Software and Website Coding

The great thing about creating and updating a WordPress website is that there is little coding skills needed when creating, editing, and publishing a new webpage. Of course, having software experience does come in handy to take your basic WordPress website to the next level with sleek plugins and widgets to help enhance the standard functionality of your website.

With the assistance of Dependable Website Management you can pretty much do anything with a plugin, but you want to be careful which plugins you add to your web pages as too many plugins can actually slow your website. This is one of the downfalls of a WordPress website and sometimes, having a WordPress website isn’t what your business is looking for.

Luckily for you, Dependable Website Management is well-versed in creating and designing an HTLM website and even hand-coding it from the ground up to meet your brand’s goals. Below, we’ll look at some of the positives of coding a new website and later discuss some of the ways Dependable Website Management can code beneficial software for your online business.

To start with the basics, if you want more control of your website, the front-end of the website should be coded in HTML (HyperText Markup Language), CSS (Cascading Style Sheets), JavaScript (interactive effects) and PHP (Hypertext Pre-Processor). Together, they allow a developer to create something unique and aesthetically pleasing without using a template like on WordPress.

Static websites (only use HTML and CSS) are capable of being hosted on any web server that can return HTML files. They are the cheapest to develop and host, and many smaller brands use these to get a web presence since most web pages (usually between 5-10) are fixed, i.e. static. Every website user will be met with the same content and thus the website requires little to no updating and/or maintenance. HTML websites can also run on cheaper servers with low resources since they are much harder to hack and take up less room on the server.

HTML websites are a great option if there is minimal updating and change to your website. However, if you building a content-driven website like a food blog then a content management system like WordPress is the way to go. There are plenty of software available for Dependable Website Management to custom-code for your website and even for a new cell phone app.

Plugins, widgets and WordPress are all software. Plugins are commonly used in connection with WordPress content management systems. Plugins add incredible features to websites, and the great thing about WordPress is that it allows programmers to develop thousands of plugins for the WordPress Plugin Market, giving the web developer access to a myriad of powerful software options to give your website extra functionality. Things like custom forms, API connections, SEO, galleries, and animation are all available software options for web developers in the WordPress Plugin Market.

Whereas a plugin works behind the scenes, a widget is front-and-center on your website. In fact, in WordPress, the widget section is listed underneath the “appearances” tab with the admin dashboard. Plugins allow you to add different kind of widgets such as comments, popular posts, maps, calendar, email subscribe, etc.

All this software is editable through coding to make it customized for your website. One of the negatives of WordPress is the belief that all web pages are created from a pre-defined template but in reality, you can create a custom web page different from all other pages on your website by using a Code Snippets plugin or a FTP client.
