The New Template Group tab at the top of the Templates page allows you to create a new Template Group.

Template New Group

Template Group Name

The name of the Template Group. This must be a single word with no spaces. You may use the letters a-z, the numbers 0-9, and the underscore and hyphen/dash characters. You should refrain from creating all-numeric Template Group names as they can cause confusion with Entry IDs used in URLs.

Duplicate an Existing Template Group

You can optionally choose to base your new group on an existing one.

The checkbox at the bottom of the Template Group page allows you to choose a particular Group as the site default.
