Blog Templates

Each page within the blog app has its own template to display that page's content.

Where to save template files

Template files will go in a folder that has the same name as the app instance key. For example, if the blog app instance key is "blog" then you would put all of your template files within the blog folder inside the templates folder.

If your theme was called "Custom" then this would be an example folder structure:

  • themes
    • custom
      • theme.json
      • templates
        • home.twig
        • one-column.twig
        • two-column.twig
        • blog
          • archive.twig
          • categories.twig
          • category.twig
          • home.twig
          • post.twig
          • posts.twig
          • tag.twig
          • tags.twig
