The Joomla software is one of the most flexible kinds of Content Management Systems, particularly when it comes to adapting and customizing it to design and create different types of specialization Joomla websites.
While the following is by no means an extensive list, it gives you a basic idea of what you can attain when you learn Joomla. Note: You do not need to be an expert to build these types of websites. More on that in the following paragraphs.:)
Below are a few of the types of sites that you could design and develop with Joomla…
1. Joomla Membership Site:
A Joomla membership site is quite easy to design using Joomla. There are different types of extensions (add-ons) that it is possible to put in on the Joomla website and configure them to work effortlessly. There are components (important “stand-alone scripts”), modules, and in addition to plugins that can allow you to create such a site.
A Few of the things that you can accomplish with a Joomla membership website are:
Establishing different membership levels, subscription prices for each level and fitting content accessibility.
2. Joomla E-commerce Website:
If you’re into selling goods online (if they are digital or shippable items), then you can also simply and easily assemble a fully-functional eCommerce site using nothing but the Joomla CMS. There are many Joomla extensions which are available to help you setup and manage:
- Shopping cart systems
- Merchandise downloads or delivery
- Automated purchase affirmation
- And a lot more…
You may also easily incorporate your Joomla merchandise ordering system with your website and add a membership program to it if you want. :-RRB- ). Additionally, there are many Joomla eCommerce templates which you can download and install on your site to give it a much more professional look. Some of those Joomla shopping cart and relevant extensions even include their own group of templates, whether paid or for free.
3. Joomla Business Directory:
One of the projects that I’ve been able to accomplish personally with this CMS is that of being able to effectively design, build and launch a Joomla Business Directory utilizing only the elements, modules and plugins which are readily available to the Joomla community. It could have appeared a mega Joomla development project, but it was just enough to do and worth it. Using these extensions, you can make directory sites that have such attributes as:
- Featured listings
- Google Maps for each record
- Listing fees, if you would like to.
- Business directory groups that can be several levels deep.
- Meta tags, along with other search engine optimization (SEO) systems.
4. Joomla Video Portal:
Your Joomla website development skills can also allow you to create a movie submission and sharing website using Joomla. Some of the features that your users can appreciate may include:
- Creating personal or company accounts in your video portal
- Uploading videos
- automated creation of embed links. (You know those tiny nifty pieces of code which you just copy and paste onto a page and then your movie appears? Yes, you can do this just like YouTube and other video sharing sites )
- Sharing or advocating the videos to their friends, classmates, and colleagues
And so much more…
And, yes, there are a whole lot of Joomla video elements, modules, and plugins to help you create this as simply and as quickly as possible.
5. Your Own Type of Website:
Whatever kind of Joomla website that you would like to develop and design, there’s a high likelihood that there are already others doing it with Joomla. And the right extensions would be available to assist you to reach it in record time if you want to do it.
The extent to which you are able to tweak, modify and personalize Joomla to make the type of website you so badly want is only limited by your own creative creativity, inspiration, and commitment to improving your Joomla development skills.
