In the meantime, theme is used to customize the website based on company’s requirements; specific WordPress plugins and widgets are used to implement additional requirements, including submenus, user registration and login, content update, Facebook and Twitter integration, and RSS support for the new content.

The outcome of this work allows the company to use WordPress to manage the website, to publish automatically new content into online social networking services, to provide customized information to registered users as well as to allow web syndication.Key words: Content Management System, Solution Stack, Static and dynamic website, WordPress
