Procure: This is where you go out there and get the best Joomla templates that you can get for your website. There are technically 3 types of Joomla templates that are available to you, going by the cost of getting them and the resulting quality. (Yes, the old 'you get what you pay for' saying applies here, too). These templates are: a. Free Joomla Templates: These are the ones that are out there that anyone can install and use on their sites. They mostly come with strings attached. They are either ad-supported, require live links to the template designer's website or a combination of both. b. Commercial Joomla Templates: These are for sale and have none of the strings associated with free Joomla templates attached. You can buy commercial (or premium) Joomla templates one at a time, in packages or through monthly subscriptions to Joomla Template Clubs. The commercial ones also have more template customization options than the free ones and usually look and feel far more professional than the free ones for obvious reasons: you paid money for these ones. c. Custom-Designed Joomla Templates: This is when you approach a template designer, give them information about the what you need and have them make a Joomla template just for you. This usually costs a little higher than the commercial templates as they are tailored to your particular needs and custom-made for your delight and ego, so to say.
Social networking has become the order of the day with most people. Due to this, it is possible to create your own website courtesy of free Joomla templates. This template entails a clean, neat and modern design that suits its function and also built with maximum flexibility. There are several templates that are available on this template making it possible to choose on one that will heed to your needs.
A website template is almost like a hybrid creation, perfect for online businesses because it is so flexible. With a template you have the best of both worlds - the professional image and functionality that normally come from a website designed by a hired designer coupled with the affordability and flexibility of a DIY web design project. One such website template company I found that offers reasonably priced, quality templates is http://templatedogma.com/.
Upload and Install: Once you have the template on your computer, the next step is to upload it to your website. You can do this manually by logging onto your Joomla hosting account's Control Panel (from where you usually manage files, emails, check websites stats, etc. You get the point! ) You will then go the (from where you manage the files on your website), navigate to the directory where you installed Joomla, click on the folder where the Joomla templates are stored and upload the new Joomla template to the same folder.
If you continue to search, you will find many more design template sites out there. Because this is an open source software, anyone can write modules, components, plugins, and templates that will work with the software. The initial download of the core software will give you the core components and necessary items to get you started. You can then build functionality with different extensions, such as templates, plugins and the alike. This is exactly why the available options for the Joomla software is widely available.
Themejoomla.com offers commercial templates as well. For a single download, most templates cost $25. This is actually a fairly cheap and reasonable price for the template when you consider the amount of time and effort that it takes to create such a network of files and extensions that interact with each other to ensure that all aspects of the website work together and is designed the exact way that you want. Also, getting the website to work the way that you want is also difficult. $25 is a good price for a template. There is no limit to how long you can use a template. You can use the same template for years to come, so a $25 dollar investment for long term, unlimited use, is cheap.
