The normal templates are not visible in site template editor of communities consoles. how do I create a community site template so that I can select it from the drop down(attached screenshot) when I try to create a community site from communities console.

I used that too.  Added Page function in the new template and created the site from it. same result. How can I add header footer components to community site templates.

I am also looking for a way to create new template for AEM Communities . I can see some built in bootstrap based designs when I create the community site and We -Retail design. How can I create another template like this ?
