What is WordPress?

WordPress is an Open Source content management system that started as a simple blogging tool. Open Source means it is free to all and anyone can help improve it. WordPress has flourished into much more than a blogging tool with over 37,000 plugins (plugins are code that adds functionality to a WordPress site) and thousands of themes and templates(themes/templates control the appearance of a WordPress site). WordPress is written in a programming language called PHP, and uses a MySQL database to drive the site. PC Dudes has been writing PHP and MySQL to make sites for over ten years, the same core language used to write WordPress plugins, widgets, and templates. If you need a custom WordPress template, custom WordPress widget, or any programming on a WordPress site, let PC Dudes make your WordPress design in Mankato.

PC Dudes custom WordPress themes

When we build a custom template or custom theme, we follow the WordPress Codex (suggested standards). We start with a skeletal theme provided by WordPress for customization. These skeletal themes are great resources for building a site with all the bugs already worked out with great support and lots of documentation. We have customized many sites and are very familiar with the code. A child theme is used so none of our changes are lost when WordPress updates code.

Is WordPress right for your web site?

If you have any questions about WordPress feel free ask. Here are some things to consider:
