How does WordPress work?
“Plugins” are like “Apps” on your smart device.
They are available, just like on Google Playstore and Apple AppStore from the WordPress Plugins Market and carry out various tasks, such as a Contact Form, SEO software, image galleries etc.
This makes developing a website a lot quicker as each element does not have to be coded from scratch, saving time and cost.
Plugins generally are available as a free version with the option to purchase a feature rich “premium” version if required.
Customising Plugins: There are times when a suitable plugin is either not available or doesn’t fit the exact task, we therefore code our own.
“Themes” provides the layout and general look of the site. We customise the theme to reflect your brand identity, mission and purpose.
