It is not necessary to have a lot f software to use design templates. You will need a text editor to modify the template. Anything from Notepad found on Windows computers to Adobe Dreamweaver will work. Notepad is very simple and offers no help in understanding design. Dreamweaver is a top shelf WYSIWYG editor. Dreamweaver will aid in modifying the template with very little skill required.It is very expensive, however. You may want an image program to edit images. You will need an FTP program to upload the finished pages and images to your server. That is about all you will need.
Apart from the fact that a majority of web templates come pre-loaded with standard pages like 'home', 'about us', 'products/services', and 'contact information', some also provide add-on HTML and Flash applications. You can also select web design templates with features such as photo gallery, online polls, live chat or credit card processing if it will serve your purpose.
Another thing to remember is to make sure that the online seller/website is a reputable one. Look for a site that offers a good refund policy. Sellers that are confident and stand by their products will offer a money-back guarantee. Most of these websites also use secure online payment platforms. Paypal is one of a few online payment services that is secure and also protects the buyer by offering a strong refund policy themselves. For example, in the case of a dispute, if the buyer's reason for a refund is legitimate, Paypal will actually reverse the payment. That is, they will take the funds from the seller and send them back to the buyer. This is part of their buyer seller agreement policy - and is what makes them one of the most sought after online payment services.
Sawing, rasping and filing are time consuming and tedious to way to make templates. It is also difficult to make a perfect curve with hand tools. Accurate templates are most easily made with sanders and routers.
Some workpieces are too small to rout safely if they are sandwiched between a workbench and template. For instance to taper legs for a coffee table you can build a template that holds the workpiece in place with toggle clamps. Guide blocks can be used to position the side and end of the leg leaving enough room behind them to clamp the template upside down to a workbench edge. To get a smooth taper, the guide blocks must be secured at the desired angle in relation to the edge of the template. As the router follows the edge, it cuts the taper angle of the blocks in the leg.
Another way that you can customize your template is by editing the blog's template file. You can access the template file by going to Layout -> Edit HTML. Blogger would probably be more accurate naming the link "Edit XML", since that's what you're actually editing. What you'll find in the template file are some variable definitions, some CSS style definitions, and finally the body of the blog page, which contains a bunch of XML tags that look something like this:
