“Do any of my FB friends know how to use WordPress to create a static website or as a CMS tool?”
Have YOU ever asked these questions? Here’s my concise answer:
WordPress gives us the choice, to set the data as a Page or Post.
STATIC PAGES have permanent urls or web addresses. Punk Sells Out Client Questionnaire always displays this PAGE. Great info: essential topics, features and functionality in any blog/site, to determine scope, time and budget.
DYNAMIC POSTS change as we blog or post more info; a typical blog POST.
- Main screen with blog listings change due to dates or content, shoved down as we post more.
- Typically, at end of month, existing posts are listed in the archive. They won’t show up on the main screen.
- They WILL display under the menus, search or category listing (depending up settings).
CMS (Content Management System):
- Categories and sub-categories organize the data. That’s how content is managed
- MANAGED content = better Google results AND engages (KEEPS) readers! Grows your audience!
- Use of keywords
- Deep linking within the pages/posts
- Outbound linking to reliable sources
Left side of screen are BLOG ENTRIES or DYNAMIC POSTS.
POST navigational links: top of the screen. Arranged by CATEGORY.
Note some links have double arrows>> That indicates SUB-CATEGORIES.
STATIC PAGES: the larger tabs under the heading. They could be store location/hours/directions if this were a brick-and-mortar store.
FAQs could be STATIC PAGES or DYNAMIC POSTS.
CMS: NOTE every POST (on current pages) displays a few, descriptive words under the title. I assigned Categories (at least one, could be more) to EVERY POST. Click on a Category box to see a list of other posts in the same Category.
The administrator/designer/programmer sets how many categories/sub-categories to display. Depending upon how the layout or theme is set up, it can be a quick change, or time spent delving into theme coding.
I ask YOU:
–Do you have a WordPress blog/site?
