Some new to the world of website hosting may find it easy to come across sites that offer the ultimate short cut to a "professional" website. Usually this shortcut will be a template. On screen the template will look great with its images, placeholder text, and unbranded graphics. The lure of the template for the novice user will be strong. Most template sites hit all the right buzzwords, "free", "customizable", "ready-to-use." Unfortunately, to a novice, what they get when they take the bow off their new package may make little to no sense at all. This article will go over the common structure of templates and provide some insight into what skills and programs are needed before a template really can be considered "ready-to-use."
Web designers who have created the free website templates you can find on the Internet know how important it is to project at least a semi-professional look. They know that the hard work and effort you put into attracting visitors is going to go to waste if people are turned off by the design of your website. What makes it even better is these templates, depending on where you get them from, can actually be customized. So you will not necessarily be stuck with a particular look in all cases.
Themes to websites are always effective and valuable in creating internet sites and when it comes to web design templates for creating websites, there are two varieties and they are compensated and absolutely free templates. Both these varieties have their own merits and demerits and the templates that are offered for some compensation are otherwise called as premium website templates. Even though, these templates offer greater features as compared to free templates, the purchaser will have to pay a huge price for these templates. Therefore, people who wish to design their own websites have confusion as to whether to go for a paid or a free template.
Web development and designing is a competitive marketplace so professional used to hone their skills with the time to keep them updated and to win the client's trust. Because of the competition, and desire to get their site completed as soon as possible have lowered the prices of web development and designing. These conditions suggest developers to go for free template to save time and money. It's the myth that free templates are no good but this is not always a case. But premium templates do have their own advantage like quality of presentation, appearance and customization help from the developer. But free templates are obvious option to those who don't want to spent money for the appearance of the website.
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:
A final note on templates in general. Those willing to buy the software, take the time to learn it, and use a template should be aware that many templates are not "well coded." For the most part this may not effect or even matter to the template buyer. They will have a website and it will "work". Anyone who is also attempting to optimize their site for search engine placement, or who wants to make their site more efficient and use less code, should pay attention to the structure of the HTML files provided in the template. Many, though by no means all, templates, use a "tables" based layout that could be improved upon to make it more code efficient and make search engine optimization easier.
