The Inside Scoop on WP-EZ 2.0 Page Templates

Written by Paul Steinbrueck

Two weeks ago we launched version 2.0 of our WP-EZ Website Builder, which enables you to build an amazing WordPress website quickly and easily.

Last week we gave you The Inside Scoop on WP-EZ 2.0 Themes – a look at the 8 new themes that are only available with WP-EZ 2.0.

Today we’re going to take a look at one of the most exciting new features in WP-EZ 2.0 – Page Templates

The Problem with a Blank Canvas

Most of the time when building a website with WordPress or a website builder, after the initial setup or installation, there is only one page – the homepage – and its blank. This means it’s up to website administrator to:

  • Decide all of the pages the website needs
  • Create all of the content for those pages (text, images, media)
  • Layout and format all of the content in a way that looks good, is easy to read, and helps the visitor accomplish their goal

If you’re a marketing guru or an experienced website developer, no problem. But if building and managing your website is your second hat (or third or fourth), this can be a difficult assignment.

As a result, I see a lot of websites that are…

  • Lacking important pages/information
  • Poorly written with low-quality images
  • Ugly and difficult to read

Page Templates Solve These Problems

A page template is a pre-made web page that includes sample content laid out and formatted in an attractive way.

When you start with page template, all you have to do is replace the sample text with your text and replace the sample images with your images and you have a beautiful, informative web page. This saves the website administrator a ton of time. And the end result is overwhelmingly positive. Web pages created with page templates almost always come out looking better than pages built from scratch.

Check out this video that explains and shows you WP-EZ 2.0 page templates:

WP-EZ 2.0 Themes Loaded with Page Templates

Every theme we’ve created for WP-EZ 2.0 comes loaded with 6-8 page templates for the most common types of pages that type of organization needs.

For example, the Center Church theme comes with page templates for a Homepage, About, Connect (ministries), Sermons, News, Give, and Contact.

This means when you build a website with WP-EZ 2.0, you start right out of the gate with 6-8 pages that are well designed

Design is a plan for arranging elements in such a way as best to accomplish a particular purpose. –Charles Eames
