What Makes Allwebco Web Templates Better?Unlike most of our competitors' website templates, Allwebco webpage templates are complete downloadable stand alone websites. Each design is setup with multiple pre-formatted web pages, rather than only the one or two pages offered by other template vendors. Contact forms, search forms, dynamic slideshows and photo galleries, shopping carts and jQuery or CSS3 animation, plus many other features are built-in. This saves considerable time during web development. The menu, footer, sidebar and css style files are all global for quick site updates. Menus are plain text. No graphics editing is required. Built in HTML, all stock photos are included and are standard .jpg files that can be edited or replaced. Our websites work with any hosting company and can be edited using any plain text or wysiwyg or html editor.
Advantages of Downloaded Webpage TemplatesWebsite templates downloaded in .zip file format, like Allwebco offers, are complete stand alone or "self contained" websites. This allows the user to freely modify the design to their own personal specifications. With a web builder or content management system your website will be locked into the vendor website making it difficult to move to another hosting company. All designs are ad-free, include no monthly fees and are not linked to, or dependent on, our web site to work on your website. Once downloaded all source code, stock images and files are included exactly as displayed in our on-line samples, read comparison.
Alternately, web site builder programs offered by companies like Squarespace, Wix, Weebly, web.com, Godaddy and others will include monthly fees and a proprietary editing interface to edit their website templates directly on-line though a web browser using their library. Although this may sound convenient, something to keep in mind is that you will most likely spend many hundreds of hours creating and updating your website and you will not have a copy of it anywhere except inside the web builder's program cloud. Because it's proprietary, you will be locked into using a single company provider. If you become dissatisfied with their service you will need to redo your website from scratch with another company.

Check out our mobi-Hybrid® webpage templates for the highest mobile device compatibility. For more details see also optimization for mobile and choosing responsive or a mobile sub-site.
Are your templates SEO configured?Yes. Our web templates all include standard meta tag data as well as image "alt" tags already setup and ready for editing. Title tags, the most important website SEO element are plain text and setup for custom editing. Any other SEO types of codes can also be added like Google Tools code and site map XML files. See our SEO support page.
Can you use CoffeeCup for editing?Yes, our website designs are compatible with the CoffeeCup HTML editor. A free trial download of this software is available. See HTML Editing Software in support for more editing software choices.
Are they compatible with MS Expression Web?Allwebco web templates can be edited with Expression Web. You can import a template into the editor and publish as an Expression Web. While editing, in the "Design" view, you will not see the header or footer because they are global .js files. However, all of the files, can be edited in Expression Web.
Are they editable in Dreamweaver?Yes the web templates are editable in Dreamweaver. You will not see your header and footer when you're editing because the header and footer are global ".js files" that you edit separately in a plain text editor, so you can change all your pages at once. You will see the main body of text and the pictures while editing. View more details on Dreamweaver editing.
Are they editable in Contribute?Yes the web templates are editable in Adobe Contribute. You will not see your header and footer when you're editing because the header and footer are global ".js files" that you edit separately using a plain text editor. You will see the main body of text and images while editing. View the web template getting started support page.
Are they compatible with Frontpage?Although this is older software it still can be used for editing even our newest html5 & css3 responsive designs. You can not change the layout but can edit all text. You will not see your header or footer in Frontpage because these are global files you edit using a plain text editor. Allwebco web templates were not originally created in Frontpage and are not set up as Frontpage "Webs". View a screenshot while editing in Frontpage.
Do I need any special software to set up my web site?Although you can use any wysiwyg editor, Allwebco web templates are so basic that you can customize your entire site using Notepad, Textedit on Mac, or any plain text editor. The only additional software you may need to setup an Allwebco web template is FTP software to upload your pages (Windows Explorer includes FTP capabilities). More info on editors including Free editors. See also FTP uploading details.
Can I replace the template images with my own images?All images used in an Allwebco web template are standard .jpg and .gif pictures. These pictures can be replaced with your own pictures by overwriting the files in the "picts" folder after your download. All the code and graphics used to create the web template are sent along with the download. Click for more image editing details.
Do I need Adobe software to edit the animation or replace images?jQuery animation uses standard linked .jpg images. For Flash animation, Adobe software is not required to update any area on the web templates. With Allwebco web templates, the logo and all text displayed in the Flash animation is controlled by one file named "flash.txt". This file can be easily edited with any text editor to add your company name, slogan and phrases. Any animation included with a template will include "linked" standard .jpg images that you can easily replace with your own standard .jpg images.
Can I use my own logo in the header?All Allwebco web templates feature a graphic logo option. Depending on the model you choose this will either be a yes/no variable you edit to switch from the plain text logo option, or you will need to rename one file and then replace the pre-defined graphic logo image. Instructions are included for all options.
What about browsers that do not support Flash?All Allwebco web templates are HTML websites and most include jQuery animation rather than Flash applications. Every web template includes a graphic logo option so no Flash is required if you choose to setup a non-Flash website. Additionally, designs with Flash include detection to display alternate content in non-Flash supporting web browsers. View the Flash detection for mobile details page.
I am a novice user, are step-by-step instuctions included?We do have many novice users that setup our web templates, however, when setting up an Allwebco web template you will need to learn some HTML editing. Every template includes step-by-step instructions and we also offer a searchable template support center.
Can I add new webpages?Our web templates are flexible enough that you can add as many pages as you want by making copies of any existing template page. Links to new pages can be added to the web template menus or on any of the web template pages including the site map page. Click for support for adding and removing pages and also see editing the menus.
I have very little knowledge of the tools (e.g. Notepad) required to edit your website templates. What kind of struggle am I going to have, time wise, modifying with my copy?
Most people have indicated that our web templates are very easy to use. For a professional, it's usually between 4 and 6 hours. This includes creating some custom graphics. I've see one user setup their entire site in less than 2 hours and I've seen others take weeks. The more computer skills you have the easier it is to setup an Allwebco web template.
If you know exactly what you want to add and will use the web template pretty much "as is" then usually the only obstacle is setting up the contact form and uploading. There are instructions on the help page and info in our template support area to guide you in these areas.
