Step3 : Now Navigate to /conf/we-retail/settings/wcm/template-types/homepage/initial/jcr:content  here you can give your rendering component path

 

For Example – If I am creating the template-type for the home page then I can give the homepage as a rendering component as per the below.

weretail/components/structure/homepage

But I am using the page as a rendering component. Please see the snapshot below for the reference.
