The Page Template (PT) defines the overall layout of a page. It is in fact a master page which defines the header, footer and navigation on a particular page type. It also defines where Component Presentations are placed on the page. The picture belows shows what is defined in the Page Template
In addition it defines:
- The HTML header (<title>, <meta>etc)
- File extension of the page (asp, jsp xml, xslt etc.)
The page template is used in the static publishing model only.
