WordPress is a great content management system for users due to its ease of use, flexibility, and wide range of features. The platform offers a user-friendly interface that allows even non-technical users to create and manage a professional-looking website without the need for extensive coding knowledge. Additionally, WordPress offers a vast array of plugins and themes, providing users with endless customisation options to create a unique and personalised website that meets their specific needs.

With a large community of users, developers, and designers, there is a wealth of resources available to help users get the most out of their WordPress website. All of these factors make WordPress an excellent choice for anyone looking to create a website that is both functional and visually appealing.

What are the pros:

  1. User-Friendly - WordPress has a ‘user-friendly’ interface meaning it is easy to use, even for those with limited technical knowledge.
  2. Customisable - There are thousands of plugins and themes available allowing businesses to customise their website to meet their specific business needs.
  3. SEO - WordPress is optimised for search engines which makes it easier for websites to rank higher in search results.
  4. Responsive - Lots of WordPress themes are responsive meaning they are able to adjust to the size of the screen that the website is being viewed on.
  5. Secure - WordPress is constantly being updated to ensure it is secure and that they are able to address any security concerns. Plugins can also be used to enhance the security of a website.
  6. Cost-effective - WordPress is free and open-source making it a cost-effective solution for building a website.
  7. Large community - with over 60 million users worldwide, WordPress has established a wide community of users meaning it is easy to find help and support when you need it.

Next, the cons:

  1. Security risks - If security plugins are not maintained, there may be risks of security threats or, the website may become vulnerable.
  2. Slow loading speeds - Websites can become slow and ‘bloated’ if too many plugins or customisations are used.
  3. Technical knowledge required - If websites need more advanced customisation, businesses may need technical knowledge to code elements.
  4. Performance issues - In instances of high-traffic websites, performance issues may occur which may require additional resources to optimise speed.

A CMS built upon a 20 year legacy and we've been here to see it all.

It was in 2003 when our director Glen was just finding his feet in computing at the ripe age of 16 years old. With his GCSE's complete Glen went off to college with his GNVQ in IT gaining 4 A*s in the subject he loved. It just so happened that in that very same year, the team from Automattic launched the first version of Wordpress, since then it has been an incredible journey with the platform seeing it flourish.

WordPress is a great platform that we have use on a regular basis to build websites upon. Some of those example clients are Gamers@Hart and Plussed. The Wordpress CMS is so adaptable it can be suitable for any business right out of the box, however as you can see in the two examples it can be designed and customised to exactly how you want it to look, feel and function.

A strong future with a vibrant community

The future of WordPress is expected to continue its growth as a popular content management system, with a focus on improving performance, security, and user experience. WordPress will likely adopt new technologies such as artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things, and continue to expand its mobile and eCommerce capabilities. Additionally, there may be increased competition from other platforms, but WordPress’s strong user base, open-source nature, and extensive plugin ecosystem will likely maintain its position as a leading platform and we’ll certainly be there along the way to support it. Here’s to the ride! 🍾

Glen and StackUp Digital have been an integral part and extension to the Direct Oil team. Their technical knowledge, availability and efficiency has been excellent over the last 18 months.
