string newTemplateName = "PromotionTemplate";
string newTemplateFriendlyName = "Promotion Template";

// Check if the template exist
if (!templateDto.main_Templates.Any(x => x.Name.Equals(newTemplateName, StringComparison.InvariantCultureIgnoreCase)))
    // Create empty template dto
    templateDto = new Mediachase.Cms.Dto.TemplateDto();
    Mediachase.Cms.Dto.TemplateDto.main_TemplatesRow row = null;

    row = templateDto.main_Templates.Newmain_TemplatesRow();
    row.ApplicationId = Mediachase.Cms.CmsConfiguration.Instance.ApplicationId;

    row.Name = newTemplateName;
    row.FriendlyName = newTemplateFriendlyName;
    row.Path = string.Format("~/Templates/DisplayTemplates/{0}.ascx", newTemplateName);
    row.TemplateType = "Entry";
    row.LanguageCode = "en-us";

    if (row.RowState == DataRowState.Detached)

    // Save any changes
    if (templateDto.HasChanges())
