WordPress CMS & Blog System
WordPress is the world's most popular and widely used CMS.
The terms "blog system" and "blog engine" in connection with WordPress are due to the historical development of the system. The goal and motivation of the developer community around the open source flagship project WordPress was once to programme the "perfect blog system". Apart from definitional difficulties surrounding the word "perfect", the supposedly ambitious goal was, according to general opinion, achieved within a very short period of time, especially in the open source sector.
This fact was not taken as an opportunity to rest on one's laurels, and work began on expanding the system into a fully-fledged CMS. As a result, numerous websites of small and large companies are now based on WordPress, a modern CMS originally designed as a blog system. The WordPress community continues to grow, with the number of worldwide installations, developers and community members increasing daily.
WordPress has a large, dedicated community of users and developers worldwide. Accordingly, there are countless plugins, widgets and modules, most of which are available free of charge, so that a web application based on the WordPress CMS can be retrofitted with suitable functionality for really every conceivable scenario.
The best CMS in terms of usability and search engine friendliness
Users particularly appreciate the extremely clear and user-friendly administration interface of WordPress - no other CMS is as user-friendly, quick to learn and intuitively understandable. Another plus for WordPress as a CMS is the system's search engine friendliness. Search engines like Google love WordPress.
Anyone who operates a website with WordPress is in an excellent position to achieve good ranking positions for the most important keywords within a very short time. Some SEO experts attribute this effect to a kind of blanket "face control" on the part of search engine operators, according to the motto "WordPress = quality until proven otherwise". In fact, however, the WordPress CMS is programmed in such a way that search engine friendliness and basic OnPage optimisation are virtually enforced. In principle, users cannot do much wrong here.
WordPress has a well-designed and excellently documented Application Programming Interface (API) that enables developers to program optimally integrated widgets and extensions for WordPress.

WordPress Theme Development from Berlin
For the better orientation of our clients, in the following section we place our role in the context of a typical web development project: When a new CMS-based web project is to be created, in most cases the following development process is followed:
1) Development of a requirements specification or catalogue of requirements. First of all, the requirements regarding the goal and functionality of the web project must be specified, taking into account the preferences of the target group to be addressed as well as the company's own marketing and sales strategy. These considerations form the basis for a suitable screen design, on the basis of which the CMS template programming takes place.
2) Development or purchase of a suitable screen design based on the existing CI / CD manual. Screen designs are images of a website created by graphic and media designers that specify layout (including instructions on dimensions, alignment and text flow) as well as visual elements and formatting.
3) Implementation of the screen design as a template (HTML5 / CSS3 source code) The purpose of these templates (= website templates) is to commission them once from an agency and thus specify all the essential design elements and the layout of a website. Once these things have been defined, internal editors without programming knowledge or design talent can manage the contents of the website without having to think about design or programming. At this point, it does not matter which CMS is ultimately used for template programming.
4) Adaptation for a specific CMS. Once the HTML5 / CSS3 - template is completed, the template can be adapted and optimised for use with a specific content management system via the programming and integration of CMS-specific source code.
