What are Templates?

Templates in web development are pre-made web pages or a set of HTML web pages that editors can use to place their content. It’s what defines the markup on your website, and you’re in control of the output.


Templates in Umbraco

Templates in Umbraco CMS are built on the concept of Razor views from ASP.NET MVC. What makes templating in Umbraco different is model data.
