Are you finding it challenging to quickly create and deliver experiences with Adobe Experience Manager? Get early access! | Full Details Here.
Are you writing the same code and configuring the same page templates over and over again to initialize each site implementation? Do you wish you had a better starting point to enable faster go-lives?
If so, we have good news for you. In addition to the plethora of out-of-the-box tools that are already available in Adobe Experience Manager Sites, we are soon introducing new functionality that gives you a quick and easy starting point for any Adobe Experience Manager Sites implementation. With our new site template functionality, you can easily build and import templated experiences that allow you to reduce time spent on development and get you to populating content and styling immediately.
Get early access and try this new beta functionality out in ourCreate Your Own Site Template Contest, a no-risk way to practice building your own site template before the functionality is officially released later this year.
We’ll provide a few sample wireframes for inspiration. Your job is to create a full site template – which includes both the component and page template designs of your site as well as the accompanying front-end code. Use your creativity to design and build a site template that you believe would be a useful starting point for a variety of implementation projects. You can learn about site templates and how to build themhere.
