Choosing an HTML/CSS Template or an HTML/CSS Theme
When choosing between an open-source CSS template or a theme that you can use with a CMS such as WordPress, you must know certain things.
One important thing to know is that templates require a higher knowledge of HTML and CSS code.
Themes today are used with a CMS and help with a lot of the complex coding by having so-called page builders.
Introduction to HTML For New Template Users
If you are new to HTML, these ten attributes will give you a brief overview of using and reading elements in our template source codes.
Example: <div class="example">This is a div with a class attribute.</div>
Example: <div id="unique">This is a div with an id attribute.</div>
style : The style attribute adds styles to an element, such as color, font, size, and more. It is a good practice to keep all the styles in the stylesheet and use class or id to apply them.
Example: <p style="color:green;">This is a paragraph with a style attribute.</p>
src : The src attribute is required for elements like <img> , <script> , <iframe> , etc. It specifies the source URL of embedded content.
Example: <img src="templated.jpg" alt="An image of the Templated.co website">
alt : The alt attribute is used in the <img> element and provides an alternative text for an image if the image cannot be displayed. We recommend using the recommended image type for SEO, JPEG, to keep your image file size low.
Example: <img src="image.jpg" alt="An example image">
href : The href attribute is used in <a> , <link> , <base> , etc., elements. It provides the URL of the linked resource.
Example: <a href="https://templated.co/">Visit Templated.co</a>
value : The value attribute is used in several input elements, for example, <button>. It provides the initial value for those elements.
Example: <input type="text" value="Default text">
placeholder : The placeholder attribute is used in <input> and <textarea> elements. It hints to the user of what can be entered in the field.
Example: <input type="text" placeholder="Enter your name">
disabled : The disabled attribute is a boolean attribute. When present, it specifies that an input element should be disabled. A disabled input element is un-clickable and un-editable.
Example: <input type="text" disabled>
readonly : The readonly attribute is a boolean attribute. It sets the input field to read-only (it can be focused and text selected, but not edited).
Example: <input type="text" disabled value="You can't change this">
Important to remember: HTML attributes should always be included in an HTML element's start or opening tag.
Introduction to CSS For New Template Users
If you are new to CSS, these ten CSS properties will go a long way when working with our free CSS templates.
- color : This property sets the color of the text. Example:
background-color : This property sets the background color of an element. Example:
font-size : This property sets the size of the font. Example:
font-family : This property specifies the font for text in an element. Example:
font-family: Arial, sans-serif;
text-align : This property sets the horizontal alignment of text. Example:
margin : This property sets the margin area on all four sides of an element. Example:
padding : This property sets the padding area on all four sides of an element. Example:
border : This property sets the border around an element. Example:
border: 2px solid black;
width and height : These properties set the width and height of an element. Example:
height: height: 300px;
display : This property sets how an element is displayed. Common values are
none, etc. Example:
Important to remember: CSS can be added to HTML documents in 3 ways: Inline - by using the
style attribute inside HTML elements, Internal - by using a
<style> block in the
<head> section, or External - by using an external CSS file. The best way to add CSS, especially for large-scale apps, is to use an external stylesheet (.css).
