Default Template

During installation a default page template is created. The default template is fairly basic but allows you to start working with the CMS, you can duplicate the default template or work with it directly to customize it to your needs. Add-on modules are shipped with default CSS files which work with the default template to provide a usable set of examples.

To edit the template, at the dashboard click Elements, then click the folder icon next to Templates, then finally click default. The default template is as follows:

<!DOCTYPE html>
<html lang="[[+sitelang]]">
	<meta charset="utf-8" />
	<title>[[+sitename]] - [[+meta_title]]</title>
	<meta name="viewport" content="width=device-width, initial-scale=1.0" />
	<base href="[[+siteuri]]" />
	[[if &subject=`[[+meta_description]]` &operator=`!empty` &then=`<meta name="description" content="[[+meta_description]]" />`]]
	[[if &subject=`[[+meta_keywords]]` &operator=`!empty` &then=`<meta name="keywords" content="[[+meta_keywords]]" />`]]
	<link href="system/app/chunks/fusion.min.css" rel="stylesheet" type="text/css">
	<!--[if lt IE 9]>
	<script src=",html5shiv"></script>
	<style type="text/css" media="all">
