    We are new to the Sitefinity world.  We are trying to understand what the External Templates are and what they are used for?  Are they just additional user controls?  Maybe someone could explain and help straighten us out.

    Hi Andy,

    Thank you for using our services.

    External templates are used when you want to change the appearance of the admin interface or the public part of the website.

    More information about the external templates and new architecture can be found at our TOC

    Kind regards,
