WordPress FAQs

What is WordPress?2020-11-26T15:22:30+00:00

WordPress is online web software you can use to create a beautiful website or blog.

Once loaded onto into your web space (by Teckna or via your control panel), you can log into the system and add pages and content in a similar way to using programs like MS-Word. You can choose from 1,000s of free designs that you can search on from with the WordPress control panel or we can design you a bespoke theme.

When you sign up to our web hosting service we will install WordPress by defult. WordPress will all be set up and ready to go. You will get login details in your welcome email.

It is known as a content management system or CMS. This means you can maintain your website without any specialist knowledge. See below for a more extensive explanation of a CMS.

A content management system (CMS) is a software system that provides website authoring, collaboration, and administration tools designed to allow users with little knowledge of web programming or HTML to create and manage website content with relative ease. A robust CMS provides the foundation for collaboration, offering users the ability to manage documents and output for multiple author editing and participation.

What is a WordPress theme?2020-11-26T15:19:47+00:00

A Theme can also be known as a “skin” or in its simplest form, the overall design of your website. i.e the colours, the menu design etc

In your WordPress dashboard you can search and download over 1,000 different themes for free or you can ask us to design your own bespoke theme based on your brand / ideas. See our web design pages for more information.

If you want to see some of the free themes, look at WordPress Themes

To install a new theme could not be simpler. It is all done inside the WordPress control panel. Search on the theme and then click to install. That’s all! no download files or anything technical. You can also install multiple themes and switch between them at any stage and your content is not affected or lost.

What is a WordPress Plugin?2020-11-26T15:19:43+00:00

A plug-in is a small program, or combination of programs, that sits on top of your WordPress installation and increases the functionality of your website in some way. (Translation: Plug-ins allow your website to have more features and to do more than it could when you first installed it.)

Plugins integrate seamlessly with WordPress so there is no messing with any programming code. That is another great thing about plug-ins. They do not actually affect your original WordPress install. They reside separately and interact with WordPress.

Examples of Plugins are to add a contact form, or create fancy a fancy gallery for you photos. There are over 14,000 plugins available, you can see examples of WordPress Plugins via WordPress Plugins

To install a plugin could not be simpler. It is all done inside the WordPress control panel. Search on the plugin and then click to install. That’s all! No download files or anything technical.

What designs are available?2020-11-26T15:19:39+00:00

How many pages can I have?2020-11-26T15:22:14+00:00

In theory you could have unlimited number of pages.

In practice most of the design themes will have a natural limit as to how many pages and subpages you can fit in your website.
