Have you ever designed a website in Dreamweaver? Sure, we all have. Have you ever been so mad you could put your foot through your monitor? Again, we all have. If you answered yes to the second question and it relates to the first question, then you are just like me. Fortunately, there is a solution that will blow your mind!
Ok, so it’s nothing new, unless you’ve been hiding out in some dark cave for the past eight years. What am I talking about? WordPress of course. Please tell me you’ve heard of it!? I wasn’t convinced at first, but after some time and seeing all of its capabilities, I’m 200% sold. I’d go as far as saying this is the future of web design, but I think I’m a little late as it’s been changing the way web design is done for many years now. I just wish I had more exposure to it in the early days when I was fresh out of college. It is probably one of the most helpful tools I use. In case you are lost as to everything I’m talking about, here is an excerpt I found on Wikipedia:
WordPress is an open source Content Management System (CMS), often used as a blog publishing application, and driven by PHP and MySQL. Matt Mullenweg first released it on May 27, 2003 and as of August 2010, version 3.0 had been downloaded over 12.5 million times. Pretty amazing to say the least.
