Easy Content Templates is a plugin for WordPress that lets you define content templates to quickly apply to new or existing posts and pages. By default, templates are private to the author/creator only. Templates can be shared to other users by checking the “Make this Template available for others” check box. Other users can’t edit your template, they can only use it.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do I create templates?
In your WordPress admin, usually under the Comments section, there will be a Templates section (much like Posts and Pages). Hover over it and click Add New.
How do I insert them into my posts or pages?
In your write screen look to the upper right and there’s a box there. Select a template from the drop-down and click “Load Template”.
Nothing shows up in the drop-down list, what do I do?
First you need to define your templates, go to the Templates section of your WordPress admin and create your templates there.
Can I define multiple templates?
Sure you can! Templates are actually Custom Post Types so you can make a lot of templates.
What does the “Share this Template with others.” check box do?
If you define a template and check that box, it means that you are allowing users to use your template. That is, they will be able to create posts or pages using that template. This does not mean that they will see your template in the administration area or they will be able to edit it.
When I create a post from a template, how do i show the post date?
Just use the [postdate] shortcode, it will display the date the post was published. You can control the output format by using the format parameter like this: [postdate format="M j, Y"] Format options are similar with PHP’s date function.
