5 reasons why we love WordPress

5 reasons why we love WordPressAll our client projects we deliver use a content management system called WordPress.  We have been using WordPress for many years now and seen it evolve from what started out as a blogging tool to a full blown CMS.

Here are FIVE of the reasons why we love it so much:

1. WordPress is FREE:

Used and contributed to by millions of bloggers from around the world.  WordPress is being constantly updated, enhanced and evolved.

2. Super easy to install:

WordPress allows you to install within minutes without having to be technically minded. There are many tutorials around and if you are running CPanel you can use Fantastico Deluxe’s awesome ONE click install.

3. Access to Themes:

There are thousands and thousands of free themes available on the web ready to install and use.  This changes the appearance of how your website “looks and feels”.

4. Plugins:

A plugin is a way of “extending” or “enhancing” the core functionality or features of WordPress.  We recently implemented an event registration plugin using a plugin called “Event Expresso”. Need to adjust a plug-in? Not a problem. With basic knowledge of PHP, you can modify and adjust these plug-ins to your liking with no fuss.

5. Very SEO friendly:

Using a plugin called “All In One SEO” you can easily optimise each of your pages and posts so that it gives you the best possible chance to generate traffic through Google.  This coupled with the ability to fully customise your URL’s makes this a very SEO friendly tool!
