What Is WordPress?

WordPress (WP) is a powerful and flexible Content Management System (CMS) that is adaptable for enabling a myriad customisation & functionality possibilities for any business or blog website, with the use of plugins and WP themes.

Managing Web Content

Coding knowledge is not required to add and remove content on WordPress. Multiple resources are available, enabling business owners to learn the basics, or to train staff members to manage their online content. Content management can also be outsourced.

What is A WordPress Theme?

A WordPress theme is a collection of templates and style sheets that are used to customise the appearance of a website, affecting the way content is displayed on pages and posts powered by WordPress. Themes can be managed and changed in the Dashboard>Appearance>Theme, area of your WordPress site.

Each theme can differ in some ways from another. Choosing a theme is as easy as selecting one with the right features to suit your business needs and taste. Themes can also be modified with the added use of plugins (free and paid) to add functionality, such as galleries, price lists and more.  Siteground has heaps of free blog WordPress themes available. 

Premium themes often come jam packed with added features and are best used for business.

All new sites are quoted with SEO and the premium Divi theme at no extra cost to the client at ACT Websites. We create custom sites using the Divi theme, as the layout possibilities are endless.
