At the beginning of February I was approached by RAWWW (www.rawww.com) to build a website they had designed for the Commission for Youth Social Enterprise using WordPress for the cms. After spending the last 2 years using ExpressionEngine I thought it would be a nice change to try out a new CMS, and the design is fantastic. Clean, bright and clear (as you can see from the screen shot below).
Within the first week of using WordPress I had managed to learn and implement themes, theme creation, template tags, plug-in’s and the admin area, it’s ridicules how easy it is to customize and manage a website using WordPress. if I had known how easy it was to use I would have started using it from day 1, don’t get me wrong ExpressionEngine is far superior, but for a lot of websites, it’s a bit overkill and it’s not free.
Anyway… the site took roughly 2 weeks to build (which is not bad for my first WordPress website), and pretty much everything is content managed (including the header images). I will defiantly be using WordPress from now on after this expreience. You can see the live website at www.yse.org.uk.
