Work with partial designs

To be able to reuse similar layouts for webpage placeholders such as the header, the footer, and main sections of a webpage, you can build partial designs in XM Cloud Pages. Partial designs consist of components, and are later combined with each other to build page designs.

Create a partial design

To create a partial design:

  1. In XM Cloud Pages, on the Templates tab, in the left-hand pane, click Partial designs.

  2. Click Create > Partial design.

  3. In the Create partial design dialog, enter a name for your partial design (for example, footer) and click Create.

  4. Drag the desired component(s) from the left-hand pane to the relevant placeholder: Header, Main or Footer. Your choice of placeholder determines where the partial design will be placed in the page design.

  5. Configure the components as required using the left-hand pane settings.

  6. The partial design is automatically saved. When you have finished making changes, click Close.

The partial design is available in the Partial designs library. You can edit existing partial designs from this library.

Note

Any changes made to an existing partial design are applied to all pages that use it.

Publish a partial design

To use your partial designs in a page, you must publish it from the partial designs builder.

To publish a partial design:

  1. In XM Cloud Pages, on the Templates tab, in the left-hand pane, click Partial designs.

  2. Click Edit next to the partial design you want to publish.

  3. In the partial designs builder, click Publish.
