WordPress is an amazing CMS for any website

Things move really fast online. The WordPress platform now powers almost a third of websites on the internet! This number continues to grow, and for good reason; It’s an extremely extensible, open-source Content Management System, with an excellent web interface, a large community and freely available resources online.

Using WordPress as your CMS is really powerful, but it doesn’t mean you’re confined to using standard off-the-shelf, or even custom, WordPress themes. Taking advantage of the WordPress REST API, or the wp-graphql plugin project, your webpage can be built with modern client-side Javascript approach, providing super fast page load speeds and app-like behaviour, using React.js and tools like Gatsby.js to achieve this.

Get in touch and let’s communicate about how I can help you achieve your goals!
