Design-Element Templates - Templates Without Data

Warning ⚠️: New Docs Available

These are old docs and we haven't found the time to completely move them. You will find comprehensive new docs on

Introduced in Version 01.00.00

Sometimes you just want to add piece of HTML to your page that will always be the same - like a decorative line. Since you're not adding any data, there is no content-type to choose from. This is where the Design-Element is used.

Examples for this Feature

  1. Decorative separation lines (HR-tag with CSS or images)
  2. Recurring decorative element
  3. An invisible element, which may have an effect on print-page-breaks or similar

Special Use Case for the Content Area

This simple concept is as follows

  1. If you create a template without giving it a content-type, it will have "no content-type"
  2. When a user adds a "Content" module to a page he is offered with a choice of content-types - usually "Simple Content", "Person", etc. 
  3. If there are templates without content-types, the dropdown will also provide a option called "Design Elements"

That's it :)
