CREATING SITE TEMPLATES
Liferay 6.2 allows users to add their own site template and to use that template for their sites. To add a new site template, click on the “Site Templates” link in the Liferay Control Panel.
Clicking on the “Site Templates” link will display the list of all available site templates .An “Add” option is provided in the same page. Click on the “Add” button and it will give a form in which the site’s name, description and some other information can be entered and saved.
The field “Name” is mandatory. For keeping the site template active, check “Active”. For allowing administrator to modify the site template pages associated with it, check that option too.
After entering the data, click on “Save” button. Now the new site template is created and will be redirected to the site template settings page, where the settings of the site template can be edited. Now go to the Control Panel and click in “Site Templates” which will display the list of available site templates including the newly created site template.
Now add a new site and will be getting the options including the new site template. The new site will get reflected with the site templates pages and contents added with it.
