WordPress has been around since 2003 and is the most popular platform for website design. Over the last few years, WordPress has become the content management software of choice because it is easy to use and has an intuitive interface. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, changing copy content on a regular basis is simple. The beautiful thing about WordPress is its flexibility and the ease of use. We develop all our websites in WordPress and find that all our clients love it cause it gives them the freedom to manage their sites with little interaction from us. However, having the right developer and designer to build it from the beginning is essential whether you start off with a WordPress template, having it custom built or if you are starting off with just a 4 page site. Here are some reasons why we love WordPress and think you will as well:
EASE OF USE
WordPress is very easy to use and has an intuitive interface. Adding new pages, blog posts, images, editing copy content is easy and the results are instant.
MANAGE YOUR SITE FROM ANYWHERE
Because WordPress is browser-based, you can manage your site from anywhere around the world. Just put in your username and password and go to work!
NO HTML REQUIRED
WordPress is a self-contained system and does not require HTML editing software like Dreamweaver. You can create a new page or blog , format text, upload images, upload documents, videos, without any coding experience. WordPress sites load faster than sites created by other editing software like Adobe Contribute or Dreamweaver.
