The "simple template with variable" page is no longer available. The replacement https://confluence.atlassian.com/doc/create-a-page-from-a-template-296093793.html does show a template, but does not explain how to use it.
I found a description of to make a pulldown here, Marian Finch's answer:
1 Go to the space, select Space Tools, Content Tools, Edit your Template or make a new one
2 In the menu bar choose "insert template items" (left of "insert macro)
3 Assign a name to your variable. If it doesn't show up as a green block, try again. Repeat until your variable is listed in "insert template items".
4 Click the green block and hover your mouse over it.

Do you have any suggestion, what I can do to accomplish this?
