Over the years, the way a web developer goes about building your website has changed dramatically.

Originally, all coding for the Menu’s, Footers and body content were done manually, requiring an indepth knowlege of HTML and CSS coding. Not to mention Javascript and PHP if you’re inserting changing content.

However, with todays advance into CMS systems, the likes of WordPress, Joomla and Drupal have literally taken the expertise out of coding, and left the coder with only small tweaks and adjustments to make.

The latest WordPress Templates are basically flat templates that give the Web Designer a starting point. The templates allow for site-wide setup of Fonts and Color schemes, thus allowing the web designer to then craft the actual content.

Yes, you can still do a lot of coding if the template or page builder don’t provide what you’re looking for, but when it comes down to it, it’s only ever slight tweaking, to give the webpage a feeling of uniqueness.

Page Builders such as Elementor, allow for full customisation of every module, allowing for a unique look to be achieved. To do this, the web developer has to have a decent knowlege of CSS.

It’s amazing how two websites can be started using the same Template, but then customised depending on the content provided by the client and the desired “use” of the website.

So, these days, Templates are not what they used to be. They’re now just vanilla settings, waiting for your web developer to customise away and make your site stand out from the crowd.
