Are you a business or individual looking to design & build your own website? Rather than learning to code in HTML, WordPress may be the quickest & easiest solution to getting to grips with building websites without a massive learning curve.

The WordPress platform

Learn WordPress web designMillions of websites, from small personal blogs to vast corporate intranet sites are powered by WordPress, it has a small learning curve & if you have enough knowledge to edit social media sites such as Facebook, then you can easily take control of a WordPress site.

One of the main things that attracts people to WordPress is the ability to perform easy edits on your website such as adding text & image content without having to wait around for a web designer to do it. WordPress plugins can bring your site to life & allow you to add a wide range of functionality to your website at the click of a button. From feedback forms, to music & YouTube players.
