Each page on your website consists of 2 separate parts: the Page Content and the Template.

Your template will define the overall look and feel of your entire website.  A template will be used on multiple pages and specifies how the page content should be presented.  The template remains the same for each page on your website and the page content displayed will change for each webpage.  Example page content could be an image gallery created in the Content Manager or a product page for your SEO-Cart store.  The template may include your site navigation menu, company logo, or other items that are shown of every page of your website.


Page content is highlighted red on the sample webpage above.
The template area is highlighted green on the page.
