Snippet directly in a page template?


Can we put a snippet template directly into a page template or we have to always create slots to insert them?


If you talking about adding a “snippet template” for some arbitrary item, then yes, you have to use the Slot mechanism.

If you want to include a different template of the current item, you can use the assembly service directly (look at the #slot macros, they show you how) to assemble a “clone” of the current assembly item.
