Templates if I was to build my own is it easy to do and tuturials to follow?

A good place to start to find out a little about a lot is: http://w3schools.com/ they have working examples that you can play about with for some types of coding. They have information on PHP and a HEAP of other formats.

There are a number of dreamweaver forums that have good tuts. One is http://www.entheosweb.com/dreamweaver/default.asp

As for templates and easy to open. Everything is easy if you know what you are doing. If you know a little about dreamweaver, then buy a dreamweaver template. If you know a little more about Joomla, get one for free from the web and edit it, although you need to know a lot more about coding.

Post the links to the websites you have created and people can then see your level of expertise.

Hope that helps,

JL
