WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool based on PHP and MySQL. Its features include a plugin architecture and a template system.
Below we have several posts written about WordPress. One of our common topics in the past has been Magento and WordPress integration. At Union Square Design, we integrate both Magento and WordPress systems for our blogs, so we have extensive familiarity with both systems.
The Magento WordPress Integration Plugin allows you to bring out any of the default Magento blocks in your WordPress theme, bring out any Magento blocks that you have created yourself, and bring out any static blocks that you have made in your Magento admin area. It also shows products from any category using the widget add-on.
With WordPress, you can create any type of website you want: a personal blog or website, a photoblog, a business website, a professional portfolio, a government website, a magazine or news website, an online community, even a network of websites.
You can make your website beautiful with themes, and extend it with plugins. You can even build your very own application. Simplicity makes it possible for you to get online and get publishing, quickly. Gone are the days where you have to submit content and wait for it to be reviewed by editors. WordPress allows you be your own editor.
Creating new content on WordPress couldn’t be easier—in fact, it’s one of the hallmarks of the application and once that content has been created, integration with Magento allows users to port that content directly onto their e-commerce site or social media outlet.
With all of this information that you’ve gained about WordPress, we hope that you enjoy reading our WordPress blog, and we hope to update you with more info on what’s going on in the WordPress world as it comes.
