There are many different ways a site can be deployed. Sites typically fall into two broad categories. There are those that use a content management system and there are those that are custom-made. Popular content management systems such as WordPress, Joomla, and Drupal all have the capability of using templates. The template simply control the appearance of the website, while the core files of the CMS maintain the content and other features of the site. Custom made sites can also utilize templates that are based on cascading style sheets, Flash and other web technologies. Regardless of how a site is deployed, there are free templates that can be used to enhance the visual quality of a site.
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 key benefit of a template parameter based control is template management. Rather than require multiple templates for the same site, you can have one template with a variety of layouts. This technique is a real time-saver when you need to make changes to the template; instead of updating several templates with the same modification - and processing the changes in the site - you only need to alter one. Moreover, template parameter-based layouts allow master designers to hand off carefully crafted templates to be implemented by junior designers or even those with no design skills whatsoever, like Contribute users.
Website templates are basically ready-made web pages that you can download from a template design company. The HTML code is ready to go - all you have to do is choose a template that suits your business and customer base, download it and then edit according to your specifications. Most companies showcase all the available designs on their site for you to preview before downloading, so you'll know exactly what you are buying beforehand.
CMS has one more feature that is important to mention. It can be used like a basement for web templates. So, more and more web developers decide on CMS while creating their templates. Taking into consideration that Joomla is a comfortable, well-coded and easy-manageable CMS it was chosen to be the basement of Joomla Templates. These templates have been launched by the biggest and most reliably templates' provider Template Monster and they become very popular among those people who wish to build an outstanding web site.
It is possible to fall into a number of design traps if you are not completely comfortable with web design. Those who have at one time used Microsoft FrontPage are aware that it is possible to build certain constructions that look the same but have different construction. This may look good when viewed only with Microsoft Internet Explorer. The same page view with Firefox or another browser may find that it is all out of shape and balance. The design skill that goes into the building of a good template will save a person from this danger. The template will have proper structure and consistency in its design. It will probably have commented areas which show where to type in the text. This consistency makes a good website and saves us from the pain of getting negative comments on our work.
