Just about the time you think it’s all finished, you get new ideas, new products or services – things change. There are lots of changes you’ll be wanting to do with your website as time marches forward.
Sometimes you’ll want to add new content, remove old content or just make some changes to existing content on your website.
With Joomla, making changes like these is as easy as using a word processer. Type your content and use the editing menu to add styles, color, hyperlinks, and so forth. Browse with your mouse to upload images to include in your articles. You can even include multimedia. Now you, or your employees can easily, quickly update your website without the help of a professional!
Think about what this means. You can log into your website's administration area, and add a new article or change an existing one. You can add a new product or change a description or price - all in less than five minutes!
Joomla won't just save you money, Joomla will save your organization TIME! And you know that unlike the old saying, "Time is money.", time is actually more valuable than money.
Being able to keep your website fresh and up-to-date will also mean that visitors to your site will have more trust in the information they find there and they'll be more likely to check back frequently, knowing that things are constantly being updated. That has to transfer into more customers and more profit.
Even big changes like adding new features, is as easy as finding the particular extension you want; downloading it, then installing it onto your website and configuring it to your tastes. If that’s more work than you want to do, at least a web developer can do this for you in just a tiny fraction of the time it would take for him to create this new application.
Even having a custom feature programmed for you is a simple matter because of Joomla’s popularity and the number of web developers who are familiar with Joomla, but chances are you’ll never need a custom feature because there are thousands of extensions readily available – most of them for free.
You can read reviews from others who have tried an extension and you can install it on your website with just a few mouse-clicks. If you decide later that you don’t like that particular implementation, uninstalling is just as simple, so you can try another extension until you find the one you like.
Adding a new feature can take as little as five minutes and you can’t beat the cost – FREE – if you’re willing to DIY, and even if you hire someone to do it for you, it will cost just a fraction of what it would take to write a custom script.
Not only is adding extensions fast, easy and usually free with Joomla, but since Joomla is programmed modularly, you don’t have to worry about a new extension causing a problem elsewhere in your application. That’s a common problem with custom web applications.
Some extensions can be a little more involved to install, so if you need assistance, CompuSolver is there for you. If you find that you need a custom extension, CompuSolver can help you there also.
