Be Wordpress

You are Wordpress

Not necessarily your website must be WordPress! WorldPress operates almost 25% of the Internet and the websites that operate a CMS are 50%. Seems that every free-lance graphics artist, creative design firm and retired web designers recommends the best way to create your website is by using the best web design tools available. What is going on with WordPress? Over the years we have created many websites on WordPress and many other platforms.

Today WordPress can still be an optional feature and many of the customers we are hosting and supporting are still on the site, but if you are looking for a new way to manage your website, the right CMS for your site will depend on many different things. As we have noticed, however, these are the main disadvantages of using WordPress:

Speak to any WordPress fan and he'll tell you it can be used for almost anything from a basic blogs utility to creating a Facebook blonde. Whilst there is a huge eco-system of pre-built plug-ins and pre-built topics, many designers are stretching the boundaries of WordPress a little too far from what it was initially developed for: blogs.

The WordPress was initially conceived as a blogsite. Actually, newly added, WordPress doesn't really do much. Often, unexperienced programmers use tens of different plug-ins to include features they didn't create on their WordPress page. You are now at your mercy when these additional codes are refreshed - or not - and so good!

Many different types of technology are available to create a website. A large part of the WordPress coding is still predicated on older coding methods that can keep it open to vulnerabilities. Finally, a large part of the WordPress-Stiftung is over 10 years old! Over the years, if you see WordPress as a home, it has been patch, re-patched, repainted and fitted with drywall elements, but this old, wobbly base is still there.

Conversely, frameworks like Craft use a rugged, popular coding paradigm known as MVC (Model/View/Controller), which means that the underlying object logics (code) are separated from the display or viewing layers (which you and your web browsers end up "seeing"). It is much simpler for a developer to construct on these platforms because there is a shared framework - from the way plug-ins are created on the backend to the way front-end plug-ins are created.

From a functional point of view, since WordPress is quite flaccid in its organisation, topics or plug-ins can often do the same. Changing or extending a site often turns into a pointless search for the place where it hides it. Skilled designers know how to work around the WordPress issues - so they don't drop into the concealed bottom pumps in the cellar - but wouldn't it make much sence to start with clean, contemporary architectural design?

Talking about a hacker, with so many WordPress users, it's important to keep up to date. The WordPress is a bit like entering an appartment building on the somewhat "shady" side of the city: you keep letting them knock on your doors, shake your castles and try to find a way to make a break-in.

What is even more, if you ask WordPress friendly, it will even give you a listing of everyone else in your apartment's name - whether they're in your voice mail or not. Someone who knows your WordPress user name now only needs your passphrase. Since WordPress doesn't stop repeating unsuccessful logins, it's not unusual for automatic scripting to search your site and try 100 different codes at once.

While the " basic " WordPress install itself is safe, this does not apply to the plug-ins needed to enhance WordPress, which are often the most difficult. System such as craft are used less, so you are much less subject to shameful activities. Because a lot of folks use WordPress, it seems to be a great thing at first: if your design is missed, there are others who can fill in the gaps.

However, the obstacle to start building a WordPress projects is quite small. The " bikes " are switched off in other CMSs. Indeed, Craft has been selected by design and development professionals working on big business such as AAB, Associated Press, Atkins, Foursquare, Intel, Progressive and Oakley to run their sites. When you have a small, brochure-based website where you can sometimes tap the contents, any CMS - WordPress included - would probably work well.

Over the years it has better resolved many of the frequent issues we have come across than other solutions and it is getting better and better.
