What is WordPress?
WordPress is a state-of-the-art publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability. WordPress websites and blogsites can be completely custom built from scratch, or an existing WordPress theme or template can be used as a based and then customized. Basically, WordPress is what you use when you want to work with your blogging software, not fight it.
WordPress is an Open Source project. That means hundreds of people all over the world are working on it and creating applications and plug-ins that work with it. It also means you can use WordPress for any website you want without being required to pay anyone a license fee. It was originally designed just for blogging. But because it is so powerful, many developers have created functional and helpful plug-ins that work with WordPress, making it a great tool for the development of business websites as well.
In a standard HTML/CSS website, each page and all of its content is a separate file and in most cases, the page files contain the code for the design and layout as well as the content. Anytime you want to make a change, you have to make it to each page it affects and re-upload the updated files to your server through an FTP account.
With WordPress, all of the content for each page is stored in a single database. The design and aesthetics of the site are stored in separate files that define the theme of the site. This makes updating the design and layout of the site much easier, because you only have to make revisions to the theme files, not the content. Likewise, it means all of your content changes can be made in one place.
What is a Website Content Management System?
A content management system (CMS) is a system that simplifies the publication of content to websites, allowing website owners to update content, change content, and add new content without requiring HTML programming or file upload knowledge.
In many cases, integrating a CMS into your website, like the WordPress Content Management System, allows the user to edit their website in an environment similar to Microsoft Word. This type of CMS uses a WSYISYG (What you see is what you get) editor.
Content Management Systems are becoming more and more popular as business owners and entrepreneurs are turning to the Internet to do business.
Website owners are tired of paying insane prices for even the smallest of website updates. They want to be able to do it themselves and they want to be able to do it whenever it is convenient for them – even if it’s at 2:00 am!
Smart web designers and web developers are offering the integration of content management systems like WordPress (a blogsite based CMS) to provide more flexibility in the sites they produce and to help entrepreneurs and business owners stay in total control of their websites. In fact, Rockwynn’s website is a Custom WordPress website.
