Joomla Website Design or Redesign has been completed, it is time to get your design ready for the
Joomla! CMS. But, there are still a couple of VERY important steps left. These
steps HAVE to be perfect. These next three steps are were 97% of other
Joomla Website Development Companies FAIL to deliver. Why? Because if
the next 3 steps are not LITERALLY done perfect, then your site will suffer in
the search engines, load slow, code written incorrectly etc.
these next few steps are what separate the big dogs from the wannabe website
Now we begin the conversion of your
custom Joomla Website Design file (also known as a .psd Adobe Photoshop file) and convert that
into HTML5 and CSS3. This conversion process is what makes your Joomla Website
viewable on the internet.
Our .psd conversion process utilizes the latest in web design
of our websites are now built with:
All of our sites as of 2013 are developed with the latest standards available on the
internet today. These standards provide our Joomla Websites with the most flexibility
so that they can perform at the level in which you expect. Long past are the days
of websites not showing up correctly within different browsers. Compatibility is
key when it comes to your website performing at its peak.
Step 2 of the Joomla Website Development process is to choose
the framework of which your design will be built on. The 5 most used frameworks
are the following:
What exactly is the Joomla Framework? The Framework we are talking
about here in step 2 is the layer that ties your design/functionality into the
Joomla Core (CMS) itself. This framework layer gives your website different
levels of functionality such us: Cross browser support, module structure, grid
system, print style sheets, java script effects etc.
This layer called "Framework" is installed into Joomla and your HTML5/CSS3
converted design is then installed into the Framework. This allows for your
template to be responsive, have accordion menus, drop downs, widgets etc.
Basically all the cool stuff your website does is provided by the Framework.
Though there are several other Frameworks to choose from, the above mentioned are the most flexible
and reliable. If there is not
a specified preference, our standard development framework we use for our
Website Development is Warp.
The last step of this stage
is to pick the version of Joomla that you will be using. We
do not build "new" Joomla Websites on Joomla 1.5, 1.6, 1.7 or 1.8 anymore.
Though we still "support" these older versions, they are no longer supported by Joomla.
We do build websites on Joomla 2.5, Joomla 3.x.. Just let us know which version you wish to have your
Joomla Website built on.
Note: keep in mind that during the discovery stage of this
project we will probably determine the version based on your requirements. A lot
of components are not yet supported by Joomla Version 3.x yet.
Joomla Website Development is the last step. You are like,
"isn't this all Joomla Website Development?" Well, kinda sorta,
Joomla design conversion process is complete and you have chosen your
framework to build it on, we then begin the integration of your freshly coded
HTML5/CSS3 template and integrate it into the Joomla CMS Platform and Framework; (now its Joomla
During this development stage, we begin the install/configuration of your different extensions,
components and modules you selected during the
discovery stage of the project.
Once the functionality has all been installed and tested, we then begin the
upload of your content and graphics, tie it all in together and Poof; you have a
state-of-the-art website that is ready for
SEO - Search Engine Optimization.
