In this article, some of my friends say, “Why are you using WordPress?” we will look for answers. First we will compare WordPress with many other content management systems and options such as typing in their own system. Basically, we will have information about WordPress and other content systems at the end of the article, including a friend who knows nothing.
Let’s start with the comparison I can include briefly my own self-experiences.
When I first met with internet programming and design, I prepared a lot of scripts and I had the opportunity to experiment. I was able to produce successful projects. But I felt a little stunned at the time factor and ease of use that was important. I thought why I was trying to write my own system while there were already systems. After all, most of these systems are free and easy to use. A WordPress, Joomla, blogger, wix even do not make it easy.
It takes a really long time to deal with the code, the algorithm, the security and the various elements. It would be unreasonable to spend so much time on the website that I would only create identity on the internet and inform the portfolio. I thought it would be more logical to distinguish the remaining time after ozkantas.com, which I created quickly, into the project in my mind. That’s why I went into a search for a system that I could find ready to play on. I also recommend to you; first to decide what to do and later to continue in your way. Do not waste your time on your personal blog. Focus on your actual projects and the work you do.
Now let’s look at the differences between content management systems. Bu sistemler çok fazla olduğu için, şimdilik en popüler olanlardan birkaçını karşılaştıracağım. These are WordPress, Joomla, blogger, wix and some mini scripts that circulate on the internet.
First of all, you can find a lot of ready-made systems by making a search for “personal blog script” on internet search engines. Or you can find simple personal scripts that people create on some pages of your forums. If you are not experienced in programming and design, this will not work for you. Assuming that your experience is what you are talking about, demo scripts can leave you untouched, newly created, add-ons and modules are vicious, you can not do the controls and security systems exactly. If you regret to go through a different script, you could lose your data, be badly affected by the search engines, and give your users losses. So I advise you not to keep these scripts on your servers as well. You can use these types of systems only when you are a student or when you are at a new learning stage. On the other hand, it is also beneficial to go to open source content management systems in all cases.
In the second stage, I will talk about the Blogger app that the google search engine bought in 2003. In this system you can basically usethedomainname.blogspot.com for free, you can create your personal blog.
In the Blogger system, the software does not fully interoperate with the code and you can not get it in your servers. You can choose your theme from Blogger’s own options and interfere with HTML code only. With attachments it is possible to bring your site into a lot of situations. If the plugin you are looking for is not available, you in google may need to do some research and write it yourself. I suggest this system for simple users like work places that only keep logs, fixed certain shares, only a few pages introductory pages.
I’m taking a break here because I think the writing is too long. You can give it a short coffee break so you will not get bored, in the next article I will talk about the differences between WordPress, Joomla and Wix, which are the most popular right now, and which will work best for you.
