Wordpress Theme Designer – Patrick Sy
Welcome to my official WordPress Themes Website!
Hi there! I’m Patrick, a web developer specializing in front-end web development. I have a Bachelor’s Degree in Multimedia with extensive experience in building and developing websites. As a designer, I believe in simple, clean and functional designs that has a modern but elegant feel to it. As a developer/programmer, I prefer clean hand-coded script that helps in making it easier to maintain and distribute.
I think a good design will always attract attention, but a great design will stand the test of time; I’m really hoping that this theme can do both, or just the former at least… So far I’ve had this theme running since 2010, and I’ve yet to get that urge of changing the way it looks – did a few changes to the markup though read it here.
I was initially planning to launch this as a WordPress theme distribution website, but haven’t quite found the time to make new themes, them bills don’t just pay themselves you know… Anyway, I’m now making this my official Portfolio website since I no longer want to maintain the old domain name [www.patricksy.com].
Ok, so I’ve been a wordpress fan for a while now.
I’ve been using WordPress for more than seven years and in many different types of projects, I’ve used a lot of other Content Management Systems as a developer, ran Joomla, Drupal, Dot Net Nuke and other open source stuff, I’ve also tried PHP frameworks like CodeIgniter and CakePHP but for some reason I always find myself going back here.
I’m not saying one CMS is better than another, as it will always go down to familiarity and extendability -as a developer; and simplicity and ease of use -as an end-user.
Here are some of the reasons I use WordPress
- It’s Open Source
You just gotta love open source. For me, it’s definitely at the top of my “best things that ever happened to the world wide web” list. By the way, for those who don’t know what that means, put simply, it’s FREE…
- It’s Simple
If you’ve seen how easy it is to use and install plugins and themes via one click of a mouse button to drastically change the appearance and features of your website, you’ll know what I’m talking about.
- It Has Awesome Documentation
One of the main things I love about WordPress is it’s documentation. Everything you need is simply there. I don’t claim to know everything there is to know about WordPress because I don’t have to.. and whenever I need to know something, I just go pop-up the WordPress Codex
- It’s More Than Just a Blogging Tool
You can always extend your WordPress installation to get the functions that you need in a typical website, which I think is just awesome!
Don’t take my word for it
