The Power of WordPress
A site built upon the open source WordPress platform can take many shapes and perform many tasks. One common use it the Web Log or Blog. The term “blog” has a somewhat vague connotation associated with it that might imply a personal diary. But this is far from the total truth and only serves to mask the potential that a WordPress site can offer. Personal thoughts of the day surely can be interesting if coming from a creative writer with a vivid imagination so we don’t mean to imply the opposite. But for people who have a different focus, perhaps that may be related to an organization or a business, we want to underscore the sometimes overlooked potential of Content Management for the organization and dissemination of information.
WordPress is a great way to organize your informational content. By using pages and posts, as well as categories, keywords and slugs, a site owner can offer a huge resource of information that is easy for the user to find.
WordPress websites can be set up with a wide variety of styles or themes that are free and offer an assortment of functional advantages. There are also professionally programmed theme frameworks that offer greater leverage of web functionallity and specifically targetted features. The Crouch Group can set up a Wordpress installation for your needs, connected to a MySQL database with unique styling for a one-of-a-kind dynamic site.
