As is sometimes the case, I'm writing this post primarily for my own future reference.
Dendrite is a development environment that allows you to work with tokens for commonly-used blocks of text when hand-coding a site. Further to that, it gives you simple dialogs for special blocks with structured text and images, known as 'cards'.
Adding a new template to a Dendrite website
Important things to remember
- Remember to select your new template before OKing this card dialog (the drop-down button at the very top of the Insert Card dialog.) I think it defaults to 'News' rather than the last one you chose.
- If you use a different image format (as I do here, 200w and locked proportions rather than 150x150 for the regular news stories) remember to make sure those settings are right for this special card and future regular ones.
