Just curios, since CMS such as Wordpress is in PHP, does this apply to that as well? I'm interested to see if there's some sort of compatibility level consistent on these platforms.

For me, I just got stuck into the thick of things, when I wanted to learn some PHP, I find that it's best to learn a little of everything when working with web technologies, unless you are a dedicated developer. It's the best insurance , as you will be able to tackle a wider variety of issues that way.

Mike Davis replied on Thu, 2014/09/11 - 12:10pm

PHP is really tricky, but if you learn the ins and outs of it, you may be able to reap tremendous benefits from it. Personally, that's why I think WordPress is becoming such a tremendous tool. Almost every website you see on the net now is in the WordPress platform, or some kind of CMS. Web design (HTML, PHP, CSS, JS, jQuery) is truly a unique tool and I'm glad that I'm a web designer and had the fortune of experiencing this tremendous art. plumbing palm bay
