Special Templates

This section demonstrates the use of "special" templates. These are templates that are either not available to "normal" editors (because they are used for pages that only exist once per site) or execute some functionality upon the creation of a page. For instance, if you create a Glossary page, it will automatically create subpages for each letter.

A "Glossary" template is used to create a page that aggregates glossary terms. Once an editor opens a new "Glossary" page, it will automatically create sub-pages – one for each letter in the Alphabet. These "Glossary Letter" pages aggregate all Glossary Terms for the letter they represent.

The Glossary page contains a navigation menu for the letters and lists the first available terms for each letter.
