Base templates can range from simple to complex, depending on requirements. You can distribute responsibility for template creation and change by making "soft" templates and content objects accessible and modifiable, or you can limit access by hard-coding most functionality in the base template. You can also lock down content objects included in your templates. CommonSpot optimizes page display and executes the base template at publish time to better manage system resources.
- Lightweight foundational HTML-based template architecture makes change management easy.
- Explicitly define as much or as little design and functionality in the base template as you need.
- Advanced options include conditional Header content, template variables, ColdFusion variables, CommonSpot metadata, programmatically setting Body tag and class attributes, and more.
- Built-in controls for template inheritance protect design elements.
