WordPress

From e-commerce to a one-pager, WordPress is a solid solution

WordPress has come a long way in the past few years. Originally a platform for blogging, WordPress has expanded its milieu and now a full 26% of the internet is built with WordPress. 40% of content management systems are based on WordPress. Large sites like CNN, EBay and the Wall Street Journal are run with the powerful WordPress content management engine. Now WordPress is often used for editing pages, setting up menus, processing forms, and performing important business functions on websites. We at Watermelon have used WordPress for everything from one-page “Coming Soon” sites to complex e-commerce sites built with WooCommerce (acquired by WordPress itself in 2015), database-intensive sites, and sites that access multiple sources of data from different repositories.

WordPress has the largest repository of plugins of all content management systems, so they reduce development time significantly. That saves you money.

And of course WordPress is a blog for many people as well. It is still (in our opinion) the best blogging tool around.

Watermelon Web Works develops custom WordPress solutions for complex directories, custom e-commerce solutions, and just good-looking and functional websites. Our WordPress maintenance and SEO package has been getting lots of compliments. We’d love an opportunity to serve your business needs.

So they end up settling for what “works” instead of figuring out how to make it better.read more →

September 17, 2019morgan+WordPress0 Comments We recently started a WordPress project with a client that wanted us to switch their site over to the popular Enfold theme. What we estimated to be a relatively simple theme implementation task soon turned into a full on content restructuring, requiring more time and energy than we initially envisioned. Why, you ask? Enter the sometimes-complex world of custom page-builder plugins.read more →
