You have to consider that "appearence in front end" of a site created with Elxis CMS, plays a key role in the promotion of the job you are doing.
I dont know to create templates and the book "ΠΩΣ ΝΑ ΦΤΙΑΞΕΤΕ TEMPLATE ΓΙΑ ΤΟ ELXIS CMS" was not helpful for me.
I have tried to create templates with ARTISTEER, an impressing software for newbies like me.
Unfortunatelly they don't have ELXIS CMS as an option.
I wrote to Artisteer team, asking for such an option:
I'm one of those who I'm lucking the knowledge and the skill of creating templates. I tried Artisteer and found your product to be really really useful and helpful for me, but I need an import/export option for the Elxis CMS I’m using.
ELXIS CMS (http://www.elxis.org/
) is a really good mambo advanced clone, under GNU. It is really powerful and a promising alternative to joomla. It appeared in 2006 and became the favorite option for a lot of people. Would you consider an Elxis Template import/export option in your software with your next upgrade?
If you go for a "template builder" early, you will rocket your CMS up and up!.
