Websites built using content management system software, including WordPress, Joomla and Shopify
Once set up these software packages are user-friendly, they give the client (you) straightforward access and the ability to update and add site content. To make it all work, first there is a good deal of thought and some coding to put into it, that's where I come in.
I'm enthusiastic about WordPress, which this site runs on. The software was established in 2003 and is maturing nicely and keeping relevant, one of the best things about it, is the community spirit. There are now more that 10 million WordPress websites globally and it's WooCommerce plug-in run over 40% of all online stores. This free open sourced software is used on websites from large corporations like Mercedes Benz, news outlets including The Sun newspaper, also many ecommerce, Honest Brew and booking sites The Center for Legal Studies, to simple blogs and single page sites.
How we view a website varies, one in five people in the UK have a disability, from the serious to something as now-days minor, such as wearing glasses. For more information on disability there's Papworth Trust’s Disability Facts and Figures 2018 report. So we mustn’t assume everyone uses the web in the same way you do.
Just because you can, doesn’t mean you should
I have to always keep in mind that the client or me are not who the site is for, it’s not a vanity project for either of us, it’s to communicate or sell from.
