I design blogs and websites and like thousands of other web designers I use WordPress. Because of its user-friendly interface even those with little or no coding knowledge can use this awesome platform. As a matter of fact it is so easy that anyone (with internet knowledge and computer literate) can create a website of their own in less than few hours. If you own a business then WordPress is the way to build your online presence without the need of contacting your web designer. You can build pages, add forms, create blog posts etc on your own.
WordPress also allows you to add cool features on your website by using WordPress plugins. You may be overwhelmed by thousands of available plugins online and to help you grab the best ones here are 2 them.
1. Black Studio TinyMCE
As default WordPress has the “Text” feature available for you. This default feature is where you add texts and images on your website’s sidebar, however, HTML knowledge is required to better use it. As an answer Black Studio TinyMCE was created. Now adding texts and images on your website’s sidebar will be as easy as 1,2,3. Download it here.
