WordPress is the most popular content management system in the world. We use WordPress to power the majority of the sites we build. There are many good reasons for this. Firstly, WordPress is a stable platform and one of the most advanced available. As a hosted solution, it is a constantly evolving product. It is updated regularly by Matt Mullenweg, “Head of Bug Creation”, and the rest of the development team. As well as by a very strong community of worldwide independent developers who are constantly pushing the boundaries of what is possible using this platform. This means that the functionality is constantly responding to the changing requirements of digital marketing professionals, amongst others. More information about the standard features and functionality of WordPress can be found at WordPress.org.
The only issue with WordPress, and the open source nature of its code, is security. However, at LS Digital Media, we are experts in securing WordPress. Additionally, best-practice dictates that your site is fully backed up on a regular basis to ensure that, should the worst happen, your site can be back up and running very quickly.
The best way to find the answer to your question about WordPress is normally at the WordPress Forums. However the WordPress Codex is another great option. Don’t be put off by the name ‘Codex’. It’s really just ‘the online manual for WordPress and a living repository for WordPress information and documentation’. I.e. very helpful indeed! You can find it here: WordPress Codex.
A hacked site is every webmaster and digital marketer’s worst nightmare. When the site is hacked not only is it unable to serve the very function for which it was built, it may be actively harming your good name with search engines such as Google. That is why, when using WordPress, security has to be an important consideration. We have the skills and experience to make sure that your site stays up.
