When I first started working in web design (the 90s) most of us created websites using static HTML pages. These websites were made up of files – a separate file for each page – and every time you wanted to make an update, you had to upload a new file. There were limitations on the ways you could lay these websites out, the functions you could include, and how useful they could be.
In these modern times, one of the most popular platforms for building a website is WordPress. When most non-web people think of WordPress, they think of blogs. But WordPress is far more than blogs. WordPress is an open source content management system (CMS) with powerful capabilities.
WordPress is an open source CMS – which means it is free to use. Because access to WordPress is so easy, developers from all over the world have contributed to the WordPress community. WordPress has an enormous following of loyal supporters, and this translates directly into new developments, plugins, capabilities, and other advances to the platform all the time. People are also constantly creating new WordPress themes, offering free advice and support, and doing whatever they can to make WordPress bigger and better. For the latest developments visit WordPress.org.
Not only is it easy for me to design and develop top-quality websites using WordPress, customizing those websites and pushing them to the limits of their capabilities is also a breeze. And the best part of all this – WordPress’ ease of use makes it simple for you, the website owner, to maintain your website with little to no help from me. Once I have your website up and running, you’ll be able to hit the ground running with a minimal amount of training.
