The mere mention of website templates makes some clients bristle. Nobody likes being told they have to conform to a set of rules they feel weren’t written with them in mind. They also believe that their site will look like everyone else’s and not meet their unique needs.
Developers and designers also get concerned with templates, unsure if content editors will put the correct types of content in pre-built components. Sites that the development and design team spent a lot of time building can end up looking unprofessional if the templates aren’t used properly. No one wins in this scenario.
Let’s first dispel the myth that using templates means your site will look like everyone else’s. When we talk about templates, we aren’t talking about simple differences in colors and fonts. Our Lectronimowebsite solution takes advantage of Drupal’s modularity and Panelizer to deliver different frameworks that solve common UX mistakes, and still allows creativity when it comes to content.
The Lectronimo templates are built for many different components that can be mixed and matched to highlight your best content, and they don’t require you to strictly adhere to a formula. People with lots of videos aren’t limited by the page structure, and people with complex written content have various ways to display that information so that users can scan and explore -- without feeling like they’re reading a novel.
