Prepared templates enable the adaptation of standard templates or the creation of custom templates. This provides an even better visual display, matching your own website and increasing its user-friendliness.
What is a template?
A template is a PHP template file which is called up and then displayed by the plugin. It can be customised to suit your preferences. Also, you can create your own templates. Each template contains standard code, as well as the layout of the function that determines its appearance.
To edit a template, you need to have some programing knowledge in HTML / PHP / CSS, as well as an editor such as Notepad ++, for example.
Here is an actual example of all templates offered by the plugin: https://getaawp.com/docs/article/templates/.
You will find product boxes (standard), grids, tables, lists and widgets.

How do I create my own template?

This provides you with a step-by-step, detailed guide on how to adapt existing templates and how to create new templates with ease.
