Guys,

Ok really new to this can just about put a html site together ;-)

I am looking at these admin themes and thinking i like that one and that one and so on but to be honest i have no idea how i would use it or what it does ;-)

Example for me to login i suppose i would have to set up a database which is fine?

they stae they create pages and so on how would that work as it is not a CMS ?

Apologies if i is being a bit thick lol

Regards

Stuart

The Html Admin themes think of like “templates” for developers to integrate into there own CMS all the pages and buttons are just for show

Yeah, you would have already been a great coder (like I like to think I am) and built a CMS and just need help with the UI of it, and that’s where admin themes come in.

And there is some FANTASTIC admin themes on here.

As an author who creates Admin Skins, hopefully I can answer your question a little better.

Think of them as a skin for a developer to then add the funtionality. For example all the elements such as forms and buttons are already there, ad the developer then goes in and adds in his code to do things like database updates, deletes, uploads etc.

Generally speaking developers tend to buy these, if you come accross a good developer who can also design they are worth their weight in gold.

I develop (12 years of coding and 5 years as a solutions architect for web applications company, plus a Bachelors in CS) and I design so that I can keep my brain exercised in other areas. However, my design is weaker for sure.

I guess my point is given that I am overweight, if I am worth my weight in gold, I am rich! I need to melt myself down and sell me. :D
