Developers and content creators can leverage Solodev CMS to create and manage various web files related to various digital projects.

We will provide a high level overview of the various file types supported in the Solodev CMS system.


Hypertext Markup Language (HTML) is the markup language used to create the foundation of any web page. In addition to uploading html files to Solodev CMS, users can create and edit html files natively via Solodev’s WYSIWYG or code editor. HTML files can be inserted into STMLs using Dynamic Div Technology.

File Extension



An acronym for hyper-text-markup-language and the extension for web pages.


An abbreviation for an HTML file.

In the Solodev, HTML files are not web pages. HTML pages serve as content blocks that can be organized and embedded into STML pages via Solodev’s Dynamic Div technology.

Template Files (.tpl)

Template files allow users to reuse blocks HTML code for each section or page of their website. In addition, template files allow users to harness the power of nested layouts creating drop zones with Dynamic Div technology that can be embedded into STML pages. Templates allow users to utilize more complex html syntax than is possible with the WYSIWYG editor. For more information about template files, please refer to the documents listed below:


Users can place and specify the display and design of several different types of images throughout their websites. The most widely used formats on the Web are PNG, JPEG, GIF and JPG.
