While making a site using web templates a person can make a base template file where it is possible to specify the non editable and editable regions separately. People also prefer the template based sites as they tend to be search engine friendly if the template is optimized properly. One can take the help of certain web site design software like Dream weaver for creating website templates easily. However, it also helps if one knows HTML to an extent.
We might divide a page template into a header, content, sidebar and footer where these are in separate files. The content will change most between pages, so rather than having a content file, we include the content into a page file which pulls in the individual template files and defines the unique features of that page. The unique features of a page will be the title, description and article content. We can define these at the start of the page template with say PHP code to set the value of variables that are used by the other templates such as the header template. Then we assemble the page by including the required templates and inserting the content.
