    Hi,

    I noticed that I can append a template's name to a valid Url and it is beeing displayed. Let's say I have a Url like www.mysite.com/node1/subnode1/mypage then I can call an url like www.mysite.com/node1/subnode1/maypage/newspage when I have a template called newspage.cshtml.

    Could anybody explain that behaviour to me?

    Thanx, Stephan

    Its actually an alternative template so you could render a page with a different template than the one assigned in the back-office. A common use case for us is to render blog categories where you don't really need a categories page but you can filter a blog by using a different template at something like blogaddress.com/categories?categoryID=1234

    Here's a video on it, hitting the template by name has the same effect as putting the altTemplate querystring like this: blogaddress.com?altTemplate=categories
