WordPress is a popular Content Management System (CMS) which is utilized by roughly 1 out of every 5 websites today. It has grown from a blogging platform to a full-fledged website development and maintenance tool. It has been a key factor in the growth of online marketing and many other lines of business.

Its popularity and widespread usage is due in large part to its ease of use. WordPress uses themes to setup the layout of a website and has thousands of free themes available to choose from. In addition, there are many great themes available for purchase including premade yet highly customizable options as well as others that are completely customized to your specs.

In addition to themes, WordPress also has several thousand plugins available. Plugins extend the functionality and operability of the site and their usages range widely from things like adding social media icons to your pages to providing spam blocking services. (We love Akismet!)

Another reason WordPress is so popular remains to be its blogging capabilities. A hand-coded website typically requires changes to be made by the Web Developer or Web Master updating the site files and uploading the new files to the host. WordPress allows anyone with login access and security permissions to upload and edit content immediately.

WordPress Maintenance

A few of the most significant benefits of using WordPress also create a challenge that the site owner needs to take into consideration. One of the many benefits to being able to utilize the themes and plugins is that most of them are updated regularly to fix any security vulnerabilities or functionality issues. This is a great service that helps keep your website up and running smoothly and safely with one caveat: the software must be updated and tested manually to ensure proper compatibility.

Any time that there is an update to the WordPress software, your theme, or any of the plugins you’re using, your site should be tested to ensure it’s compatible with the updates and then updated and tested. Most of the time all of the software code plays nicely together, but occasionally there are conflicts that need to be worked out.

An experienced employee or business owner could possibly handle most updates, but if you’re like most business owners, you don’t have the time or interest in learning how to do this and then actually do it each month. Fortunately, Devadigm is here to help!
