The popular open web publishing system Wordpress can be a simple, as Wordpress makes it easy to not only blog, but also to refresh content on standard websites. This ease of deployment and daily management has made Wordpress a very attractive option as a full content management system for traditional websites. However, while the daily usability of Wordpress is very good, one area where less experienced site builders can find difficulty is in creating custom site layouts and configurations. Doing this in Wordpress typically requires choosing a theme for your site layout and then manually editing the various php configuration files for the theme, which can be a daunting task for those with limited web script experience. However, PageLines Platform Pro, a new framework system for Wordpress, makes laying out and configuring a website in Wordpress as easy as adding content to the site. PageLines Platform Pro provides new configuration options that make it possible to easily set up the layout of a new Wordpress website.
