In addition to the home (front) page template, most sites have two other sets of templates: standard, and subterm.


Standard templates show the content posted to the navigation term you're on.

Subterm templates show the content posted to the terms below the term you're on.


For example, let's say you have the parent (About) and child (all other) terms:


About us

 -- Our mission

 -- History

 -- Contact us

 -- Join us


If you were on the About us page and it was using some sort of Standard template, you would see all of the content posted to the About us term


If instead you saw an About us Overview, but then saw brief content from the other terms (Our mission, History, Contact us, Join us), that would be a Subterm template. (So called because it shows the content from the subterms!)


One more thing to understand about templates: there can be multiple kinds of Standard templates, depending upon your content's needs. Some examples would be the regular teaser view, two column grid, three column grid, titles only ... there are actually many options. We can customize the Standard template in a multitude of ways to make the content display in the best possible way for site visitors. 


Here's an example of a Standard template on our Meet the Team page, in its "regular" form where the posts are stacked, full width, and show teaser body content with read more links:



And here is an example of the same page, same content, but themed in a three column grid, with only images and Title (or names) appearing:



We have the ability to provide a variety of templates, and you can use the template switcher to change between them. (You can also change them when in the Advanced settings for navigation terms, too, as mentioned in this article .)


Your template switcher will likely have a bit different set of choices, but you'll find it in the lower right corner of your browser window whenever you're on a landing page (not a full post view) other than the home page:
