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.
A final note on templates in general. Those willing to buy the software, take the time to learn it, and use a template should be aware that many templates are not "well coded." For the most part this may not effect or even matter to the template buyer. They will have a website and it will "work". Anyone who is also attempting to optimize their site for search engine placement, or who wants to make their site more efficient and use less code, should pay attention to the structure of the HTML files provided in the template. Many, though by no means all, templates, use a "tables" based layout that could be improved upon to make it more code efficient and make search engine optimization easier.
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.
As mentioned earlier, web themes are the better options for building an attractive website within just two days and the expenses associated with themes are also lesser. Rather than hiring a professional website designer, which costs more, it is better to go for paid themes, which is a one-time investment. However, if a person searches for premium website templates with some layouts and formats in his mind, he might not be able to get the required format since different templates follow different formats. In this case, a designer can help the person, rather than a template.
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.
