My Way of WordPress.org Theme
A WordPress.org site has an infinite number of themes you can choose from. After choosing your theme, you can make necessary changes that you want to improve or make your theme better. No theme is permanent, you can activate any theme that fits you best. There is a Free Themes Directory that has different themes that you can also activate. When finding your theme, you can filter your search list based on color, columns, fixed or flexible width, and other features. WordPress.org allows you to preview it to. Whenever you want to make your own or make changes to existing themes you will need some extra files. You can also go to the edit themes in the admin or use notepad ++. A theme consists of a number of template files, all stored in the theme folder which we find in wp-content/themes. Every WordPress Theme has to include at least two files: index.php and style.css. The index file defines what content is displayed by the theme, and the style sheet contains information about the theme that WordPress uses to make the theme work correctly. Most themes have a few additional files: header.php (contains the <head> sections of each page plus the header of the website’s design), sidebar.php (contains the sidebar, including any widget areas), footer.php (contains any functions that are specific to your theme. You can develop your own WordPress Theme by first creating a Child Theme. This is your style.css file. Create the following using comments: Theme name, Theme URI, Author, Author URI, description, Version, Tags and other comments. After the stylesheet is complete, your theme should show up blank in the admin panel under themes now you can activate it. Now it’s time to fill in the template files. The main file you will need to use is the index.php file. It can be used to include all references to the header, footer, sidebar, content,…...

...our company could be saving more than a million dollars by implementing WordPress over the next 3 years. I believe 75% of the work being done by our web developers could be done more efficiently using this platform. By implementing WordPress, our current processes of developing will be more efficient and easier to adapt to future technologies. This adoption will greatly reduce the amount of time our developers waste on coding, which will cover for the initial investment of this platform. WordPress has limitless functionality and it is free. The user is free to do whatever they like with the WordPress code. They can extend it or modify it to fit their needs or they can use it for commercial projects without any licensing fees. Another great feature that improves developer’s efficiency is the workflow. There can be different types of users that can only post drafts not publish to the front page. Having different roles for users such as administrator, editor, or author, allows users to collaborate but also adds restrictions to what they can and cannot do. There are up to ten levels of different users having different privileges with regards to publishing, editing and other options. Another key feature in WordPress is its compatibility. This platform is compatible with multiple browsers, and its compliance with W3C standards, which means it has compatibility with tools of future generations. Finally, WordPress comes with thousands of plug-ins for us to work with. Most of the......

First checking to ensure that the site hosting company will provide the operating system that will support he site, for example if you are going to run the site on Microsoft Windows or on Linux. After determining the operating system then we need to ensure they will provide adequate space for storage and applications such as Drupal, WordPress or .net.

They also will support application add-in such as WordPress and Drupal which will allow me to select an add-in that I would like to support for running the site.

Cell Phone Industry

...that the industry is in there are a lot of companies that offer products that differ in some way. Not only may they differ in design, but they can also differ in plan that is offered for the cell phone. When opening a new business to join an industry it important to know if the product or good is elastic or inelastic in demand. If a product is inelastic it is unaffected to a change in price (Wordpress, 2014). In other words if a products price goes down people will not necessarily but that much more with the drop in price if the product is inelastic (Wordpress, 2014). When a product is inelastic and the price goes down the total revenue will actually get smaller and with the price goes up total revenue will go up (Wordpress, 2014). The opposite occurs when a product is elastic. If a product is elastic the change in price will affect total revenue for a product. So if the product price drops for an elastic product more people will purchase the product, which will increase total revenue and as it goes back up less people will purchase the product so total revenue will go down (Wordpress, 2014). The cell phone industry while many people may think it is a necessity, cell phones are not, but in the world today they may be coming more and more of a necessity. In saying that though the high tech multi-optional cell phones in the world today are really luxury items, which makes cell phones an elastic product. People will buy cell phones, but may not afford the really nice......

Art Survey

...services department to understand workshops and seminars suitable for art students. To achieve this purpose, this survey was done by collecting data from 22 art students in art school. Data collection was by the use of a survey questionnaire containing two questions. The first question sought to rate how students were interested in undertaking different workshops. The last question was open ended seeking to understand other workshops that students would like to attend. To avoid getting blank responses, each participant was asked the questions and the researcher wrote the response on their behalf. The results indicated that 17 students were interested in attending the creativity workshop. However, most participants were not interested in the “wordpress” workshop. For the second question only nine participants identified other workshops in which they wish to attend. A Survey was done in an Art School to find out which Workshops and Seminars would be helpful for Art Students Introduction/Problem Statement Educational institutions recognize the need of students’ involvement in decision making. This attribute is seen as vital because it helps students select what they think would benefit them and help improve on their educational outcomes (Murphy 56). In particular, education institutions have been using seminars and workshops as tools to improve on the development of their students. In designing these workshops, evaluating learning needs are significant in determining what......

What Is Wordpress?

...What is wordpress? WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL, which runs on a web hosting service. Features include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is used by more than 18.9% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013.WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites. It was first released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, Matt Mullenwegand Mike Little, as a fork of b2/cafelog. As of 26 November 2013, version 3.7 had been downloaded nearly 10 million times.The new 3.8 version, named “Parker” was released yesterday. History of wordpress According to the official WordPress Codex, WordPress is the official successor to a blogging tool developed by French programmer Michel Valdrighi named b2/cafelog, which launched in 2001. In 2002 Valdrighi stopped developing b2, which in another world could have been where the story ends, however in January 2003 Matt Mullenweg, a university freshman who was using the b2 blogging software to post photos he was taking on a trip to Washington D.C., wrote on his blog that he’d be willing to create a fork of the project, which, together with a guy named Mike Little (who now runs a web development company named Zed1), is exactly what he did. Mullenweg and Little released the first version of WordPress in May 2003. Others soon joined Mullenweg and Little, including the originator of b2, Valdrighi. In......

...directing activities, controlling project execution, reporting progress, and analyzing the results. As in other areas of business, project management … must deal with five major variables: scope, time, cost, quality, and risk.” (Laudon, 2012) Through this new system, the project manager would be empowered faster and more efficiently to begin the project once the sale is made. Business/Technical Approach RevLocal needs to focus on implementing a web-based, server-side application that can prompt for, receive, transmit and store the necessary information for the initiation of a new project. The organization specializes in Wordpress and can capitalize on its knowledge of PHP, jQuery & Javascript to create/implement a cloud-based application (with cloud storage) within Wordpress to accomplish such a goal. WordPress uses a MySQL database (Managing Your WordPress Database, 2008) to store content and other information so this will be needed so that the implementation of such solution is familiar, with fewer unknowns. Business Process Changes This change will affect the web design, sales and finance departments (whom also need the agreements to properly process the initial deposit required for a new project). Because this change is only improving the route to digital delivery of the new agreement and not a brand new means of delivery, no major reengineering of business processes would be needed, making this an ideal solution. The sales team would need brief training to......
