Mpllc, have you considered paying a professional a few hundred bucks to develop some really professional looking templates?
I think it's important to offer a mix of ugly and slick looking
templates (given that some ugly templates seem to do particularly well)
but for all the $$$ that's being made, maybe a lot more could be coming
in if you spent a few bucks to develop some nicer looking ones for your
affiliates to use.
P.S. are there any options available aside from the ones here - templates.mpllc.net

We've got some really basic templates that require a little effort to
personalize. You can also purchase your own template from any of the
many sites that offer them, then all you have to do is plug in a few
snippets of PHP code and you've got your very own personalized Health
Solutions Network template.
If you examine the index.php file in our PHP template, you can easily
identify the code in among the HTML and copy it directly over into your
template. I'm here to help if you need assistance or more specific
But yes, it's a good idea and one we're toying with. We've got a lot on
the table and I'd like to see a library of 20 or so professionally
designed templates in the near future.

In my own sites, I developped a skinning system. Each template has certain areas that get filled in by the script. If u define something similar, people could easily use 3rd party templates or their own with your backend software. It can be done quite simply and easily.

Our system is actually set up that way currently. On
http://templates.mpllc.net, you can see in the large textbox at the
bottom that each portion of the template that needs to be replaced by a
menu or dynamically generated body has a tag something like %name%,
%product%, %body%, %footer%, etc.
If you plug those tags into your own template, then paste the HTML from
your template into the text box at the bottom of the tempalte
generator, an HTML site will be generated using your template.
The PHP system is similar, but not quite as simple. If you can
differentiate between PHP and HTML and perhaps understand basic PHP,
you can copy the php out of the index.php file and plug it into your
own template. Keep the supporting php files where they are and your
template will work perfectly with our code.
