Well looks like I can't add any text, image or anything when I make a new template... How can you add some text etc in it? 'Cause I really don't know how I activate those buttons

Sign template
A sign template defines which sign boards are used for which editable area. Since patch 1.30, all functionality that was previously assigned to the sign templat items, have now been re-assigned to the sign boards, a new item type in that patch. If you want to create a new sign board, you must first save the template if you just created one. Right-click on the editable area and select "create new board". This will open up the sign board editor.
(...)

Sign board
A sign board defines all of the sign components, their position and other properties in a single editable area. It defines full complete look of a single sign board for single purpose. It may contain texts, frames and images.

You don't need to add them to the content browser yourself; any new item will be added to the content browser. You may have to re-open the content browser if you added new templates.
