Page and Section Layout Templates[edit]

Portal Header[edit]

{{Portal_Header}} - this will list several portals

Portal Templates[edit]

A page/template as an object (holding the data about something, e.g. a learning activity), with sub-page "method" templates to display it:

Text View[edit]

The name is stone , the id is 3 , the weight is 10

(why new line and space to indent?) and the Volume is 11
(why a new line?).

I could have done this:

Property, Value

Name, stone

id, 3

colour, red


Volume, 11

Table View[edit]

Enough to show that there is potential:

Property Value
Name stone
id 3
Weight 10
Volume 11
