If you created an MVC template from scratch or you deleted your layout file for some reason, you can create a new layout file, on which you base the existing page template. Thus, you modify the template in the backend, add and configure widgets on pages that use this template, and so on.
The following table summarizes your options of where to create the layout file.
IMPORTANT: When deciding where to create or add your template, consider the factors for resolving views, as well as the naming conventions for new template files. For more information, see Priorities for resolving views.
Once you add the .cshtml file is added to the Layouts folder of the Resource package, after application restart, a page template is automatically generated in Design » Page Templates in Sitefinity CMS backend. Any changes you make to the file in the resource will be reflected in the page template in Sitefinity CMS as well.
NOTE: If the ResourcePackages folder does not contain any packages, the widget templates are loaded from the MVC folder of SitefinityWebApp, in case this folder contains files with names that follow the naming convention. Templates from the widgets' assemblies have the lowest loading priority, templates in the MVC folder of SitefinityWebApp have higher priority, and templates from a package have the highest loading priority.
