I'm quite surprised that this hasn't yet been thoroughly addressed, as it's something that I ran into fairly quickly.

My site structure looks something like this:

Site ->

  • Home
  • Company ->
    • Vision
    • Team
    • ...
    • ...

  • Portfolio ->
    • ...
    • ...

And so on. It's a three-level hierarchy. All of the subpages are very simple, and don't need their own controller logic. They're simply template content that wouldn't do well with being in the CMS.

I would like to have these subpage templates in a subdirectory of Layout, and rendered automatically within their parent pagetype template. I cannot figure out how to extend the template selection of SiteTree to do this.

Any ideas?

Couldn't you just create the pages in the CMS and add the content in there?
Wouldn't this be simpler than creating a different template for each?
