A layout XML file is a file that describes the look and feel of a web page. It’s the file that tells the browser how to present the page.
Well, it’s mostly what they call the “theme” file, but it can also be called the layout file if you want to be able to change it yourself. The layout XML file contains all the things you may need to change to fit your site into design or style guidelines. If your theme doesn’t have any content in it, you should edit it in the theme editor.
If you have content in your layout file then you can use it for everything on your site, but if you don’t then you’ll need to edit it.
As you can see in the screenshot above, the layout XML file doesn’t contain any content, so you can use it for everything on your site. The only thing you can do with it is use it for header, footer, navigation, and to change the look of your site.
This is a very important point. You don’t need to edit the layout XML file. You can use it for all of the HTML in your site, but you don’t have to. That said, if you do edit it, make sure to make your changes so that none of the tags are used or ignored.
In the same way that you don’t need to edit the layout XML file, if you use it for any of the HTML in your site, you don’t need to edit it. As a matter of fact, you probably don’t even need to edit it at all. That said, you should edit it to make it look as cool as possible… that’s why I included the
I know that you have a website with a cool layout, but like so many things, too many times you get it wrong. What you’ll need to do is remove the
tags, but leave the
tags. Then you can use HTML to create the navigation bar, and replace the

You’re right, and you should. You’re not going to be able to avoid editing the layout file if you want it to look cool, so I included a copy of the layout XML file if you want to use it. However, I recommend you do not edit the tags. For your purposes, removing them should not be necessary, but you may want to add some CSS to keep things in place.
This is why you see so many people using layouts in their websites. The problem is because of how easy it is to remove the tags, people don’t do it. It’s a problem because layouts are often the most “stylish” ones and are the ones that people use the most, so it becomes a “what should I do?” problem.
I agree with you that there are other things that can be put in the layout, but I would not recommend it. It is something that you should always do when using layouts, and I would not recommend it. The reason is because the layout can only be changed by adding more tags. If you want to change the background color, it would have to be done by adding a tag in the xml file. If you want to change the text color, then it is already in the tag.
