can create your own layout using your knowledge of HTML, a proprietary
WYSIWYG HTML editing programs such as GoLive™ or DreamWeaver™, or one

Once the Layout is
complete, you'll be using Modules to display individual articles and
content elements. Contenido provides its own simple modules for
displaying content; with some knowledge of PHP, however, you'll quickly
be able to extend on these and use your modifications on your website.
Layouts and modules work together in Templates. In a template you determine what contain (modules) will appear in the layout's "containers".
