Template Editor

Create and manage page templates without a developer. Power authors can add and pre-configure components like text, images, and responsive grid columns, as well as define which components can be edited by content authors. You can also create email templates that target specific content blocks to specific audiences.

Packaged convenience and simple customization.

Sometimes you want to bake the cake from scratch. But when you’re rushed for time or want something that’s reliably delicious, a mix is what you pick up. Templates, whether they’re for websites, forms or emails, offer similar pre-packaged ease. But all that convenience can come at a cost — templates are usually not that easy to edit or customize. Poor template editors mean you face long production timelines, making it harder to get content in market faster.

The feature lets you customize templates and configure them for ease of use by multiple authors. For instance, you can preconfigure design properties to maintain a consistent look and feel that matches your brand identity. Subsequent stakeholders can then work with the template you’ve created and edited to update pages or send emails.

See what makes it work.

Configure using components

Build a template using components that can anchor both the structure and content of what you want to build. A template for your website, for example, needs to have similar design elements across the pages, which can be specified using clearly defined header and footer components.

A focus on message

Pre-populate specific regions of the website or email, and then lock them. This allows authors to focus on clearly conveying their message, instead of worrying about the additional bells and whistles every time they send a new email campaign or update a website.

Responsive templates

The template editor not only ensures consistency in content and structure every time you create a new one, it makes sure the end product is responsive across all platforms so customers always receive a seamless experience.

Adobe Campaign integration

Streamline emails with the Experience Manager integration for Adobe Campaign. Use Experience Manager Assets to create variations of emails for Campaign, so you can easily turn one email into several versions.
