Field types / Templateselect

Note: You are currently reading the documentation for Bolt 2.2. Looking for the documentation for Bolt 5.2 instead?

Allows setting a template to use when rendering a specific record. Will allow the record creator to specify any template in the root folder of the current theme with a file name that does not begin with an underscore. If a specific template is not chosen in the record editor, the record will be rendered with the default template for that ContentType. If a templateselect field is used in a repeater or in templatefields it will not affect which template Bolt uses to render the record, but can still be used by the theme developer in the theme.

Basic Configuration:

            type: templateselect

Example usage in templates:

{{ record.template }}


The field has a few options to change the functionality of the field.

  • filter A glob pattern that decides which templates to show. For example to only match templates that start with the word "pages" you can do this:
            type: templateselect
            filter: 'pages*.twig'
