Dynamic Web Templates (DWTs)

Also known as Dreamweaver Templates

Winning Solutions, Inc. (WSI), a web company based out of Fort Myers, Florida (Southeast) and Ames, Iowa (Midwest) has been actively involved in creating and developing Dynamic Web Templates (DWTs) for clients for years. With a DWT in place, updating content for your website becomes hassle-free. Because the DWT is a separate file from the rest of your pages, changing the look of your site can be achieved without having to edit each page individually.

Dynamic Web Templates are sometimes referred to as DWT's or DreamWeaver Templates.  There are only slight differences in HTML syntax between Dynamic Web Templates and DreamWeaver Templates.  In either case they both serve the same purpose.

Some software programs such as Microsoft FrontPage, Microsoft Expression Web, Adobe's DreamWeaver and Adobe Contribute allow for the creation and use of dynamic web templates to design or redesign an entire website.  Minor training may be required for novice webmasters to fully understand the power of Dynamic Templates, but this training is typically minimal.  WSI can not only provide you with support for your Dynamic Template Website, but can also train you or your staff on how to utilize them.

A Dream Weaver Template can also be used with Adobe's out-of-the-box Content Management System called Adobe Contribute.  Adobe Contribute allows web masters to create new pages from pre existing templates.  This makes the process of content creation quick and easy. Copywriters and web contributors can focus on adding content rather than working with HTML code.

Common Dynamic Web Template Questions

What is a Dynamic Web Template (DWT)?

A DWT is a custom template that is used to give each page of your website a uniform look. The template is created using HTML and CSS coding, and can then be attached to pages within your website, implementing the template on those select pages. The DWT can then be edited, and all pages attached to the DWT are updated as well.

A Dynamic Template System also helps prevent novice users from accessing the code that controls the display of the website.  Areas in the template are marked to show where and what users can edit and what they can't.

I already have a dynamic web template but it's broken or I can't figure out how to implement it. Can you help me?

Anything can be difficult to learn on your own.  WSI offers a full range of training options on various subjects including dynamic web template training. With a short time with one of our dynamic web template trainers you can get past the frustration and on to making your website.

WSI also offers support for all kinds of technology problems.  If you are having problems implementing your web template, give us a call or contact us and let us help you.

How does a Dynamic Web Template (DWT) make my website easier to update?

Within the DWT, the designer can indicate what sections or regions of the template are editable, and deny access to those regions that the designer wishes to keep un-editable. Now, when updates need to be made, whoever is updating the content can only access the necessary regions of the page, and keeps them from accidentally deleting an image or vital piece of code crucial to the design of the page.

Also, if your design changes, it is possible to update just one file to apply a entirely new look to your website.  This can also be used as a way to adapt your site to specials offers or seasonal marketing directions.

Although a Dynamic Web Template (DWT) is close to what I need, is there anything else you would suggest?

For something that is more focused strictly on the updating of content on your page, as well as the organization of that content, you might be interested in a custom content management system. Click here to find out more content managed websites.

WSI also offers custom application development, as well as Microsoft FrontPage and Macromedia Dreamweaver training.

We like what we see and want to begin a relationship with you, however, we're located hundreds of miles away from your office and no where near Iowa or the Midwest - will this work?

We have had, and continue to develop, numerous relationships with clients that are not located around either our Ames Iowa, or Ft. Myers Florida locations. Some of our clients are not even in the Midwest or Southeast.

Depending on the scope of the dynamic web template services required, face to face meetings are not necessary to develop a custom DWT implementation plan. Many of our clients enjoy sitting in the comfort of their own office or home and conducting a phone or shared desktop meeting with one of our trainers, developers or designers.

Our attention to detail and customer service has helped us deliver many systems without ever having a face to face discussion with the client. Contact either our Midwest (Ames, Iowa) office or our Fort Myers, Florida location today for a free consultation or to begin your cut and build process with us.
