Their official schedules keep them busy in juggling with think paper files and financial calculators. So, they fail in creating an aesthetic online identity for their business organizations despite investing a fair share of money. If you also belong to this peer of businesspersons and going to use Joomla in your website then you can seek guidance from below given errors during the customization of an expensive Joomla theme.
1.Do Not Fall in Love With Auto Conversion
Well, it can convince you to adopt this method of conversion. It indeed seems cost & time efficient process. You may not like to invest plenty of your time on manual conversion but the things that look comfortable initially beget prolong losses. Therefore, you should not tempt yourself with the effectiveness of this version. This version is technically unfruitful for a business organization, which wants lasting virtual reputation. This version does not add cross browser compatibility. Moreover, your design will not go pixel perfect because the automated conversion will not look for this stuff. Therefore, you should only take manual conversion from PSD to Joomla. It will add cross browser compatibility as well as W3C validation in your site, which will help you at search engine optimization front.
2.Create Readable File Names
Usually, Joomla developers do not pay heed to create human readable files names. It kills the chance of being tracked by Google spiders. It is also a search engine optimization tactic. You only need to create descriptive names for your files like ‘Hello_Image’ for an image portraying a ‘waving hand’.
3.Resize Your Image Size
Unfortunately, you cannot get the feature of auto image resizing because Joomla does not offer such feature. For this purpose, you can resize your images in advance to avoid killing the loading speed of your website due to carrying large size images.
4.Don’t Carry Spaces in Files
You should make use of an underscore (‘_’) between two words of a file. For example, if you want to write ‘File Name.Jpg’ then you should write ‘File_name.jpg’ instead of ‘Filename.jpg’. Now, the browser & search engines will read ‘file name’ as the connection of two different words, stands for a unique purpose.
5.Never Place All Images in Same Folder
Well, you should never do this. With Joomla, you can create separate image folders under the main hood. For instance, you should save the images of ‘Our Team’ in the separate folder and images of ‘Our Products’ in the separate folder.
6. Use Available Text Formatting Tools
Many web developers prefer to customize the textual contents manually, which is a wrong process. You should use the available tools. For example, you should not make a text string bold & resize in order to turn into heading. On the other hand, you should use the available formatting tools for doing so.
7. Never Write Right in Joomla
Some users unknowingly start writing right in Joomla’s content panel, which expires at the interval of each 15 minutes. So, you need to write your text in Word processing software and paste in Joomla.
By avoiding these seven mistakes, you will be able to create a grand online identity of your business organization with this tool.
