There are many platform options to consider when creating your company website. WordPress is one that appeals to first-time users, or when a website needs to be put together in a short period of time. In addition to its accessible interface, WordPress provides users with a variety of themes, plug-ins and widgets.
One of the primary reasons WordPress is easy to use is its template system, which allows the user to simply input into a pre-determined template. While it is possible to adjust and maintain a WordPress site with the usage of HTML, it is not necessary to have substantial knowledge of HTML to set-up and package the site.
WordPress is known for its large library of themes. These themes affect the look and functionality of the website without altering informational content. You may choose one theme to begin with and input all of the content you want the consumer to have access to. If, at a later date you decide to change the design, you can do so without risk of losing the completed work.
Once your site is set up, plug-ins can be added for more complex graphics, inputting a media-player, encrypting email and an assortment of other applications. Plug-ins help contribute to a more visually appealing and informative website, as well as enable easier contact between you and your client.
These helpful devices can be described as small modules that lend functionality to your site. Some examples of attributes added through the use of widgets are slideshows, a Facebook-like button or a small news slider that updates to display recent company news.
