Cave Wall Media – Articles…..cwmstories

My story of Getting Going with WordPress….. is:

I already had an existing website, made of html code, as you do.
It presented well, but was not interactive (it didn't need to be).

The time came when an idea for another addition to the website, required comments, and a few statistical feedback tools, for such things as page views, page likes and the feedback structure of others interacting with the site..

WordPress was chosen as a complete platform. The whole thing could be placed inside my existing website. This was great, as I could keep my original site, that I liked, and have this complete WordPress platform package, simply loaded (ready made) onto my web host server.

The latest WP package was located via the site. It was uploaded (via FTP) onto my server, then accessed by it's own admin panel. That is the beauty. Once installed, I didn't have to deal with files on the server anymore. All could be accessed, through the WP admin control panel. Very nice. Very intuitive.

The site was tweeked, in design, so it matched my original site. The theme was picked, because it was a magazine style and this was designed with visual content in mind. For me this did the trick very well (appreciation to the designer of the theme). The theme was free and as an appreciation, an acknowledgement and link was placed on my sites footer.

About My Site:… The WordPress site is set to collect and present articles, as stories, information and musings.
The site belongs to the stable of Cave Wall Media, so has a slow collection, of original style thinking, usually science based for the general public….. for education & intrigue.

Very helpful. i too have an existing site and now fancy adding a comment based section. I think I would use WordPress for this.

I have had a look on your site and it certainly has original type of content. Good Luck. (I loved the oceanography stories) x

Hi. Understand your point about afetr installation you only need deal with the WP admin control panel. Useful little sentence, thanks.
I have set up WP site now because of its ability to allow my interaction, addition and edit of my desired content and the themes are tremendous and make the layout very easy on the eye.
Like your cavewallmedia site. Small carefull content of original style. Very refreshing, from all these aggregated style content sites.
Cool Will visit once a month to be monthly revived and inspired Cool
