I have now joined the world of WordPress in version 4.0.1. My Journey on a new platform begins and so ends my old site that I coded by hand using HTML and CSS and then Bootstrap.
WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS). It’s used by approx. 25% of websites. It was originally created as a blog-publishing system but evolved to support virtually any kind of site you can imagine. It was released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, American developer Matt Mullenweg and English developer Mike Little, as a fork of b2/cafelog (for information on b2/cafelog and it’s evolution to WordPress, go to the WordPress Wikipedia page and read the history section). The software is released under the GPLv2 (or later) license.
As I just mentioned I have built two other versions of this site prior to being on WordPress, those sites were done in HTML and CSS then the second in Bootstrap. Below are information on those two sites.
HTML and CSS
The First site I had built was done by hand coding in HTML and CSS. The following are screenshots taken of that site.
The next version of the site was built using Bootstrap which helps enhance the look of a site. You can view this site here, and to view the code for that site go to the GitHub repository.
