Points to note:
  • you can view the site with the revised BEEZ template (opens in a new window), feel free to browser around and get the look and feel of the site.
  • all the colours have been changed
  • an image has been added to the header
  • header text has been changed
  • google adsense adverts have been added in the left-hand column and across the top
At first sight it may look totally different, but if you look carefully you will see that all the elements of the original are still there, but modified. New to Joomla dot com will be adding a series of tutorials to show how these modifications were done.
