Understanding your site template 


Note - this is an advanced topic for users with programming expertise.

Behind the scenes, the following items come together to build the HTML for each page your site:

  • Template - This is the overall container for the building your web pages. It contains references such as " { HEADER } " (without the quotes or spaces).  When Web Builder Express generates your HTML page, it and pulls in the HTML or programming code for these references.  Some references, such as for header, layout, and footer, pull in HTML code you define.  Other references, such as for a page hit counter, breadcrumb trail, or search box, incorporate HTML or other programming code that Web Builder Express controls.
  • Header - The Header is placed where the text " { HEADER } " is marked in the Template HTML.  It usually appears a the top of every page. You can define the HTML for the Header by selecting "Advanced Features", "Site Design Setting" from the main "Action Menu", and then selecting your template.
  • Layout - The Layout is placed where the text " { LAYOUT } " is marked in the Template HTML.  It usually appears in the middle, or body, of every page.  It may contain one or many areas to display content.  You can define the HTML for the Layout by selecting "Advanced Features", "Site Design Setting" from the main "Action Menu", and then selecting your template.
  • Footer - The Footer is placed where the text " { FOOTER } " is marked in the Template HTML.  It usually appears at the bottom of every page.  You can define the HTML for the Footer by selecting "Advanced Features", "Site Design Setting" from the main "Action Menu", and then selecting your template.
