For many people building a website means hiring a web designer and a programmer. However, whatever you do, you always have a choice, right? So if you decide to set up a Joomla website, but you don’t want to pay for a custom design, then you can think of using a Free Joomla Template. If you like the idea, please read on and we’ll tell you where to find a wide variety of Free Joomla Templates.
Actually, there are many websites offering free templates for Joomla, but we would suggest you to start your search with GetJoomlaTemplatesFree.com. There are more than 100 free templates on this site now and the number is growing fast. It should be also mentioned that GJTF has templates for different versions of the Joomla CMS (Joomla 1.5, Joomla 1.7 and Joomla 2.5), and all templates are organized into categories (i.e. Business, Holiday, Music, Real Estate, Sport) to make it easier to navigate through the website. Below are just a few of the Joomla templates you can download for free at GetJoomlaTemplatesFree.com.
Please note: GJTF encourages submissions from the community, meaning Joomla designers and Joomla enthusiasts are welcome to submit the free Joomla themes they’d like to share with others. However, free templates need to be manually approved in order to be listed on the site.
And the last thing to mention, if you download a template submitted by TemplateMonster, then do not forget to read the guide (Readme.pdf) before installing the template. This way you will ensure that your future website will look the same as the template demo.
