Webdesign: Five reasons why you should use Joomla for your website design

Joomla is one of the free CMS (Content Management Systems) that gathered a lot of users in the last few years. The number of websites created with Joomla is numbered in a few hundred thousands, so one can say it’s one of the most popular tools to create web sites. The next reasons are only a few why you shoold use Joomla for your website design. You only need a web server that handles php and a mysql database to install this CMS and, after configuring it, to have a functional website. Next you have to add some functions (using the components, modules and plugins) you need and select or create a Joomla theme.

It is user friendly and easy to learn

Even beginners are welcome to use this – it may take longer to find out about all its function but it’s easy to learn. It takes at most a few days to learn it all over. The CMS is rather big (especially when you never worked with other CMSs) because it’s under constant development for some years, but it’s easy to follow the modification made in time – there are availabe online various versions of Joomla.

Web design tips: Reasons why most do-it-yourself website design are not successful

As you already know, in the last few years a lot of tools were created in order to help improving someone’s work in designing websites (along with other fields of activity over internet). It’s seems very easy to install a Joomla, Drupal or WordPress on a server, to configure it, to select a proper theme and to write some content in order to have a website running allright and looking nice. It many cases it would be do-it-yourself website, meaning you can do all of these without any help from a professional. Some web hosting companies offer some services on a server and some software packages that generate websites for a very fair price (from the client’s point of view).

But being able to do it yourself doesn’t mean that you don’t need help from somebody working in the field. The packages that generate websites are cheap, but usually they are not complete: they are offering only the minimal options for a website. If you, as a client, want something else or something more, you will soon find the limitation of such packages as a bad thing. On the other way, big free packages such Joomla, Drupal or WordPress have to be configured properly and sometimes that can be very tricky for somebody that’s using them the first time or does not have intensive experience with them. They also offer only limited options, but the good thing is that this kind of free products created around them a community and the users created addition scripts that allows you as end-user to improve your website with a lot of efficient solutions. The problem is the big number of third party solutions (there are hundreds or thousands of plugins and components for each system) and you have to lose some time to search the best ones for you. If you don’t find what you are looking (as templates, components or modules) you have to hire a professional to do the job for you and you are back to square one.

Webdesign: Reasons why web design isn’t for everyone

Some may consider that for being a good web designer you have to have some artistic sense in order to create an attractive design for the web pages, you have to be a programmer in order to understand what’s behind the page and the mechanisms of the internet servers and the world wide web, you have to be at least a SEO consultant (or even a SEO expert) in order to make the web sites optimized for the search engines. It’s true, all these skills can help a lot if you decide to create web sites and you can always learn about the subjects or you can always gather a team of people that can do everything for you.

But there are some things you can not replace and if you don’t have them in you don’t start web designing.

Communication Skills

Everything over internet is communication: in their websites people are trying to send a message in a proper way. They might know the message (if you are lucky – some of my clients had an idea and that’s all) but they don’t know how to put it into practice. In this case you have to explain them how things are working on internet and what’s the best thing to do in order to get the most and the best results from their idea, how to spread the message to the people in the best way.

Having good communication skills means you may take the lead from time to time and, the most important, to have a lot of patience. Your subject of interest and job is the internet, but as a web designer you have to work also with people. So if you don’t know how to work with people try a different job.
