Recently, while perusing Freelancer.com gigs I noticed a project poster who wanted a WordPress expert to convert his web site to that environment.
The thing is-- his site was really very nice. The problem? It was entirely Flash. If he wanted to add a page-- he needed a Flash developer. If he wanted to change a menu item-- he needed a Flash developer
Yes, Flash can add some really neat effects. And media players developed using Flash are some of the best on the web.
I have seen a lot of requests on Freelancer.com like the one I referenced above. The project posters want something they can easily change if they have to-- without hiring a Flash or ColdFusion developer.
WordPress does make it easy for a site owner to add a page or change a menu item-- if the right template is selected.
Media Players? Flash is still the one to beat-- but these players are really Java players that hook into the Flash Player download that most web surfers use.
Think carefully before signing up to have a site developed that you cannot maintain yourself.
