For many years, I avoided WordPress. Every time I’d try an embark on a WordPress site, I encountered something designed with a completely different mind-set to my own. To me it was entirely counter-intuitive: I just didn’t get it. So I left it alone.
More recently I have been involved in projects where WordPress has been the client’s preferred option, and I have therefore been forced to revisit the platform and reappraise.
So what’s changed in the last couple of years? Well, first of all, the management page seems to be be more logical and although the learning curve is steep, I have not felt as though I was on an alien planet and (unlike Uhuru) wasn’t able to speak their language.
Later, I’ll return here with more on WordPress concepts, posts, pages and themes and how to get your head around building a good looking site…
