“THE TALLEST BUILDINGS START WITH A SINGLE BRICK”
Even, if you are not a professional Web Designer, you can still set up a user friendly website in no time at all!
There are many Platforms your site can be set up on, but WealthyAffiliate.com or, also known for discussion purposes as WA, uses WORDPRESS which, in my opinion, is by far one of the most popular (CMS) Content Management Systems .
Instead of requiring extensive coding using HTML code, the new user friendly interface allows the use of templates which can be adjusted to any basic format.
Other Content Management Systems beside WORDPRESS, are: Drupal, Joomla, Magento, My SQL, Typ03, PHP, Python, etc.
But, many things come into consideration when building a web site. If this is your first website, you may not have to concern yourself with certain issues such as:
- Do you need a very high enterprise level of security such as that used by many government websites which use Drupal?
- How many different templates or content types do you need?
- How quickly do you want to bring your site to fruition and what level of development cost are you willing to incur to see the project through.
WORDPRESS will be a simple inexpensive alternative that can solve many problems using Plugins
Plugins are ways to extend and add to the functionality of the WORDPRESS software. The plugins allow the user to “tailor” their site to specific needs. In fact WORDPRESS.ORG has a repository with many but not all WORDPRESS plugins. Many of these plugins are available in the general domain.
For example, “AKISMET” is a WordPress plugin. It is used by millions and is possibly the best way in the world to protect your webpage or blog from comment and trackback spam.
So, WordPress is valuable in that:
- It optimizes the servers being used.
- It is a free tool.
- It is easy to use.
You can therefore, be confident that it will be a superior tool for you!
Remember that the community at WA which consists of thousands worldwide will also be available to guide and help you Install and Customize your WordPress site. You can get an answer to your question often within minutes through the open forum or almost always within 24 hours from the support staff.
