WordPress was formed in 2003 and powers nearly 29% of all websites on the entire internet. WordPress’ powerful features helps it stand out from the competition, we take a look at some of these.
Great Looking Design
A beautifully website will not necessarily mean a great website, however it is a good starting point. Alongside engaging content, sound design and a superb user experience we can safely say a website is going in the right direction.
WordPress offer a plethora of beautifully crafted themes to choose from to get you started on your web design project.
One of the biggest improvements we have been seeing for a while now in web design is the focus on seamless ease of use along with great user experience. This is in part due to intuitive navigation design. It may be worth checking the CMS site to see if it is easy to navigate, if not the chances are your site will not be either.
WYSIWYG is an acronym for What You See Is What You Get, this feature on WordPress websites allows for people with little or no coding experience to design web pages effectively and easily.
The native media library on WordPress is great. You can easily upload, edit, resize images, create image galleries and adjust alt tag values for SEO. However, there will come a point where it has limitations, there are though a whole host of WordPress plug-ins to choose from to manage your images. Two popular plug-ins for managing images would be Envira Gallery and Soliloquy.
Drag & Drop Function
This feature allows for websites to be easily customized and built. Drag and drop WordPress page builder allows you to create, edit and customize your site layout without writing any code. There is a great selection of drag and drop page builders to choose from including Beaver Builder and Elementor.
WordPress security is an important topic for every website owner. Each week, Google blacklists around 20,000 websites for malware and around 50,000 for phishing. WordPress offer a support on best practices and there are plug-ins that can be used to help ensure the safety of users visiting a site.
