When you're in rush a to build a website, or if you're just looking to save some time and money in creating a website, one of the best methods to look at is using free Joomla templates. With this method, there is no need to contract the services of a Joomla expert. The appropriate way to get the best templates is through online searching. Since there are a number of free templates, these tips help you by providing guidelines on what to consider when searching for free Joomla templates.
Well, to put it in a simple way, web templates are nothing but readymade web-pages that can be used to create websites in seconds! How you ask? Web templates act as html coded dummy web pages that contain model content. Now these templates can be edited with ease (to add content, graphics, logo, pictures etc) to create professional web pages in less time.
Another way that you can customize your template is by editing the blog's template file. You can access the template file by going to Layout -> Edit HTML. Blogger would probably be more accurate naming the link "Edit XML", since that's what you're actually editing. What you'll find in the template file are some variable definitions, some CSS style definitions, and finally the body of the blog page, which contains a bunch of XML tags that look something like this:
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.
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.
