50 million and counting. That’s the number of websites that the content management system WordPress is running. If you are not a web developer, you may not have heard of WordPress but anyone looking to get the most out of their online marketing should learn the basics.
You’ve probably seen many sites and blogs powered by WordPress. In fact, you’re reading one right now. WordPress started as an easy way to publish a blog but has become a full content management system for web development.
The real power of the system is in the ease of creating or changing the look of a site without having to change the content within the site. WordPress uses themes to style the layout of a site, and then our website experts can add text, images and other content.
WordPress Themes Allow Us To Customize & Maintain Your Site With Ease
A theme is usually ready to use without any specialization, but to really customize a site, we can dig into the php code and write changes.
Themes are beneficial to the owner of a website because, with WordPress, changes can be made easily. Just give your developer a call, and they can login to the WordPress editor, find the page you want to change and make that change quickly and easily- usually within minutes. If you want to really jazz up your site, we can also make changes to the php code of your theme.
Tell Us What You Want Your Site to Be- WordPress Gives Us Unlimited Potential
