engines, as page layouts are intentionally duplicated in different engines (so that your website may have a consistent look and feel), and can save you a lot of time designing your pages and galleries.
