On this tab, you can manage template scopes of the currently edited page template. Template scopes define where the page template can be used. You have the following two basic options:
|•||Template can be used on all pages: the use of the page template is not limited and it can be used anywhere|
|•||Template can be used only within following scopes: if selected, the page can be used based on the defined template scopes|
If you choose the second of the options mentioned above, UI controls for managing the scopes will be displayed below the line.
Based on the site selected in the Site drop-down, you can display either site-related scopes or global scopes. Site-related scopes are applied only on the selected site, while the (global scopes) option indicates that the scopes are valid on all sites in the system.
Using the New template scope link, you can create new template scopes. Listed scopes can be Edited () or Deleted ().
Important - template scopes are not a security feature!
Template scopes are not a security feature. They only provide a way to simplify the user experience by not offering too many page templates to the users!
This means that you can limit which page templates will be offered to the users in the page template catalog in a certain location. But when a user creates a page there, they can move it to another location, even to one which is not allowed by the template scope.
