See also

Converting PSD files into themes for WordPress, Joomla, Drupal or other Content Management System has become a growing trend in web development now. But it is important for us to understand whether opting for PSD to WordPress Conversion is benefitting or not?

Long-gone are the days, when WordPress was regarded as merely “blogging software” for some time and lacked the features needed to be called a perfect CMS. In today’s scenario, WordPress has become a preferred choice among businesses, especially among small and medium sized businesses for developing content-driven websites, regardless of how easy or complex the website may be.

Before we dive into the world of WordPress, it’s important for us to understand the reasons that makes WordPress excels over Joomla or Drupal as listed below:

Ease of Use

WordPress is an easy-to-use CMS that even a non-technical person can install and set-up. Now, that’s what helps it win crown over any other CMS.

Anyone can set up a blog or create pages, upload images or videos and perform several other tasks on WordPress easily that too within few hours, and that don’t even require you to reading lengthy manuals. However, ease-of-use is an issue that both Joomla and Drupal are still working on. Well the reason can be the fact that WordPress was developed for content-driven people like bloggers and had features that made it possible for any non-techie to work upon it without the need for technologists. While on the other hand, any progress in Joomla and Drupal is dependent upon the technologists.

For an instance, you will be amazed to know that Drupal still doesn’t have a WYSIWYG editor. While WordPress comprises of the WYSIWYG editor, which is an added advantage for any non-technical person who have problems working with HTML or any other languages.

Creating Blogs

Let’s admit it! WordPress is a great “blogging software”. It is the blog factor that established WordPress as a CMS.

Customization

WordPress makes available hundreds of easily free customizable pre-developed templates, allowing even the most inexperienced user to easily customize their needs in order to meet their personal or business needs. What’s more? Some of these themes come with responsive feature, which allows for smooth mobile optimization.

Apart from themes, WordPress offers you with thousands of plugins and widgets to choose from, to enhance your site’s look and feel.

Effectiveness

Unlike Joomla and Drupal that were designed as complete CMS, WordPress wasn’t a true CMS. But, WordPress since the beginning of its foundation had a clear target audience, that is, bloggers, and has been a success in building successful business from the day of its establishment.

There is a very famous proverb that “capitalism always wins”. This goes well with the concept of WordPress. WordPress was specifically designed to meet the needs of the bloggers and provided services to fix their problems. Whereas, CMS likes Joomla and Drupal were designed with everything that could help a person to build a website but nothing was defined which made them less effective than WordPress.

If you want to leverage benefits of WordPress themed website, then PSD to WordPress Theme conversion is an apt choice for you!
