WordPress is the software that we use and recommend, why? It is user friendly and easier than other software we have used. We don’t just use WordPress for our business sites, and we re-evaluate other software at least once a year.
WordPress is Flexible.
The basic software can be expanded on with plugins and themes.
Themes are the way the site looks to the visitor. There are over 2,000 free themes available and you can also have custom themes designed for you. When you apply a new theme all the pages and posts should update to be formatted in the new theme so no formatting changes should need to be made.
Plugins are software that can be installed that expand what WordPress does. For example if you want more formatting options then add a plugin that does that. We can help you to find the right plugins for your site. A few types of plugins we have used are:
- Online Shop
- Formatting text and tables
- Search Engine Optimisation
- Backup your site
- Membership areas
- Learning Management Systems
- Picture/Photo Gallery
You only need to know what you would like your site to do then find the plugin that does it. There are a lot that are free, some that you pay for.
