Now on WordPress
On previous versions of this site Joomla was my CMS of choice. I was able to quickly build it. But getting it to look good was quite a challenge. The answer to this, of course, is templates. That’s where the frustration begins.
Finding templates for Joomla! is quite trying. You first start out with a search for free templates. You get plenty of hits for “free templates.”
But here is the typical experience; you are required to sign up / create an account. you get it, they provide something for free, they get to spam you- understood. But here’s the kicker, most times I get to the checkout page and see that free is actually $30 or more. This happened to me most of the time. So, I verified my email, am signed up for spam, and don’t have template to use…
But there are templates that really are free, but how do you use them? I can’t find the documentation.
Maybe it is my fault for not finding and studying the documentation, but I found that with WordPress I could easily figure out how to use it, and the templates. Most templates and plug-ins come with instructions and are easy to set up. So, here we are with WordPress.
