    Definitely using templates is the simplest way of creating a website without coding. Even, one can start with different templates each time while starting a new project because there is no lack of such templates in this online arena. Within single click, one can find ample of providers such as http://innulled.com/category/wordpress_themes/ and more. Just by simply edit and customize the template’s content, you can intensify your own exotic and stylish website.

    Joomla is another cookie cutter. It does not make you complete control of your coding. You have fine right template that fits to your customer needs. What happens customer later says I dont like the content look? Yup have to buy another web Template. Total joke. Having control with my own coding I can redesign how customers feels and look of it. So having joomla, drupal is just cookie cutter clutter.

    I use Joomla to make my websites. Easy and with templates I can change the look at anytime and have a fresh look that makes people think I have upgraded or changed software. Very little to the learning curve and gets updated when ever a major issue is found so you stay a little ahead in the game.

      I love Joomla, but I didn't think it was quite simple enough for the needs of this article. It keeps getting better though. :)

      Joomla is just a cookie cutter. I prefer to built site on my own. I have complete control of my coding. No need buy each template fit the look of the website. Also joomla makes you update each version so many times which in all ruins your apps or website looks

    If I elect to use Wix.com, must I host the site with them?

      I use flash images produced in Wix on my Yola site without problems. It has the advantage that text on the Yola page loads first which a viewer with a slow internet connection can read while waiting for the flash images to load.
