What are Joomla!® Templates?
Templates are the cosmetic 'skin' your site presents to the world. It determines the look of your site, the layout and menu structure. Our custom-designed templates utilize responsive design so your site will be mobile-device compatible.
Once a template has been designed and the site is launched, changes can easily be made to it in future if you require additional content or layout changes to accomodate a new feature on the site or simply a cosmetic 'face lift'.
What is a content management system (CMS)?
A content management system is software that stores and keeps track of every piece of content on your website using a category / sub-category based structure. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, audio files, documents etc. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage once it is set up.
