Keep reading to know how easy using WordPress to build your website can be without taking the time to learn the code.
There are many different ways that you can build a website. Before I go any further, I want to make it perfectly clear that I am not an expert coder, and when I first started building websites, I had very little technical experience. Given my background, please consider that any advice within this article is aimed at webmasters that range in skill levels from beginner to expert.
WordPress is unique in that it is free, easy to use, and dynamic. Generally speaking, especially when it comes to software or any CMS (Content Management Systems), you will need to pick two of those elements, but will rarely get all three. WordPress is not in the business of upselling or promoting their product to where they can get you on a paid model. Instead, the proprietary platform (which many still unfairly associate primarily with blogs), is entirely free in its usage.
Building Blogs or Traditional Websites
WordPress allows users to build their websites in many different ways. A webmaster can either build a standard blog, a traditional site with static content, or a hybrid of the two. The backend makes it very easy to run a website where you can intertwine posts and static pages, or to instead build using one or the other exclusively.
The real benefit to using WordPress is found in its ability to be both simple and extremely dynamic at the same time. For example, third party plug ins can be downloaded added to your website in a matter of seconds. These plugins can aid in everything from your SEO efforts to shopping carts and everything in between. As is the case with WordPress itself, the best part about the majority of these plug ins is that they are entirely free to use. If you are unfamiliar with WP, you will undoubtedly be amazed at the breadth of high quality, free tools and plug ins at your disposal.
Remote, Easy Access to Your Website
Since WordPress is not reliant on a downloaded client, you will be able to modify and build your website from any web browser. To edit and build a website in WordPress, you will log in to yourwebsite.com/wp-admin and then input your username and password. This log in url can be altered, but is the standard destination url used by most. Users can easily work on their site from almost any device imaginable. While many other platforms offer a similar user experience, it is important to discern this capability of WordPress from what you would be required to use if you built your site on a product like Dreamweaver.
Ease of Building and Development
Even learning how to properly add images to a page can be a small challenge for the most novice webmaster. When you are building a site in WordPress, however, the process could not be made any simpler. The built in page and post editors allow WordPress’ usability level to be roughly in line for the expertise you would need to create a document in Microsoft Word. There is no need to be an expert in any form of coding language; not even basic HTML. If you have successfully installed WordPress itself onto your website, the odds are that you will have very little trouble adding content to your website.
There are many different changes that you will want to make as time progresses and your website continues to develop. For example, you may want to change the way that hyperlinks are written by default. If you have historically created posts using a time stamp and a page title, you can retroactively change all of your pages to include a new format of your choosing. Rather than needing to 301 or manually edit each and every page of your site, WordPress will take care of this for you.
Editing and managing comments, users, authors, and so on and so forth is also a very basic process. Filters and varied plugins can be used to help cut down on any number of unwanted comments and users, and your backend will make it easy to monitor visitor interaction with your website. Automatic backups of your content and data, a selection of premade themes and designs, and customizable and simplistic widgets are just a few of the additional facets of the greater WordPress experience. We may be biased at Flytonic in our patronage of WordPress as the ultimate way to build a website, but we have little doubt that you will be thrilled with its ability to produce extremely high quality websites in a very cost and time efficient matter.
We strongly hope that this post has been of great help if you have been thinking of using WordPress to build your website. The good news is that you only need a little help and your website can be up and longer even before you know it. Creating a WordPress website as the platform is one of the most affordable solutions available.
