A good idea it's to explain for those of us who are beginners in our field what are the differences between this 2 types.
What is a multipurpose template?
This type of template can be used as an universal template meaning that is having sometimes so many options that you can build with it almost any type of website.
They come in different shapes, with unlimited colors, different layouts, pages, sliders, tabs, pop-ups and many more other features, but these features doesn't serve a specific purpose for a specific type of business, they don't target any specific niche market and you need to adapt the template to your business need's.
We have a multipurpose template on sale, called Kallos, in which we've put a lot of features to help you build almost any type of business.
What is a niche specific template?
This type of template is created with a specific niche market in mind. All its features are specifically built to serve a purpose.
For example if you need a niche specific restaurant template, this will come with a menu functionality, slider and maybe e-commerce functionality where people can order online. In general only features that are needed for a restaurant website and nothing more.
I've created a poll and the question is: "What type of templates do you prefer?", is it multipurpose or niche templates?
