WordPress is one of the many amazing tools that we use here at WUKmedia. Like many tools WordPress isn’t perfect, it does have its flaws. For example when you install new plug-ins that just don’t quite work the way you want them to. However, the positives outweigh the negatives as WordPress is an extremely helpful tool.
WordPress is, to put it simply, a brilliant tool that is user friendly, especially for those who are new to the program. It’s also flexible, so that it is easy to navigate and understand all the features that the tool has to offer. WordPress is also an open source platform, which you can install to your computer! After you install it you can modify it to design dozens of different websites.
The term ‘open source’ means that it gives you the freedom to use it. It is easy to use and available for anyone to use and edit around. In layman’s terms it means that it is free, but it isn’t completely free. There are costs down the line such as extra plug-ins which we will go into next.
On WordPress there are over 2500 themes and more than 30,000 plug-ins that are available to users. These could be installed and used on any website you use through WordPress. However, if you’re wanting the best them you can purchase premium plug-ins. Premium plug-ins allow you to use them for a trial period for a limited time to make sure they are what you are looking for, but after that then you will have to buy them.
Keeping up to date is essential in the web design industry, if you fall behind it can be difficult to get back on track. Learning about possible upcoming trends that are arriving is a good thing to consider however, the tools that you use for web design are always changing and being updated so it’s good to keep your eye on them too.
Overall we would recommend WordPress; it is used by some of the biggest companies in the world, including us! That being said, would recommend leaving web design to the professionals, if you are interested in making it big online call us on 01524 544 744 today!
