Out of the box, WordPress is not the most glamorous platform. The ability to extensively customize WordPress with plugins and themes makes it the most popular CMS.
Plugins are great in that if you want your site to have a certain function, chances are there is a plugin out there for it. If not, it’s possible one can be developed.
If you are running a WordPress website, security should be a main concern. There are several reasons for this. One is that many hackers will intentionally target older versions of WordPress with known security issues. In many cases, WordPress sites are compromised because their core files and/or plugins are outdated.
As one of the most popular website platforms, WordPress gets a lot of attention. Unfortunately, sometimes this attention is from malicious users looking to hack websites.
Sucuri estimates about 9 million websites are currently hacked or infected.
Recall a time you have shopped on a website and clicked on a product recommendation. Did this recommendation influence your purchase decision?
As shoppers, product recommendations are useful. They display products that are likely to fit your needs according to the product you are looking at or what you are reading online. As shoppers, we value recommendations. We tend to trust them.

If you’re a WordPress developer, you probably hear this question on a regular basis. “It depends” just doesn’t seem to satisfy people’s curiosity these days, so WordPress developers are required to come up with an answer that will give people a general idea.
One of the most frequently asked questions on WordPress forums and discussion groups is: “how much should I charge for developing a WordPress site?”
Reading through people’s responses, we see that not only there is no definite answer, but it actually takes a lot more than a freelance WordPress developer to answer that question. Pricing and quoting requires seeing the bigger picture, believing in your abilities, and strong negotiation skills.
Over the past few months, the CreativeMinds team has been working on a number of new plugins, all intended to improve the user experience, visibility and readability of your WordPress blog.

As the fastest growing content management system in the world, WordPress in 2015 is becoming the ultimate solution for a wide spectrum of web based projects.
Among the varied WordPress capabilities are things like forum sites, online business directories, video courses, online booking systems and of course, online stores.
