Template Creator is far above what I have tested. It is very easy to configure and learning curve is quite short. You can modify modify each position by just click on a menu where you find position design, background, fonts etc you want to change. You may say, too easy ! If you really know what you do in writing css code, you can do it as well in a "custom css" zone.
Support from the developer is very good. He is really willing to answer questions raised in using the tool, although, even for a novice, most can be self-learned.
Moreover, you can modify your created template event after site is published, with no risk to crash everything.
It looked an interesting tool so I took the plunge and bought it. I then watched the videos on how it works then started to develop templates for myself.
I have now used it for just over a month and only wish I had discovered it sooner as I would not have wasted momney joining template clubs. Incredibly it costs less than 1 months subscription to a template club and you can build as many templates as you wish.
It took me a couple of days to get to grips with this tool but I am now combining it with MaxiMenu and create some fantastic templates.
Note: If you want to advance your project without wasting time and in an intelligent way, I can tell you that the first thing is to get this excellent extension
thank you for your great review :)
Clients really like the templates I've build for them with TemplateCreator :-) Keep up the good job!
I absolutely LOVE this!! I can make it do whatever I need it to, make it look however I want and achieve a fantastic looking template in a few hours (this is for a very detailed design) for my wifes business site it took 3 hours from domain creation to a live site of 11 pages, slideshows and faq and links.
Quite simply if you are like me and know enough to be dangerous but lack the delivery skill then this is an absolute must.
Thank you for creating this!
Keep up the good work!
An important fact to mention is how well this package integrates with other products that he has to offer. Template Creator, for example, provides the ability to create impressive menus. MaximenueCK is an added bonus to create stupendous menus. He provides this (and other packages) for free and only charges for the documentation. He may not be the best business man in the world because he will give help for free rather than insist that one purchase the manuals (oops, maybe I shouldn't have said that). But that is one reason that I would strongly recommend any of his products--he puts the person above profit and creates a loyal following in the process.
thank you for your great review :)
This extension enables you to build your own template instead of hiring a socalled specialist to do it for you or to download any premolded template to press your content into.
Do it yourself! If you have an idea of the design that you want, this extension will make it easy for you to realize it. Once you know your way around with padding and margin its a breeze to make your own template.
And it is not so expensive too. The advantage is, that if you want to change something later you can easily do it on your own instead of asking somebody to do it for you. You have full control over your website including the template.
I had a question about positioning the readmore button, so i contacted the developer via their contact form and they helped me immediately.
Besides the speed of response of the support!
In short, a top, highly recommended.
Ced a big thank you.

Support response time is amazingly fast! Very helpful...
Well done CEd for a great templating system and your super quick response and help.
Overall verry good
thank you for your review, but I don't understand why you write this is here. The JED is not a support center, if you had contacted me before I would have told you why this happen :)
Next time contact me first please.
