Name

TemplateDir — specify common template/fallback "pages" directories

SYNOPSIS

directory_name...

DESCRIPTION

Specify directories containing default pages that are to be looked up if pages are not found in the usual PageDir. This effectively allows keeping pages common for all catalogs in common directories, or — in case of a catalog directive — extending page search outside the catalog's PageDir.

DIRECTIVE TYPE AND DEFAULT VALUE

Global directive,
Catalog directive

EXAMPLES

Example: Setting TemplateDir

TemplateDir /usr/local/interchange/default_pages

Example: Setting TemplateDir to multiple directories

TemplateDir /usr/local/interchange/default_pages /common/pages
