Walking the Template Hierarchy

When you are in “Read,” “Edit,” or “Author” mode, the Page and Template Managment menu includes the choice “Template Hierarchy…”, which brings up a large dialog window that

  • lists the templates from which the current page (or template) derives;
  • provides a section that can be expanded to list all pages derived from the current page’s parent template; and,
  • if the current page is itself a template, provides a section that can be expanded to list all pages derived from the current page.

You can navigate to any listed template or page by clicking on the appropriate linked text. By taking this menu choice in a sequence of pages and templates, you can navigate to any page related to the one you started with.
