Work with Jimdo templates
I used to write about Weebly website templates and how to use them. However, thanks to this research I did with Weebly, I wanted to find out if it was possible to have the same high performance template choices with other site builder sites. Surprisingly, I found that Jimdo also has flexibility when it comes to working with templates.
So this article is about what the Jimdo templates are, how to make changes to them during the website building and how to make changes to them. The Jimdo Topics page shows a list of Jimdo Topics that you can visit here: It' s a good idea to categorize the topics to make surfing easier, and that's what Jimdo does.
If you call up the topic page, you are taken to the All group. There are two things that are conspicuous when you look at the page. Firstly, if you select the All lands catagory, it will show you only 16 topics in all ( at the moment of writing). The number of templates is however higher, because the variation of each of the templates varies).
Secondly, you also have the Blank Layout options, where you can create your own templates using the Jimdo Editor. button: Once you've clicked the Select this preset icon, you'll need to go through several different stages before you can have the preset on your website. I will go through the whole selection procedure of a submission later in this article.
You have four options for working with Jimdo templates: Select a topic when you create a new website. Change a topic for an exisiting website. Create a website with a empty style sheet. Customize the design itself (using code). Four, adapting the topic itself (with code), is outside the range of this article.
At some point in the near term I will be writing a detailled article about how to make the templates yourself using HTML and CSS. How to do this? Another example of interaction with Jimdo templates is the creation of a new website from the ground up. 1 ) Sign in to your Jimdo Dashboard and click the orange icon with the text Build a new website:
2 ) Next, choose the website you want to build. To do this demo, I picked Website, and then I pressed the Make a Website button: 3 ) On the next page, you will be asked to choose the sector to which your website relates. Practically, whether I choose an industrial sector or not, it had no impact on the templates that were presented to me in the next one.
Thus, no matter what you decide, you will still see the page where you can decide the submission for your website: 4 ) Move the cursor over the desired pattern and click on Check This Template: 5 ) The next page shows you the map you want to use to build your website. This time I selected the free map for this demo and pressed Get started:
I select the Free Domain radio button for this demonstration by typing in a casual name and click Checking the availability: As soon as the review is complete and no other website with a similar name has been found, click the Make a Free Website link. 7 ) Jimdo starts building your website, and when it's done, it opens in the Notepad.
Ok, so you made a website, but now you have doubts: Maybe your website would look better with another one? Jimdo lets you modify the style sheet even if you create your website using a different style sheet. Modifying a pattern is easy: 1) Sign in to your Jimdo dashboard.
2 ) Select the topic you want to work with by moving the mouse over the topic and click on it. Maybe you've also realized that there are three points at the bottom right of the topic. Upgrading: Update your Jimdo schedule. Modify: Modify the topic. Displays the topic of the topic. Move your design to another bankroll.
3 ) Once you have selected a specific website for edit, click Menu in the top menu and select Design: 4) It will help you to select various preferences related to the look of your website. Select the Templates in this case link: 5 ) You see all possible topics to select from: 6)
If you select one of the topics, you will see extra selection choices. You can either view a thumbnail of the design to see what it looks like, or click the variation button to see the different varieties of a particular design: If, for example, you wanted to see the variation of this particular subject, you can see what you see on the Bordeaux subject here: 7)
As soon as you have selected the desired topic, simply click on the topic miniature image. Click the Save icon to save your selection: Now your reference has been modified. Jimdo includes a specific style sheet that you can use to customize your topic. It is referred to as a blank document and is located at the end of the document listing.
Let's go directly to the part where the templates are selected. 1 ) Select the empty style from the style sheet at the end by pressing the Select this Template icon: 2). Use the Jimdo plan. 4 ) Jimdo will create the website for you and open it in the editor: 5)
The next thing you do is either begin to add new items to your website by pressing the Add Item buttons. Ok, so there is another way to find the right preset for your needs and this function is named preset filter. This will help you choose a suitable design for your website, on the basis of the design element layouts a design contains.
In order to find the templates you can either go directly to the Templates page: Here you can sort the topics by the items you want to see on your templates. In this next image, for example, I was filtering all the topics that had a drop-down menu in them, and I got 14 results:
You can also work with the Filter Templates by signing into your user accounts and modifying your recent design (see the procedure for modifying a topic for an existing website). When you see the topic selector at the top of the page, simply move the mouse to the right and click the Find the perfect template button.
You will then be redirected to the page templates filters. There, you must click on the Click for the template filters icon to open the current templates filter: For added customization to your Jimdo templates, you can always customize your own if you're familiar with HTML and CSS. Even if you're not familiar with HTML and HTML, you can customize your Jimdo templates to suit your needs.
In order to start with this options, please go to the next section. 1 ) Sign in to your Moneybookers and select an already established website. 2 ) Select the user defined template from Menu > Design > Advanced: 3) Make the desired changes with HTML and CSS and click the Save button: For more information about the Jimdo customized templates, please visit the Jimdo Custom Template posting:
How about other templates? So what if you don't like the templates Jimdo is offering? Would you like to rebuild your website from the ground up, either by encoding it with HTML and CSS code or by building it with the empty templates options? Now, there's at least one place to find top Jimdo templates, and that's Matrix Themes.
There are many good looking topics that you can use with your Jimdo page. With Jimdo, you have the flexibility to work with page templates: A thing I would like to see is the ability to build your own custom templates from the ground up. Eventually, if you don't think any of the above sounds good for you, go to our on-line topics pages like Matrix Topics to find alternate Jimdo topics.
