Wordpress and other CMS
« on: 31 October 2014, 08:40 »
Anyone using Wordpress or similar for their photos, there looks to be plenty of free and premium themes e.g. http://colorlib.com/wp/photography-wordpress-themes/

Just wondering if anyone has used a CMS like this and what the pros and cons are?

I'm trying Concrete5 (because it was provided by my host) at the moment, but haven't yet got a pleasing result, so I may switch to something else, Wordpress & a theme seems a sensible option.

Looking at their website, it looks decent enough, so perhaps I haven't got my head around it properly, but I don't have time to play with it.

Lots of people use SmugMug because it allows them to sell photos, but you have to pay for it.

WordPress, I find details,  is very good. Make sure you secure your site with a plugin such as Wordfence or you will be hacked in no time.
Loads of free themes and plugins and also lots of online help.
