How do you want to grow your business today?        

Why choose WordPress?

The single biggest advantage is not technical but rather that is is a well known platform.  So it may be familiar to many people in your organization from their personal experience. Consequently your employees may already know how to edit WordPress. As a result, your costs to maintain your site may be less.

In the last four years, WordPress has developed many widgets that reduce the amount of technical work to create popular web features e.g. calendars. Initially WordPress did not allow you to arrange content except in limited ways. The traditional WordPress theme was arranged for blog posts on the left side of the page, a tag cloud on the right and a menu at the top. To change this, an engineer needed to change the code in the theme.

WordPress has made a major step forward with the divi theme. This theme puts the placement of content in an administrator’s hands without need for an engineer.  Landau Design specializes in configuring this template and can customize the content arrangement and appearance for you.

The two remaining drawbacks in considering WordPress are security risks and the availability of the widgets you need. We have repaired several WP sites recently and the malware attacks are becoming more time consuming and costly to repair. In addition, it may be more difficult to tie to certain other website technologies needed. One example is e-commerce widgets
