WordPress is a powerful, yet simple, blog management system which runs online. Installation and customization is simple, it can be skinned to look like almost anything and if you don’t have a design in mind there are hundreds of themes available. The license allows us to modify the templates as much as we like and does not even require we credit WordPress… oh and its completely free!

This makes WordPress a great, highly fexible content management system, take a look at our post on using WordPress as a content management system here.

But WordPress is just as useful ‘out of the box’, it contains everything you need to set up and manage a successful blog and can be a great asset to your website, giving it an up-to-date feeling, while increasing repeat visits and improving SEO. There are thousands of plug-ins available for WordPress which do a range of things from running automatic backups and basic security, to automatically updating your Twitter account and turning your blog into a photo gallery.

Some examples:

Button Bag
Blog for Button Bag, Craft Kits for Children e-commerce website, this was added to their current website with a slightly modified design, makes use of plugins WP-print and Sexy Bookmarks, as well as Breadcrumb trail and All in one SEO pack.

Get Cycling News
Wordpress was added to the Get Cycling website to handle their latest news. It is a simple, single category blog which feeds the latest 4 posts onto the home page.

Get Cycling sister company, Cyclorama wanted a blog to run alongside their current website, the blog was designed to look like the rest of the site and has been made good use of, with plenty of articles, links to other blogs, a feed from their Twitter account and ‘share this’ social bookmarking links.

The theme was chosen by the client from the WordPress theme directory and modified to meet the blogs requirements.
