What is a WordPress CMS?

If you’re looking to create a website and you’re not a techy, you’re probably not yet that familiar with hypertext markup language (HTML) or cascading style sheets (CSS). Instead, you’re likely looking for a content management system or CMS. A CMS allows you to edit all of your pages from one central place. They also allow for a collaborative website, if you have other family or staff you’d like to help you edit your website. You can think of a CMS like having two websites. The first is the CMS, which you need to login to, the second is the public website that everyone sees. As soon as you save a change in the CMS, it automatically appears.

Here at One Day Website, we use the Wordpress CMS. It’s also the easiest to learn, and the most popular. By using WordPress, you’ll get their popular Dashboard, where you can create a new webpage, or blog post, in seconds, without any knowledge of HTML or CSS, it looks more like a Wordprocessor instead.

Add new page

If you have an old or outdated website, we can convert it to a WordPress template. This means it will look the same to your website visitors, but now that it will be using WordPress CMS, you can easily update any of the pages or blog posts at your convenience. And if you find yourself with writers block, don’t hesitate to use our professional copy writers, who can write the content for your website as well, with a focus on your target audience and search engine optimization.
