Website Design

August 2011

A lot of people get tempted by good looking web templates. Some template vendors even offer do-it-yourself kits to their customers. Web templates are designed by experts, using the latest designing software. They look stunning, compared to web pages developed by other means. While readymade templates offer several advantages, they have some disadvantages too.

Disadvantages of using templates:

You can get web templates for free or at a low-price. But these templates are not unique. Many people may have already bought or downloaded the templates that you have chosen. If you cannot change the colors or layout a bit, your site looks like a clone of many sites. If you want a unique template design licensed only to you, you need to spend a fortune on it.

Often, templates don't look good if you stretch them a bit. For example, if there is space for 100 words in a block and if you try to insert 200 words in that space, the template layout may change. And this may not look good. This puts limitations on text you can place in a template based web page, thereby restricting you from optimizing text or being descriptive about your business. It is well known that the more verbose in a page the more attention it gets from search engines. A template doesn't come with Meta tags. You need to insert these meta tags.

Templates are good for static pages. If a site needs dynamic pages with a huge database to built, you need to opt for simpler templates. If you are doing customization for yourself, always work on a copy of the template files. Templates are often done with simple HTML. But if you try to edit HTML tags instead of text between them, you might end up with bad page layout.

If there are template files with .tpl extension, locate the files where variables are defined. Then try to establish the logic behind the file system

So, If you need a well-designed website, you'd better ask professional website design company for help.
