On the left of the screen is a list of your templates. Select a template, by clicking on it and it will then load into the editor on the right. In the example above, the template i very simple, it only has the reserved word "[Title]" in the Nonscroll section at the top. When you add a new topic using this template, the Title that you type in for your page will replace the [Title]. This is the only reserved word that can be inserted.
