WordPress is an award-winning content management system (CMS) web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog. We like to say that WordPress is both free and priceless at the same time. The core software is built by hundreds of community volunteers, and when you’re ready for more there are thousands of plugins and themes available to transform your site into almost anything you can imagine. Over 60 million people have chosen WordPress to power the place on the web they call “home” .
We have recently developed many Wordpress driven websites, We recommend the WordPress platform wherever we can. It is quick for clients to learn the backend, meaning you can be up and running, updating your new sites very quickly, even if you have no knowledge of HTML. If you can use a web browser, you can use WordPress, it really is that simple.

What's a content management system (CMS)?
A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your Web site, much like your local public library keeps track of books and stores them. Content can be simple text, photos, music, video, documents, or just about anything you can think of. A major advantage of using a CMS is that it requires almost no technical skill or knowledge to manage. Since the CMS manages all your content, you don't have to.
What we do for you is setup the basic site, Installing the theme and customising it all to suit your needs, When your happy with it we can either show you how to add all your own pages or add them all for you, you will need then to supply us with all the graphics (photographs) and the content for each page (words).
