Building Websites with Themes and Templates

Web templates and themes reduce the complexity of building websites. They may not be as simple as online website building tools that offer a simple point and drag interface, but they are definitely easier than creating websites from scratch.

With basic or medium range knowledge in HTML, CSS, PHP, and / or JavaScript one can easily customise and manipulate a web template.

A Website template is the part of the theme that represent the website’s skeleton. They offer the structure and layout of a website. It may also come with some dummy content, which you will remove and add your own.

If you are using a Content Management System like WordPress or Joomla, you can download free and paid premium themes. You can then customise the template for a unique look of your website.

Download Theme and Templates Online

There are websites online like Evanto and iThemes where you can download website themes and templates. You can download the theme and upload it to your WordPress installation. Most themes will offer website builders built-in to help you customise the website to your taste.

The web templates may be either free or for sale. Free website templates usually look simple and will take a lot of work to look professional. They may also include ads.

If you do not have good experience in building websites, downloading a free website template will be a big mistake. You are better off with a premium theme. They look more professional and can be used out of the box with little or no customisation. Some may even come with a backend interface that reduces the complexity in customising the web templates.

If you are using a Content Management System (CMS) like WordPress, you download a responsive WordPress theme and install and activate it in your WordPress installation.

Use Online Web Template Tools

Web template tools (also called Website Building Tools) are online tools that enable you create and customise websites. They offer nice looking templates to work with. Web template tools offer tools that enable you customise the templates on their sites. You can replace the dummy content with your own.

Then add your images, videos, logos, new pages, and links and you could have a business website in a couple of hours. Some template tools will offer nice images you can use on your website that will enable you create professional looking websites.

Once your website is ready, you can publish it instantly as these web builders also offer web hosting.

Some online website template tools offer their services free, but may require you to make a donation or they will be displaying ads on your website. So, if you are designing a business website it is always better to go for a paid service.

That way you get most of the premium features enabling you create the best possible website with the given template.

A good example of a website building tool is Wix. If you are using a content management system (CMS), make sure that the web template tool you are using can be used to create website templates for the CMS.
