Template Elements

This section controls the shared portions of your website that appear on every page. The Meta/Head, Header, and Footer are all separated out so you can create powerful websites without having to edit dozens of pages to change one link or chunk of text.

Meta / Head:

All websites have shared HTML code that control the title, description, stylesheets, and any javascript files used for the entire site. HTML uses lines of text called “tags”. These tags always exists between “less than” and “greater than” or “carrot” tags. See an example: <tag> </tag>. Also, there is almost always an opening tag <tag> and a closing that uses a backlash to indicate the end </tag>. All meta / head HTML should exists in the <head> tag. By default, OrgSync has supplied you with an example of this code to help you get started.

<title> controls the title of your website as it appears in your browser and bookmarks

<title> My Website Title </title>

<script> allows you to insert javascript files or raw javascript code into your website (link to an article about this)

<script type="text/javascript" src="http://mysite.com/my_js.js" />

<link> allows you to link to a stylesheet containing CSS

<link rel="stylesheet" type="text/css" media="all" href="http://mysite.com/my_css.css" />

Header:

The header section of your website typically includes your logo, top navigation links, and any other content you want repeated on every page of your site. This section should include the opening <body> HTML tag.

Footer:

The footer section of your website typically includes any links, site credits, copyright information, and a link to OrgSync. The closing </body> tag should be included in this section. Just like the HEADER section, this section will repeat on every page of your site.
