    A Bit about WordPress

    WordPress is an open-source, free content management system created in PHP and synchronised with a MySQL or MariaDB database. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system enabling easy design solutions and the ability to add more complex functionality.

    According to the official WordPress website “WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL and licensed under the GPL. It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is modern software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product. We hope that by focusing on user experience and web standards we can create a tool different from anything else out there.”

    WordPress is now the most popular globally used open source Content Management System (CMS), used by approximately 75 million websites. WordPress is free to install with thousands of plugins available which reduces development costs and deployment time for ever more complex functionality. Whilst WordPress itself is free to deploy, the plugins vary in price. Many WordPress Plugins are free but most of the better, more reliable plugins incur a charge, mostly as one-off costs but some are provided on a subscription basis. These costs are significantly lower than the development costs would be to create the functionality from scratch and a lucrative marketplace exists for the development and sale of ever-more sophisticated plugins.


    WordPress Website Design

    At Piranha Digital we design and build great WordPress websites for our clients. Yes, there are WordPress themes in the marketplace, but nothing will match your requirements more than a bespoke designed and built WordPress website.  

    At Piranha Digital, we have a dedicated team of WordPress interface designers who work alongside the WordPress developers, designing and creating WordPress websites that are carefully crafted to appeal to the target audience and drive conversions through the website. Whether this is on-line sales (utilising WooCommerce), product enquiries or the start of a long term business relationship through successful submissions of enquiry forms, inbound phone calls or engaging with live chat, WordPress has a solution for you. We have extensive experience of designing WordPress sites for almost every market sector including industrial, manufacturing, commercial, public sector, training, food, retail and so on.

    Our design process always starts with an initial client briefing meeting.  In this initial meeting, we explore the objectives, the brand, corporate tone, colour schemes, product ranges and a review of direct online competitors. From this initial briefing, our creative team develops visuals and styles for all sections of your website, focussing on usability, the customer experience and brand integrity. Working closely with the individuals creating the content, the designers arrive at the final structure and designs ready for the WordPress developers to turn the approved visuals into a live, working WordPress website.

    “We have very much enjoyed the work our company (Inochem UK) has done with Piranha so far. Our new website was carefully thought out and after our initial consultation, plans were drawn up which were exactly as we had imagined (if not a little better). The end product is fantastic, thank you to the whole team!!”

    WordPress - Our Conclusion At Piranha Digital

    There are many opensource /CMS platforms to choose from in the world, but when it comes to flexibility, ease of build, reliability and cost, WordPress ticks all the right boxes. It is licence free and supported by a marketplace of plugins and extensions to enhance functionality and performance

    The fact that it is so widely used is another great benefit because the wider website development community is developing and releasing independent tools and features that can be incorporated into the WordPress core at relatively low cost. If you want a website at a fraction of the cost of a bespoke build but with most of the features of sites costing far more, then WordPress is the platform we would recommend.
