IBM Content Template Catalog 4.1

IBM has been hard at work updating their Content Template Catalog (CTC) for WebSphere Portal and Web Content Manager.  CTC is a collection of content templates, pages templates, content, site builder and editing tools that greatly improves the usability of IBM’s Web Content Manager.

In the video shown here, IBM demonstrates the new features available in CTC 4.1  Some of the new features described in the video include:

  • Site content has been added so as you create a site, you can fill it with sample content.
  • Site Builder has been enhanced to create a site in the background, so you can go on to do other things while the site is built and populated
  • Events calendar template that includes a real calendar view of events
  • Landing page navigation template that automatically builds a landing page and includes a summary of each sub-landing page in the site
  • Landing feature page template that uses a much more modern looking page to display featured content and landing page content
  • A Contact Us template that you can use to set up a Contact Us form
  • Section Template is a new concept that allows you to build a section of a site instead of having to create a whole new site or create pages individually

These new additions are making the Content Template Catalog a must have for all WebSphere Portal 8 installations.
