    For Locations
    For Contact Information
  2. Create Folder for Locations under Global. And add the locations “Location 1” and “Location 2” under this folder.
  3. As of now, leave the icon field blank. Lets add icons in the Media Library.
    Download these icons through the browser.
  4. Create a Media folder “Sitecore Demo” in the Media Library.

  16. Assign icon to this template and standard values.
  17. Navigate to Home item (/Sitecore/Content/Home) and delete it.
  18. A screen will pop up to ask your inputs for removing the links for this item, wherever used or to keep the links. Select Remove links.
  19. Once the item is deleted. Right Click on Content item (/Sitecore/Content) >> Insert >> Insert from template.
