One of the major questions asked when building a website or a blog using WordPress framework, is the question whether you need HTML or other languages knowledge to achieve this task.
So, I compiled a list of some questions and answers that will help clarifying this subject:
1-Can you build WordPress without HTML and does HTML codes have any function with CMS?
1-Yes you can, because WordPress is a CMS that enables you to build websites and blogs.
2-Basic HTML codes can help you modify the a webpage or a blog post. This can be done without adding plug-ins and without buying new premium themes.
2-What is HTML and what role it plays nowaday?
1-HTML is the coding language used to build a basic webpage. It was the first coding used for the web.
2-Nowadays, there are many programming languages besides HTML to add more functionalities for the web page. Although, you can build a website without knowing any coding, it is still useful to know how to read the basic HTML.
3-What is WordPress and does it contain HTML codes besides the PHP programming?
1-Wordpress is a framework that enables you to build a website and a blog without using codes, or without any programming knowledge. Once you learn to use the dashboard; which is the administration of your website, you start to be productive.
2-PHP is related to the programming language of the database used by WordPress platform. However, the HTML codes are still make up the web pages of your website and blog.
4-What codes I use for this site and why?
1-Since I use the free 2016 theme provided with the webhosting of my website, it doesn’t come with all option I need, so I had to modify the code to be able to resize the fonts, change their type, highlight a text, and change the title color of a page.
1-I find HTML easy to understand and to use to do minor modifications.
6-What resources for HTML codes?
1-I prefer the W3school that provides HTML coding explanations with other coding languages.
As a beginner, I never tried to learn more than the basics of HTML, when WordPress wasn’t around. Nowadays, if you are a starter, I would encourage you to use a framework that enables you to build a website and a blog without any coding knowledge.
As you become more productive and need more options and flexibility, I advise you to learn some basic HTML coding.
