How to Build a Website Easy and Fast

Few years ago when the company that I worked for need to develop a website, we had to spent over 30K by using an external agency.   The whole process was almost like a black box.  On our company side, we needed to have a webmaster to communicate with the web design company and with very little iterations, they came up with a design and needed us to make a decision very quickly.  Once the website was built, we knew very little about the performance of the website as it seems the website update can be done by people with a lot of training and the update process seems to be very difficult and time consuming.  Does that sounds familiar?

The Thesis Theme from Chris Pearson and DIYthemesNow the situation and technology changed, by using Wordpress, a blog engine, you can build up a website very quickly.  As Wordpress is an open source software that has a lot of developers working on it.  There are thousands of plugins and themes that are free.  But some of the themes are really difficult to customize and lack of documentation and you have no idea in terms of whether their code is clean or not.  Meanwhile, some may not work with future updates.   So for serious business these are all undesirable effects.   The other thing is that some business do not want to have their site with a footer that is link to third parties. So I start to search for a theme that can do without putting the link at footer.  

After a lot of searching, I found Thesis, and I am very impressed at their clean code framework that are SEO optimized with a lot of flexibility to customize your website.  Even better is that they do have a support community just in case you need any extra support.

    I use Thesis as an example of a WordPress theme that have a lot of desirable features and will address most of the problems that I stated in the post. Since the post published I have found other themes that are very good. Hope that answer your questions, if not please let me know.

  • No matter what others say, I think it is still interesting and useful maybe necessary to improve some minor things

  • CM

    It is important to use template that are SEO optimized as well as very flexible to customize otherwise you may be spending a lot of time to customize the template but the result is that the site is not SEO optimized, hence may not attract enough traffic.

  • It is nice to definitely locate a blog where the blogger is intelligent. Thanks for creating your blog.
