[TYPO3] Multiple Templates on One Site

well if you create each of your different templates in html/css and get 
them using the same marks then there is an easy way that I quite like.

you show the user three columns in the BE to edit and let them decided 
which layout they want, and let them add content into the right and main 
column for that type of layout and into all three columns for that type 
of layout, etc. Then if they go to edit the page header, and change the 
page type from standard to advanced they will find a layout selector box.

You can also add more options (and of course rename options there if you 
want) for the layout if you need more than four.

then in your typoscript template just put a few simple conditions in to 
check this selector and use a different html template depending on this 
selector box.

done, and all the ts work should atkea bout 30min.

handling the navigation can be done using the same selector box check - 
simple really. Now if you co this route you will need to look at tsref 
on conditionals and the globalVar section, and also tsconfig to 
add/rename these options if you want to do that.
