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.

Step4 : Now Navigate to /conf/we-retail/settings/wcm/template-types/homepage/structure/jcr:content  update the same rendering component whichever you have given on above. I used the page as rendering component above and I am giving the same here.

Open the we-retail templates (http://localhost:4502/libs/wcm/core/content/sites/templates.html/conf/we-retail)

Now you can try to create the template so that you can see the new template-type as homepage.
