It on their own site? How to prevent this?

Anyone can do anything. No way to prevent it except try to get someone honest, if they prove not to be then ask them to stop and if they don't then sue.

In other words, your mostly SOL if they are fraudsters. The way I prevent it is I design all my websites myself.

There is a learning curve to Wordpress but it's well worth the investment in time. I love that I can just go in and change things at any time on my own from anywhere in the world.

While they can use your computer to do the work it's easy for them to copy the files when you aren't looking not to mention you could be sitting there for hours and hours multiple times. And then what if you need changes, and there are many on an ongoing basis? You gonna run over to them every time? It's totally impractical.

For any changes in wordpress, one does not need to reinvent the wheel. Just selecting the relevant pages in the dash and click in the relevant module and make the changes. It's robust and incredibly flexible: that's the advantage of wordpress. For changes, it's quite easy to do so.

If you want the latter be prepared to invest some time to learn wordpress properly and about installing themes, which ones are appropriate, modifying the child theme, various woocommerce development environments, installing and configuring plugins, some custom css, optimizing page load times, employing SEO, google analytics, auto backups, cpanel, etc. (and that's only 10% of it if you want a website that is even mildly competitive).

WordPress is specifically designed for newbies and other users who don't want to learn the ins and outs of website development. Anyone who's truly familiar with coding will tell you the same thing. I've got 20 years of software development background, including 8 years of website development for municipalities and utility companies. And when I volunteered to pick up our golf league's WordPress based website, I wanted to throw it away and start over because it wouldn't let me do what I wanted to do. Yeah, you can put together something easily and quickly. But the limitations quickly become apparent.FlyingBizman wrote: ↑Jan 16th, 2019 4:24 pm*
Wordpress requires a basic competence level. *, let's examine what wordpress is. It's not an elementary level code that any newbie can do. HTML: maybe, not wordpress. So, anyone working in wordpress will have some coding experience, which of course, makes it obvious that it will not be an amateurish site, but a sleek one. Anyone familiar with coding will tell you the same thing.
