How To Create a Template

In this tutorial you will learn how to create a template and open the template to load in the editor.

WARNING: To create your own templates use only regular templates, do not use any of the Dynamic templates, the ones with the golden crown icon.

1. Selecting a Project to Convert to a Template

Once you have finished creating a PDF for your blog post or website you may want to save the styles, cover images, etc. as a template for branding purposes. In the dashboard of Designrr locate the project you want to create into a template. Hover your mouse over the cover and click on the three dots to open the menu. Click on 'Convert.

2. Naming the Template

Once you have clicked on 'Convert', a pop up will appear asking you to name your template. Make the name memorable so that you can easily locate the correct template for future projects. If it is branding for a certain blog you may want to call it by the blogs name.

Click on 'Create'. At this point your new template is ready.

3. Selecting the Template

To select the new template follow the same steps that you normally would when selecting a template. Click on the 'Create a New Project' button and then either enter a URL for a project or import content manually. Then click 'Next'. You will then automatically be taken to the templates gallery where you can choose a template. Your new template will be found inside the gallery. Navigate to the template with the name that you have given and click on the thumbnail. You will then be prompted to give the project a name. Once you've done that your template, plus the selected URL will load in the editor.

If you want to create a project without content (meaning that you do not want to add a URL or import content manually) then click on the 'Start From Template' button located in the 'Select Import Option' after you first click on 'Create a New Project'. This will automatically take you to the templates gallery again where you are able to select your new template and load it into the editor by clicking on the thumbnail.
