WordPress CMS & Blog System
WordPress is the world's most popular and widely used CMS.
The terms “blog system” and “blog engine” in connection with WordPress stem from the historical development of the system. The initial objective of the WordPress developer community was to program the “perfect blog system.” According to general belief, apart from definitional difficulties around the word “perfect,” the seemingly ambitious goal was achieved in a remarkably short time, especially for an Open Source project.
However, we did not rest on our laurels. We expanded the system to a full-fledged CMS. Today, numerous websites of small and large companies are based on WordPress, a modern CMS originally conceived as a blog system. The WordPress community continues to grow, the number of worldwide installations, developers and community members grows daily.
WordPress has a large, dedicated community of users and developers worldwide. Accordingly, there are countless, mostly free plugins, widgets and modules available, so that a web application based on the WordPress CMS can be retrofitted with suitable functionality that meets every conceivable scenario.
The best CMS in terms of usability and search engine friendliness
Users particularly appreciate the clean and user-friendly administration interface of WordPress—no other CMS is so user-friendly, easy to learn and intuitive. A further plus for WordPress as CMS is the search engine friendliness of the system. Search engines like Google love WordPress.
Whoever runs a website with WordPress has an excellent starting position to achieve a good keyword ranking in a short time. Some SEO experts attribute this effect to search engine operators seemingly approving of WordPress websites at face value, according to the motto “WordPress equals quality unless proven otherwise.” In fact, the WordPress CMS practically enforces search engine friendliness and basic OnPage optimization by design. In principle, there is not much you can do wrong.
WordPress has a well thought-out and well-documented Application Programming Interface (API) that allows developers to build well-integrated widgets and extensions for WordPress.

WordPress Theme Development from Berlin
In the following section, to give you a better idea of how we work, we describe our role in the context of a typical web development project. For most CMS-based projects, the development process looks as follows:
1) Development of acceptance criteria or specs. First, we capture the requirements in terms of objectives and functionality, accounting for end-user needs and the client’s Marketing and Sales strategy. That serves as the basis for the design upon which we develop the CMS template.
2) Development or purchase of a suitable screen design based on the existing CI / CD manual. Screen designs are images of a website that graphic designers and media designers design. They specify layout—including instructions on dimensions, alignment, and text flow—as well as visual elements and formatting.
3) Implementation of the screen design as a template (HTML5 / CSS3 source code) The purpose of these templates is to specify all essential design elements and the layout of a website. Once these things have been defined, internal editors without programming knowledge or creative talent can manage the contents of the website without having to worry about design or programming. At this point, it does not matter which CMS is used to program the template.
4) Adjustment for a specific CMS. Once the HTML5 / CSS3 template is complete, we can customize and optimize the template for use with a specific content management system by programming and integrating CMS-specific source code.
