For those of you who have been living under a rock for the last 10 years, WordPress is a full featured Content Management System which was basing on an older blogging platform called b2.  Over 25 million people have chosen to install WordPress to run their website. So lets ask the obvious questions.....

So what make WordPress so special?

Well, because of the huge amount of people who work with WordPress, this has led to a huge amount of support, plugins, scripts and more importantly themes being created.  This allows an individual with little or no web design knowledge to create a smart looking website on a very small budget because WordPress is free.

How do I start using WordPress?

Well first you will need some web space which meets WordPress’s requirements, you will need to download WordPress and finally you need to following the installation instructions.  After that it’s a small learning curve which is well documented on the WordPress website.

Getting the most out of WordPress.

  • Learn some code.  WordPress is designed to be used by both web developers and general users.  Because of this you can easily make more use of WordPress by learning a small amount of HTML.    A great resource for this is w3schools website
  • Buying a premium WordPress theme.  Unfortunately most free WordPress themes are very basic in looks and can be a little bit boring,  but at a cost of about £20 you can purchase a beautiful new look for your website with a small amount of support from the developer to help you take advantage of it.  One of the best resources for Premium WordPress Themes is Themeforst.

In fact, our very own Computer Franchise website has been built with WordPress! This is a template using custom widgets, short codes, some custom styling and other alterations. Take a look....
