If you are a person who has many thoughts that you would like to publish or perhaps you like fashion and want to show that interest, then WorldPress is your best friend.

WordPress is really an amazing content management system, that allows you to build stunning and amazing websites within few hours.

Pros

I love how clean and simple it looks and I especially love how you can view your Box folders through a finder window on your computer's desktop.

MW

Maggie W.

Outstanding support team that can assist with customizing Box to fit your needs. Box saves time and allows for great communication channels between team members, trade partners, and customers.

TG

Thomas G.

I LOVE that I can search for a file just by typing in the name, regardless if I know where exactly I filed it. I love the ease of opening a file to make changes and saving it again.

Cons

As a result, I'm forced to disapprove and delete spam comments individually, and when you get hundreds of these kind of spam comments each week, you can imagine that it can be frustrating.

NS

Nikola S.

Wordpress is really limited in its features and functionalities. More than that, the support for customers is bad.

BR

Barbara R.

We've found ourselves stalled out badly with problems at times because a theme or plugin had terrible support.

Kurt H.

Cons

Sadly it does not work on my kindle Ir the android tablet I had. With everything going mobile these days, you would think they'd be compatible by now.

Renee G.

This product has very limited functionality in some areas which could be a bit frustrating at times.

The organization of Box is awful, but this could be my company's fault.

Incredibly Versatile CMS

Reviewed 3 years ago

Wordpress ticks all the boxes in terms of versatility and user experience. The fact that it is free to download and use is an absolute bonus.

Pros

The great thing about Wordpress is that it can be used in many different ways: as a blog, as an e-commerce website or just a commercial website. The possibilities are endless! With countless themes and plugins available, both free and paid for, you can often get what you need with this CMS system. I find it's really ease to use which is useful for customers who wish to update their own website.

Cons

Gutenberg replacing the WYSIWYG editor in the Wordpress 5.0 update was an unpopular change for me. It should have been released as an optional editor, such as the plugin version, rather than a full replacement. Fortunately, the Classic Editor plugin is available for free which allows you to use the WYSIWYG editor once again.

Built for Blogging, but You Can Do So Much More with It

Reviewed 4 years ago

I was able to start a business with just a few months of web design experience and nail an excellent job. I am incredibly grateful for WordPress and feel like I owe a great debt to its contributors.

Pros

I design all my client websites in WP. It's easy to use, easy to explain how to use when I hand off a website, and it's free. What more could you ask for? With the myriad plugins out there, you can almost always find a plugin for your needs without paying for it. Of course, you do need to purchase plugins every now and then, but that sure beats the costs associated with some other CMSs. I'm able to easily manage users, orders, pages, products (with WooCommerce), etc. It's no wonder why somewhere between 25% and 30% of the internet is powered by WordPress.

Cons

I do wish there was more out of the box, even if that meant you had to go to your settings/tools and check a few boxes to enable certain admin menu items. Having to use plugins for almost everything is a bit cumbersome at times, and there can be compatibility issues. Out of the box, WP is very easy to use, don't get me wrong, but it doesn't do a whole lot without plugins and/or premium themes.

Wordpress, NOT for Complete Beginners

Reviewed 2 years ago

Although Wordpress is a fairly fast and easy way to get website up and running relatively fast, it requires a lot of upkeep, maintenance, and constant monitoring and continuous configuring of code updates and settings to keep running smoothly and safely in the long run. Do not reccomend to complete beginners or novices. Highly recommend to business owners who have a budget for proper upkeep and maintenance.

Pros

Highly customizable with extensive knowledge and experience

Cons

Doesn't work out the box, needs a lot of customization and configuring in order to work properly, not for Complete beginners.

Wordpress v. Wix v. Squarespace

Reviewed 3 years ago

My experience with WordPress has been mixed. I've used it personally for my own resume/portfolio, and professionally for a non-profit I volunteered for. For personal use it's great. I don't have anything sensitive on the site and it's really more for blogging. For the non-profit, it was a bit harder because I had to integrate a payment portal, but other than that, it's perfect for our needs. Overall, it's easy to use and it's perfect for anyone wanting to customize it for specific business needs without investing a lot of money in it. If you're a freelancer or just looking for something more basic, Wix or Squarespace would be easier.

Pros

It's very easily customizable if you know some html/css. For front end devs/those who know a bit of front end development can do a lot with WordPress and create any type of website you want.

