WordPress is the most widely used content management system in the world, and it’s our CMS of choice. In 2024, around 40% of websites use it, it is stable and secure and has a huge amount of add-on apps (called plugins) and templates (called themes) which are available to use at no cost. WordPress also benefits from being a blogging platform, which helps to extend the reach of your site and build your audience.  By adding a newsletter service, people can subscribe to your blog and receive it as a newsletter whenever you add a new post. Your blog posts can even be linked to your social media accounts.

WordPress is very versatile and easy to maintain. Every time you make an update, the old version of the page is saved automatically so you can revert to it if you’ve made a mistake. You can set the site to backup automatically, so you never need to worry about losing data. If you want to change the appearance, you can use a plugin to do that or even switch themes for a completely new look.

The real advantage of using WordPress is that you own the site – you are not tied to a single hosting company, and are free to move it whenever you wish.

Posts and Pages

Whereas a page is a traditional website page, which can be accessed from the site menu, a post is slightly different; it usually won’t appear on the main menu and all posts will display on a single page (often called ‘Blog’ or ‘News’) as short summaries and a thumbnail, with a link to the full post. If you allow it, anyone can reply to a post (subject to your approval before the reply is shown) and posts can be divided into categories, marked with tags, and will get archived after a while. Posts also show up in RSS feeds, so people can subscribe to your blog or news page through various different apps and web services.

Converting an existing site

Website conversion can just be a matter of choosing a theme, then copying and pasting site content across from your old site to the new WordPress site, although generally it is a little more involved than that. It is often better to start with a conversion so you can keep your existing site content, rather than build a completely new site from scratch. Then you can make changes and additions at your leisure.


While you might find a theme that is close to what you need, some customization is almost always needed to give your site a unique look and maintain consistency with the services or products you offer. You may also have special requirements not met from the available plugins. We can build a ‘child’ theme and one or more custom plugins to meet any requirements you may have.
