What is a theme?

A theme is the layout and colors of the website. Purchasing a theme is the most cost effective way to have a visually appealing website. While there are many free WordPress themes, I recommend using StudioPress themes.

What is customer provided content?

Customer provided content refers to the paragraphs of text and images you would like displayed on each web page. The text for the initial website can be provided using any word processing software such as Microsoft Word.

What is the difference between a blog post and a webpage?

Web pages are permanent pages which you would like displayed on your website all the time. Blog posts are dated web pages that are displayed for a period of time and then get replaced by newer blog posts.

What are categories?

Categories allow you to organize your content to allow visitors to your website to easily find your content. For example, you could have a category for “Recent News” that shows only the blog posts that are assigned to that category.
