The open-source platform WordPress has transformed over time from a basic blogging tool to a comprehensive Content Management System (CMS). Today, as the world’s leading CMS it’s responsible for powering a vast number of websites. Renowned UK brands and establishments such as BBC America, The Rolling Stones, and the University of Cambridge rely on WordPress for their online presence.

In 2023, we revamped Building Radar’s WordPress site, enhancing their references section and overall website effectiveness. Besides redesigning for business focus, we boosted site speed, improving Google PageSpeed Insights score and user engagement metrics.
Cansmith, a marketing agency, approached us in 2022 to develop a website for a new business venture, Nena Apartments – a stylish apartment rental service targeting a younger audience. Their requirement was a visually appealing, multilingual site website that mirrored the modern and unique interior design of the apartments. The design for the project was delivered by Cansmith, while our focus was on implementation. An additional challenge lay in a very tight budget and timeline, since the site was for a startup that was waiting for completion of the website before they could launch their business.

Is WordPress the right choice for you?
Choosing the right CMS for your project is the first big decision you’ll face. We’ve been working with WordPress for 15 years and have seen what it’s capable of many times, however with every technology it’s important to start with a balanced view of its strengths and weaknesses.
WordPress has a great deal of features that set it apart from its competitors:
WordPress is known for its SEO-friendly setup, including core features for permalinks, tagging and categorising. Many SEO plugins can also be added to help fine-tune your site’s search engine performance.
Flex User Management
WordPress offers a flexible user management system, with built-in roles and capabilities that can be further tailored through plugins. This makes WordPress a strong choice for sites that require sophisticated access levels and permissions for users and contributors.
As the world’s most popular CMS, WordPress boasts unrivalled community support. Its user base is continually contributing to its growth and improvement, creating new themes, plugins, and resources. It’s also easy to find support and solutions from forums, blogs, and online tutorials.
There are also good reasons to consider an alternative CMS:
While WordPress is user-friendly, the admin area can become confusing and cluttered without proper planning, management, and structured implementation – especially when a large number of plugins and customisations are involved. This can lead to difficulties in managing content, tracking changes, and maintaining the website.
Given its popularity, and the sheer number of websites built with WordPress, it is a target of cyber attacks and vulnerabilities have occasionally been found in outdated core software, plugins, and themes. It’s essential to keep WordPress installations, themes, and plugins up-to-date and follow security best practices.
Dependence on Plugins
Often, to achieve desired functionalities, WordPress relies heavily on plugins. This dependence can lead to issues with compatibility, website speed, and security. Furthermore, quality and support can vary among plugins, especially those that are not regularly updated or are poorly coded.
We’re here to provide our clients an unbiased, informed opinion to help them choose the best software for their digital project.

Common questions to us as
a WordPress agency
While WordPress started as a blogging platform, it has grown into a flexible content management system (CMS) that supports various types of websites, including e-commerce stores, informational websites, and more. Its adaptability is rooted in its comprehensive feature set and vast plugin ecosystem.
The WordPress Plugin Directory is a repository of over 58,000 plugins that can enhance the functionality of a WordPress site. These plugins offer everything from SEO tools and social media integration to sophisticated content management systems, affording substantial customisation options to WordPress users.
WordPress takes security seriously and has a dedicated team of developers who constantly work on patches and updates. However, as with any CMS, security also depends on how it’s configured and maintained, like keeping WordPress and its plugins updated and adhering to best security practices.
Yes! WordPress is an excellent choice for larger projects. Its robust features and scalability make it ideal for complex websites that see high traffic volumes. Many large-scale organisations and businesses, including top-tier media outlets, use WordPress for their websites.
The cost of a WordPress website can vary significantly based on the complexity of the project, the design and functionality required, and of course, the strategy and expertise of the development team. While WordPress itself is free, associated costs can include hosting, domain, plugins, custom development, and maintenance.
Though WordPress might initially seem more complex compared to some other CMS platforms, it provides a powerful and adaptable system once you get the hang of it. Its admin area is user-friendly and intuitive, and the WordPress community provides an extensive array of online resources and support for new users. Managing a WordPress website quickly becomes straightforward and efficient.
