We had the good fortune of connecting with Kyle Thompson and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Kyle, what’s something about your industry that outsiders are probably unaware of?
An Unfriendly & Crude CMS There are multiple reasons, but lets tackle a few very quickly. It’s good for blogging but that’s about it. The platform was made for a one page site with just content and an image. Small business owners don’t need just a blog, but a fully functional, business-centric website that drives leads and revenue Unfriendly back-end The wordpress backend is designed for programmers only. When a developer hands over the website to the client, the usability is totally compromised to the end user. This results in a client being a hostage to the development company and not being able to edit their website at all. A total horror show. Plugins A plugin is a piece of software containing a group of functions that can be added to a WordPress website. They can extend functionality or add new features to the site. Since the plugins are free they are rarely updated and are out of date. The client’s site can break at any moment. f the Plug-ins work they usually don’t collaborate with each other Most WordPress projects utilize a mix of third party plug-ins, which may have been developed by different vendors. You can imbibe the desired functionality by getting the right plug-in, but how do you make them collaborate? The problem with plug-ins is that they integrate well with native functionalities of WordPress, but if you want your third party plug-ins to collaborate with each other then it calls for expensive customizations that eventually will break with time.
