Interview on

Dhane Crowley of kindly asked me to answer a few questions on why WordPress can be a useful tool to companies having – or wanting – a web presence.

Q5: What would you say is the single most important aspect of creating a Website – aesthetics, function, or something else?

Usability. If a website looks great but I can’t find the search feature the site is useless. If the search feature works but presents the results unintelligibly the site is also useless. Usability means making it simple for a user to accomplish a task or get information and requires equal focus on form and function.

Q6: Why should a business use WordPress to power their Websites?

WordPress allows you to manage a website’s content and function independently of how it looks and without specialist knowledge of HTML, CSS, PHP etc. Writing or editing a blog post, article, event or product page is as easy as writing an email in GMail or Yahoo! Mail.
