What is a Web Template?


In case you're wondering, a web template is like a ready-made web design that you can use and reuse to create one or more pages for your website. This will allow you to whip up a site from scratch quick and easy and will essentially free you from the hassle having to create the layout, select backgrounds, select font styles, color-coordinate everything, decide what to put where, decide whether it will all work, etc.



All you have to do is supply some content (either text and/or graphics) and insert it in the appropriate places in the HTML source code and then presto. Instant web page. You can use the same template for all the pages on your website to give it a uniform appearance.

Here are some simple 3-column templates. All these layouts will expand or contract according to the viewer's screen resolution which is commonly referred to as a liquid display. These web designs also feature gradient header backgrounds which make them easy to fit in with any website theme.





These are 2-column and 3-column templates intended for small business websites. (But this is only a suggested use. If you want to use one for your personal website, no problem.) Some are liquid displays, some are fixed-width displays and some feature a nice drop-shadow effect.





This group of templates features dynamic 3D mouseover effects on the menu buttons. No Javascript experience is required to work with these layouts.





Here are some more 2-column fixed-width web page layouts which are a little more progressive in nature while still retaining a professional look. These can be used for both business and personal websites (although some of them may be a little over the top for a personal site).
