I just cleaned up a little bit... And along with my sections, I removed the templates that were defined in them.
I still have pages that I could easily use to retrieve my templates, but I don't know how I can do that.
I tried to copy the content from one of those pages into a fresh template. But that didn't work well.
So, my question: can I turn a page into a template?
A little bit like saving Word documents (docx) to Word templates (dotx)...
Copying templates is not a "standard feature" in wikis - some don't even have templates!
I know there's some feature requests open in Atlassian's product development/support Jira over at https://jira.atlassian.com/browse
This site is a place to talk about Atlassian stuff, it's not about product management. Atlassian are active here though, and it's not unusual to find issues raised by Atlassians in their Jira that say "raised because of conversation X over in the community"
If you can't find an appropriate feature logged there to vote on, then go ahead and raise one.
I don't have one bookmarked (my list of things I would like is way too long, and this one, while I'd like it, is well below the top 64, so I'm not paying much attention), but I am sure there are open ones for it.
Please, refer to this link https://support.atlassian.com/confluence-cloud/docs/create-a-template/ in order to create a new template. And then when you create a new page, you will be able to select your own template on the template list.
The way I work around not being able to save a page as a template is to - Copy and rename the page.
You can create the 'template page' and name it Template X (or whatever you want). Then every time you need it, copy it into the needed space, then Edit the Title.
Note: when you first make the copy the page will be listed as "Copy of Template X" but again, just edit the title and it will save just fine.
