One of the things that makes it worthwhile to design and develop websites using the Joomla CMS is the endless supply of high quality Joomla templates (free, commercial and even custom-made) that are available to you to both use and edit based on your needs. You can then use these to make your site look and feel as special, fresh and interactive as you want it without needlessly spending money in the process. Here, I will show you a quick and easy 3-step process to getting and installing Joomla templates on your website. I call it the 'PDI Formula'. Don't worry, it has nothing to do with complicated mathematical or philosophical algorithms or geek talk.;) If you are ready, here are the steps:
If you have used flexible plastic to make your quilting template, it should hold up for multiple uses. However, if you have used paper or cardboard or any such material whose edges will wear out quickly, be sure to replace these templates very frequently. Paper templates are good for one use only whereas cardboard or posterboard templates can be used several times before becoming worn out and unusable. Remember, precision when marking and cutting your units is crucial to the successful piecing together of the quilt block. It is best not to try to save time and money by reusing slightly worn templates - they will only result in inaccuracy which will produce disappointing results.
A purchased template must be edited in order to fill in your own content, images, logo, contact information, etc. Custom flash or HTML coding should also be done in order to make the template truly match the theme of your website. Many of the web templates you found on different sites might look similar to a certain point, and are often overwhelmingly corporate feel. Also remember you are not the only custom who purchase the web template unless you buy an exclusive license of the template (costs thousands!). And even if you do, prior to your purchase other customers might have already purchased that web template and have used it. This might not be a great problem for a personal home page. But many corporate or serious Internet business websites would need template customization beyond just replacing text and images.
The ideal place to get free Joomla templates is online sites that deal specifically with Joomla, but it will all depend on the specific needs that have to be satisfied and the type of template to be used. There are many sites that offer these services, so doing extensive research about what they specifically offer is crucial since not all offer the same type of templates. If you get the wrong template, it will need a converter and this will be too costly and time-consuming.
In addition, businesses that want to buy a template no other website will use in the future (a unique site) should purchase a copyrighted template. When you opt for a copyrighted template you receive all rights to the site design and can be sure it will not be re-sold to another business. On the other hand, the rights of non-copyrighted templates remain with the template company, and as a result, anyone can buy the same one. If this won't interfere with your business buy non-copyrighted templates and save some money, but if you want an entirely unique site, spend a little more for a copyrighted site that won't be found anywhere else on the web.
