WordPress website design

If you’ve heard of WordPress but are unsure of what it’s about, then we can help. We offer bespoke website design as well as WordPress Themes.

WordPress is a full Content Management System (CMS) that allows you to edit and update your website. Text, images, videos, PDFs, news items and pages can all be added to your site through the CMS.

WordPress is the most popular CMS and according to these statistics its popularity is still growing. The key to this is its functionality and usability. Functionality is in the thousands of Plugins available, from SEO to ecommerce to Twitter feeds. Usability relates to its ease of use, so even non-techie users can update their own site.

The reasons we use WordPress for our CMS:

  • It is open source software so it’s open to all users and can be updated by any web developer. Using a bespoke content management system means the system is owned by the developer.
  • It has thousands of pre-built plug-ins to improve the website’s functionality – these range from ecommerce to event management to SEO. Plugins can be utilised by Cumbria Museum Consortium and provide an innovative use of existing online resources and functionality to help the organisation reach their goal within the budget and schedule.
  • It is user-friendly, one client described updating their website as easy as sending an email. We also offer try before you buy so users can trial WordPress.
  • It is adaptable, we’ve built many WordPress sites to serve a variety of purposes. Membership database, online booking, ecommerce and mapping are all examples of how we’ve taken the WordPress platform and developed it.
