Joomla Templates

on Wednesday, 29 March 2017 15:13.

There are a wide selection of Joomla templates available from "free" to commerical versions. Customised templates can be built depending upon customer requirements.

Ideally templates should be:

  • responsive - to ensure mobile friendly.
  • easy to restyle to suit web site and branding.
  • easy to change the layout i.e. based upon a grid format to allow changes to module and content positioning.
  • Should come with support - note many "free" templates do not come with support and yuo will be let down at a critical point.

We recommend templates from "Hot Joomla Templates" as their templates meet the above requirements and support is great.

We've noticed recently with a number of clients that they have been provided a fancy Joomla web site. Then have been left to fend for themselves unable to get questons regarding their web site answered.

A Joomla web site needs maintenance just like a car, it needs to be adjusted to meet changing business and technology requirements. The Joomla core software needs to be kept up to date to ensure security.

We've been building and supporting Joomla since it first came out - we won't leave you hanging.

If your hoster or Joomla web site developer has taken your money then left and you need Joomla support contact us and we'll assist you.


Complete updates - include extensions

on Wednesday, 05 August 2015 18:32.

We have witnessed many a situation where clients have approached us as they have identified that their Joomla installation is outdated. However this is only part of the picture - if your site includes extensions to enhance the Joomla web site, it is critical that these are kept up to date as well. Often these 3rd party addons can provide more harm by providing potential vulnerabilities that hackers can use to target your site. Not just to deface your site but use it for redirection purposes.

We can check your site for security risks.


More than Design

on Wednesday, 05 August 2015 18:25.

Just hiring a web designer for a Joomla web site is asking for a half done job. They tend to focus on the look and style of the a web site, but you need to take your web site beyond just branding and company message. Other aspects have a major influence on how a web site performs and such things as:

  • Functionality
  • Business integration
  • SEO and google site views
  • Security
  • Performance analysis
  • Hosting domain and web

are all important aspects of a well performing site that need to be addressed.

Ensure you have a developer not just a designer so you get the complete solution.

At NZJoomla we provide the full solution.

Joomla 1.5 - do I need to upgrade?

on Thursday, 22 May 2014 18:23.

If you are running Joomla 1.5 you should consider upgrading to a more recent version of Joomla. This is because later versions are more secure, have access to better features and functionality and more 3rd party addons.

As long as you have a fully patched Joomla installation with current supported 3rd party addons, your site will be OK. However with the upgrading of technology used by Joomla PHP and MySQL, more issues are being found inparticular with 3rd party addons and in some cases specific recoding is required to ensure sites run well. Rather than let this drag on it is better to upgrade your site and enhance it's functionality.
