Whether you’re a new blogger or an old hand, you’ve certainly heard about WordPress. You’ve also probably heard of other CMS softwares - Joomla and Drupal, for instance. We could list a whole bunch of the CMS suites here, but that’s not the point. The point is that no matter how many CMS suites have flooded the market, WordPress still reigns supreme.
And if you’ll hold on for a minute, we’ll tell you why.
WordPress started out as a blogging platform, primarily, but it has evolved over time into a powerful open source CMS platform. Today, WordPress is the engine behind millions of sites – eCommerce sites, business sites, job boards – you name it. If there’s something WordPress cannot do, all you have to do is download the plugin for that job. That’s WordPress for you – highly flexible and adaptable, with limitless functions and possibilities.No wonder many kinds of sites have been developed using WordPress. There are CMS sites, blogs, game arcades, picture galleries, portfolios, online shopping stores, rating websites, membership sites, video sites – the list is endless!
Open Source Magic!
Any developer who can play around with open source code can customize WordPress to create any kind of site. What’s more, given that WordPress is supported by a wide community of developers, the code is updated regularly with bug and security fixes. Whenever a new version of WordPress is available, all users are notified, and can update their version with a single click.
Even Kids Can Use It!
