Learn how AEM site templates can be used to predefine site structure and initial content and how themes are used to define site style to allow you to quickly create sites.
In order to allow AEM administrators to quickly create sites adapted to business needs, AEM supports creating new sites by using site templates and site themes.
An AEM site template generally contains base site content and structure as well as site styling information, known as the site theme, to get new site started quickly. Templates are powerful because they are reusable as well as customizable. And since you can have multiple templates available in your AEM installation, you have the flexibility to create different sites to meet various business needs.
Because site creation is generally the responsibility of the AEM administrator, please see the administration documentation for more details on customizing site templates and themes.
