Wordpress Guide

Postby Barney » Tue Feb 28, 2012 10:00 am


I recently wrote an article for our sponsors Domainmonster.com on the Wordpress CMS and why you should use it!

Wordpress began as a blogging system way back in 2003. Since then it has built a huge community of users and won numerous industry awards. In the beginning it was a single page where blog posts could be added. Now you can add multiple pages, which can be static, or contain mini blogs of their own. The administrative backend of Wordpress is simple to use and extremely user friendly. This makes it extremely good for first time web designers looking to create a professional looking site with the minimum of coding, graphical editing or testing. There are some extremely prestigious clients using Wordpress, ranging from Volkswagen to Sony to CNN to Jay Z!


Read the full article here!

Hope you enjoy it!

Hi Barney,

I've only used wordpress once, and to be honest I found it tricky to get on with. Once you understand how it works and you get going it becomes easier to pick up, but the first part of understanding it for a novice web designer is quite difficult. I guess it's a case of having to just get on with it, and then picking it up as you go along.

What other similar apps could I use instead of Wordpress? or better still do you know of any good site builders that are a lot simpler? I want to create some web pages for each of my domains, but don't need a separate hosting package for each (too expensive) and want something simple and quick to build. any ideas?

Thanks,

Del

Barney mentioned that wordpress was offered by Domainmonster.com, they also have a site builder that's pretty easy to use. It's called Sitemonster Pro - they've got more info at http://www.domainmonster.com/sitemonsterpro/.

Having said that though Del, they do offer other application installations on their hosting system that you could try (Drupal, Joomla), also you don't need seperate hosting for every site you want to create, you can have upto 100 domains on the top package!

A quick Google search for "WordPress Tutorial" brings up loads of results.

You can learn by watching videos on YouTube, reading articles or getting an ebook! It's a learning curve for everyone but if you dive in head first, you can learn really quickly! Producing top quality websites has never been easier in my opinion!

Using WordPress out of the box is so easy my Gran could probably have something up and running in under an hour.

I can see Domainmonster dont offfer the aforementioned sitemonster pro package anymore but rather something called "website builder". Is this just a new name for the same product or is it actually a new product?

It's actually anew product and in my honest opinion, far superior to that old site monster pro. I use wordpress myself however my sister has a site on "website Builder" and its a very good example of how such a product should be ie USER FRIENDLY. Take a look here http://www.domainmonster.com/website-builder/
