[prMac.com] Dania Beach, FL - LiquidNet, the famous web hosting services provider, announces that it has recently launched ThemZa - a new online project aimed at offering a wide variety of free templates and web design themes for PHP script-based websites such as blogs, image galleries and content management systems. New skins are being continuously added to the list of the Joomla templates, WordPress, Moodle and 4images themes currently available for download in .zip format to all the users contemplating a new personal or business website and searching for an appropriate template to accommodate its contents, as well as to those simply looking for a fresh new theme to replace their current outdated one.
Users can get acquainted with the layout and the functionalities of each particular skin by examining the demo versions provided or by simply clicking on the respective thumbnail image for a larger view. All they have to do is download the preferred template to their personal computer and then upload it to a website of their own, provided that they have already obtained an up-to-date version of the script the template in question pertains to. Users are also given the opportunity to pick an appropriate package optimized to accommodate the various free themes should they still have not found an adequate hosting service for their open source script-based website or in case they are unable to handle the whole script installation process all by themselves.
ThemZa offers free, ready-made design templates for the two most popular stable Joomla versions - Joomla 1.0 and Joomla 1.5. Using this advanced open source content management system software, users can create personal web pages, non-profit and small business platforms, corporate portals, intranets, extranets, online shops, no matter whether their website is about IT technologies, mobile solutions, nature, music, sports, cars. Most of the templates are made available in more than one skin color and offer various banner, logo and sidebar layout configuration options, customizable header and footer areas, advanced drop-down menus, modules for posting Latest News, Polls, etc.
ThemZa also offers Moodle course management system templates to educators who want to create an e-learning collaborative community website and deliver online courses, lessons, quizzes, assignments, surveys, workshops, instead of the traditional face-to-face courses. Using Moodle they would be able to build not only a single-teacher educational platform but also a multi-student online university portal, which could in a way replace attending the lectures in person. Based on well-proven pedagogical traditions, it gives instructors full control over all settings of an e-course through a user-friendly WYSIWYG HTML editor and offers multi-language, multi-course and multi-format support.
Beside CMS templates, ThemZa offers also WordPress and 4images themes for blogs and image galleries, respectively. WordPress is a popular publishing platform suitable both for keeping a personal online diary and for maintaining larger business pages that need regular website updates. Using some of the many available plug-ins users can thus customize WordPress so that it does not even look like a blog any longer. 4images Gallery, on the other hand, is a web-based media gallery management tool for accommodating large volumes of photo collections and presenting them in an orderly manner. Beside image formats such as .jpeg, .gif, .png, .tiff and .bmp, 4images supports also a number of video formats, among them .avi, .mov, .mp3, .mpeg, .swf and .rm.
Nick Blaskov, CFO of LiquidNet, said that all users can download for free any of the readily available, turn-key, yet highly customizable skins currently on offer, and create professionally appearing personal blogs and corporate homepages, content-rich e-learning portals, colorful online photo galleries and many more quickly and easily, that the web design work invested in the creation of the free templates this new website is offering answers all the requirements of the respective online software and its specific design theme integration manuals, as well as the requirements of even the most demanding Joomla, Moodle, WordPress and 4images users, and that ThemZa will start offering Drupal and Mambo content management templates in the near future as well.
