Default How To Build Websites Faster

As a webmaster I periodically build and rebuild
many websites.
To make my job easier and create websites faster
I need lots of website templates and graphical
images.
I have recently run a search in google and found
a great collection of professional freeware website
templates.
You can grab it absolutely free right now:

There are a ton of free template & graphic sites out there (and some not so free) but you want to be careful what you download.

For someone experienced and just looking for a husk to use, abuse and remodel they can be mighty handy. But if you don't have hand coding HTML knowledge you could end up with more than you bargained for. Things a WYSIWYG editor won't show you unless you know where to look.

Some industrious folks sneak in some code/text that you may not want hidden behind the scenes - usually something innocent such as the original coders info, sometimes not so innocent.

Another caution is that the free template may not actually be free, back in the day a problem I came across more than once were templates submitted by the owner to build an initial rep/get the word out and later the owner wanted it back (ya oh-kay) and sometimes a 3rd party (for various reasons) submitted a pay template.

The bad thing about them, at face value, they get over-used/abused.

Graphics are not always free either, so you want to ensure that they are free reign before using them on a site.

Not trying to be a downer, just a word of caution. Sometimes it is to good to be free

I use free templates all the time. Been doing it for years. I do work with them with an html editor, and have never seen any problem code, other than at times a "please keep my name and link at the bottom" kind of message.

Here is where I've gotten dozens of them. On the right is a menu of free templates, many others are for sale. Stick to the right and there are hundreds of free templates.

they are one of the best - I use to manage the site for JimWorld and cleaned up all the templates they had a couple years ago - that's were I discovered the hidden gems in some of the templates, and templates submitted that should not have been.

Sorry Jim isn't with us any more. He was something special.

Yeah, I started downloading from Jim's World in the late 90's, early 2000's. They were some pretty basic sites, then. And they were loaded with junk code. But that's history. What's there now is good stuff.

I get an 404 error also, so I removed the url in the original post.

My thumbs up goes to http://www.freesitetemplates.com/templates/ also. Crash did a ton of work going through the templates there and is a big reason it is worthwhile. Just stick to the right menu for the free ones as pete said, there are paid ones there now - but that's happened over the years to provide a stream of revenue for the site... a good thing.

Anyone else know of any sites with free templates ... that aren't your own...
