22 22  Precisely, an Authoring Template is a prototype document used to create other specific instances of documents of the same type, along with a method of exposing the creation process to the user: the properties edit form. Remember that a XWiki Document can contain objects and this is the case of an authoring template: it is a XWiki Document with an empty object of a specific class, which is duplicated to create more and more documents based on that model, using the data inserted by the user in the editing form as specific values for the particular object instance in the current copy.

24 -The Page Design Sheet is like a style sheet that defines each document will look when it is rendered. Even though the unique object instances will have different values for their properties, they will always have a consistent presentation display because they will be rendered through the Page Design Sheet. The XWiki API available in scripting languages provides a mechanism that will help us use the same sheet for both editing and view modes. We will see how we can achieve this once we get to the FAQ Design Sheet section.

27 27  
28 28  Five pages have been developed which collectively make up a Class Editor Wizard application that can assist you in this process. Your first task is to see if you have these pages in your XWiki already. If so, you'll make a link to the wizard app so that you can always access it easily from an administrative page. If you do not have all five pages of the wizard, you'll need to make the missing pages using code provided by this tutorial.
