Pros

Overall, I am very happy with WordPress and highly recommend it to everyone who wants to have a bang for their buck. It's fully functional and a very powerful CMS app.
The plugin marketplace is great, you can always find a great and suitable theme for your website needs. WP is famous enough to have integrations with almost every service and company out there.
I love being able to preview any and all changes before committing to it. Also, the plugins are a godsend, it makes life so much easier when dealing with special features.

Pros

I especially like the ease at which it publishes great pages. My team has picked up on the friendly UI pretty quickly which lowers the bar to participate.
Overall, Confluence is best when used in conjunction with Jira and other software. I don't think Confluence is the best tool for writers and editors, but it works great for tech teams.
Confluence is a good tool to share documents; it offers a good search function and the solid level of templates available make the software easy to use.

Cons

Cons: if you change you ip on a linux server it is a pain in the ass to get running again. But in the end i got it.
Pricey plugins, I also hate that the plugins aren't regulated meaning that a plugin can stop updating and I'm forced to either find a new one or brace myself of being hacked.
WordPress sites are vulnerable to hacking, attacks and spamming and often you only learn this once you've been attacked. More should be done for security.

Cons

It has interruptions problem will make it useless. Design by Groupthink so its lack of design commit features.
It can be a bit difficult to navigate if you’re not working in Confluence frequently and you’re not familiar with how your organization has configured the project trees.
For example, I could not figure out a way to prevent a Unix filename string from being broken on a slash due to wraparound. There should be a way to mark a string as "non-breaking", but there is not.

Atlassian Confluence

Confluence is a great next step

Reviewed a year ago

We use Confluence primary for KM management and we especially like how easy it is to move the thousands of KM articles over and have them be indexed.

Pros

I love the ease of the product and easy it is to update content for our KM data. It also allows us to move data over very easily.

Cons

There is a little bit of a learning curve for anyone using Joomla or WordPress to using this product.

Atlassian Confluence

Once a Market Leader

Reviewed a year ago

We use Confluence for hosting Tech Blogs, Incident post-mortems and various other info for our Tech Community. As a Tech company, most of our users seem to find the product easy enough to use, but for those outside of Tech, they find the UI dated and overly complicated versus Wordpress (for example).

Pros

Confluence is user-friendly and welcoming to new users, but only if you're familiar with other products that Atlassian offer (JIRA etc.)

Cons

Confluence was once the market-leader but now seems to rely too heavily on name rather than product. The UX seems dated and somewhat bloated compared to others in the sector

Atlassian Confluence

A great enterprise wiki with the right planning

Reviewed 4 years ago

We had the need for a central documentation source and found SharePoint to be lacking. Confluence was a good fit and works well on mobile for reading (which is how most use it where I work.) Authoring required staff who were unfamiliar with blogging or WordPress to be trained, especially those coming from a MS Office background. But those used to web publishing took to it fast. Plan out your spaces and pages according to how your org is structured and based on existing directory structures you have in Active/Open/Azure Directory.

Pros

A fast and capable wiki that works on mobile

Cons

Self hosting requires in house technical knowledge and staff training will need consideration

Atlassian Confluence

The Perfect Internal Knowledge Database

Reviewed 2 years ago

When WikiSpaces recently reported that they were closing their service right after I purchased an annual membership, both myself and my employer was quite disappointing. AS a result I lost funding for our internal knowledge database (it was a pet project to improve my value to the company). As a result, I experimented with many different alternatives, and finally settled with Confluence. I have been so happy with it that I also use it for my own small businesses knowledge base. it is efficient, has a dedicated mobile app, full of features and integrations, and carries a very modern look.

Pros

An incredible amount of features and integrations. Confluence is able to easily communicate with Google apps, Microsoft Office programs, etc. It even includes it's own widgets for creating Gantt charts! The presentation is quite modern, and though I haven't dig into it yet, I've seen that there's also a theme system in place to change the appearance of the environment. Embedding pictures and diagrams are really easy and have enough options to get it to look the way you want. Confluence frequently has both minor and major updates, it can be kinda exciting to login on a Monday morning and see something new!

Cons

It would be nice to have some level of image editor native to the app, similar to what one has in WordPress. It seems to have everything but a proper footnote widget, something that I really favor in both my research and my workplace. With the frequent updates, also comes the chance that not everyone will appreciate the changes; I had been using the blog feature for a few months quite happily, but recently they changed a few of the features in the blog function to make it more mobile friendly. As a result I lost a few features that I favored. It did however improve over time and I got over the lost of those features.
