A "look" or design for your website created by a web designer in HTML using commons tools like Macromedia DreamWeaver with a few special tags. A site can have multiple frameworks for different sections. They can also be changed quickly so a site can evolve its look without impacting the content.
Frameworks are found in the /Frameworks directory and can be changed by logging in as an administrator and clicking on Advanced. The most common are home.htm and default.htm.
This is a command that can be inserted into page content, a framework, or a template to display information. It can pull a random list of pages, or specific information such as creating a navigation bar.

A page type. These give fuctionality such as calendars, discussion lists, and more. A template is written in XSL and takes more skill than creating a Framework. Invisible Gold starts with a library of templates you can use. There are also custom templates written for individual sites.
