Creating a story from a template

Creating a Story template in Inception

Stories of different types (news, sports, fashion and so on) require different components and may need different styling. By setting up a template for each type of story, stories can be created quickly and efficiently.

Example: In its simplest form, you can create a template that contains an Author component showing your photo, name and Web site. This way you don't have to add that information each time you create a new story.

Tip: Story templates are especially effective when making use of Brands: a dedicated environment containing its own users, Stories, Story templates, styling and Publication Channels. For more information, see Setting up Brands in Inception.
