I would say the number one benefit to website templates is that they‘re going to save you from having to wait for somebody else to get done with your website. You won‘t control don‘t you? Well website templates allow you to have a personal website set up within a few days after purchasing. All you would need is to select the platform you want and then choose templates that are going to suit it. Now compare this to trying to do everything yourself or hiring a professional web developer. It can take days before the product is even ready to get started.
If we directly insert the content, we will create a new page template for each page of the site. But this is fine since we are not duplicating the header, footer and sidebar. To reduce the number of page templates, we can store our content in a database and use a page ID to identify which page content to insert. This ID is usually appended to our URLs of the website. If we do this, we are creating what is known as a Content Management System (CMS). Where the theme is likely to be changed often or people are encouraged to design new themes, a separate directory can be created to hold the various themes. A read me file could be included to credit the designer, or this information could be added to the start of the style sheet as a comment section.
