Custom WordPress Design
WordPress is an open source Content Management System (CMS) that is the world's most widely used blog publishing application. Matt Mullenweg first released WordPress in 2003. This free, open source platform is now largely supported by its community, including WP testers, a group of volunteers who test each release. Word Press' features and ease of use has pushed it ahead of competing CMS platforms such as Joomla and Drupal and other blogging platforms.
A Superior CMS
WordPress is much more than just for blogs. You can develop an entire site off WordPress, or extrapolate its blog components, to customize and utilize its features into your own website. It can even be used for e–commerce sites. Ascent provides custom WordPress design services.
Word Press has a powerful combination of features. WordPress is powered by PHP and MySQL, which combines the power of server side programming with a database to store and retrieve information that is updated in real time. It allows for users to add comments, with a built–in editorial approval process and provides a host of different settings and plug–ins. As of February 2011, WordPress has been downloaded more than 32.5 million times according to WordPress.org.
Hundreds of Themes
WordPress offers thousands of free theme templates to download ranging from art to business to books, to cities, to computers, to automotive, to fashion, to entertainment to travel, among many others. Independent developers typically publish these themes and they can de downloaded and used for free, although voluntary donations are encouraged.
Some free WordPress themes require specific footer tags that will only allow the features to work if the sponsors for the theme are maintained in the footers. There are also premium WordPress themes, which have no sponsors and typically cost less than $100 but prices can vary.
