WordPress Designer London

Wordpress Web DevelopmentGenesis WordPress FrameworkWordPress is perhaps the most widely used blogging software in use today. But WordPress has many more uses up its sleeve. In addition to blogging, with WordPress you can also run websites and set up online stores. If you are looking for a WordPress designer in London, Squeeze Digital should be your first port of call.

A CMS (Content Management System) is a way to manage your website. You can manage the development of your site and make updates easily and quickly. As little as 10 years ago, the same software was worth hundreds of thousands to those blue chip companies that could afford it. Now, the software is accessible, versatile, extremely powerful and more importantly, comes with a FREE pricetag. With its amazing online community of enthusiasts and developers, it is guaranteed to be around for many years.

WordPress’s stand out benefits
Although originally designed as a blogging platform, simple modifications can enable it to perform as a fully-functioning website. Due to its roots as a blogging platform it has some powerful advantages over other CMS systems. Reasons to choose WordPress are:

  • Simplicity. You need a system that is easy to understand and that non-technical staff can use to quickly publish new content ie Newsletters, Latest News etc.
  • Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).  Even Matt Cutts of Google agrees “WordPress is made to do SEO well” Here is a video by Mr Cutts regarding WordPress for small business.
  • There is a huge community of developers creating new functionality via “plug-ins” that create additional features which extend the power of WordPress even further. If you want your website to have a specific function, there is a good chance that it has already been created.

For small and medium-sized businesses looking for simple ways to manage their online resources quickly and easily, then WordPress is the perfect solution. Squeeze media can do the hard work in setting up your WordPress framework, leaving it ready for you to manage day-to-day.

Joomla CMS

Joomla Designer Lambeth

What is Joomla?

Joomla (like WordPress) is an open source Content Management System (CMS) and having started as one of the originals, remains one of the most popular of the free content management systems available today.

In brief, a CMS is a system where the HTML pages are created through the scripting in the software, this means that the pages are all active and are stored in a database. This is all managed easily behind the scenes and can be accessed simply from a web browser.

A great benefit of Joopla is that because the software is free to use without any licence and is considered ‘open source’, there is a strong community of volunteer developers who constantly improve the software, creating new themes and extensions for the platform.

Is a commercial CMS better?

For blue chip company’s, a bespoke CMS may be the answer. However with high set-up costs it will often require additional functionality raising the costs further. Joomla on the other hand is totally free to use! It has the same capabilities and no cost. This makes it a fairly simple deciscion for many business owners to go with and the money that is saved can be utilised in customising other areas, such as graphics and themes.

Joomla Themes

There are an abundance of fantastic pre designed themes available to Joomla users. Many are free, although you will probably want to pay to create customised graphics to suit the branding of your business. Joomla is a great solution for small and medium-sized businesses that are looking for a cost effective yet highly functional website.
