Joomla Website Design, Uncategorized 10 Comments

For last full month, I have been extremely busy with fixing things with Office and working on some new projects that went extremely good at the end.

Now finally I have some more ideas to share about Joomla website designing and why you need a Joomla designer ultimately?

Is it a pain in your butt to have to chase your designer every time you need to make some changes on your website?

Guess what? You need a CMS website.

Content management makes your life easy and ends your dependency on your designer for EVER.

Here is how a Joomla CMS based website can really help you

  1. Making textual changes in your site becomes easy. You can login to administrator, make some editing just like a word processor, save and that’s it
  2. Publishing your images becomes easier, you have a built in media center where you upload all your images and then load them in your content
  3. Adding new content is just few clicks away. Simple add a new article, include images and publish it.
  4. Adding other media like Vide, Blogs, Polls
  5. Adding shopping cart to your site
  6. Adding new menus, removing menus to your site
  7. Adding and removing entire sections of your site is just a click away, and you don’t have to delete your content in order to remove it from your site, just un-publish it. It stays there in database and you can publish it again ANY time.

A CMS gives you FULL control on YOUR site like no one else can. Remember, its YOUR website and you are the one who should control it.

Tired of being dependent on your web design company to do changes in your site everytime you want something changed? Then you need a Joomla Designer to do custom joomla website for you.

Content Management System is a powerful tool that is currently used by a large %age of websites. A CMS gives you full control over your site and allows you to update content of your website without any knowledge of HTML or web page designing. You just need to know how to update articles and you can work with your CMS like any normal word processor.

Joomla is a free CMS tool. It’s previous generation was called Mambo which was another popular CMS of its time.  Then Joomla was born and Mambo became history, but Joomla CMS engine is still using Mambo CMS engine in it’s core.

Joomla has been designed to be extremely flexible and easy to use. It gives you full control over the content management, media publishing, membership management, editorial control and so many other features that come built in with Joomla. Moreover, you can use thousand of joomla extension libraries (Paid or Free) contributed by thousands of programmers world wide. These extension libraries are called the components.  Today, you can find a component for almost anything. This is where the real power of Joomla lies because you can add any feature you like to have in your website by just a few clicks.

A joomla website designer has to have a good knowledge of how their HTML designs can be integrated with Joomla CMS engine. For this they must have good knowledge of Joomla template language, which is not too complicated for a good experienced designer to learn. Joomla works on famous model that separates presentation from logic, thus a joomla template creates a bridge between the two.

For a large website that requires a CMS for it’s management, you must plan your content management first.  Identify what sections your site must have, what articles/content should appear under each section, what should be layout of home page and sub navigation pages etc. It is a good idea to define a sitemap for content planning and share it with your joomla designer. A sitemap gives the big picture of your website and helps your designer understand what exactly your site navigation should look like.

A joomla web designer can do a custom theme for you rather than a built in or purchased theme. In our experience, more than 80% people would ask for a custom theme because they have the flexibility to add sections and images according to their own needs. The task of a joomla designer is to fully understand your requirements and design a simple static theme first. Once client approves the layout,  he can then transform static theme into joomla theme by applying joomla template language. This new theme can be easily plugged in to your joomla website.

We have a very good experienced team of joomla experts who have designed several joomla websites over past years. Not only that, we can also do custom joomla programming for more customized requirements. You can find out more by filling our free quotation form and we will send you more details.
