Why use WordPress to design your website.

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) which powers millions of websites. It’s a great solution for small businesses who want to manage their own content, or for designers who want to offer clients an easy way to update their own sites. This means that our WordPress designed websites can be delivered to our clients ready for them to use with no monthly contract fees.

How we use WordPress to design a website.

In addition to why, it is how we use WordPress to design a website that makes it easy to use. WordPress is the best and most commonly used content management system on the internet. With WordPress, we design a website our clients can maintain without any experience or knowledge of coding. Clients can use it to create their own blog. Add products to their portfolio. Or make changes to pricing without the need to call the developer. It is easy to use and has an incredible amount of flexibility. There are hundreds of themes we can use to design websites and hundreds of plugins which is how we design a website that is so user friendly. So lets look at our 5 favourite plugins we use for our WordPress website design service.

Advanced Custom Fields PRO.

With this plugin we customise WordPress with powerful, professional and intuitive fields. The field builder allows us to quickly and easily add fields to WP edit screens with only the click of a few buttons! We use the fields to add text, checkboxes, images, tabs and buttons. It really is a great help to our UK WordPress website designers.

Forminator.

The Forminator plugin is used to add forms to websites. It lets us capture user information (in as much detailed as we like), engage users with interactive polls that show real-time results and graphs, “no wrong answer” Facebook-style quizzes and knowledge tests. We can have it take payments or make calculations directly from your website. It is so much more than ‘Just a form’ to collect emails.

Yoast SEO

The first true all-in-one SEO solution for WordPress, including on-page content analysis, XML sitemaps and much more. It’s like having an SEO expert looking over your shoulder helping you to get your website found in searches. It helps with adding the correct titles and descriptions, gives you a readability rating and then advises how to improve what you have written. It really is a must have plugin on any WordPress website.

WP-Optimize.

A cache is a reserved storage location that collects temporary data to help websites, browsers, and apps load faster. Whether it’s a computer, laptop or phone, web browser or app, you’ll find some variety of a cache. A cache makes it easy to quickly retrieve data, which in turn helps devices run faster so we need to keep it clean. Your WordPress database stores everything that you need for your website – plus many things that you don’t. WP-Optimize Cache clears out all of this unnecessary data, cleans up your tables and even retrieves space lost to data fragmentation. To make sure your website is loading as fast as possible some element fo the website such as images can be compressed to make the files smaller to take less space.
