    Wordpress is king. 25% of all websites globally are now using it. In saying that, while the functionality and potential outweighs most, for a new ecommerce store platforms such as Shopify and Squarespace are simple and effective.

    If you want to customise your WP theme (beyond its built in functionality), you will need a basic understanding of CSS. Which is pretty simple to pick up, with the awesome features built into Chrome and Firefox (whatever you do, don’t use explorer).

    When first using WP, the learning curve is steep (and frustrating), however, it is extremely rewarding if you are looking to increase your web dev knowledge. Know your end goal – if it is simply to build an online store, WP may not be the answer, if you would like to increase your web dev knowledge, WP is the way to go.
