jQuery templates Vs static templates: The underlying story

It is not the time to go ordinary in any aspect of life! Obviously the trend of the online presence has to be the same. When looks does matter, you can hardly think of static templates to build your website with! And more importantly if you can get some of the best dynamic effects just choosing jQuery templates, why you just think of little fast loading and some savings on the costs?

While working as a freelance graphic designer, clients ever want to know from me which templates would be better for their websites? I do tell them some of the best features of jQuery templates in comparison to static templates. Here I am trying to tell you people some facts about these two layout types:

  • Little fascination on dynamic design: If you do not like to make your web pages very much plain and static in look, you should choose jQuery templates. You would love to see some catchy dynamic touch in designs for using jQuery. Without going for expensive Flash effects, you can get some nice dynamism of javascript animations through the huge jQuery library. But your wish of having some colorful effects without animation can easily be fulfilled with static templates for sure.

  • Cross browser compatibility is no headache: While working, we have found that static layouts create some tough issues while making the templates (missing) cross browser compatible. But at the time of using jQuery layouts there is hardly any issue as all JavaScripts in the library comes compatible. So why waste times with the static ones!

  • Plug-ins work very nice with jQuery templates: For various reasons your website developers has to use the plug-ins in your sites. And many a times complains come from the developers that the static templates are not working fine. While the jQuery made templates almost do not create any problem with plug-ins functioning.

  • Maintaining standard compliance is important : It is found that using the jQuery templates validation and standardization is no problem. jQuery effects are XHTML, CSS validated through W3C. While using static templates designers and developers have to work hard to make everything properly validated.

  • Fast loading & easy update is a matter of consideration: You may be thinking of a low cost design and hiring comparatively less experienced designers to get your templates designed. In this case static templates turn good as updating those are easy. Again static and plain layouts comparatively can be made to load fast. jQuery templates can be little complicated to handle if the designers are not that much experienced. You should not end up losing time, labor and money.

Hope the above points have made it clear to you how is the scenario incase you want to know what is gone be the result in the tussle of jQuery templates Vs static templates. Finally I can tell you, it completely depends on the affordability and desire of you on choosing one type of template for your site. But whatever the choice, while choosing designer or their work, you must have a look at their web and graphic design portfolio to know how much capable they are to provide you jQuery templates or static templates. One thing more, it is not that you can not get the jQuery based templates in affordable price! You only have to search a little on internet – that is all.
