In this episode, you will explore the when and why of WordPress. When do you use select WordPress for the client? How about a static site instead? Why would you use a Content Management System (CMS)?
You will look at the website and its intent from the perspective of the site owner. Our job, besides delivering a website that meets our client’s wants and needs, is to make it super easy for the site owner to add, change, and manage content. Far too often we add complexity into the backend to help us do our jobs; however, that complexity is not what the client needs. If anything, the site owner might actually break the site or feel overwhelmed by all of the options. We talk about that in this episode too.
If you listen carefully, you can hear the 1s and 0s flowing in your computer.
