Radiant Stereotype Extension


An extension by Aissac that adds templating support to Radiant CMS.


  • Define named templates (stereotypes) for Pages;
  • Templates are assigned per-parent Page, making all children have the defined 'stereotype' by their parent;
  • You can specify the new page's parts, filters, layout and page type.


Stereotype Extension has one dependency, the Radiant Custom Fields Extension.

git submodule add git:// vendor/extensions/custom_fields

Because Stereotype Extension keeps the settings in the Radiant::Config table it is highly recommended to install the Settings Extension

git submodule add git:// vendor/extensions/settings

Finally, install the Stereotype Extension

git submodule add git:// vendor/extensions/stereotype


To add stereotypes you need to add fields to the Radiant::Config table. There are three types of settings for each stereotype:

  1. Page Parts (and filters)

The key has to look like: stereotype.<name_of_the_stereotype>.parts and the value body:markdown,sidebar:textile.

  1. Layout

The key has to look like: stereotype.<name_of_the_stereotype>.layout and the value has to be the name of a layout (case sensitive)

  1. Page type

The key should look like: stereotype.<name_of_the_stereotype>.page_type and the value has to be a valid class_name attribute of the Page class. (Examples: ArchivePage, FileNotFoundPage or ArchiveMonthIndexPage)


  1. Add stereotypes as described in the configuration section.

  2. Edit/create a new page that has children and select a stereotype from the dropdown labeled "Stereotype". Child pages added to this page will be created with their attributes set by default to the fields you configured.

  3. ...

  4. Profit!
