Start from a sample page
Sample Pages vs Page Templates
A sample page and a page template are both pre-made web pages for you to start building a new web page quickly. Most web builder software and services use page templates. To distinguish from other web builders, Limnor Web Home Service chooses the term "sample page".
What is a page template
A page template is one or more pre-made web pages for you to start with your web site building. It enables you to create web site quickly because lots of things are already built into the pages. It gives you limited customization options to make the page templates into your specific web site. If one page template does not fit your web building requirements then you must choose another page template. Many times some changes you think are minor but require a different page template. One important criteria to judge a web builder software or service is the number of page templates it provides. Hundreds, thousands, and even more than 10 thousands of page templates are provided by one web builder tool to try to satisfy vast diversity of web building tastes.
What is a sample page
Unlike other web builder tools, Limnor Web Home Service does not rely on page templates. It is based on visual page element editing. When creating a new web page, it provides a few pre-made web pages for you to start with. To distinguish from "page template", these pre-made web pages are called "sample pages". Comparing with page templates, sample pages are different in following ways.
- There is not a limitation on what can be edited and what cannot. Every thing can be edited.
- There is not a difference in editing a sample page and a page created not from a sample. A sample page is not a specifically designed web page, as a page template is. Actually any HTML file in the world can be a sample page for you to start with. For example, you may use any web page you previously designed as a sample page to create new web pages. You can do it by selecting your page in the Page Manager; clicking the button "Duplicate".
- Without visual page element editing capability, other visual web builder tools must rely on page templates as the web site building platform. With complete visual page element editing capability, sample pages do not play a crucial role as page templates do in other web builder tools. Sample pages are only provided for convenience.
