WordPress is a Content Management System (CMS) and a WordPress site is built with a simple client interface – the WordPress Dashboard. Using the Dashboard you can safely manage your content without fear of breaking the site.
If your site has been designed as just a presence on the web then the chances are that very few changes will need to be made during its lifetime. If however your site represents a constantly changing business or organisation then it is important that you are able to manage your site’s content; add new pages, products and images without incurring extra costs.
A Content Management System is particularly useful if you have an online shop or need to make your customers aware of special offers, available appointments, etc. Once the installation of your site is completed, use of the Dashboard will be fully explained and you will be provided with a set of written instructions for future reference.
During the WordPress Dashboard tuition we will also explain the steps taken to secure your site and database. As part of our website design service we install and activate a WordPress Security Plugin and a simple Firewall which prevent unwanted intrusion to the site’s back-end. This is particularly important if the site has a blog as you may wish to limit the number of login attempts to prevent unauthorised users accessing your site.
Your WordPress site can be enhanced at any time with the addition of one or more of the readily available WordPress plugins:
- Design Options
- Database Backup
The examples above represent just a few of the options available for personalising and optimising your site.
