Some of the popular web development tools include Sublime Text, Chrome Developer Toos, jQuery, GitHib, Twitter Bootstrap and Angular.js. These tools are part of an age that is an improvement from when website designing was a complicated process that involved weeks of intense programming and coding. Back then, only a limited number of people could handle the task of designing, programming and managing websites. However, with the help of some of the tools mentioned earlier, anybody with a bit of training can set up a fully functional website in little to no time. Web developers are in high demand right now and this is because many business owners believe that you can run a successful internet enterprise without much effort.
However, the reverse is the case. Managing a website has become more time consuming and stressful than it was before all these new technological advances. A lot of internet businesses that are built from scratch end up failing. This is not due to a lack of technological know-how on the parts of the owners.
Ever heard of the saying “too much of a good thing is bad?” Well, that is the case with website designing as well. There is such an overwhelming deluge of information about website designing that it usually leaves the operators confused. There are also a seemingly endless supply of products and tools available online that the operators will end up overwhelmed.
My job here is to ensure that the same does not happen to you. I will give you a comprehensive overview of web development and design with especial attention paid to templates for website designing.
There are two options for website designing. You can choose to use website templates or pre-installed website softwares. These individual options have a purpose they serve. At the end of the day, no matter the feature each comes with, you will still have a website ready for your use.
Website templates are predesigned resources that outline the whole layout and physical display features of a website. A website template is provided to ease the process of Web designing. It gives Web designers the designers the opportunity to easily insert content into a sophisticated wireframe that operates with the aid of Web languages like CSS and HTML. A typical Web template is usually outfitted with headlines, background images and banners, thumbnail image slots and intricately arranged titles. This makes it a simple case of ‘plug and play’ for the designers. All they have to do is insert the right text and images in the right place. This provides them with a very effective and elaborate Web style and they do so without having to write codes.
Definity is a single and multi-page template that can be adapted for different purposes. It was developed by Ocarine Themes. It operates on Bootstrap 3 and it is outfitted with features like hover effects, parallax scrolling and video backgrounds. It also has a modular design that enables the developer to move sections of the page around to a preferred position or angle. Its latest update can be purchased for $30 and it comes with five new layouts and three additional templates.
This program runs on WordPress and it was designed to be very user-friendly. Enfold is well suited for designing business websites and online stores, although the latter will have to be done with the aid of WooCommerce. It features a drag and drop template customizer that comes in handy when you want to custom-build your own layout. You can purchase the full package $60 and it comes with a gift cad for future updates, and also six month’s support.
Porto (HTML 5)
The Porto program is equipped with a wide range of homepage styles. It also has a considerable number of header layouts and you can readily use it to customize your website on the go with a multi purpose style switcher. It is a very flexible program and it has versions compatible with Drupal, Magento and WordPress. There is also an Admin version that allows you to effectively manage your website with a wide range of widgets and charts. All these functions are coordinated by a swish dashboard.
PRE-INSTALLED WEBSITE SOFTWARES
Almost every web hosting company online includes preinstalled Web designing software in your package when you purchase a premium web hosting package. With this tool, you can easily operate and manage a user-friendly website like a pro. The software is automatically equipped with an administrator control panel that allows you to include blog postings, forums and posts.
You can also perform other functions like changing the site layout, adding chat rooms and altering the overall design and theme of your website. Some of the best versions of this software provide program coding, website templates and website functionality after the installation of the software. After that, the only things you have to do is alter a couple of pictures configure some files and set your preferences. Then, you have yourself a live website!
There are many types of program coding and each comes with a learning curve and specially designed purpose. The functionality of your website is simply what you set it out to do. This can range from blogging to news to member signups and eCommerce. However, there are a few factors to consider when you want to choose a website software.
You have to first establish the purpose behind setting up your blog. Is it supposed to act as a social network, an auction site or a search engine? Also, you must choose a coding language you are very familiar with. This could be .php, .cgi, or .php. Finally, you should choose a preinstalled software that is very popular among users. It should have a good support system and a lot of features. It should also be a program that can be easily upgraded and updated.
