Free Joomla templates are available for those who need to make websites or blogs. These templates works in way that they guide the user on how to go about the whole process effectively. In fact, it is believed that you can be able to create your website or blog in less than an hour as long as you have relevant information on how to go about it.
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.
Another option is to have someone edit the template for you. If you really have no clue when it comes to web design, even with a prepared template, most website template companies also offer a custom design service. This keeps the cost down, which is the main benefit of utilizing a template in the first place, while still letting you enjoy the perk of having someone else do the editing.
Take the time and work with your user community to identify the common templates used throughout the organization. Collect and organize these templates so they can be easily found and included in a workgroup template location. Take the time to prune any templates that are no longer necessary and update any requiring attention. Also take the time to identify templates that are still needed. Ideally, every common form would have a corresponding template. This process will not be quick or easy, so it makes a far better place to start than with any of the other technology portions.
Now the next possible question that arises is as how to edit the web templates; isn't it? That's simple! Most web templates are editable and can be edited using popular html editors like FrontPage, DreamWeaver, GoLive and Photoshop. These html editors are easy to use and have a friendly interface. You need not be a pro to use them. Anyway in case anyone finds the editing part difficult they can always go for template customization services that are provided by most web template providers.
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.
