Overview 

Web pages are made from Webpage Templates, the "layouts" for a web page.  Inside the various areas of the Webpage Template (Elements) we can locate "Atoms".  Atoms provide the function in that area.  This Help resource overviews Atoms and their use in XPOR web pages.

Guidance

When constructing a Webpage Template you will create a series of "Sections", inside which will be Rows, which can be broken up into "Elements";

 The Build-up of a Template

The XPOR Template Designer will also let you put an "Atom" inside each individual Element.  Atoms are the functions that make things work on your web page, for example a Menu atom, an HTML atom, a Login atom or a Search atom.

Atoms are provided with Configuration Editors.  For example, if you choose to have a Menu Atom on a web page, you will be required to configure it, to work as you require.  This configuration can then be saved back to the Template, such that all subsequent WebPages have the "same" Menu.

There are a large number of different Atom Types at your disposal, listed out below.  Each Atom Type has a dedicated Help resource.

The principal of the web page Template is commonly applied.  And the application of "Atoms" to templates in the manner exaplined above is also applied with other mainstream CMS's.  XPOR enables a step further, where the atoms provided on a template to create a web page may subsequently be swapped out for a different Atom type.

In fact it is also possible to push the changed Atom type in a specific Element, back to the original Webpage Template.  consequently all Web Pages subsequently made with this Webpage Template will have this replacement Atom Type by default.  You can also edit existing Web pages to "Pull" Atom Types / Configurations from a modified Webpage Template.
