10 Steps to Professionalise Your Joomla Web Site

Create a new favicon.ico.
Yes, the default black Joomla logo is pretty, but people bookmarking your site they need to see a icon that identifies your site rather than Joomla or others using Joomla default icon. If you don’t want to design on a 16×16 pixels scale, there are sites that will generate a favicon for you. Then upload it to /template//favicon.ico
Make sure you backup your database everyday.
We recommend the JoomlaPack – AJAX powered backup and restore

Don’t cut and paste from Microsoft Word.
It may be easy but MS Word produces some of the worst HTML ever. Cut and paste into a text editor such as Notepad or WordPAD before adding that content to your site.

Make sure you put the Search button in an observable position.
A search of the latest 20 sites on the Joomla forums showcase reveals that more than half doesn’t have a clearly visible search button.  Low on the left or right hand column is not good places. Try and put it close to the menu so that people’s eyes are logically drawn to it.

Utilize “Read More”.
Lots of visitors will never get past your homepage. Make sure that your homepage is not a long text area and start creating some “tease” –short content. In general, articles should not be longer than 4 or 5 sentences, followed by a “Read More…” link.

Content >> Unpublish the PDF and Print options.
These generate duplicate content problems in Google and may delay your SEO success.

Server >> Use Server Defaults.
Setting this to 777 or 775 creates a big security hole on your site.
Metadata. Don’t overload here. Keep it to a maximum of 6 description words and keywords. These will show on every page and you want to allow each page to have its own keywords.

Cache. Turn cache on from Global Configuration-> System.
Your site will run faster. The cache function saves copies of the web page as file so that users don’t have to load your whole page and make many database connections every time they visit.

Statistics. Turn them off!
T
hey’ll slow your site performance down. Go and get Google Analytics instead. Click here to see how to insert Google analytics to your joomla site.

7 Free Tools to Identify A Font !!!

1. What The Font

Developed by one of the largest font providers, WhatTheFont is your number one spot for identifying your fonts. Simply upload an image of the font that you want to ID and upload it to their servers (or add a link to the image on the WTF interface), and the system will show you multiple font results. If unable to find it, it will prompt you to go to their Font Forum where you can post the image and wait for feedback from font experts as to what that font may be called. I’ve used both systems and this usually solved most of my font questions.
