If you are running your own Joomla-based website and it looks unprofessional, don’t fret. There are many methods that can help you change it into a more professional look.
Firstly, you need to add some headers. Check out this article for more information. Secondly, you have to add basic forms, which include mail, shopping cart, booking, and others. Thirdly, you can add a lot of Components in your website, such as posts, pages, calendars, forms, media objects, text boxes, etc.
Now, the basic users should not be in charge of adding any content or changing any content on your site. They should simply add HTML, the CSS and other scripts that come with Joomla. The rest of the site admin will then be in charge of changing the template of the theme and adding new features to the website. It is not easy to do, so you have to be careful when looking for help and other tips.
The most important thing is to choose the right product. Not everyone can create Joomla Components, so they will have to use a template to show their creativity. For beginners, they might find a good template for them. But for the beginners, they have to understand how the template works and how to create a product. Some templates are easy to use while others require a lot of knowledge.
Since you are a beginner, you cannot afford to hire a web developer or design team. These professionals can help you out with basic elements but they cannot be trusted to make any major changes to your website.
To add a place header and footer to your site, use the “Add New Header” button. You just need to select your “Header Name” and the “Body” of the header will be automatically created. Add more headers as you see fit, as long as you keep the content in the right order.
Firstly, make sure that the header is organized in a way that it can easily be recognized. It should be located near the middle of the page, or in the bottom part of the page.
Next, you need to make the “Title” of the header. Go to Appearance > headers and you will see the option “Place Title”. Select this option and copy the title, you see. Paste it in the header field of the admin dashboard.
Create a new page by clicking “Edit Site” on the “New Site” button on the “Site Contents” page of the “My Computer” window, and then go to “Preferences” > “Appearance” > “Page Templates” and click “Create”. Go to Appearance > Templates and click “Use Custom Title and Body” to edit the templates that are already present. Add the place header and footer in the correct place.
As you will notice, there are two options for the header template, namely “Block”Template”. Select “Block” and paste the header code that you copied earlier. Finally, select “Template” and add some more codes to the place header.
Also, change the privacy type of the login page so that only users with the “Add to Home” option will be able to login. However, do not change the default of allowing all users to login. Otherwise, everyone who wants to login will be allowed.
Also, you need to add a new user registration form for each new user. Go to “Users” > “Create Users” and fill in the “Username” box with the new username and “Password” box with the new password for the new user.
