I am build a website using a Joomla template. To start, I want to create a polished home page with only logo, menu items and a professional background on it. When visitors click on the menu items it will take them to the actual website. In order to do this, you would have to make a copy of the template and then edit it. Mostly just don't publish any module to the homepage and then disable frontpage content but outside this you would still have to make some edits to the footer area.
