The end result was certainly what we had been looking for and I feel the website is now as fresh as the day it was handed over. Even I have managed to put up the news items for our GCSE results and A levels!

Why WordPress?

 

1. Ease of use

The editing is done via web-browser, so there is no need to install any special software. It’s simple to create pages, edit copy and insert images. WordPress provides a great, cost-effective experience.

2. Large community and plugin ecosystem

Out of the box, WordPress does not do everything. So, we install the right combination of plugins to add the desired functionality. There are thousands of free plugins available, plus many low-cost commercial ones, so most sites require little or no custom coding, keeping costs down.

It is the world’s most popular CMS, over 30% of all sites are powered by WordPress. This means it’s well supported, making it a long-term solution for web development. We have the expertise needed to select the best plugins and customise them to suit just about any requirements. If needs be, we can write a custom plugin from scratch too. Handy tools such as site search come as standard too. Other useful plugins include SEO optimisation, WooCommerce – perfect for E-Commerce sites – and contact forms among many others.

3. It supports many types of website

All of these can be customised to suit your needs and brand. With our team’s broad knowledge and experience of WordPress and web design, your website’s development is made quick and simple.

4. User permissions workflow

We can set up multiple user accounts, with a flexible permission system, so different members of staff and departments can manage their own areas of the website.

A simple publishing workflow allows draft pages to be saved, reviewed and approved before publishing them.

5. Modern security

WordPress offers constant updates, including for plugins, which keep your site secure. Spam protection plugins are available, which offer peace of mind. WordPress code is always being tested and the team are quick to fix vulnerabilities. Alberon also has a range of high-quality hosting services for WordPress sites designed to keep your site secure and protected.
