There are many ways of deploying a website. Sites usually fall into three categories, some are static and some uses content management systems and some are those that are custom made. There are number of content management systems out there in the market but some of them are very popular such as Joomla, WordPress and Drupal. It's easy to find templates on internet for these CMS's, so now a day these content management systems are preferred by most of the developers. The template generally controls the appearance of the website, while the core files of the CMS maintain the content, and cascading style sheets, Flash and other web technologies.
Templates should be dimensionally stable, durable and capable of taking the fine details. Solid wood is a poor choice for templates as it is not dimensionally stable. While steel is stable and durable if you accidentally touch a spinning bit to a template made from steel, you will probably wreck the bit and the template. Acrylic is transparent and allows for visibility of the work beneath but a slow bearing can generate enough heat from friction to melt a template made out of acrylic. Although all of these materials can be used, Medium-Density Fibreboard (MDF) is probably the best choice and has shown to produce great results.
These days you cannot run a serious business nor can you do pretty much anything on the Internet without having a personal website of your own. The problem comes when you do not know how to create an attractive looking website that is going to attract visitors. The best option in this case would be free website templates. The reason why free website templates tend to be such a good option is because they are the perfect way for you to build a website while having limited resources. There are many benefits to this.
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.
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.
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.
