I also love the attitude of a client wanting to do their own updates and perhaps saving a buck. However, if the client wants us to do it for them, it’s nice to have the site using WordPress for easy updating! Great article – Thanks.
Yes, I encourage all my clients to get comfortable enough with WordPress so they can update on their own. But like you said, if we have to do it, it’s nice to have the power of WordPress!
What theme did you use for the Fort Walton Beach business directory? I really like the look of the directory.
Hi David, Sorry for the delayed response. Not sure how I missed your comment. The business directory used for Downtown FWB is custom, and since I manage that site since I am on the Board…it’s relatively easy on my end.
I’m thinking of creating a plugin that will function very similar to what you see there.

I like this post.
I build my own personal websites, and I was using a CMS ( Joomla) …big powerful, complicated, and a PITA for a small site to use. I also believed that Word Press was for blogging.
I wanted to join the Symbiostock network, which requires WordPress. After checking it out I have switched over to wordpress on all my personal sites, it is really powerful, and easy to use.

I recently moved a client from Joomla to WordPress http://fwb.org/. Their admins had trouble publishing on Joomla and WordPress seems to have worked out perfectly for them!
Some people still think WP is just for blogging. Sadly, they are misinformed! 🙂
