    I see allot of "free" web templates out on the Internet. I have a friend who had a student build his website - now he wants a sophisticated look. How do the web templates work? Can you add after the website is built? Are they simply a skin you add? Or must you move the capsules in HTML?

    Sorry for the simplistic question.

      It depends on the type of web template.   Many are Wordpress templates in which you need to install wordpress on your webhost.  If you use these, you have to be comfortable using Wordpress.

      Others Web templates are coded HTML designs.  They are simply skins.   It you want to customize the template or put in your own content, you still need to know how to code HTML.

      Web templates are meant for web designers and web professionals to use and customize for their clients.   Unless their clients are web technical and know a bit of Wordpress or HTML, then the clients can use it themselves.   

      But for a website owner who is not familiar with HTML, it might be difficult to implement web templates.
