Themes

One the great features of WordPress is that users can download a new theme and then switch the site to a complete new makeover. Themes not only change the image of the site they can add new functionality without affecting the the original content. The Themes can be installed via your WordPress front panel or you can upload it using FTP. Just like the standard themes, you can edit the fundamental PHP, HTML & CSS scripts and listings to fully customise your new theme. You can also create your own WordPres them, buy one from a site like “Monster template”, find a free WordPress Theme or get a freelance WordPress developer like myself to design one for you. The optimum solution is to choose a theme close to what you want and get a profession to customise it for you.

Can I use WordPress to update the website design myself?

WordPress is a very good option if you want to maintain a web site yourself. It allows you to update pages and indeed added pages very easily. This setting up of a web site however is not so easy. There are many factors to take into account such as readability, download speeds, marketing the message successfully and optimising it so that it can be found on search engines such as Google. Truthfully, we also like the idea that our customers can edit their pages. The cost of using a professional just a change of few words or perhaps put in a picture may seem a little high in UK. So it’s understandable that the they might like to make some tweaks themselves. WordPress is very good for the amateur to make modest updates to. However, there is a steep learning curve when setting up a web site for the first time – this part is best avoided.
