WordPress for Everything?

  • # November 21, 2008 at 10:19 am

    I’m just about to redesign a website, and have been considering using WordPress as the CMS; largely due to Chris’ enthusiasm and Videocasts.

    The one thing which is causing me to pause is the fact that I am a complete WordPress novice which has given me the two big questions . . .

    Would I be able to easily install a custom built cart in a WordPress based site?

    How Search Engine friendly would a WordPress based website and Shop be? Any tips on making the products SE friendly for example?

    I see that there are some good out-of-the-box solutions out there for WordPress, but would prefer to build my own for the client’s specific needs. What problems and/or issues could I face using WordPress to provide the bones of the site?

    All tips greatly appreciated.

    Thanks Jitendra. I’m not really after a theme though. Just asking if there are any issues that I might face with the way a WordPress site is constructed (and structured) when it comes to adding a bespoke shopping cart facility? Are there any programming issues with WordPress as opposed to adding the programming to a regular (‘static’) site?

    Thanks again.
