Many things are the same but there is a difference in both options and cost. What should you look for?
Exploring WordPress to see what it can do and what is it all about is where most begin. More and more people are depending on it for their website but how many really know what they are using and what it can do is the question.
WordPress 4.4 is released and ready, are you? Soon you will see that Update button again asking you to upgrade your site.
This update promises to have a number of updates and additions to it function and appearance. This can be good and bad at the same time. Considering the variety of Themes and Plugins being used today, you really want to be sure your site is ready for the latest version of WordPress.
The next release of WordPress is scheduled for release on December 8th. Are you ready?
Keeping your WordPress site up to date is important and you want to do all you can to make sure it is. You also want to be sure everything is still working as it should.
Many sites are fairly simple but others are more complex. With the use of Plugins and other customization your site may not just update as it should. “The White Screen of Death” where did my site go?
If this has ever happened to you, then you know what I am talking about and to the rest of you that when it happens to you I can tell you that you will remember it.
Is your website Mobile Friendly? Is it Responsive?
It is becoming more important that your website be as Mobile Friendly as possible. Your website should at least be utilizing a Responsive Design, Template or Theme.
If your website is over 2 years old and you haven’t had it updated or redesigned then chances are your website is not friendly or responsive.
Selecting the right Theme for you WordPress website can make all the difference.
Unless you are a web designer or work in that industry you probably don’t know a whole lot about what a Theme is and what it functions it serves.
The WordPress Theme you use or have developed will define a great deal of things you can do with WordPress.
When it comes to selecting a Theme, you have 4 choices:
- You can use one of the Free Themes available for WordPress
- You can buy and use a Theme that is available for WordPress
- You can customize the Free or Purchased Theme you selected
- You can have a Theme Created for you by a designer
The question – Where is the best place to Host my WordPress Site? – is not an easy question to answer.
More and more web hosting providers are offering hosting packages specific for WordPress. Is that needed to have a WordPress site? The answer is NO, not at all.
You can host a WordPress website on any hosting package offered today.
If you are going to use or have a WordPress site you should take the time to familiarize yourself with what features and options you have with your current hosting provider. Package for package provider for provider they all differ in what they offer and what limits exist. Some offer unlimited others can be very limited. And as always pricing, what am I getting for my money? is a question you should ask.
If you have or are thinking about using WordPress here a few things you will want to know.
WordPress 4.4 Beta 2 was published yesterday. If you plan on using WordPress for your website the one term you will learn quickly will be Updates. It seems every time I login to a WordPress site there are update notices.
Keeping your WordPress & Plugins up to date will be a very frequent thing and you do want to keep everything update and working.
If you have a WordPress Website, one of the choices you have is if you would like to allow comments on your Blog.
Enabling comments is something you really want to think over. Many of the comments you will get will be spam, spam and more spam.
You can turn on comments at anytime but it will take time to build up your users so you can minimize the amount of unwanted comments.
If you can get people to participate that’s great but it will not happen by itself. You need to make it happen. This means you will have to monitor, manage and respond to the comments people post on your blog. Continue reading
