HTML Web Templates

A pre-built website called a website template is made up of HTML pages with embedded graphics, text content, and support files for Javascripts and font styles. The final user inputs their text and image content into the pre-built template and submits it to a web hosting account for online viewing. Allwebco offers template designs that are self-contained, or stand-alone, websites that may be downloaded as zip files. By doing this, the buyer gains full ownership of the website they are creating, including all of the source code, stock images, and files.

The same concept applies to both web and website templates. HTML or XHTML may be used to create an HTML web template, which will also contain CSS and Javascript code. Most often, HTML or XHTML code will also be present in PHP and ASP templates. The most recent version of HTML is HTML 5, but HTML 4.01 was in use for a while and is still prevalent on many websites. On October 28, 2014, the most recent version of HTML5, developed by WHATWG, was formally ratified as a stable W3C recommendation. It is widely used on many well-known websites and is supported by all modern web browsers and mobile devices.

HTML explanation

In essence, HTML is utilised to enable the display of a prepared website containing text, photos, scripts, animations, forms, and other website features from a plain text file. Web browsers format and display web pages dynamically using the HTML language. The addition of font styles, colours, and other layout styles to the webpages is done using CSS (cascading style sheets), a distinct language that works in conjunction with HTML.

“HyperText Markup Language,” or HTML, is a set of codes that can be used to put images, links to other hypertext pages, and special typefaces into text files. HTML enables the embedding of objects and images, and it can be used to develop interactive forms. Javascript or HTML-specific tags like the “embed” or “object” tag can be used to embed objects. HTML code was used to create the page you are viewing right now. HTML is raw text rather than a built programme. An HTML website template’s versatility is made possible through this.

HTML code is used to create each web template offered by Allwebco. Click on any of the website template thumbnail images on this page to see an example, or go here to see an example of a Garden template.

CSS and HTML templates

Any website can use CSS code, often known as CSS styles, which stands for “Cascading Style Sheets.” Fonts, colours, backdrops, spacing, object widths and heights, button formatting, text justification, and other website design components are all controlled by CSS. CSS alone cannot be used to create a website. An HTML or XHTML website’s style is formatted using CSS. CSS code can either be present in-line within the HTML code of a webpage or externally referenced in a CSS style sheet file. A global external CSS stylesheet is included in every Allwebco template to specify the design formatting of the HTML web templates. A second file called “media-queries.css” may contain code designed specifically for mobile devices. CSS code called Media Queries can dynamically adjust a webpage’s layout to fit the resolution of a particular device by detecting the browser’s screen width.

Templates for HTML & Javascript

Javascript is used to add dynamic applications to a webpage and can also be written in plain text. Javascript can be written in plain text that is externally linked or it can be integrated in HTML pages using the HTML code of web templates. “include” files for js. The most common way that Javascript is used is as a “client-side” application, which means that the web browser software understands and renders it to give users a better user interface and dynamic website experience.

All HTML templates from Allwebco come with Javascript built into the global header, menu, and footer files. Other Javascripts, such as drop menus, dynamic photo displays, right-click page protection, popup browser windows, and other improvements, may be included in some HTML templates. The HTML templates created by Allwebco heavily utilise Javascript.

Mobile and responsive design

In responsive design, the webpage layout adapts or changes depending on the device and web browser being used to view it. It determines the screen resolution of the viewing device to respond to and then generates the webpages. This form of code is typically developed using CSS styles. Although it’s not technically necessary, mobile-optimized websites almost usually contain Media Queries CSS code to support this flexibility.

Uses of Images in Web Templates

HTML websites can only contain certain types of photos that can be embedded. An image should be one of the following three formats for it to appear correctly and load quickly on a website:

JPEG or JPG Photographs of people’s faces and other intricate images work best with this style of image. To enable faster webpage loading, the image information is compressed. JPEG can be found on Wikipedia or the W3C.
indexed colour image or a GIF. Only 256 colours are supported by this form of image, but since the image data is not compressed, it is possible to create logos and other images with substantial solid-color portions. On Wikipedia, look up graphics interchange format.
Portable Network Graphics, or PNG. In order to achieve a high quality image with a short file size while maintaining unique qualities like transparency and opacity, this sort of image uses “lossless data compression.” For logo graphics and semi-transparent backgrounds that enable image or text stacking, this sort of image works nicely. Visit PNG (Portable Network Graphics) at the W3C or Wikipedia to learn more.

HTML And JQuery

When people talk about jQuery, they’re actually talking about a Javascript library of built-in functions. jQuery is really just a simpler approach to develop Javascript “client-side” functions and event handling for any website; it is not itself a software or browser plug-in. A Javascript jQuery library file is used to insert the functions into the HTML code of the webpages.

Animation, “on click” and “on hover” events, and other special effects that use Javascript to produce animation like slideshows and cascading menus may be included in built-in functions.
