Can you not update your own website? (Issue #2 of 8)
February 3, 2012 by Tim Priebe
If your website was not made in the last couple years, chances are good that you need special software to update your website. And if you have more than one person updating your site, you have to pay for a copy of the software for each of them. And you may all still need knowledge of HTML and other web programming languages.
Get a new look and edit your site…whenever you want
T&S decided a long time ago to do things differently. Our clients in Edmond, Oklahoma City, and around the world can go to any computer, log into their own website, and update their own website. We use a content management system (CMS) called WordPress, which allows our clients to…
- Edit the text on pages
- Upload new pictures and remove existing ones
- Delete pages when needed
- Add new pages, and insert those into their menu
We install the WordPress software for you, along with a few plugins we've found and developed that make WordPress even easier to use.
Keep the same look and gain editing capabilities
You may be saying to yourself, "That's great, but I don't need a whole new website. I'm actually pretty happy with how my site looks, I just need to be able to edit it."
Great news, we can still help! We can actually take your current site and convert it to use WordPress. Typically there are very minor tweaks here and there so your site is compatible WordPress. But once we're done, you have basically the same site (with just a bit more consistency throughout), and you can log in and edit the site on your own.
If you need to be able to edit your site on your own, contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling us at 405-285-0348. If you're in the Oklahoma City metro area, we'd love to meet with you in person to discuss your options. And if you're elsewhere, we'd be just as happy to set up a phone meeting.
