When you build a site, you start with a template, which is basically a prebuilt site. This class explains what templates are and how to use them.
A template is a prebuilt site all set up and ready for you to customize. Typically, templates are designed around a concept—like a band, restaurant, or design agency. They include premade pages, page elements, and content sets.
Note You cannot switch a site’s template. But you can always build another site.
Get templates from the Market:
example.site.moboom.com—if you own your own domain, add that later), and click Create Site to create your site.
Templates are more than just styles and colors—they’re prebuilt sites. That means that each template comes with different prebuilt pages and features.
For example, if you’re building a site for your food truck, then the Food Truck template is a good choice. It comes with a built in menu, schedule, and other pages that a food truck would need.
If you’re building a site for your band, the Boom Music template is probably more like what you’re looking for. This template has a built in SoundCloud widget and tour dates on the homepage.
When looking at a template in the Market, each preview page has a description, screenshots, and a working demo site. So don’t just go with ascetics—templates are more than that. Pick out a template that comes with the features your site needs.
To use a template you already own, create a new site:
If you created a site with a template, there’s a good chance it came with several theme presets. Presets are additional style options that let you quickly change the look of your site. Usually presets are different color schemes
To see your presets:
Note If your site’s already published, click Publish to see the change on your live site.
