How is WordPress different from Dreamweaver

Re: Wordpress and Dreamweaver


Dreamweaver is an HTML editor. The program runs locally on your computer. With Dreamweaver you edit files on your computer (HTML files, PHP files, text files, or any other files) - in principle like the Windows editor, Notepad ++ or any other text editor.

Wordpress is a web application. It runs on a server on the Internet. You can open and edit the Wordpress code files with any text editor (e.g. Dreamweaver) and adapt and / or reprogram Wordpress as you wish.

Now understood?

Wordpress comes with a backend and a frontend. The backend is the entire article / rights / etc management, as well as the database connection. It has the task of managing the content, so to speak. The front end is the output that the website visitor sees.

Now there are ready-made themes or styles for the frontend that you can install. This allows you to personalize the front end. If this template is not yet individual enough for you, you can edit the theme with a text editor (e.g. Dreamweaver) or even create your own theme (if you know how to do that).

Alternatively, it is also possible to develop your own website that extracts and displays all the data you want to see from the WordPress article database. That would be the ultimate individual solution, because then you have your own website and you can manage the content with Wordpress, but you do not depend on Wordpress for the design of the page. But since you haven't been able to tell wordpress and dreamweaver apart correctly, I very much doubt that you will be able to do that (advanced php programming skills are required)
