WordPress makes it easy most the time
Web development is a process that doesn’t need to be complicated. I like to use WordPress. The platform just makes sense when you are asking me to take static content and images and code out a beautiful, fully responsive web design from scratch. If I need to add functionality to the site, WordPress has the flexibility to do that too. I must not be alone in this line of thinking, just look at the stats. WordPress’s market share is 59% of all CMS used on the internet. The next closest platform is Joomla at 6.6%1.
For the record, WordPress is not the only platform I work with, I have experience with other ecommerce platforms as well. You can read about those here.
WordPress is a Tool
Imagine being a carpenter and having a magical swiss army knife like tool with tons of different parts you can swap in and out depending on what you need to build that day. That’s the type of tool WordPress is. Regardless of how the content is structured, you can figure out a solution. From utilizing WordPress’s different post types or Advanced Custom Fields, the groundwork has been laid. Your developer can take it from there.
No Design Limitations
We do get asked every so often if WordPress is limiting with regards to the design approach for a website. The answer is always NO! If your site is custom, your web designer should present a design that is an accurate representation of what your site will look like finished. They should also provide that design in multiple viewports for review. From there, your developer will code everything from scratch and create a theme file for the look and feel of your site. Lastly, your functionality is added according to your project scope.
