Discussion: What Makes Up a Good Website Template?
I have been using lots and lots of templates (or themes) during my two years of blogging. There are so many good templates out there but there are few that I really want to use on my website. That’s because for me a good theme needs the following: good layout, good typography, highly visible navigation and most of all enough white space. I also think that many web designers do a nice job when designing a theme but they do a poor job when optimizing it for speed for example.
What do you think? What is important to you?
