wordpress websites pros and cons?
i’m getting to the stage where i need a more ‘pro’ looking website for my business than the home brew (a mix of opencart, wordpress blog and a front end made in serif webplus) i’ve gotten away with for the last few years.
just been told to look at wordpress.org (by a company wanting me to pay them to build me a site) as a way of integrating my content, shop section/products and blog.
i thought wp was just a blog thing, i’ll admit i’m not stunningly techy about these things, so can anyone give me some unbiased views please – good or bad.Posted 4 years agokayaker101Member
Use wordpress for a club blog but just started using sqaurespace for a business idea i am starting and I prefer the latter (with squarespace you get a domain name included if you pay for 2 years or so) The squarespace user interface is nice, so you can use as a blog/portfolio and also there is commerce built in.
There are plenty of discounts codes also (i got mine off of the pen addict podcast)Posted 4 years agospacemonkeyMember
WP evolved years ago from being predominantly a blogging platform to more of an all-rounder. Avoid the free themes, get a theme from the likes of ThemeForest or TemplateMonster for the princely sum of say £20-£50 and you’re away.
Plenty of plugins available to do all kinds of funky stuff too.Posted 4 years agodoug_basqueMTB.comSubscriber
I’m WordPress. I got a really basic theme and customized it all by learning (through google) some CSS and php basics and prodding at things with firebug. There is pretty much none of the original theme left. I think it’s great to use and you can just plug things in to do what you want, like my galleries for example. I’m happy with it and although I accept my website isn’t perfect, I think you have to admit its pretty ok given that its been done by someone who didn’t know even how to get hosting a few years ago! The great thing about WordPress is that there is so much documentation online to help you learn how to do things. BasqueMTBPosted 4 years ago
