What are database templates?

They are default options for your database. If you want to see examples of an RSS feed, the “Styled Blog” will give you an example, if you want a look at a full-blown brochure website the “Roasters” template provides an example. If you want to create your layouts, snippets, and pages from scratch, use “Empty”. Whichever you use, they are merely starting points.
