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.
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:
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.
When you change your template by choosing Pick New Template, Blogger's system is intelligent enough to preserve the gadgets you currently have set up. For instance, if you have added some gadgets using the Add a Gadget link on the Layout -> Page Elements page, those gadgets will be preserved in your new template design. I'll discuss later a method for changing your template design that requires more caution.
After you set up your blog, you may decide that you don't like the template so much, or you might just want to give it a fresh look. There are a couple of ways you can change your template. The easiest way is to simply switch to one of the other default templates provided by Blogger. You can switch templates by going to Layout -> Pick New Template from your Blogger account dashboard. You can pick a new template as simply as you selected your initial one. All the information (posts, pictures, and videos) you have already placed on your blog will be retained. Blogger's system separates the actual information (your posts and media) presented on a blog from the way in which the information is presented - your blog's theme.
