HTML5 and CSS3

Why It’s Important

HTML5, CSS3, JQuery, Javascript and PHP are the basic languages (code) that websites are written in.  Because we believe in coding sites the right way, we feel that we should always strive to be up-to-date on these basic standards.   One might wonder why this matters to a WordPress shop such as Webwerx, when WordPress themes, out of the box, are already loaded with great code, like HTML5 and CSS3, and, especially when WP Plugins are written in PHP and JQuery and already execute seamlessly.    It’s simple really.  Any WordPress shop whose developers and designers know these basic coding elements are able to add additional value with expertise that allows them to customize your WordPress site to make it truly shine – to be anything you want and need.

HTML5 and CSS3 is what makes your visitors go ooh and aah!  

CSS (Cascading Style Sheets) help to make your site pretty.  A developer or designer can adjust the fonts, spacing, coloring, and flow of text without a lot of advanced programming.  The latest CSS, CSS3, also helps with enhanced navigational menus, such as a sub menu or a mega menu, which allow visitors to glance at descriptions upon hover.  Additionally, CSS3 helps with responsive designs for mobile and tablet compatibility.

The latest HTML, HTML5 is outstanding universal code that makes it easy to include and handle audio, video, multimedia and graphical content on the web in multiple browsers, and also assists with responsive design.  Additionally, HTML5 makes your site load faster. 

JQuery and PHP help your visitors interact with you.

Web developers who know code can customize WP Plugins, forms, and other stand-alone interactive elements for your site, without interfering with core WP source code.
