CONTENT MANAGEMENT SYSTEM

Why WordPress

Firstly, it’s the world’s number one content management system. Over 25% of the websites in existence are built on this continually improving platform. (Update 2023: that number is now close to 45%.)

WordPress is also easy to use and feature-rich. Clients love it because you can manage and control your website, your content and your SEO without being forced to pay a design agency.

Our trainers will guide you through the back-end of your site in a step-by-step fashion. This is a secure area where you can manage all aspects of your website.

There are literally thousands of plugins available for the platform to provide almost any conceivable feature, and of course our in-house development team can create custom modules should the need arise.

WordPress is experimenting with the ability to generate text and images using AI – but that’s all in the future. What we love is what the CMS platform can do right now. At last report, it has over 60K free plug-ins in the WordPress Plugin Repository. It’s the fastest growing CMS in the world. And 43% of sites use WordPress.

The Visual Editor in WordPress is both intuitive and easy to use. It’s often said that “if you can do it in Word you can do it in WordPress”. This ease of use, alongside its rich feature sets, is a key reason why WordPress is such a popular, widespread platform today.

WordPress has flexibility built into its very bones. Templates can be hand-built with CSS, HTML and JQuery, or purchased off the shelf. 

That’s why it has attracted “hero brands” such as NASA, Googles Venture, Samsung, Coca Cola, Mercedes Benz and Microsoft.

As with any CMS, it’s important to keep WP security up to date, a service we offer as a part of our ongoing support. We highly recommend two factor authentication (2FA).

Popular Plugins

There are so many great plugins available for WordPress that it can be hard to know where to start.

To help your decision-making process, our Adelaide WordPress agency team has put together a list of some of the most popular plugins and what they do.

However, while there are more than 60,000 plug-ins available for WP, always they need to be tested to ensure they are bug-free and compatible with your existing website and future digital plans. If you are taking a DIY approach, always keep this in mind.
