Nowadays a hugely popular approach to building websites is to use a Content Management System (CMS), as it gives users a whole number of advantages. Among numerous tools available on the market, one is a true leader – WordPress. Written in PHP, this open source CMS helps quickly create customizable blogs and e-commerce sites. Here is a brief review of the basic components that a WordPress designer has at their disposal.
- Administrative Dashboard. One of the things that make WordPress incredibly popular is its administrative dashboard. Through this panel WordPress users under different accounts can update the content on their sites, upload articles and images to their blogs, or make sure everything is working well. And all of this can be done even by non-technical people without knowledge of WordPress website design.
- Themes. Another great benefit of WordPress is its themes. WordPress theme design is a vast area. WordPress developers have everything they need to give a website any look they wish thanks to the customization tools, such as templates they can edit, widgets, multiple plugins, and theme frameworks. Also, since those themes are placed in a special file away from the site’s content, WordPress theme designer can update them individually at any time and without the fear that they may “break” something in the code.
- Content. The last essential part of WordPress is the content. As mentioned above, themes and content are stored in different parts of an application. The content is actually kept in a database. A feature called the Loop retrieves the content from the database and adds it to the site.
Those are the WordPress main structural blocks in a nutshell. The team of experienced developers at our company Web Peppers wil be happy to design WordPress themes of any type and complexity for you fast and at an affordable price.
