Does A Wordpress Website Require A Programmer Or Designer Or Both? You May Not Need Either

Every couple of weeks, we receive an order for assistance in setting up a Wordpress based website. One of the questions we are always asked is whether the website will require the expertise of a designer or a programmer or both to manage and maintain it on a weekly or monthly basis. Anxious webmasters want to know which services they will be locked into or dependent upon when making a big decision of regularly committing a sum of money to keep their website or blog up and running.

Do It Yourself

Wordpress is such an easy platform, that you should be able to get it up and running yourself. You should have the skill set of a person who can send an email and edit documents in Microsoft Word. Beyond that, you will need a bit of intelligence and knowledge of English to read the instructions and understand the menu headings. That's about it to start off your website and do the basic things to keep it up and running.

Installation of Wordpress is done in a jiffy with a one-click option offered by most hosting providers through Softaculous and Installatron Auto-Installer software. You can just login to your control panel, go to Softaculous and select Wordpress. The next page will allow you to enter some simple installation information like installation directory and username / password of the default user. You no longer have to upload or download any files or use FTP to make changes.

When you may need a Designer

Wordpress has thousands of free and paid themes (also known as design templates) which you can incorporate in your website to suit your business or topic. If none of the available themes catch your fancy, you may want to rope in a designer to get you a customized theme to suit your branding and image. If you like a readily-available theme, but want tweak the design a little, you can also get a designer to visualize and modify the looks of the theme. The designer will give you a PSD file, with sliced images (separate image files), which represent the different parts or elements of your website. Some online services charge a small fee to convert your PSD file into a readily installable Wordpress Theme.

Usually Designers who will design the animations for the website, will also have basic programming knowledge and code the animations themselves. This way you wont need to hire a programmer.

When you may need a Programmer

A programmer can add value to the Wordpress website, by coding specific actions and animations. You may also want to collect data through your website or link up your online billing application for your website users to access. An eCommerce website with Wordpress is also pretty simple and easy to setup.

Most of these tasks are already readily available using Wordpress Plugins. Plugins are ready made bits or software which can be easily incorporated in your Wordpress installation, so that you don't need to reinvent the wheel. These plugins may be free or paid and can do the exact tasks that you may be want to hire a programmer for. Some examples of Plugins include An automatic contact form generator, statistics counter, live stock ticker and many more.

A start-up or small business can definitely manage their own Wordpress website without the help of a designer or a programmer to begin with. There are numerous tutorials online with detailed step-wise instructions.
