Being a template developer myself it takes a lot of things to create a perfect design that is not only up to the need of your client but also satisfies his users. So, those who are looking for answers to all these questions then today in this article, we will be answering your all questions and more importantly will focus on What Skills are Required to Develop a Blogger Template.

What is a Web Template?

First of all, it is important to know what actually a template is. A template is a one page system that is used to create multiple pages with same set of design. It is possibility allowing you to display a large set of content with similar looking scheme. A Blogger template also uses same technique and in blogger things are pretty much the same.

What it requires to develop a Blogger Template:

To become a Blogger Template developer you need to know a few set of web developing languages because without knowing them you cannot create or develop a template from scratch. Following are the set of web developing languages you need to learn first.
  1. HTML Language: You least need to have command over HTML or newest HTML5 because the whole template revolves around it. This can be learned by doing different free or paid courses online. However, I would recommend you to start learning it from w3schools.com because they have comprehensive information about it. 

  2. CSS Language: CSS or Cascading style sheet, it is used to describing and formatting of a webpage. Without CSS, a page would be so dull there is certainly possibility then even if you are master in HTML and you don't know CSS then you remain unable to develop a quality template.

  3. XML Language: Blogger doesn’t support PHP, you can read more about the limitations of blogger. However, to function it uses XML language so to be create a blogger template you should also have least average skills on this language as well. 

  4. JavaScript Language:  JavaScript comes in last because it is mostly used for high functioning features. However, you can still create a fair enough quality blogger template without it. However, if you want to work on high scale like professional then it is must. 

  5. Photoshop Skills: Every professional designer or developer first creates a design of his template on Photoshop and once he is satisfied with its quality, he converts it to a template. Therefore, it is also essential for you to learn Basics to advance Photoshop to call yourself a professional. 
Once you got command in the things mentioned above, nobody could stop you from developing a real quality professional blogger template. Do let us know, if we have missed any point.
