Sample text

They may have a fantastic appearance, but are so rigid that they are nearly useless when you deploy them on a real site. For example, most templates have a front page banner graphic like the one shown in Figure 3-1. There are many poorly designed templates that fail to include the option to turn off this banner graphic, so each and every page on the site must have a large graphic that takes up a great deal of the screen acreage. Advanced templates should always have a method to configure the layout to adapt to different types of pages.

Therefore, you should design enough features into the template (such as varying color schemes) that you can easily alter the site from the Administrator interface without significant new development. This type of flexible template allows the site to change even when there is no time or budget available for more fundamental changes or updates. • Determine if a single dynamic template can fulfill all requirements: Most sites can use a single dynamic template if it can be adjusted through parameters and stylesheets to fit many of the presentation necessities of a site (homepage, navigation page, content pages, and so forth).

These layouts are not meant to be the type of compositions that graphic artists render for a client. Instead, they are a simple visualization tool to imagine where the components and modules might be. Further, you can test various color schemes that you might be considering for the site so you can set up the basic palette of the site before the graphics and CSS are created. Coordinating the color, layout, and graphics will help give the site visual coherence. Start by creating three worksheets (or more if you have selected a more varied or ambitious goal for your template) called Home, Subhome, and Article.
