    How to use login, register or search on the templates?

    I have been getting a lot of e-mails about this question so I'm going to post the answer here on the forum for everyone else too.


    You need a server side scripting language ( PHP, ASP, JSP, ...) and a database (MySQL, PostgreSQL)
    You have to program a script for this. If you can't program a script no problem, just like the website templates for the design part there are ready made things for this too.

    Easy with script templates

    There are solutions for these scripts known as content management systems (CMS).
    Popular examples are Drupal, Joomla or Xoops.
    If you just need a blog you can use wordpress.
    Need an e-commerce website use Zen Cart or osCommerce.
    For a forum you can use PunBB, Vanilla or vBulletin.

    A lot more can be found on http://www.opensourcecms.com all open source and most are free.
    There are also a lot of commercial scripts like the great ExpressionEngine from ellislab.

    Free Website Template Scripts?

    We only have 1 premade template coded for a CMS right now.
    You will need to modify the templates a little to use them with these scripts. You have to learn a little about the script you're using before you can do this.

    If you can wait we will soon be converting a lot our templates to work directly with the most popular scripts like drupal and joomla. However don't hold your breath this will take some time.

    Mimoun made a post!!

    People that use templates from this site are normally new to web design so converting the templates for a CMS would be very hard for them.

    Will be good when we start converting the templates for CMS.
