Caching, and why clients need it for their sites, was one of the most popular subjects during our event. The simple answer is that your site needs caching since it is great practice for ensuring that websites, especially those on speedy servers, load as soon as possible. Almost every fast website you’ve ever visited use numerous levels of caching. Read-only files are presumably familiar to you. They are static files that are just displayed. To put it another way, most websites are “read mostly” in nature. They are read, and site owners make modifications as necessary.
Websites, on the other hand, are read far more frequently than they are updated. Because the content does not change frequently, it can be cached instead of being requested from the server every time.
Without caching, the browser must go to the site server’s hard disc every time you visit a page, extract the PHP files, and then run those programs, which connect to the site’s database. As a result, the browser must additionally read the database.
How do you set up a cache for your WordPress site?
It should be a caching plugin if you just install one plugin on your WordPress site. Automatic’s WP Super Cache comes highly recommended. Other good WordPress caching plugins are also available. We’ve tested the majority of them, and WP Super Cache has proven to be the most effective.
At the customer meetup, there were a lot of queries concerning website themes. Choosing a theme is crucial since it determines the look and feel of your website.
NOTE: Your content will be better served by a good theme.
Yes, your theme is crucial, but the content on your site is even more so. Your content is what gives your visitors value, keeps them reading, and encourages them to make a purchase or subscribe to your blog.
It’s a good idea to start by considering your content before deciding on a theme. Whether it’s blog entries, photographs, videos, or something else, your content should give the information your audience wants in a format they can use. When you know what kind of material you want on your website, you can start looking for a theme that will accommodate it.
Content with a creative bent is intriguing. Creative site navigation, on the other hand, should be avoided because it may cause users to become confused. The easier your site is to use, the more time visitors will spend there.
At WordPress.org, there are a few of the most popular themes.
Look for a theme that adheres to the navigational conventions that your visitors will expect. If you’re not sure what those requirements are, have a look at the websites of your competitors or other businesses in the same industry. Menus, pages, product catalogs, and other elements of a decent theme will adhere to these requirements.
A good theme won’t require HTML or CSS changes
Find a theme that allows you to adjust the items you want while limiting the amount of customization you have to perform. If you need to change a theme’s code to make it work with your site’s content, you should generally look for another option.
First and foremost, modern themes should not necessitate frequent, if any, HTML updates. Second, folks who are new to websites and establishing a business should concentrate on their business and site content rather than fussing with the theme’s code.
And altering theme code isn’t something you do once. You must retain such changes every time you update those items in the future. You’ll spend more time working on your theme and less time working on your content as time goes on, because content is where your site’s value will come from. You may adapt a theme to meet your needs once you’ve decided which one will give you the style you want, the proper structure for your information, and the flexibility you require.
