So here it is guys and gals; the first of my entries that deal with the topics I actually want to cover. The posts before were more introductory in nature, although some future posts from time to time will also be administrative and logistic stuff. This one titled “Implementing WordPress on StudioTim”, focuses exactly on that: adding the WordPress application to my old—or current depending how you look at it— website. If you have not read The Basics of HTML and CSS, I would recommend taking a look at it first. It explains some of the jargon and techno babble used in this post. Don’t worry, it’s a (relatively) short read.

What is WordPress?

“I don’t get what’s the big deal, You could have just taken one of the thousands of available templates online and worked with that, and you didn’t have to register your own domain and web space.” That’s true, however those are templates from other users. Its not something that’s unique or something that’s never been done before on StudioTim. The most popular reason people use WordPress is its ability to easily create a website and allow people to start blogging. If you’re a regular user of the internet, meaning you’re connected to the web at least once every other day, you will most likely have stumbled upon a web page or web site that uses WordPress or another popular blogging tool. I don’t have any statistics that say what the most used blogging tool is, but I know WordPress is popular in our generation’s culture.

I think what most people don’t know is how WordPress can be used as a platform for an existing website, i.e. It’s not just a way to setup your own blog, but a way to organize your data to be more presentable and efficient to readers. To be more specific, I took my website and everything on it and converted it into a SQL/PHP-enabled database. The database allows entries to be tracked, categorized, assigned different tags, and all other things that a database would normally do.

Examples of how WordPress makes my life easier, and screenshots to follow.
