Understanding Content Blocks

Every page in this website template can contain up to three content "blocks". It may help to think of these as being columns in a page but I will refer to them as blocks. I have customised this page to help you see and undertsand each of these three blocks which placed on the leftmiddle and right of this page.

The main point to take away from viewing this page is that pretty much any page layout can be achieved! Pages can be "complex" from the point of view that they contain all three customisable blocks as well as several static boxes or you can go for a much simpler layout which only has a single block of content on each page. We can discuss and tweak your requirements until such time as you are satisfied it is delivering what you need.

Middle Block / Column

The middle block is the one that contains this text! Every page you create will ALWAYS have a main block and this is where you will enter the main text that is of interest to a visitor to the web site who navigates to any page on the website!

Left Block / Column

If you look to the left of this paragraph, you will see two "static" boxes of text which will be displayed on EVERY page. I refer to these as static because only I am able to change that text. It might be useful to have some form of static content (ie. text that you do not intend to change very often) but by no means is it necessary.

On this page ONLY, there is also a custom box of content that you will have complete control over. Look to the left for a box titled "Left Block".

Right Block / Column

If you look to the right of this paragraph, you will see one"static" box of text which will be displayed on EVERY page. On this page ONLY, there is also a custom box of content that you will have complete control over. Look to the right for a box titled "Right Block".

Templates

One further comment. The website and it's composiiton is based on the concept and capability of using "templates". A template defines the layout and appearance of a website and these templates are, for the most part, completely free to download, customise and deploy. Some require acknowledgement of the original template author and most are quite flexble in how this is done. 

For this website I am using a template called "Glassberry" which I have spent some time changing to get it to the level that you see. Further tweaks and changes are very simple to do although I can only really do that from my main computer at home. The actual "Content" - what visitors see when they visit the site - is completely within your control and change be changed extremely quickly. 
For examples of different templates I am using (and I have looked at a dismissed several others), see;
