This page uses the default.html template and draws its main content from the content.xml file.


Welcome to Contemplate! This page demonstrates the embed tags most commonly used to build a typical site. This is the main content, which is selected based on the values specified for the "main" argument in the config/pages.txt file.

Above and below, we have a menu and a footer that come from the content/misc.html file. Since these are the same on every page of the template, their values don't need to be included into config/pages.txt … they're just hard-coded directly into the template.

To your right are two sidebars. The first is randomly selected from content/sidebars.html, so you can refresh the page to see it change. The second is optional: a conditional tag in the template only displays it if a value is given for it in config/pages.txt.
