14 reasons for WordPress – experiences of a web agency

Structure and operation of WordPress

The WordPress CMS not only offers a number of advantages when developing a website, but also for the customer. The WordPress user interface is well structured and it is easy to find your way around even without previous knowledge. After a short briefing, even a layperson is able to edit existing pages and posts or create new ones.

So you can easily maintain your website yourself. Texts and images can be changed or added without any programming knowledge.
The standard version of WordPress already includes its own editor, which makes it very easy to edit the content. When creating websites, we often use other page builders for WordPress, as these usually offer more options and are at least as easy and intuitive to use. These can easily be installed as a plugin in addition to the standard editor. Content can be added easily using drag & drop, for example, or moved within the page.

You can save a newly created page as a draft and edit and publish it later. You can also display a preview of the page while editing. If you ever want to undo a change, that’s no problem either. You can easily restore any previously saved page.

In the WordPress backend, any number of users can be created, who can be granted different rights for the site. For example, you have the option of granting individual employees either full administrator rights or only author or editor rights.

You can also carry out data backups and updates for WordPress yourself. However, here are a few things to keep in mind. More information can be found here.

So if you deal with WordPress a little, you can do a lot yourself after completing the website and don’t have to hire an agency for every change. The ongoing operation and maintenance of your own website is possible almost free of charge.
