Nowadays a lot of people choose WordPress(WP) content management system because it is easy to use, operate and cheaper to build. Is it really? We think it is not and this is why.
First of all, WP is an open source product and millions of people can get it for free and also determine the weakest parts of it. WP is vulnerable if you don’t update it frequently but if you do you face another problem: not all plugins and themes adapt quick to the updates and they simply can stop working. When plugins don’t work your website struggles, does not operate as it should be and your clients become unsatisfied. You need to have a lot of programming knowledge if you want to edit and adapt the plugins to the newest WP versions. When themes don’t work well the website does not look good. Of course, you can leave the website as it is and never update it but as we wrote above the website will become very vulnerable and an easy catch for hackers. Also, a lot of plugins of your WP website slow down loading time and it harms Google rankings.
Secondly, some things on the WP CMS simply don’t work. OK, they can work but it will cost you more then to build a whole custom website. The WP code is very tough and you need to have some knowledge not only in PHP but in WP’s framework and CSS also. For example, J-webdesigns Content management system has Reviews, Calendars and Bookings features. All the information regarding those features goes to content management and user is able to edit/remove the information from the inside. In WP you can’t get such features or at least I didn’t see this anywhere on any escort agency website in London and UK.
WP has a Twitter plugin but it is just a ‘click a button feature’. Our twitter feature automatically generates the posts and you don’t need to create them yourself. Our Twitter feature counts every update on the website and posts it on Twitter website: new reviews, new profiles, news, updates on profiles. You save time and money. That will not be an easy task to WP content management system or at least I didn’t see it anywhere on any other escort agency website in UK.
Overall, WP content management system is not flexible and hard to deal with. WP might be cheap in the beginning but if you will want to update your website in future be ready to spend some pretty money.
I feel surprised when people pay money for installing WP websites. Why to pay money for what is free? Think and choose wisely.
