1. What is sitecore template and its type?

A template is an item that defines both the structure and behavior of other items.

There are few templates types in sitecore as follow:

Data template: It defines fields used to store or to control how data is entered. They determine the exact field sections, field types, and field names that make up each item, like Page  Template,Data source template, Parameter template

Command template: It allow you to insert items using logic rather than a predefined structure.

Branch template: It is used to create the set of items rather than single item.

1. We can use the config node encodeNameReplacements  in sitecore.config file

  <replace mode="on" find="?" replaceWith=",-q-," />

  <replace mode="on" find="/" replaceWith=",-s-," />

  <replace mode="on" find="*" replaceWith=",-w-," />

  <replace mode="on" find="." replaceWith=",-d-," />

  <replace mode="on" find=":" replaceWith=",-c-," />


2. We can resolve by overriding linkprovider in sitecore like below:

 Public class CustomUrl: linkprovider
