You could choose to use a 'zmi_master' template which looked like so:: <metal:x metal:define-macro="master"> <tal:x tal:replace="structure context/manage_page_header" /> <tal:x tal:replace="structure context/manage_tabs" /> <div metal:define-slot="main"> Non-boilerplate goes here. </div> <tal:x tal:replace="structure context/manage_page_footer" /> </metal:x> If you registered that template as a view in your product's 'configure.zcml', e.g.: <browser:page for="*" name="zmi_master" template="zmi_master.pt" /> you can then use it in your own ZMI templates, e.g.: <html metal:use-macro="context/@@zmi_master/macros/master"> <body> <div metal:fill-slot="main"> <h1> Test ZMI Macro </h1> </div> </body> </html> I have attached a tarball of a simple Zope2 product which does this. After installation, you should be able to visit http://localhost:8080/zmi_test to see the results.
