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
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 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
Content Management System called
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
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.

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.
