Four Ways of Developing a WordPress Website in 2022
WordPress CMS was first released back in 2003, and has quickly evolved to become one of the most popular content management systems on the web. In this post, we’ll outline four ways you can use the platform to develop your own WordPress website.
1) The Classic Theme Development
2) Full Site Editing
This is the new way of developing where you mainly define your website settings such as colours, typography, and layout in JSON format. This involves minimal PHP and once the theme is configured, you can design your layouts easily with FSE tools.
3) Using Customizable Theme or a Plugin
This is probably the most used method where you can use a customizable theme or a plugin to design and develop your website.
4) Headless aka Jamstack
With the headless development method, you can generally use a front-end framework or library in order to create the layout and generate the pages by pulling data from the built-in Rest API that can be also extended.
