Wordpress Blog

 

When it comes to WordPress, the most popular Content Management System on the planet, there are basically 4 components required to make it all work:

Web hosting, a domain name (free with our preferred hosting), a WordPress theme (many options available for free or premium), and plugins which expand the functionality of the core WordPress  (optional but highly recommended. Thousands of free and premium available).

In today’s fast moving mobile age, we highly recommend that you choose a “mobile responsive wordpress” theme so that it your website is completely optimized for viewing on any device whether it be a computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet or TV etc.

There are many WordPress themes that are already mobile optimized and also stand alone plugins that can generated a fully optimized version of a non-optimized theme. For easy of use and functionality it is much better to begin with a theme that is already mobile ready.

A word of caution… Although there are many, many WordPress plugin options available, the best practice should be “less is best.” The more plugins you add, potentially, the slower your website will load which may affect your new and returning visitors.
