A Few Reasons Why We Love WordPress
Here are just some of the reasons we find it to be the best.
1. It’s Open Source. Simply put, open source means that it’s free. But not only is WP free, it’s supported by thousands of developers. These developers continue to improve upon the platform, and out of all the CMS’s available, it’s by far the most popular. We love the fact that we build upon a platform that is continuously growing and something that is available to everyone, this means we never build our clients into a corner.
2. Available Plugins. Plugins are small self contained programs that help enhance the functionality of your website. The WordPress developer community provides thousands of pre-built Plugins that quickly install and work with your existing site. What ever you may need for your site, it’s likely there’s already a Plugin that can do it and if not, Moonbase3 can build you a custom plugin from scratch.
3. Choice of Themes. The theme is your websites overall appearance: the look, the colors, the layout. Just like plugins there are thousands of (both free and paid) themes available to WordPress users. Easy to install and full of functionality, themes can be an affordable way to get a professional look for your WordPress site.
4. Simple and Familiar. The WordPress editor is simple and is much like editing in Microsoft Word; so if you can edit a Word Document, you can edit in WordPress. This ensures even the not so tech savy can control and manage their content easily.
5. SEO. SEO, Search Engine Optimization, means you optimize the website’s code, to help your rankings, when being searched by Google, Bing or other search engines. The code generated by WordPress has been engineered to give your website the best SEO Possible. There are also additional SEO Plugins available that we have had great success with.
