Wordpress® Website Design & Development

Image of vintage pin up with and Edward de Bono quote saying Creative Thinking - in terms of dea creativity - is not a mystical talent. It is a skill that can be practised and nurtured.

What is Wordpress®?

Wordpress® is highly advanced, open-source web software you can download for free and use to create a website or blog.

Why Use Wordpress® as a CMS (Content Management System)?

Miss Blossom Design™ generally recommend a client choose Wordpress® on which to build a site because the client has requested independent hosting and also wants the ability to manage the content of their site, through an easy to navigate admin section or CMS.

Wordpress® is good for "hands on" web owners who have some web savvy or are prepared to do research and dedicate time to manging their site. If you don't want to get your hands "under the hood" you probably should have a static boutique, informational website designed and built, that Miss Blossom Design™ can update for you when you need it.

What You Can Use Wordpress® For?

Wordpress® started as just a blogging system, but has now evolved exponentially and can actually be used as a complete CMS and so much more through the thousands of plug-ins, widgets and themes. Wordpress® is limited only by your imagination.

Wordpress® Key Features

The following is a list of some of the features that come standard with Wordpress® , however there are literally hundreds of plug-ins that extend what Wordpress® does, so the actual functionality is nearly limitless. You are also free to do whatever you like with the Wordpress® code, extend it or modify in any way or use it for commercial projects without any licensing fees. That is the beauty of free software, free meaning not only price but also the freedom to have complete control over it.

  • Full standards compliance — Wordpress® Developers have gone to great lengths to make sure every bit of Wordpress® generated code is in full compliance with the standards of the W3C. This is important not only for interoperability with today’s browser but also for forward compatibility with the tools of the next generation.

  • No rebuilding — Changes Miss Blossom Design™ make to your templates or entries are reflected immediately on your site, with no need for regenerating static pages.

  • Wordpress® Pages — Pages allow you to manage non-blog content easily, so for example you could have a static "About" page that you manage through Wordpress® . Blossom® build non-blog sites using Wordpress® on a regular basis.

  • Wordpress® Links - Links allow you to create, maintain, and update any number of logrollings (link lists) through your administration interface.

  • Wordpress® Themes — Wordpress® comes with a full theme system which means that we can design your site to look exactly as your want it to.

  • Cross-blog communication tools— Wordpress® fully supports both the Traceback and Pingback standards, and we are committed to supporting future standards as they develop.

  • Comments — If you choose, your visitors can leave comments on individual entries, and through Traceback or Pingback can comment on their own site. You can enable or disable comments on a per-post basis.

  • Spam protection — Out of the box Wordpress® comes with very robust tools such as an integrated blacklist and open proxy checker to manage and eliminate comment spam on your blog, and there is also a rich array of plug-ins that can take this functionality a step further.

  • Full user registration — Wordpress® has a built-in user registration system that (if you choose) can allow people to register and maintain profiles and leave authenticated comments on your blog. You can optionally close comments for non-registered users. There are also plug-ins that hide posts from lower level users.

  • Password Protected Posts — You can give passwords to individual posts to hide them from the public. You can also have private posts which are viewable only by their author.

  • Easy upgrades — Upgrading from previous versions and other software is a piece of cake. This means managing your site software security is simple.

  • Work flow — You can have types of users that can only post drafts, not publish to the front page.

  • Typographical niceties — Wordpress® uses the Texture engine to intelligently convert plain ASCII into typographically correct XHTML entities. This includes quotes, apostrophes, ellipses, em and en dashes, multiplication symbols, and ampersands. For information about the proper use of such entities see Peter Sheerin's article The Trouble With Em ’n En.

  • Intelligent text formatting — If you've dealt with systems that convert new lines to line breaks before you know why they have a bad name: if you have any sort of HTML they butcher it by putting tags after every new line indiscriminately, breaking your formatting and validation. Our function for this intelligently avoids places where you already have breaks and block-level HTML tags, so you can leave it on without worrying about it breaking your code.

  • Multiple authors — Wordpress’ highly advanced user system allows up to 10 levels of users, with different levels having different (and configurable) privileges with regard to publishing, editing, options, and other users.

  • Bookmarklets — Cross-browser bookmarklets make it easy to publish to your blog or add links to your blogroll with a minimum of effort.

  • Ping away — Wordpress® supports pinging Ping-O-Matic, which means maximum exposure for your blog to search engines.

There’s much more, but these are the highlights.
