A phpMyDirectory template (theme) is a ready-to-use design for your phpMyDirectory powered website. While phpMyDirectory handles all the content on your web-site, the phpMyDirectory template is the design itself, which is what your visitors view when they come to your web-site.
The major advantage is price: You get a high quality design for as low as $50 USD. You don't have to hire a web designer or web design studio. Second advantage is time frame: It usually takes 2-3 weeks for a good designer to produce a web page of such quality.
