I prefer to use WordPress to build websites because it enables my customers to edit the content of their website without any knowledge of HTML on complicated and persnickety web publishing tools that cost hundreds of dollars and leave you at the mercy of the schedule of web designer’s schedules.
The beauty of any CMS (Content Management System) is that all of the work that you pour into your website is databased and flexible.
Databased is better
When your posts are catalogued in a database the primary benefit is that the information is categorized and can be displayed in very different ways if you choose to upgrade the theme of your website (change the way it looks, feels and navigates). After a little tweaking to make sure everything is where you want it to be, the database (mySQL) has everything right where you left it when it was in it’s old skin.
Look at it like this…
How would you like to be driving a car that looked newer the more you drove it, and if that weren’t betterer enough, a car that also allowed you to completely change by just snapping on a new body!
That is precisely what WordPress, Joomla or any other CMS does for you website!!!
One of the reasons so many folks are using WordPress is that it is flexible. As I explained above with regards to the advantages of databasing your content, flexibility means exactly what you’d think it should mean as you work with a system that allows you to keep it fresh and new (without having to learn HTML); but there’s more…
Flexibility with WordPress means that you can add plugins and widgets. In plain English that means that you can add “things that show up on your website” by just adding a plugin or a widget. Don’t worry, you don’t need to know how to do this, I’ll take care of that for you. But add ins such as custom calendars, social media comments, and literally thousands of other options available (most are free) mean that you get a very chic website that has all the latest bells and whistles.
