I have used many different CMS over the years but one thing I think Umbraco really needs is the ability to create templates but on the content section be able to add specific elements into the templates.
The ability to snap in elements would be great, is it possible?
is this what you're looking for?
No not really.
For example I am using the same content page for most of the site.
But on the contact page I would like to have these same options but the ability to add another section for a google map. I know that can be added via the source code box but would prefer just to add the lat and lon into a box and a point appears.
As this box is only required on the Contact Page I don't seem in necessary to have this on every page.
I only want to have elements I am using to display.
It sounds like you are looking for a more component based approach to building pages.
The recommended way for this is the block list editor:
Is that any closer to what you need?
Maybe will take a look now.
Another option is the grid. Its sort of a custom version of the Elementor approach if you're familiar with wordpress: https://our.umbraco.com/documentation/getting-started/backoffice/property-editors/built-in-property-editors/grid-layout/
Block list is great also, just a different approach depending on what you're looking for.
Content Templates are a great way to have specific elements already added to a page when a content editor is creating a new page in the CMS.
Here's a quick guide on how to create a Content Template in Umbraco https://uskinned.net/support/content-editing-with-uskinned-site-builder-for-umbraco/how-to-create-a-reusable-content-template/
You'll note the above scenario is using the uSkinned Site Builder, however, the creation of Content Templates is the same regardless of whether you are using uSkinned or not. If you're interested in uSkinned you can find out more here: https://uskinned.net/tour/
I really thought Block Lists were the way forward but I am unable to add Nested Content to them.
Still a bit lost.
Essentially rather than having several templates as I do now I simply want one or two.
All pages will consist of Header.
But then ideally want the user to select what elements to use including any nested elements.
In Block List you can next another Block List you can't nest a Nested Content.
