Choosing the Perfect Template for Your Website 8 Days
The first step is to select the right pattern that will form the basis of your new look. However, if you've ever viewed line by line templates, you might think, "How do I decide? However, if you have ever viewed line by line templates, you might think, "How do I decide?
Some dexterity is required to look beyond the example contents and the templated name to actually get your own website into form. When you know how templates work, it will be much simpler to find out which one is right for you. Jimdo's templates are structured, not built on text.
That means that if you see a website that looks like a cook website, or a website for travelling, or a website for coaching staff, it doesn't mean that your website has to be somehow related to that subject in order to use that website. So in other words, don't let the contents of the samples distract you.
Attempt to look past it to see the "bones" of the different templates, and you will be much better able to imagine how each one will work on your website. Every Jimdo artwork consists of the following parts: Header: Navigate: Navigating is the menue that leads humans to different pages of your website.
There are Jimdo navigational panels in different styles: spreadcrumb, dropdown, slide-in and standard (more about this the same). Silebar: Silebar is your side bar, usually a small stripe on the page of your website where you can insert extra items. Each page of your website displays the side bar in exactly the same way.
Dependent on the pattern, your side bar may be on the right, your side bar or even on the bottom (which means that "Sidebar" is sometimes an error name...it can also be a "Bottombar" or "Footer"). Contents area: Contents area is the "body" of your website and the place where you will be adding most of your various items.
Every page of your website can have a different contents area. Please note: One important thing to keep in mind is that your headers and sidebar/footer remain the same on ALL pages. The contents area changes from page to page. As soon as you have an overview of the different parts of a pattern, you can begin to recognize them in different configuration.
While some templates have large head areas, others have small ones. Once you have decided which items you want, it's easy to choose the right one. Below you will find a list of four different Jimdo templates. Top and bottom areas are marked amber, navigational menu areas are marked azure, and side bars are marked azure.
Note that in Riga the "sidebar" is actually at the bottom, which gives you a larger contents area. Dublin offers a vertically oriented navigational system, while the others display a horizontally oriented one. Several templates with vertikal navigational menus: Havana, Milan, Lima, DublinSome templates also provide "split" navigationaltion. That means that a part of your nav appears at the top of your page and all subpages appear further down on the right or right side of the page.
Spreadsheets are great if you have lots of contents, a multi-lingual website or a large shop and don't want to fight with long, complex drop-down lists. The following is an example of a slide-in meal from the Sydney theme. When you click on the small top right corner of the screen, the whole screen is displayed.
Your chosen website templates may also vary depending on the nature of the website. Here is an overview of some of the different kinds of sites and the templates hints that belong to each site. In this case, select a style sheet with a side bar on the right or right side.
When you need a large amount of room to view large pictures, you can select a style with a large contents area. Reykjavik, Milan or St. Petersburg, if you want a side bar right or right. Singapore, Berlin or Zurich, if you want a large contents area. When looking for portfolios sites to showcase your artwork, follow a style with a broad contents area and a side bar at the bottom.
Or you can take full benefit of the high-quality pictures you have by using a full-page wallpaper pattern. And because a Web site usually doesn't require as many pages or paragraphs as an e-commerce site, you can use a straightforward overhead horizontally navigational tool or a slide-in navigational toolbar (sometimes referred to as a "hamburger") that doesn't get in your way.
If you want a slide-in meal, try Copenhagen, Sydney or Cape Town. Zurich Master is ideal for portfolios. Featuring a large contents area and a side bar at the bottom, it's simple to showcase your work. A few templates can help you solve this problem.
You can use a templates with alternate navigations or select a navigational toolbar that provides enough space for sub-pages. Patterns with Breadcrumb trails also help the user to know where they are and to which categories each element falls. They can also look at templates with large head areas above that are great for showcasing the latest products.
Norla Design uses the drop-down menus and the large head area of the Rome pattern. When you use a horizontally divided two-line navigational toolbar, or when you have a vertically subtended navigational toolbar with users scrolling down just to see all your menus, you know you're either using the incorrect style sheet or reorganizing your menus.
In order to make room for a large amount of contents, select a theme with a spacious navigational tool. Search for drop-down lists, shared browsing, and spreadcrumb tracks. Look for slide-in navigational pull-down lists that are hard to find for more than a few points. uses a dropdown list style website with a spreadcrumb trailer (both marked in red) to make it easier for users to find the site they are looking for.
That'?s the Rome bill. A way to solve this problem is to use a presentation with alternate nav. In this way, your top menu can be split into different language versions (e.g. English | French | Spanish) and you can insert sub-pages below. They can also use templates with easy drop-down mouse-clicks.
Norla Design's example above uses the Rome model to create a multi-lingual shop. Lille, Bordeaux, Hamburg, Chicago, Madrid and Hong Kong - they all have secondaries. www.freedomandspirit. be, a website with multiple websites, uses the Hamburg template's main website's main website's main website's website's secondary navigational structure to split its contents into different tongues. Each of the three available localizations can be found in the top right hand corner menus, and the sub-sections for each localization appear in a vertically arranged menus on the top right.
No matter if you are a place that publishes your menus and opening times, a parlour that publishes your contacts and your reservation widget, or a shop that publishes your sites and latest product, there are many templates that will match you to a T. In this case you probably won't need to customize a great deal of contents, but you want to make sure that the contents you have are easily found without many mouse clicks. Your website is a great place to start.
Selecting a style with a side bar either side is a good starting point, and you can enter your base statistics there so that folks can find them quickly. Sidebars on the bottom can also work, but it still takes a few seconds for the customer to scrolls down to see them.
They should also stay with a brief navigational menue, either horizontally or vertically. It is also possible to jump over originals with drawer mouse-clicks. As soon as you have a general understanding of the type of submission you want (and some potential contestants in mind), you can test it on your actual website with the help of the templates selector.
Simply click the Templates pushbutton in your Site Admin. Using the Selector Tool, you can see a glimpse of what each style would look like with your actual contents. Unless you click "Save", you will not actually modify your pattern. Anytime you can modify your templates in the Selector window.
Simply select "Templates" in your Site Admin and search through the available settings. Likewise, you can launch a JimdoFree website and insert only part of your current contents to see how your navigations and photographs might work with different templates before making these customizations on your actual website. Don't miss to click the Variations buttons for each style sheet to see additional choices.
As you scroll through the documents, be sure to review the variation of each document. Often they are available in different colours or with slight changes in the menu. With many templates, you can often select whether your navigational and head area should be centered, right or centered. Each of these choices allows you to customize templates until you really have the feeling that a website meets your needs and has become unique to your own.
