What is WordPress ?
Back in the olden days of web design (you know, the 90's people created websites using static HTML pages. These websites were made up of files – a separate file for each page – and every time you wanted to make an update, you had to upload a new file. There were limitations on the ways you could lay these websites out, the functions you could include, and how useful they could be.
In our humble opinion, anyone still using a static HTML website is crazy.
In these modern times, one of the most popular platforms for building a website is WordPress. When most non-web people think of WordPress, they think of blogs. But WordPress is far more than blogs. WordPress is an open source content management system (CMS) with powerful capabilities.
What’s so great about WordPress?
WordPress is an open source CMS – which means it is free to use. Because access to WordPress is so easy, developers from all over the world have contributed to the WordPress community. WordPress has an enormous following of loyal supporters, and this translates directly into new developments, plugins, capabilities, and other advances to the platform all the time. People are also constantly creating new WordPress themes, offering free advice and support, and doing whatever they can to make WordPress bigger and better. For the latest developments visit WordPress.org.
Why do we love it?
All that community collaboration has made WordPress the simplest, sleekest content management system out there. Not only is it easy for us to design and develop top-quality websites using WordPress, customising those websites and pushing them to the limits of their capabilities is also a breeze. And the best part of all this – WordPress’ ease of use makes it simple for you, the website owner, to maintain your website with little to no help from us. Once we have your website up and running, you’ll be able to hit the ground running with a minimal amount of training. (Other CMS can take up to 20 hours to learn at a basic level, and even then, they’re still confusing.)

wordpress development and website design
One of the ways in which the team at SnippetBucket, Graphic Design & Web Development creates websites is using the WordPress platform.
When most people think of WordPress, they think of blogs. However, WordPress is also used to create full-scale business websites. Major companies such as Nokia, American Express, Coca-Cola, E bay, and People Magazine as well as small stores turn to WordPress to build sites that are dynamic, rich with social media, and rank well in search engine searches like Google.
One of the many benefits of using WordPress is that it performs particularly well when it comes to search. In fact, owners of WordPress sites often take top spots in search engines for coveted keyword phrases. This is due to the search engine optimisation (SEO) abilities and clean code the platform offers. WordPress is “sticky” and sticky is great for SEO as it makes it easy for the search engines to index the content on your site. Another reason companies utilise WordPress is that it happens to provide a very user-friendly content management system (CMS) and experience. This allows anyone on your team to easily update the content without knowing complicated code.
The appeal of WordPress (and the reason we love to use it) is that this platform allows you to create custom websites or utilise a multitude of different themes. Even WordPress themes and templates offer an immense amount of combustibility. So, even if you use the same template someone else is using, you can be sure that our WordPress development and design team will customise your site so it is completely unique. Or, if you’d rather not use an existing WordPress theme at all, we can craft a new theme for you. Your wish is our design challenge.
Finally, we love WordPress because it is open source, which means that developers are constantly contributing to the platform. There are literally thousands of widgets, plugins and themes for users to choose from. Truly, there are few limitations when it comes to building the site of your dreams. WordPress is scalable and can be used for business grade solutions depending on the needs your site requires in terms of functionality and programming. There are many powerful solutions from ecommerce to member-based sites to a social media platform with forums.

What Kinds Of Websites Can WordPress Make?

For example, not only does WordPress power a huge number of business sites and blogs, it’s also the most popular way to create an eCommerce store as well! With WordPress, you can create:
