Template Customization

Zesty uses the Parsley templating language for constructing the views of your site. From the main menu tabs select "Code Editor". You should see a template file for each of your pages.

With Zesty the main entry point for any site is the loader template. This makes for a great location to add global elements. For example; a site wrap element, global navigation, global includes, etc...

We want to add a containing element for styling purposes and global navigation. Your resulting loader template should look something like this.


{{navigation}} {{current_view}}


If you still have your Live Preview open, once you save (CMD + s), you should see your page update.
