Creating and editing content templates

Updated 1 year ago by Jelena Mikic

Content templates define how quotes and titles from your blog posts are organized and positioned within campaign posts, as well as how links and hashtags are positioned. New lines and emojis are supported as well.

You can access the feature by clicking “Content templates” in the “Settings” menu:

You'll see this window:

Before you start editing templates, it's important to know which building blocks are available:

  1. Blog title - %(title)s
  2. Quote from the blog post - %(quote)s
  3. Twitter handle of the author - @%(og_author_twitter_handle)s
  4. Links - %(link)s
  5. Your own text

It's possible to edit/remove existing content templates and add new ones.  To reveal the edit button click on the dots:

Once the edit/add button are clicked, a popup will appear:

So, you'll basically combining the blocks with your own text.

For example, say we want to create a template that includes "My new blog post is awesome, check it out - blog post title".  We can do this by writing the "My new blog post is awesome, check it out -" first and clicking on the "Insert title" box. Once done, the new template should look like this:

Then, say we want the link to our blog post to be added afterwards, on a separate line. We can add new line characters by pressing Shift+Enter while editing the template:

By default, hashtags will always be added to the end of the content template. If we want our hashtags to be added on a separate line as well, we should end our content template with a new like character:

Finally, lets add some emojis.

Your devices emoji keyboard will work just fine - if you are on a Mac, reveal it via Ctrl+CMD+Space - on a Windows, its the Windows key + . (dot or period key)

Once you are happy with the content template, hit Save and it will be added to the list.

Please note that editing content templates is possible for users on the Business and Agency plans.
