I may have misunderstood about this but....
I have several 'templates' i.e. pages that I want to use as the basis for new pages.
I created my basic page structure and saved the page.
It seems that I can create a template button but to get the content related to the button I have to drag the page into the button config. This means my template page is now a 'child' of the page with the button on it. However, one doesn't see it as a sub-page. I can find it if I search and it does show as a 'child' of the page with the button in the breadcrumb.
This is very inconvenient, I would like all my templates in one place and then referred to on the template button so I can easily find and edit them in one area and not have to find the page with the button. One partial solution may be to create the buttons as sync blocks and they all live in my components library, it doesn't solve the problem really but would make things marginally easier.
Does anyone have any other suggestions?
