    My e-commerce site is on webs.com. I don't know html so I am limited to what their templates allow me to do.

    So you want us to tell you if you did a good job using someone else's design?

    I am not a website designer. I was looking for advice.

    Advice ? On using templates ? I don't understand. I rarely review sites, as most developers and designers put a lot of effort into something original, and I don't want to hurt their feelings.

    So rate a template that you didn't even design ?

    Is this forum only for designers? I thought I could learn something here.

    Well, you posted to a ratings and review forum, and did not ask a question, so I'm not sure what it is you want to learn. You can learn here, certainly - but as the name says - it is webdesignforums.net

    We welcome all who want to learn - but what is it you want to learn? If you are limited to using a template, there is not much you can do about the design.

    If you want to learn HTML and CSS so you can design your own, we will be happy to help you find all the resources you need to learn it.

    I thought I could add things to my website even though it is a template. There is an edit feature that uses HTML. I am learning that maybe that can not be done.

    Suggest that if you want to learn, first decide what you want to learn, w3schools is a good place to start.

    Look at HTML and CSS resources. Then try some things that you read about, if you have problems understanding or implementing, come back to the forums , and post your question in the appropriate forum.

    This is the rate and review section, you only use this one if you have the site up and want people to tell you how good, bad or whatever.

    When you post a question, general questions with no specifics will get few answers.

    Actually, you are learning something...you're learning just how restrictive templated hosting truly is. It's great for a My First Website sort of deal, but as you grow and expand your website and figure out the things you want in it, you will inevitably outgrow your plan. At that point, what you're going to have to do is what Webzarus said...figure out what you're trying to accomplish with your site, work toward learning those things, do as much as you can on your own through research and experimentation (no matter what, this is always the best way) and use forums such as this one to supplement your knowledge and fill in any missing pieces.

    I joined this forum after just barely learning how to hand code HTML and I was just starting on CSS. I've been using this forum as a place to learn and get tips. Now, I'm building websites that are 100x better than before.

    If you want to truly learn about web design, stick around here and you will learn a lot. As past comments have mentioned, W3Schools is one of the best resources online for learning. If you study/work hard, stay active on this forum, and research on W3Schools, in a few months, you won't need poorly designed templates.
