Creating a professional website may prove to be a challenge for many people. It is for this reason that many prefer the use of web page templates, which offer provide pre-designed web sites which one can easily download and personalize by inputting relevant information. In essence these templates form the basic structure of any website. Those who acquire the use of templates either do not know how to create their own website or are in a hurry to get a site up and running in the shortest time possible. The uses of web page templates, therefore, may or may not be computer savvy. The use of web page templates, whether for personal or corporate use may be for various uses including display of information or products, creating an online blog or web photo galleries.
There is another advantage to using a website template for your web design. You will frequently be able to get regular updates to keep up with all the others on the web. Once you have found out what developments and updates are needed to keep your site fresh and modern, the template will make it simple to integrate the changes throughout your website without having to make changes to the layout.
If you don't want to have to pay for a design, like mentioned earlier, you can always write your own. Because of the language of the software, it is best if you know a little bit about it, as well as, HTML and CSS coding, or you could get lost easily in the process. There is software available that will assist you in writing your own templates, whether they are back end templates or front end templates. So, the choice is yours. I'm sure you can find the layout and style that you are looking for; however, it may take a little time to find it.
The wonderful thing about a CSS file is that even if you're working with premium business templates you're still free to make minor adjustments to font, background or sidebar colors. As long as the template license allows for minor changes, there is nothing preventing you from further customization of colors of the theme to make it better correspond your business requirements.
In order to effectively edit your template beyond simply changing fonts and colors in the variable definition section, you'll need to know (or be willing to learn) some things about CSS and the Blogger XML schema. It will likely take some studying of the existing XML setup and some experimenting to make the improvements you're looking for. As you make changes, you might want to keep a backup copy of your last working template so you don't have to go back to work from the original template file if you mess something up.
When you change your template by choosing Pick New Template, Blogger's system is intelligent enough to preserve the gadgets you currently have set up. For instance, if you have added some gadgets using the Add a Gadget link on the Layout -> Page Elements page, those gadgets will be preserved in your new template design. I'll discuss later a method for changing your template design that requires more caution.
