    I'm trying to come up with a design for a business theme website project.
    the site has general appearance implemented by a master template and several content pages that look different from each other.
    for example, one has 3 columns of text, another has only only wide, third page has several small text boxes etc.
    i thought my solution is to create each inner content page its own unique child template that will inherit the overall appearance from the master template and implement the unique css design for that specific page.

    so I'll have the master template, and another 10 child templates for every content page.

    is this the correct approach ?
    is there another option ?

    Hello noam,

    This really depends on the content of your website and how the information should be presented to your customers. I would create one maser page that will be used for the root/group pages and then another master page for all child pages which will have the same structure - especially the navigation controls. Thus, the customer will be able to find some information very fast without searching through the all website with different pages.

    Best wishes,
