Joomla TemplatesEnding the evil tyranny of website abominations and animated gifs.

It really does seem like everyone and their brother’s aunt’s uncle’s best friend’s roommate has some type of website these days. If you’ve seen some of the horrid abominations of invalid xhtml horror that I have, it is quickly apparent that many lack the skills to create a magical website experience. Thankfully, there’s Joomla and the Joomla templates system.

I know what you are thinking, “Joomla”, what is that, some kind of exotic drink or crazy Starbucks beverage size? Interestingly enough, Joomla is a bundle of PHP goodness that is out there fighting the good fight of open source content management software, bringing powerful websites to the masses. Freely available, and with an active community of millions, Joomla is a great way to easily create a website with powerful features even for the web novice. But, even with all of the earth shattering power and galaxy wide domination that can be had with using Joomla for your website, there is still the possibility that your site will end up looking like your web advisory team consisted of a dyslexic clown and a pack of two year old children with crayons and no supervision. That is where Joomla’s super mega awesome templating system comes in.

Joomla templates are a design layer that allows you display your content in all manner of total awesomeness, and can be easily changed and configured to present your content in a completely different way. There are 1.27 kajillion Joomla templates, both free and professional, out there now so there is a lot of choice in picking your instrument of web domination. The best, by far, is the Joomla templates club RocketTheme. Not satisfied with the current state of web design and the lack of Joomla template glory, RocketTheme leads the way with incredible Joomla template designs and features.

RocketTheme Joomla templates are designed by magical elves from deep within the Colorado mountains. Armed with short legs, toddler clothing, and an unmistakable knack for PHP and CSS, the RocketTheme elves churn out template designs that are so adaptable and customizable, the same Joomla template can produce dozens of sites that look completely different from one another. How do the RocketTheme elves do this? No one knows exactly, but thankfully they do allow mere mortals to utilize their incredible works. Below is a breakdown of some of the RocketTheme elves finest Joomla works.
