Thirteen months prior to this question, I voluntarily updated http://evangelismmission.com to its present state and design. Since that point, I have been maintaining it for Evangelism Mission.
Whenever I am emailed design changes or content changes, I make and test them on my machine, commit them with Git, FTP them onto the server, and check that everything took properly. In an endeavor to reduce the time and effort needed to update things, to make it easier for me to pass on the responsibilities to someone else, and to simplify website updates so that coding ability is no longer a prerequisite to updating the website, I would like to move this site to Joomla.
What is the correct way to move websites with complicated elements to Joomla?
Having researched and activated my brain, I believe I need to make a component(?) and insert it into the page where necessary... I theorize that the correct way to migrate a custom website to Joomla involves these steps:
- Create template.
- Create styles for template.
- Make components...
Is this right? Am I missing something?
