Forgive my newbie-like ignorance.
I am a new partner in a business which over the years has provided business websites. The original authors of these sites are non-contactable and I now have the situation where a customer has asked for some changes to their website.
I have established that the site was created with WordPress, however that's as much as I know.
What I need to know is, how can I edit this site. On one hand I am told that I cannot use WP to edit an existing site, then someone else has told me I can. I have spoken to our web hosts who have a CPanel program which allows me to add the WP software to the website in question but they say I cannot edit the site, merely wipe it and start again.
Is there a way to get round this?
I would be most grateful for any help!
