Site Builder is an application that can be used to create site templates or section templates for use with IBM® WebSphere®. This guide contains the steps required to create a section using the Site Builder.

Creating the content structure

First, you need to create the content structure of your section template. For example, a "News" section could be re-usable in many sites. You need to create the Site areas, content, and components structure needed by your section.



This content will be copied into the site where we want to insert the "News" section.

Create the Page Template.

We need to create the Page Template inside the Page Templates label in the Manage Pages section.


  • On "Content Section" be sure the Content associated is the content of your page template.

Setting the Page Layout

In order to change the page layout inside the Portal Administration, you can use the Site toolbar to make the change easier:

  • To make this, enter to Portal User Interface > Page Templates.
  • Then open the Site toolbar and open the page settings of your page template.

Create the Section Template

Open "Site Builder" in the "Applications" drop-down menu.


If you want to customize the Site Experience you can make the changes. If everything is ok, click on "Save as Draft" to save the changes or "Publish and Close" to publish the new section template. 

Insert a Section using the Site Builder

Open "Site Builder" in the "Applications" drop-down menu.
