Full fledged WordPress sites are a great alternative to traditional html sites. WordPress allows you to make design changes directly within an admin panel without needing an html editor or an ftp agent to upload your html. It is also very handy as you only have to make your design changes globally as opposed to a static html site that would need to be changed on every single page.
WordPress however can be a challenge to learn if you aren’t familiar with php, the programming language for the software. There are instances where it is useful to know where to locate code especially if you work with WordPress templates.
If you are looking to use a Content Management Software (CMS), WordPress is hard to beat!

Custom WordPress Design – St. John’s Episcopal Church
We recently had the pleasure of working with St. John’s Episcopal Church in Ithaca, NY.
to help them create a Custom WordPress Design that enlists event and administrative calendars along with showcasing their church’s artistic interior.
About St. John’s Church -
The essence of St. John’s is the people who make up the congregation. It reminds me of a Jackson Pollock painting. At first glance, it draws you in with a variety of colors and shapes all woven together in a complex pattern, but then it begins to seem complicated and chaotic—there is a lot going on at once and things are constantly shifting, as they do in this community. It is only when one takes a deep breath, looks closer, and begins to distinguish all of the colors, lines, and shapes that the whole makes sense. Nothing is linear, nothing is perfect, and you see something new every time you take another look. There is evidence of our success in programs and ministries that work well just as there is ample evidence of our imperfections and failures. What gives me hope for the future is that the colors, lines, and shapes continually shift and intersect, but they always work together to reveal new ideas and new opportunities. A lot of people dismiss Pollock’s paintings as too complicated to take a second look, but the beauty of his work is that it demands prolonged contemplation and new ways of thinking. This congregation is a lot like that for me—sometimes I feel overwhelmed by all of the tasks that must be completed, the programs and ministries that need to be improved, and the people and places that we are called to serve, but I feel immense satisfaction when we find new ways to work together to accomplish some of these goals, even if it takes a while.
