Template folders must have a specific format to be detected as template folders. Each template is defined in a separate folder inside the
Templates/CMChannel folder. The folder must contain a
CMSymbol document named "Descriptor" that might contain an additional icon and description for the template. The icon is used as a preview in the template chooser and the description will be shown as the template name in the template chooser.
Each template folder must contain exactly one page document at root level, otherwise the folder will be ignored. If the template consists of several pages, the sub pages should be placed within a subfolder of the template. Editorial content (Article, Images …) that is contained in these folders and is linked by Page templates will be copied to the destination, defined in the Create from Template dialog.
If the name and the description should be internationalized, create an additional
Descriptor document next to the original descriptor and append the locale to the document name,
"Descriptor_de" for the German version, for instance.
