WordPress is a much-loved website platform for businesses due to its popularity and accessibility. Its widespread use means it has a lot of great features and plug-ins to choose from, as well as plenty of support when needed, making it an excellent choice.
But aside from choosing a platform, you’ll also need to decide how your site will be coded. If you’re hiring an external developer, they may already have a plan in mind of what they’ll be using. But if you’re clued up on the matter and want to have a say, here’s what you need to know.
The best languages to use on WordPress
While there are plenty of different programming languages to use when building a website, but for today, we’re going to focus solely on WordPress development.
Later on, you may find that certain plug-ins require XML and MySQL, but you won’t need those to get started in building a simple website.
Deciding what you’ll be coding
Another thing to consider is what you’ll be coding. Are you building an entire site from scratch? Just a theme? A plug-in?
If you’re building something specific, you’ll need to know what you’d like your finished project to achieve – which may have an impact on the language you’ll need to use to build it.
