At CreativeSights we have decided to provide a clean core Joomla!® template free of charge that anyone with HTML and CSS skills can utilize to build their own fully customized Joomla! template.
As I've stated in older posts, one of my favorite things about Joomla!® is how easy it makes things to build your own template. We want the world to take advantage.
Andrew at CreativeSights is awesome! I highly recommend going with this company for website help. He is smart, easy to work with, efficient and honest. Rather than charge our non-profit for small web changes, Andrew taught me how to make the changes myself. We will definitely hire Andrew again in the future.
A great Yelp! review from Elizabeth at Center for Responsible Science.
Reviewing Thoughts from February 2012
I just had one more person favorite this post I made back in February 2012 in response to someone who was questioning if they should really go through the trouble to migrate from Joomla 1.5 to Joomla 2.5.
Now that the Joomla!™ Community is moving quickly towards version 3.4 and 1.5 is now depricated, I liked what I wrote way back then and thought is was worth sharing here:
In its third year, the Joomla! World Conference returns to bring together the worldwide Joomla! Community for three days of learning, connecting, and sharing.
This year on November 7-9 at the Grand Oasis Cancun in Cancun, Mexico the brightest Joomla! minds come together to share their experiences, connect with others, and learn more about Joomla! and its community.
Bothered by some of the videos that appear after a video runs on your website?
As video blogs have become more popular, we've got this question more frequently - “When I embed YouTube videos YouTube will display “Related Videos” at the end. How can I disable that?"
While we prefer custom designs, here are some excellent options for those looking to save money.
When someone says a site "looks like a Joomla!™ site", we cringe. Joomla!™ has a huge advantage over the other CMS platforms with the easy and functional nature of its template system, so with a little bit of work, a Joomla!™ site can look like anything.
Even for the less skilled or basic users, there are hundreds of companies in the market right now who are producing templates (and template frameworks) for Joomla!™
Additionally, some of these companies offer clubs - meaning that instead of buying one template on an as needed basis, there's an option to buy a subscription or "join the club". Membership in the template club usually provides unlimited access to support and downloads for every template the club offers.
Here are some of the better ones:
