In order to effectively edit your template beyond simply changing fonts and colors in the variable definition section, you'll need to know (or be willing to learn) some things about CSS and the Blogger XML schema. It will likely take some studying of the existing XML setup and some experimenting to make the improvements you're looking for. As you make changes, you might want to keep a backup copy of your last working template so you don't have to go back to work from the original template file if you mess something up.
The easier, simpler and more preferable way to install your new template is to login to the admin area (backend) of your Joomla website (the /administrator directory, from where you manage all aspects of your site) and upload it from there. You can do this by opening the 'Extensions' tab and clicking on the 'Upload and Install' link after selecting the template from your computer. It should be uploaded and installed in a minute (usually in a few seconds after you click on the upload link). And, that's it! You have just uploaded and installed a new Joomla template on your website. The next thing you may want to learn maybe be how to modify the template to suit your planned theme for the website!
I begin with the XML file as this is the file that will need to contain the instructions for Joomla to install the file, this files can become a stock standard copy and paste for the templates you construct, however if there any files that were used in the previous template and not in the new template you will need to remove them from the XML file or you will find a horrible error when you try to install the template in the backend of Joomla.
Joomlajunkie.com is an example of a "club" website where you can become a member of joomlajunkie and then you will have access to several different templates with unique and stylish features and layouts. The hits per layout are absolutely amazing, so you know that that same layout and style is definitely being used across the internet.
Consider goals and objectives- A specific goal or objective should be the driving force behind getting the right template. If you don't know what to expect from customers, or worse yet, what to deliver to them, then this is a clear example of misplaced priorities that may result in a failure. Anyone building a website should always remain focused on what is being sought, and not just what they think should be done.
Understanding each type of template will allow you to make an educated choice for your business. A flash template is a great way to show creative artwork or showcase your photos. A Cascading Style Sheet or CSS template has been designed to work on multi-platform (different devices) and on multi-browsers. This means no matter what you are viewing the web page on it will look perfect. HTML templates can give you an attractive easy to use layout that will allow you to maintain the web template to your liking. This is great for the website that needs to insert a lot of text on their page. There are also templates that are geared for creating online stores and shops to sell your products called osCommerce templates. Flash intro templates that are pre-made designs that are a great introduction to your website. Last but not least are the Flash animated templates that contain some flash and some non-flash parts. Along with the animated parts you can add buttons, banners, sound, and images. So think about what you need in a webpage and then make your choice.
