WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS). It is currently the most popular CMS, powering almost a quarter of all websites – a figure that rises daily. WordPress is a flexible and useful creation tool. It allows you to develop any website you desire: a personal blog, a professional portfolio, a business website, a magazine etc. Websites created with WordPress are Search Engine Optimized. They also include powerful media management and publishing tools. You can change your website’s display with themes so that you have a beautiful and unique layout. Its functionality can be further extended with the use of multiple plugins. WordPress is secure, effective and simple to use.
Themes are one of the main features WordPress has. A theme regulates the appearance of your material and provides control over it. Themes can be installed without altering the content of your website, although custom content specifically created for one theme may not operate properly on another.
Essentially, a WordPress theme is a collection of files that work together in producing a graphical interface with an underlying design. Themes may include customized template files, image files, custom pages etc.

Plugins are additions that are used to extend the functionality that already exists within WordPress. To its core, WordPress is designed to be lean and lightweight. That way it maximizes flexibility and minimizes code bloat. Sometimes though a website requires more than the standard functions WordPress provides. Plugins offer new additions that either enhance the features that are already available or add advanced features. In doing so, each user can tailor their website according to their specific needs.
MagicPress has selected plugins preinstalled for your convenience.
