Another option is to have someone edit the template for you. If you really have no clue when it comes to web design, even with a prepared template, most website template companies also offer a custom design service. This keeps the cost down, which is the main benefit of utilizing a template in the first place, while still letting you enjoy the perk of having someone else do the editing.
For editing layouts and styles you would require a CSS style sheet. A CSS style sheet is a document that lets you make changes like text color, text/paragraph spacing, headings, links etc to multiple pages. Always ask your template provider to give external CSS style sheets as they are easy to edit. CSS can be edited using any HTML or text based editors.
Web design is a complex process which, at times, involves a good number of people. For those who have a moderate level of experience the use of Web design templates might be the way to go. A web design template cuts out the step of CSS development while leaving a lot of room for customization of the website. The use of design templates is one ethical option for designers as long as certain rules are kept.
CMS is friendly software used for managing the content of web design projects. You can also use CMS for keeping your documents and sharing them with your colleagues. For instance some information of your company is stored by means of CMS. So, each of your colleagues can add, change or update the content of your company's web site, its images and audio files. Here and now we see that CMS is acknowledged to be a necessary tool for managing web site content.
Similar to PSD files and Photoshop, templates that advertise Flash elements also require their own editor. It is beyond the scope of this article to discuss the wisdom of using Flash in the first place, but as a general rule of thumb, keep Flash use to minimum. Unless the template is for a complete Flash site, it will likely contain a "non-Flash" version of the template. Generally Flash is used for navigation and headers in templates, so if don't wish to use the Flash elements, check to see if there is a "non-Flash" version that uses gif/jpeg graphics instead. Otherwise a Flash editor will be required as well as some more time and effort to learn the editor and Flash. Ironically, templates can be a useful learning tool for Flash, since seeing how they are laid out and scripted can provide an understanding of how the animations work.
