Paid templates have licenses also. They may restrict the template to one use per fee. It it usually stated that you may not repackage the template and sell it for yourself. The license of the paid template usually allows you to use the template and claim the design as your own. One service that I have seen sells templates under a more liberal license which gives extended uses and greater privileges. Be sure to follow the restrictions in your template's license for your own peace of mind.
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 internet is filled with websites that offer web templates. All that you need to do is insert a keyword like ‘corporate web templates’ in Google or yahoo! to get a SERP crammed with web template providers. But finding quality templates from this crap is a bit difficult. A template many look glossy on your screen but may contain bad coding and low grade graphics. Some may be cheap but will have bad or no service associated. So how to find the best web templates in this heap load? The best way is to ask your-self these seven questions before making a buying decision.
Similar to PSD files and Photoshop, templates that advertise Flash elements also require their own editor. It is beyond the scope of this article to discuss the wisdom of using Flash in the first place, but as a general rule of thumb, keep Flash use to minimum. Unless the template is for a complete Flash site, it will likely contain a "non-Flash" version of the template. Generally Flash is used for navigation and headers in templates, so if don't wish to use the Flash elements, check to see if there is a "non-Flash" version that uses gif/jpeg graphics instead. Otherwise a Flash editor will be required as well as some more time and effort to learn the editor and Flash. Ironically, templates can be a useful learning tool for Flash, since seeing how they are laid out and scripted can provide an understanding of how the animations work.
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.
Web templates range in price depending on the type of templates, terms of usage, package deals, membership deals, files provided etc. Typically a professional template with non-exclusive rights could cost you anything between $20 to $100. This is way lower as compared to what a web designer would ask you for designing your website, not to mention the time factor. Copyrighted templates with exclusive rights could cost you anywhere between $350 to $1800 per template. Some template providers like http://www.buytemplates.net can offer you high quality templates for much lower costs.
