A vast majority of us who stay connected over the web all day long cannot help but observe the evolution of certain phenomena. One of them is obviously the evolution of WordPress as the most feature-rich platform for websites.
With millions of business, professional and creative sites running on WordPress, you just cannot keep your eyes away from the platform. But what is even more interesting about WordPress web development services these days is the huge transformation it went through in recent years.
What’s Really There To Call It Transformation?
While on a global scale, 27% of all websites use WordPress as their platform, the value proposition must continue to be unique for all these users. The typical recognition of WordPress as a blogging platform has long been gone and now even a huge number of professional websites ranging from B2B niches to big brand e-commerce sites are running on WordPress.
So, it is no longer just a platform to write blogs but it is equally a platform for interactive e-commerce interfaces, professional services and all kinds of niches. This transformation from a blogging platform to a fully equipped web engine with all advanced tools and features made WordPress literally an invincible option for businesses.
What Made This Transformation Possible?
To answer this question, we need to go back a few years and see how WordPress used to be deployed and what are the things that are continually added to it making the platform a robust one.
The basic architecture of WordPress was not much different when starting as a blogging platform. The easy to use dashboard and customization options with plugins and themes were pretty much the same. WordPress was essentially developed to accommodate wide-ranging customization option in look, feel and feature set. Thanks to this versatility only, WordPress is used in near about one-third of the top 500 websites with the highest volume of traffic.
While versatility, flexibility, and scalability continued to remain the strength of WordPress, the WordPress developers all over the world continued adding value to the platform with increasing number of sophisticated plugins and tools. Today there are thousands of highly sophisticated themes and plugins gave WordPress every type of feature and design elements for any niche website.
The explosive volume of plugins and themes made WordPress what it is now, a web platform suited for all kinds of niche web requirements.
Is There Anything That WordPress Is Incapable Of?
Can you think of any web requirement that WordPress cannot comply with? It can run on all devices without compromising the design and web experience. It can be used for superb e-commerce experience. It can be used to facilitate a transaction with optimum security.
It can accommodate all types of posts including very rich media without sacrificing the speed and overall user experience. With thousands of WordPress themes, you can avail optimum customisation options for the look and feel of your website. It can deliver every kind of feature you can ever think about modern web platforms.
Some Great Value Additions To WordPress
As a platform WordPress continued to enjoy more value created every single day or night. For example, the analytics plugin from Google called Google Analytics is widely popular and is used in vast majority of top 50 WordPress websites.
Many top-notch WordPress themes continued to make the platform a better place when it comes to design. Sophisticated and attention-grabbing themes like WPZOOM is continuing to add more fluidity and beauty to the platform.
The best thing about WordPress how it allows customization and layers within most of the plugins and themes. The huge scope of customisation with plugins and themes can be taken further by customising different elements, UI, and functions within these themes and plugins.
