When we created the HomePage Document type, a template created automatically because we checked the "Create matching template" checkbox. Let’s see how to edit this template. In order to locate and edit the HomePage template we have to expand the Templates node from the Settings section:

If we click on the HomePage template, the template editor will appear on the screen in order to edit its contents.

Let’s change the contents of the template so that we will have something to display on the web browser.

At the moment we did not change the initial code generated by Umbraco. We just added a normal html page at the bottom of the template. The page as it is now, displays static texts for SEO and for the contents of the page. We will see later how to make these information to be dynamic.
