Cardinal Acres Web Development utilizes the powerful open-source WordPress internet publishing platform to create dynamic websites for small businesses and non-profit organizations. WordPress was first released in 2003 and now is used by nearly 70 million websites. Many of those websites belong to Fortune 500 and other prominent companies such as: GM, UPS, SONY, The New York Times, CNN, Forbes, Reuters, IZOD, TechCrunch, Sony Music, The Walt Disney Company, Mercedes Benz and many more. It is used by these companies, not because it is free, but because it is a powerful yet easy-to-use blogging and content management system.

WordPress

The default installation of WordPress is already a powerful way to give your business a presence on the web. It doesn’t end there, though. Additional functionality can be easily added to WordPress through the use of “plugins“. Currently, there are over 55,000 free plugins plus thousands of additional commercial plugins that can add anything from a simple photo gallery to  full-blown e-commerce functionality to your website. Not only is the functionality of WordPress extensible, but so is the appearance via “themes“. Since WordPress stores your website content in a database, it only takes a simple click to activate a new theme and give your website a completely new look. Over 3,000 free themes are hosted on the wordpress.org website with many thousands more commercial themes available.

Additional Functionality

Of course many organizations need functionality beyond a simple website. Cardinal Acres Web Development has implemented websites with sophisticated additional functionality using the following plugins:

Cardinal Acres Web Development will work with you in selecting and configuring plugins and a theme that will create a website that fulfills your requirements. We can install your WordPress-based website to your current web hosting provider (as long as they meet the minimum requirements for WordPress). If you don’t currently have a web hosting provider or would like a new one, we can recommend some that have worked well for us in the past.

Take a look at the showcase of our past work for examples of what can be achieved with WordPress. We can also provide ongoing support and maintenance for your WordPress installation.
