Organize templates in categories

This article is for administrators of the classic Google Sites (no “Publish” button at the top right). Get help for administrators of the new Google Sites.

Create Categories

As an administrator, you can create categories in your domain's Template gallery for organizing templates added to your domain (similar to the categories Google uses in the Public gallery).

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Appsand thenG Suiteand thenSites.
  3. On the Sharing Settings page, click Templates - classic Sites.
  4. In the Categories section, type a category name in the field and click Save. Your category is now listed above the field.  Enter more names to add as many categories as you want.

Your categories appear in your domain's private Template gallery. Also, when users add a template to the gallery, they'll be able to select any two categories to place their template in.

Users can manage the available templates on the Manage Site > Template information page.

Remove categories

To remove a category from your domain's Template gallery, just uncheck it in the Admin console. This doesn't delete any templates currently in the category—they're still in the gallery. They're just not in any category.

  1. Sign in to your Google Admin console.

    Sign in using your administrator account (does not end in @gmail.com).

  2. From the Admin console dashboard, go to Appsand thenG Suiteand thenSites.
  3. On the Sites Settings page, click Templates.
  4. Under Categories, uncheck the category you want to remove and click Save.
