What is a template?

A website template is a set of page templates built from a generic topic or from a profession. Website templates can be pre-built in terms of :

  • structure
  • layout
  • text and image content

In most cases, text content are generic, meaningless or totally empty.

Making a website was difficult at the beginning of Internet since everyone programmed his website on his side and by hand. Everyone did unknowingly, tailor-made. Then CMS, better known as Content Management System, like WordPress, Joomla have emerged and introduced the notion of template.

The goal has therefore changed over time: do all its website yourself. The idea is to reuse the same codebase and then customize what you want, like a lego game.
