Organizing Editable Templates in Folders.

Avatar

Is there a way to organize editable templates in folders? We have other 25 editable templates, and it's really becoming hard to navigate. Is there namespacing for editable templates in folders?

Hello @AEMWizard -

  • By default, all the templates in the template wizard are alphabetically ordered and so does the template folders.
  • Additionally, you can always interchangeably switch between list/card view available in the template wizard for better view in case of too many template(s) as you mentioned above.

Yes, it is possible to organize editable templates into folders in AEM. Here's how you can do it:

  1. Open the AEM Web Console by navigating to http://localhost:4502/system/console/configMgr in your web browser.

  2. Find the "Adobe Granite Repository Service" configuration and click the "Edit" button.

  3. In the "Editable Templates Node Name" field, add the name of the node where you want to store your editable templates. For example, you can use "etc/designs/myproject/templates".

  4. Click the "Save" button to save your changes.

  5. Navigate to the "CRXDE Lite" tool by clicking the "Tools" dropdown in the AEM navigation bar and selecting "CRXDE Lite".

  6. In CRXDE Lite, navigate to the node you specified in step 3. For example, you can navigate to "/etc/designs/myproject/templates".

  7. Create a new folder by right-clicking on the node and selecting "Create" > "Folder". Give the folder a name that makes sense for the type of editable templates you will store inside it.

  8. Repeat step 7 for each folder you want to create.

  9. To create an editable template inside a folder, right-click on the folder and select "Create" > "Page". Choose "Editable Template" as the page template.

  10. Name the editable template and configure it as needed.

By organizing your editable templates into folders, you can make it easier to navigate and manage them. Namespacing can also help prevent naming conflicts between templates.
