A little about WordPress development
The appeal of WordPress development lies in it’s combined power and simplicity. On the one hand, its a solid, fully featured and extensible Content Management System (CMS) with a huge level of community support (which means you’ll always be able to find help and Advice if you need it), but on the other it has a very low learning curve. Beginners can get up to speed on how to administer a blog, post new articles and add plug-ins in a jiffy! The number of WordPress designs we have been building has increased over the last year and its getting to the stage where we do really thing Dreamweaver (Web Design Software) has had its day!
So why should you use WordPress?
Most Cost effective CMS Platform
WordPress puts you in full control of the structure and gives you the power to develop the website adding as many pages as you wish. This cuts out any cost for further development via a third party developer and over the years will save you money as well as bringing in new business for you.
Open Source Software
WordPress is an Open Source software which allows it to be used free of cost. You can use it on any kind of personal or commercial website without having to pay to get future updates done such as adding pages or changing content. It is built on PHP / MySQL (which is again Open Source) and licensed under GPL.
You don’t really have to be experienced to use WordPress on your website. Once we have configured the website to your specification you are free to run with it. There are numerous forums and websites giving advice on how to complete the simple tasks and for £30.00 or less you can invest in many WordPress user guides. At a single click of the mouse you will have full control within your admin panel to make the changes you require.
Search Engines have to be definitely kept in mind when building a website. WordPress uses different functions which allow it to be search engine friendly. For example sending pings to other sites, making categories, tagging your posts, use of h1/h2 tags etc. All Meta Description and Meta Keywords can simply be added to each page to your liking.
Visitors to your site can leave comments on individual entries, and through Trackback or Pingback can comment on their own site. You can enable or disable comments on a per-post basis.
Key Features of WordPress
The following is a list of some of the features that come standard with WordPress, however there are literally hundreds of plugins that extend what WordPress does, so the actual functionality is nearly limitless. You are also free to do whatever you like with the WordPress code, extend it or modify in any way or use it for commercial projects without any licensing fees. That is the beauty of free software , free meaning not only price but also the freedom to have complete control over it.
Full standards compliance
WordPress have gone to great lengths to make sure every bit of WordPress generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the W3C. This is important not only for interoperability with today’s browser but also for forward compatibility with the tools of the next generation. Your web site is a beautiful thing, and you should demand nothing less. In this day and age there are not many people who don’t use at least one Social Networking Site. A recent survey suggests that visiting social network sites has become more popular then sending an email.
Changes you make to your templates or entries are reflected immediately on your site, with no need for regenerating static pages.
Pages allow you to manage non-blog content easily, so for example you could have a static “About” page that you manage through WordPress. For an idea of how powerful this is, the entire WordPress.org site could be run off WordPress alone.
Links allow you to create, maintain, and update any number of blogrolls through your administration interface. This is much faster than calling an external blogroll manager.
