Combining WordPress and HTML

WordPress is a very popular solution for many websites. I have always used html to create a site, but thought it would be a good idea to explore the possibilities of combing both solutions into one website.

The site at still has all the information as normal, but now there is a link to my WordPress version. I use version 3.4, and found it easier to locate and use a template theme that suited the style I felt would be professional and modern. There was much I needed to learn, but found plenty of support in the Forums and from different Theme suppliers. Highly recommended for new and existing webmasters.

WordPress was easy to instal and set up, then came the biggest surprise of all, the extensive range of "Plugins" which extended the basic installation. Using WordPress, I have pages, and menu as normal, and a Blog. The Blog is set up different from this one, and I found it easy to use. There are benefits for having a separate url for a Blog, but for the majority of users the time and effort are not worth it.

I still create a wide range of sitemaps which benefit the whole site, in addition to those locate within WordPress.

There are many excellent web designers, but I sometimes wonder if it would be a lot quicker and cheaper, to use WordPress with Theme, and then let the designer modify the parts and graphics to suit the style required.

My first website was created in 1996 using a basic text editor and code provided by the new type of Internet magazines. Progressing through FrontPage to my current software, Microsoft Expression 4, Over the last 16 years, (I'm 70 plus now) I found I am not a web designer, a graphic designer or a code creator. I do like helping small companies with my background in international marketing, sales and have worked on a number of business websites, providing ideas, support and using networking media to spread their message.

Anyway, enough about me, how can I help you?
