If you click on the Save as my template link at http://jsbin.com/, it will save the current page as my template and display it when I come back to the page later.

How do I undo that so that I get a clean slate?

It may sound stupid but removing the content in both windows left and right and saving it as an template creates a blank state.

If you want to have the original template back here's the data:


if (document.getElementById('hello')) {
  document.getElementById('hello').innerHTML = 'Hello World - this was inserted using JavaScript';


<!DOCTYPE html>
<meta charset=utf-8 />
<title>JS Bin</title>
<!--[if IE]>
  <script src="http://html5shiv.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/html5.js"></script>
  article, aside, figure, footer, header, hgroup, 
  menu, nav, section { display: block; }
  <p id="hello">Hello World</p>

Clearing your cookies for this site will also bring back this original template.

stupid is as stupid does sir. That's what I did. I just don't get why there isn't a button for that. – Homer Sep 23 '10 at 16:34
