When the assignment comes to start working on your organization's Office 2010 upgrade, don't immediately reach for the installation media. Due to its ubiquity, Office upgrades come with a far bigger opportunity to impact your organization's efficiency than most other products. One of the major ways to impact the overall effectiveness of your organization is through proper template maintenance. Now don't get too excited, the work is hard from glamorous, and in many organizations requires a good dose of negotiating skills to get all of the appropriate parties on the same page. After all, most people are all for standards, as long as it is their way that is the standard.
For editing layouts and styles you would require a CSS style sheet. A CSS style sheet is a document that lets you make changes like text color, text/paragraph spacing, headings, links etc to multiple pages. Always ask your template provider to give external CSS style sheets as they are easy to edit. CSS can be edited using any HTML or text based editors.
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.
There are both free and paid templates available for your use. With a few exceptions the free templates will come with a licence that gives rules for its use. Creative Commons licenses are often used by the creator of free web design templates. The rules may require that you use the template for only certain purposes. Attribution is often required which means that you must give proper credit to the author and not claim the design for yourself. The license is often included in the template download. If the license is not included in the download or the website you may assume that there is no license.
Website owners can directly benefit from the vibrant and healthy marketplace of templates. With so many professionals seeking to break into the market, many quality templates are given away at no cost. These free templates often have the same quality as premium or even custom templates, but without the high price. Free templates allow for anyone with a website, individuals and businesses alike, to have a website that looks great at no cost.
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.
