Changing the Order of the Blocks (Modules) in Magento

Magento is open source ecommerce software that is available for free download. Magento comes in three different versions and one of them is free to download. Magento has been fairly recently released as compared to the other ones that have been around since a while. Even then it is become one of the most popular ecommerce solutions around. Many large companies and even small companies have chosen Magento as their ecommerce solution.

In addition to which Magento is constantly striving to make the already good software better by releasing new versions and point versions which you can upgrade into quite easily.  It is now a very robust and versatile software. Readymade templates are quite popular these days since not many like the default template displayed by Magneto and it is quite handy to simply download a new template from the internet. But then there are those who do like the look and feel of a readymade template; not only is it not unique it is also hard to customise with their own ideas and designs. Thus those people with a vision of store design often like to have a store with their own unique ideas and design elements.

While it is easy to install a ready made template it is not easy to make your own template. However making a customised templates requires the good programming skills and you may need to hire a Magento Web Developer to do the job.
