It’s nice to get some attention around the blogsphere after playing under the media radar for so long. It’s especially nice to have our site mentioned on WordPress.org. Thanks to Donncha at WordPress for the mention
My motivation to write this post isn’t purely driven by ego. I want to highlight yet again to the yet-to-be converted, that WordPress is a compelling content management system (CMS) and not just a platform for blogs. So, if you don’t use WordPress for your blog, change now. If you use WordPress for your blog but haven’t thought about using it for your corporate Web site, then do it. It doesn’t take long and I’ll gladly allow a member of my team to put you in the right direction.
Not only is it simple and cheap to update and maintain, but your site will be automatically optimised for search engines to pick up your content.
Watch out for Kamrul’s post which will talk about all the plugins we use. He will explain how to implement them in plain English and the advantages of each one. He’ll also discuss the issues we experienced with accessibility and how to overcome them (we’re still making improvements to make the site more accessible).
You may notice that we make small tweaks every day as we strive to make our content as accessible as possible. Please feel free to provide feedback to help us make the site easier to use.