Cons

The main con with WordPress (and any out of the box website builder) is security vulnerabilities and bloating causing slower website speed.

We use WordPress for everything

Reviewed 2 years ago

We use Wordpress almost exclusively. We use it on our own website, and for all of the websites we create for our clients. If there is a specific requirement of a client, finding a plugin that will do it is easy, and if one does not exist, creating a new plugin or theme is pretty easy to do.

Pros

WordPress is the most flexible, straightforward, easy to customize CMS out there. There are so many plugins and themes out there to use it right out of the box.

Cons

As with any web-based software, it constantly has updates and that can break custom themes and plugins.

One of the easiest ways to build a website

Reviewed 2 years ago

Wordpress has made it easy to manage my database website and has saved me loads of time! Instead of trying to learn code, Wordpress can easily integrate features through plug ins or themes.

Pros

It's easy to use right "out of the box", there are so many pre-built themes that you can integrate into the platform that makes launching a website easy.

Cons

Some of the demo features on themes are not easy to implement or to use. Some themes have better support than others for this, its more about the authors of the theme than Wordpress though. Wordpress is a consistent CMS experience.

The best CMS out there for advanced sites

Reviewed 7 months ago

I love, all of my websites run on WordPress. The wide selection of plugins available for WordPress also makes it an easy recommendation.

Pros

I love the flexibility. With WordPress you can create the backend infrastructure for your users, meaning you can set it up for non technical people to handle just fine, without compromising on flexibility and features on site.

Cons

Out of the box, it can be overwhelming for beginners because of it's tons of feature. Luckily there is a ton of knowledge over the web.

Best out of the box product for a great looking SEO friendly website

Reviewed 3 years ago

Cheap and reliable software to build your website on.

Pros

First, WordPress is completely free. there's no beating that price point! Secondly, the customization possibilities are virtually endless with all of the different plugin and theme choices that are also available for free. You can also bet there are premium (paid) themes and plugins available to make your site look even more killer, or to give it some extra power or abilities under the hood. Finally, if you think that WordPress is just for blogs, think again. You can build online stores, forums, membership sites and anything else you can think of with the available customization options.

Cons

Honestly, I find it very difficult to come up with any negative points. Anything you don't like out of the box? Just change it with different themes or plugins.

If you need a fast marketing site, WordPress is the way to go

Reviewed 3 years ago

I have used WordPress extensively over the last 8 years. It is my "goto" opensource software to build a website.

Pros

The customization out of the box is way beyond any of its competitors. I can quickly design and custom code a website in days compared to weeks or months going another route. The documentation is outstanding.

Cons

The only negative things I have to say about WordPress is some of the database calls and be rather extensive. You need to make sure you are using the proper calls to get your data otherwise it can slow things down.

Wordpress for Beginners

Reviewed 3 years ago

My overall experience has been really good! I wouldn't switch to another site because this one has served me well over the years and is incredibly user friendly. Even the little amount of SEO suggestions and boxes they make available are useful.

Pros

I've been using WordPress for a few years. I started out blogging on this site without any prior knowledge of how to even start. The site is very user friendly. I've created my first blog and have over 4,000 subscribers in just a short period of time. The themes look professional and take the hard work out of it for you. I love all the widgets that you can add which gave me ideas to generate interaction with my readers. The free form html boxes are perfect for those who want to add their own coding. There is a community of other bloggers that you can reach in order to learn more in how to improve your site. This is overall a really great platform to deliver your creative writing ideas for someone who knows little about building websites.

Cons

I still have very little knowledge of SEO and the program offers some tips on adding this to your site. However, their pro package costs way too much money. I'd be interested in trying it out as a trial or doing a monthly subscription but the total cost was way to high for me to consider. I wish that they would figure something else out on the price point. It's just ridiculous how much it costs.

Great System

Reviewed 2 years ago

We are using WordPress for 5+ sites for our business all in different capacities for different purposes. Great tool to utilize as a base product that can serve many different purposes.

Pros

Easy to create a website with a variety of features - blog, informational microsite, transaction eComm site. With all of the plugins available, you're hard pressed to find something that can't be done with a plugin out of the box.

Cons

It's an open-source software and anyone can develop plugins for it. While the plugins are convenient, it quickly can become messy when updating and plugins collide causing features to stop working.
