Do you know what WordPress Maintenance Packages is? If you’re new to WordPress, you might not have even heard of them, but you can learn about them at your leisure.
For anyone who’s used WordPress, they already know how easy it is to use, and how many plugins are available to you. That’s the thing about WordPress. You can get plugins to do almost anything you need.
I did a video, and article on this topic, because the number of posts that I receive is overwhelming. Let’s face it, who wants to make a list post? This makes me think the number of posts are endless, and also; as I watch them it’s hard to keep up with them all. But if I don’t take care of this problem, I will never be able to build an awesome site that is unique.
It just so happens that I recently had the opportunity to speak with someone about building an awesome WordPress site and he shared with me that he was able to build his site using a maintenance package called WP-Admin. I hadn’t heard of it before, but I thought I would give it a try, since it was free.
The first thing I found out is that WordPress is “freemium” software. Which is a very strange term to describe it. If you’re going to call it free, then what is it I’m paying for? It is considered premium, which means it offers a free amount of features, but you also have to pay for additional functionality as you advance in your website building career.
If you’ve ever used WordPress, you’re familiar with the WordPress Maintenance Packages. I know for myself, I use these three at least three times a week.
The first maintenance package is called “wordpress database”. It’s absolutely essential to have on a site. You’re going to need to create a MySQL database, and of course install the MySQL extension. If you’ve never installed a MySQL plugin before, there are plenty of tutorials online.
Once you’re done with that, you’ll need to install “WP-Admin”. I’ve heard people refer to it as a website management tool, and that is exactly what it is.
Now if you don’t want to use this maintenance package, and just want a site up and running that’s able to run WordPress, then you’ll need to install the “WordPress Optimizer”. It will add some nice little tricks to the theme that is known as back-links. It doesn’t require any knowledge of HTML code, and you’ll be up and running in no time.
The best thing about these three packages is that they aren’t difficult to install, and don’t require you to figure out a great deal of code, or learn how to use an external program to manage your websites. If you have a basic understanding of programming, this will be easy for you to set up.
There are lots of other maintenance packages that you can get too, including WordPress SEO, which will help increase the ranking of your site. With so many great features available, and many providers out there, you’ll find that you can do a lot with WordPress.
