Let’s get started 🚀

Creating Shared Template

InstaWP allows you to create a new shared template through any of the following two methods:

Method 1

Step 1: Sign In to your InstaWP account and you will navigate to its dashboard.

Step 2: Click on the Templates button from the top navigation bar.

This will take to the templates page.

Step 3: Click on the Add Template + button from the top right corner of the interface._

A new modal window will appear, allowing you to choose an existing site from which to create your new shared template.

Step 4: After selecting the site as a new shared template, click on the Next button.

You will now be prompted to save the template by filling out the following fields:

Template NameName of the template
DescriptionDescription of the template
Template TypeSelect Shared template that can be shared online with a URL.
Instant TemplateWhen you create a new site from the template, it takes about 5-7 secs of time, selecting this option will instantly create a new site. Only available for premium accounts.

Step 5: After entering the values, click on the Save button.

Then, you will see a success message on your screen.

Method 2

Go to the Staging page and follow the steps as demonstrated in “Method 2” for creating a template. For more information please refer to the Create Template document.

Then, simply toggle the shared button as displayed on the “Template Type” field.

Then, click on the Save button.

Then, you will see a success message on your screen.

Note: Once you've created your template, you can delete the parent site from which you choose to generate it.

Template Landing Page

InstaWP gives you access to the Template Landing Page, which is visible to people who have shared your template link. Anyone with internet access can visit this link.

Note: If the user is using premium themes or plugins on some of their templates, they must purchase a multi-site licence from the plugin vendor in order to transfer it to other users who create sites using your shared template.

To access the Template Landing Page, you can follow the below steps:

Step 1: Go to the Template Page.

Step 2: Click on the Copy link button corresponding to the shared template for which you want to access the landing page.

Step 3: Paste the copied link into the new tab or in Incognito mode.

This entire page displays your shared template details (logo, appearance, sending credentials to email or not, privacy policy, etc.) that can be customised.

For more information, please refer to the Shared Template: Branding & Advance Options document.
