Building a Template File

One of the most timesaving tools found in UltraDev 4 is its capability to create customized page templates. By creating a template file and building pages based on that template, you can quickly create pages using a common page layout and elements that are present on every page. In addition, after you have created the pages, you can easily update every page that relies on the template by simply making the changes in the template file. Imagine updating hundreds of Web pages in a matter of minutes.

Templates do have their downside, too. Once you commit to a template, making major changes across your site can be a bit tricky. In addition, because the Head section of any page is dependent on a template, it is not editable; you may encounter difficulties applying Cascading Style Sheets (CSS), dynamic data, or behaviors. However, if you are confident in the page layout you have chosen and want to develop pages that share the same layout, a template may be the right choice.
