Don’t let your elderly or non-existent website thwart your business’s progress – there are lots of tools you can use to get it on track. If you’re thinking about using WordPress to launch your new site, you may want to consider the advantages and disadvantages to both the free and premium themes.
You’ve heard it before, but it bears repeating: Visitors hate slow-loading sites. If a page takes more than a few seconds to load, visitors tend to move on to something else. So anything you can do to speed things up will only help you retain visitors.
The best thing about WordPress: It’s an open-source platform, on which anyone with some coding chops can build something dazzlingly beautiful and stunningly useful to fill just about any website requirement.
The internet, we’re told, are supposed to make things easier. Socializing comes to mind, as does research (if you can dig your way through all the “fake news”). Collaboration is another. From project management systems to event coordination, the internet has been as essential as phones to communicate and work with others. So why, then, is working on a single document still an archaic process? For the most part, people still use email to share files, which really is not much different from handing a printed piece of paper to a coworker.
Have you noticed how much of our language is infused with words, phrases, and symbols that refer to obsolete technology and practices? We still refer to video clips as “footage,” even though that term originated from the motion picture industry, where scenes are recorded on film that is measured in feet. We might even “tape” TV shows on our DVRs. To call someone on the phone, you “dial” the number, although phones haven’t had dials in ages. To accelerate an electric car, you “step on the gas pedal.” And to save a file in most software programs, you click on an icon that looks like a 3.5-inch floppy disk, even though a growing segment of the population has never seen such an object.
Someone over at WordPress really likes jazz.
All of the major releases of WordPress have code names that honor jazz musicians. The three major releases in the last 12 months have been no exception: Release 4.4, “Clifford” for trumpeter Clifford Brown; 4.5, “Coleman” for saxophonist Coleman Hawkins; and 4.6, “Pepper” for baritone saxophonist “Pepper” Adams III.
You Design. We Code.
