  • see the introduction

  • sort the template list by date update, download frequency, ratings and min version.
  • search templates by keywords, category, and compatible versions.

Note: Min Version lists All and Compatible two options. Compatible means set min version to current Origin version, so you will only see the templates that can really install and used in your Origin. However, it won't filter out Pro version if you have a standard Origin.

Updates tab: manage and update existing templates

Choose Updates tab from left to view all templates available for updates. You can click TemplateCenter update button.png button to the right of an Template to update it, or click Update All Compatible button to update all at once.

You can set @AUA = 1 in the System Variables dialog to turn on auto-update for installed templates/Apps that have an update available.
