Many years ago I started making WordPress sites for clients, and during that time I've done pretty much everything you can with the platform.
During this time WordPress has evolved from a blogging platform, to the world's biggest content management system.
Wordpress can be good, and it's the worlds most used platform for a reason! So while I've become familiar with its limitations, I've grown to love the system.
If WordPress is the right choice for my clients, I will heartily recommend it. But despite how far the platform has been extended it is not always the right answer - particularly if you want to manage thousands of users.
WordPress development can be roughly grouped into three categories:
I've put together many WordPress sites in each of these three categories. Based on this experience, I've learnt that to deliver a result that meets my exacting professional standards a custom theme is the best option.
So if you want a professional wordpress site for your business, then I'm your man.
WordPress plugins allows you to extend the basic functionality of WordPress to a whole range of different applications. There are literally thousands available and on the surface, what you can achieve can be amazing.
But a word of warning:
For these reasons, I only use a handful of trusted plugins I've used for years, and know won't cause conflicts. If you're trying to add functionality beyond that offered by these plugins, then I think you're trying to push a square peg in a round hole and WordPress is not the right answer.
