is there a way for an author to define a layout and save it as a template?

Avatar

Level 6

Usually an author creates a page by selecting a predefined template then drag and drop the components, Instead of predefined template, is there a way for an author to define a layout then save it as a template? Does anyone know if CQ5 provides any utility to achieve this, 

Thanks.

There is a feature called Scaffolding it does something similar, basically you can create a scaffold that defines the component structure for a template and use the same to create a page.

Refer to following link for more details - http://docs.adobe.com/docs/en/cq/5-6-1/wcm/scaffolding.html
