What WordPress can do.
When we first meet with our clients to discuss their next website we always write down a wish-list of what they want it to do. These functionality requests range from the simple to complex and each is important. We then discuss the best Content Management System (CMS) to create these functions and often WordPress is the first CMS we think of.
WordPress is an open source project built around a massive community of professional web designers, web developers, content creators and engineers. Being open source means that anyone can access details to develop new features and create plugins to improve functionality.
It’s tempting to think of plugins as bolt-on features. If you want to create custom features, chances are it has been done before and you can add it on to your site and customise it to suit your needs. Plugins solve the fundamental challenge of building a solid website by making it easy for webmasters to create content, sitemaps, features and elements.
