WordPress 3.2 : Making Websites Easy

WordPress has become one of the most popular pieces of web-design software on the market today. Designed to be as simple, basic and straightforward as a word processor (like Microsoft Word or WordPerfect), it is easy to use, intuitive to work with, and very inexpensive. The software itself is free, as it is open source and community based, thus requiring the user to do nothing more than hunt down cheap WordPress hosting in order to start their own website. Many companies, including WordPress itself, offer basic hosting for the purpose of making a blog. More advanced servers can offer cheap WordPress hosting for those interested in more dedicated websites and storefronts, but WordPress remains geared towards the casual blogger with an emphasis on text rather than pictures, graphics, JavaScript applications or Flash movies and cartoons.

Because of WordPress’s emphasis on text and flexibility across multiple web browsers, WordPress has become the tool of choice for mobile-based sites. Graphics and animations do not show up well on the small screens found on smart phones, Kindles and iPads, and the lack of a mouse on many of these devices makes scrolling and clicking somewhat cumbersome and slow. WordPress, being open source and thus driven by community demands instead of corporate decisions, has been adapted to work on mobile devices by using HTML5 and dynamic coding protocols that allow the text to be wrapped or enlarged to fit on small screens. This ensures that anyone using an iPhone, Droid or other mobile device will be able to easily read the text and only scroll down, as opposed to having to scroll sideways in order to read the text. With WordPress’s built-in software it is also not necessary in all cases to create separate mobile and non-mobile versions of the website, since the text and images (or lack thereof) will be adjusted accordingly.

The most recent version of WordPress, v. 3.2, was named “Gershwin” after the famous classical composer. True to its name, it is elegant in its simplicity, and delicate in its composition and capability. The emphasis in “Gershwin” was to make WordPress faster, lighter and simpler by removing redundant code and hiding less useful or more advanced features. This ensures that WordPress can run on older or lower market PCs with less difficulty and more speed, making it ideal for students, stay-at-home moms and other persons who compute on a budget. The lack of system resource use also makes it ideal for people who multi-task and may find themselves leaving a blog half-finished so that they can go to a meeting, make appointments, or work on other projects.

One of the most innovative features of WordPress 3.2 is the introduction of “Zen Mode,” which eliminates everything on the screen (even the operating system and programs running in the background) to illustrate a blank page. Simple, empty and inviting, “Zen Mode” does away with the sort of distractions inherent even in today’s word processing programs such as updates, digital assistants, error notifications, live spelling and grammar checking, and so on. The end effect is to turn one’s computer into a digital typewriter that is connected to the internet, thus making WordPress very easy for the technically limited or easily bothered to use. The lack of distractions also improves focus and thus creativity, leading to improved quality and quantity of output.

WordPress 3.2 has achieved much of this improved efficiency and small size by downscaling and eliminating coding essentials and software when dealing with older and no longer used operating systems, such as IE6 or Opera. While this may be a frustration for some users, increased compatibility can be added back in optionally, and its absence will generally not be missed. The elimination of extreme backwards compatibility, common in most high-cost and professional website and blog creation systems, makes WordPress 3.2 one of the smallest and quickest pieces of blog creation software on the market today. The simplicity and directness of the coding also help to make updates quicker on all systems, enhancing the speed at which new posts can be made, making it ideal for bloggers who are interested in exclusive reports or other time-based digital services.

The popularity of WordPress has led to a large market of cheap WordPress hosting options, all of which are directly compatible with WordPress and thus have no need for in-depth or complex update systems in order to keep the HTML flowing. This eliminates a lot of the guesswork, FTP management and other problems inherent in keeping a blog operating. Cheap WordPress hosting is available through various companies affiliated with the WordPress project and community, along with a large number of companies that are taking advantage of the open source nature of WordPress to optimize their systems to work with WordPress. This leads to a great number of options for would-be bloggers, and reinforces WordPress’s usability.
