A Simple TextPattern Tutorial
Part 1 – Modify the default page template

This is a simple TextPattern tutorial, focusing on the presentation tab. You should already have the program installed and working. You will need your ftp program later in the tutorial. This tutorial is running on version g119 (June 2004).

1. Using the tabs at the top, click on “presentation”, then click on
“pages” in the secondary tabs.

2. Make sure the screen says “You are editing page template default”.

3. Now we are going to make two changes, so you will be able to see which page template you are using (step 4) and to make links to your content titles (step 5).

4. Find the language
<!-- head -->
<div id="head">
Right underneath those lines, type this phrase:
Using Default Page Template

5. Find the language
<!-- left -->
<div id="left>
Right underneath those lines, type this phrase:
<txp:recent_articles />

6. Click the ‘Save’ button to save your changes to the default template.

Done? Great!
Let’s go on to Tutorial – Part 2
