WordPress: what is it and why you should love it

WordPress is what’s called a Content Management System (CMS). What that means is that instead of designing every part of the website from the ground up – you just install a website in kit form “straight out of the box” with everything you need already set up and ready to go. Not only that, there are thousands of handy little plugins you can add to the basic website “kit”. So if there is anything you can think of to add to a website – all  you need to do is install the right plugin for it.

There is also an extremely capable and powerful shopping cart plugin called Woocommerce that can turn a WordPress website into ecommerce powerhouse.

The design hangs off this “scaffolding”. So while the control panel in the back end is standardised – the front end that visitors see can be wildly different. So it is easy to set up a website design and layout that is perfect for your particular needs and requirements. Staid business designs, wild whimsy, designs for ecommerce, blogging, artistic endeavours, plumbing, fashion, clubs, used cars, toothbrushes, photography and more can all be catered for.

Admittedly, setting up a WordPress website does require some knowledge but once WordPress is set up and ready to go it is very easy to work with. Around 25% to 30% of every website on the planet is a WordPress website. Making it by far the most popular CMS in the world.
