All About Joomla
Joomla is a free open source content management. This software is under General Public License and can be used by anybody to do anything he or she deems fit. Joomla is quite robust and professionals and many are finding it easier to use it in creating different types of websites than before. People are beginning to appreciate its usefulness and easy to use options.
There is current a large happy and vibrant Joomla users communities that are growing daily. It is common to see varieties of templates built by developers to suite any project they are undertaking. Some of these templates are free while others are sold at some cheap prices. It is necessary to point out that the free Joomla templates aren’t inferior quality, as a matter of fact, the best quality Joomla templates that had ever been produced were shared freely in the Joomla communities. It is common to see many people sharing Joomla templates and tools freely in the various communities.
Joomla came into being in 17th August 2005 but wasn’t operational till 1st September of that year when the name Joomla was actually announced. The actual first release of the software was called Joomla 1.0.0 and that was on the 16th of September. Many believe that that first release was actually the re-branded version of Mambo 22.214.171.124. It created enough buzz and excitement within the users communities that it bagged the Packt Publishing Open Source Content Management System Award in 2006 and 2007 consecutively.
It is very easy to build great websites using free Joomla templates but be reminded that you have to pay close attention to be able to learn how to use the software. Apart from having an official Joomla forum with about 2 millions posts, there are lots of tutorials that would easily put one through on how bets to start using Joomla to start creating super websites. The unique nature of internet also relates to Joomla because there are plenty of information and tutorials all over the internet regarding Joomla, its uses and how to tweak the templates.
Joomla content management system works by making it possible for its users to be able use several features attached to it to fully integrate to the basic software. These features can be quite useful to any website such as adding a user roll, a calendar, a forum, a blog and lots of other awesome features that are common among the interactive websites we have today on the internet.
Joomla can be used to create both very large websites such as the databases websites and very little ones such as the one pages websites. The difference in all these websites are the templates used to create them. You can get good templates from any of thousands of templates that litter the internet or you can have a unique template designed just for you but note that this would come with a price which is unnecessary in my opinion.
Choosing free Joomla templates is easy, just search online and choose based on your taste and desire. Using Joomla to create stunning websites is just a breeze.
