What is Joomla!?


Joomla! is a content management system (CMS), which enables me to build you a custom website using responsive design templates and powerful online applications. Many aspects, including Joomla's ease-of-use and extensibility, have made Joomla the most popular website software available. Best of all, Joomla is an open-source solution that is freely available and you'll never need to purchase expensive software if you choose to update your own website.

 

What is a content management system (CMS)?


A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your website, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, documents, photos, music, video—just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.

 

What is a responsive design template?


Websites built with responsive templates look and work great on any screen size (phone, tablet, laptop, and desktop), and the template's low Javascript gives your site the best universal browser results.

 

What are the benefits of using Joomla and why use a template?


The Joomla templates I use are built on the Wright Framework which means that they are ultra light so that your site loads quickly and is easy to update and maintain. Simpler overrides reduce installation, upgrade, and maintenance needs. The templates provide search engine friendly URLs making them SEO friendly. Light and quick-loading templates are good for SEO.
