About Lesson

With WordPress, you can build virtually any kind of website. Here are just a few examples of the types of websites you can build with WordPress.

  • Blogs– A blog is a special type of website devoted to sharing thoughts, photos, reviews, tutorials, recipes and so much more. Blogs usually display the most recently-published content first. An example is www.muzungubloguganda.com, a travel blog where Charlotte Beauvoisin writes about Uganda’s tourism and adventure experience.
  • E-commerce websites– An e-commerce website is one where you can sell goods or services online and collect payment via an online payment system. An example of  an e-commerce website built with WordPress is zabuys.com.
  • Business website – The benefits of having an online presence are more than ever visible. For a business that needs a website for customers to learn about their company and what it has to offer, WordPress is an excellent option. An example of business websites built with WordPress is www.trillionventures.net.
  • Membership website– A membership website allows you to put content behind a paywall or an account login. To access pages or posts, users must login or pay for the content. WordPress can also handle membership websites with additional plugins.
  • Portfolio website – Portfolio websites help you show off your work for example artwork, design skills and more. WordPress is still the easiest option to use when building a portfolio website. 
  • Forum website– A forum website can be a helpful place for users to ask questions or share advice. As a mater of fact, many forum websites run on WordPress.
  • Event website– Hosting an event, preparing a wedding? WordPress makes it easy for you to share your event details and sell tickets. For example, when the Uganda WordPress Community of Uganda organised a WordCamp in 2019, the event website was https://kampala.wordcamp.org/2019/.
  • E-learning website– Supposing you needed students to take an online course, track their progress, download resources and much more from an e-learning website, WordPress would be a perfect choice. With a Lesson Management System, you can offer online courses from a WordPress website. For example, the course you are doing now is powered by WordPress.
