Linking a template to a lesson page

SmartBuilder v3 or v4?

Please note that this is the help site for SmartBuilder version 3.

The SmartBuilder version 4 Documentation and Video Tutorials can be found in the Help menu in the tool, or view the v4 Help site.

Linked templates by default are locked down to prevent changes made on the applied template.  If you want to make changes to the tempalte itself, you will have to edit it directly (not as part of the lesson).

Changes made to a template, once published, will propegate out to all the lessons and pages that are using that template and are still in Work In Progress.

However, you can unlink individual parts of the template, such as the Value of a text object in order to change the text that is displayed.  This will allow you to customize the template to the specific instance used on this particular page of the lesson.

An example might be a Master Page that is used in multiple lessons.  You would want to keep the core functionality the same and consistent, while making only minor cutomizations for each lesson where the template is used.

If not sure if you need a linked template or a regular template, choose the regular template.
