Creating a Blueprint
A Blueprint is a page template that you can create within the Master area so when you want to create a page, you can select this template to reduce the time it takes and steps made to set up a new page within your site.
For example, if you always use the same Header and Footer Tastic kit across all your pages (for more information on Tastic kits and how they work, see this article), you could create a Blueprint that has these included so that when you create a new page, they're already added to save you time. Or if you always have a Markdown Tastic included on your page, you could create a Blueprint that has this in the Main section.
A Blueprint needs to be created in Master before you can use it across your pages. Follow the steps below to create a Blueprint:
Using a Blueprint
Now you've created a Blueprint, you can now use it when creating a page in Stage. Create a page by clicking New then Create Page. In the dropdown list for Layout you'll now see the name of your Blueprint under the Blueprints header. The Editor will open when you click Save. Here, you'll see that the page is set up just as you created it within your Blueprint. You can now add and remove cells and Tastics as you wish as well as editing any Tastic configurations for the individual page.
Editing a Blueprint
Once you've saved a Blueprint, you can edit it at any time. Just go to Master, click on the name of your Blueprint within the Blueprints column, then click the edit icon on the name of your page within the Assigned Pages column. Then you can edit the cells, Tastics, and Tastic configuration as you'd like to. Preview your page, then click Save, and then Publish Changes.
Note: Any page you've already created with your Blueprint won't update with these changes. A page is created independently from the Blueprint so is not synced in any way once it has been created.
Deleting a Blueprint
To delete a Blueprint, hover on the name of your Blueprint within the Blueprints column and click the trash can icon. This will delete it straight away. As any page using the template was saved and modified separately, it will not affect these pages in any way.
