Templates control the look and feel of your Newscoop publication. Each publication has a unique set of templates created by your web developer, which should have already been installed by your system administrator. The Newscoop administration interface includes a template management and editing tool, which you can find by clicking Configure on the main navigation menu, then Templates.
Templates are organized into folders, shown in a box on the left hand side of the page.
Clicking on the name of a folder shows the files included in that template.
In turn, clicking on a file name opens that file in the template editor. This feature enables web developers to make quick changes to templates on a running Newscoop system.
You should only make changes to the templates if you know what you are doing, because any modifications will have an immediate impact on the appearance of your publication. This feature is also useful for editing templates on a development server before they are copied to the publication's production server.
