A template list will be marked in green. Like every product list in LinkDeli, you can preview (1), edit (2) or delete (3) it.

Quick, isn't it?


TIP: A template list can function only as a reference list. You can use it as a base for your new list, but you can't place the code of a template list on your blog. That's why there is no corresponding widget code button on the function bar of these lists. If you want to use a template list exactly as it is on your blog, you should first clone it.
