Template Web

Purpose

Template webs were created to act as templates in creating webs. It is now possible to create webs via the ManagingWebs topic. In the not so distant past webs were created by hand. The data directory contains the different webs such as Sandbox and System. A web that begins with an underscore "_" character is considered invisible and a template. All files in the _default (or any other web that begins with an underscore) template web will be copied into your new web. The _default web template contains the following topics: WebHome, WebChanges, WebIndex, WebNotify, WebPreferences, WebSearch and WebTopicList.

Customizing

The web template is useful for administrators to design for creating webs of a certain type. Departmental webs can at least begin with a similar look and feel.

Simply create a web with an underscore for the first character. These can be used by authorized users to create webs from this template.
