Great solution to build landing pages / small & big websites with low budget - but if you got the money the results will be amazing.

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.

I like the fact that Google web designer gives me the ability to create stunning HTML5 designs. It is a drag and drop interface that makes thing really simple and easy to understand.

The UX is different from other Google products... and this is good. No need of HTML or javascript knowledge (though knowing them helps in getting better, ad-hoc results).

I used this for ads and banner campaigns and it was a great solution and alternative to creating embedded GIFs which are not idea for large campaigns and optimisation.

Office staff are able to easily update small things on our website like rent amounts without paying for a web designer.

I am not a marketing or web designer, but having this software allows me to make quick and simple changes to our website content, without involving website designer.

Cons

Not everything is intuitive if you are not a "web" person. I sometimes have to search for things to make updates, but do typically find them.

The must-have solution for web designers

Reviewed 2 years ago

Wordpress brings high functionality and advanced web design capability to the masses. You don't have to be an expert web designer to make very decent sites with it. But if you are a web designer, this platform can help produce attractive, reliable and functional sites very quickly. And the most amazing thing is: it's free without catches - such a rare thing these days.

Pros

Wordpress is probably the world's most powerful CMS that is also free - the rest you're going to have to pay for. There is a vast array of plugins and themes, many of them free, that will allow you to do almost anything with your website. Wordpress is maintained well, and there are plenty of free tutorials to help you get the most out of it.

Cons

The main issue with Wordpress is that it isn't the easiest drag and drop editor in the world, and you're going to need a plugin like Elementor to provide more flexibility. That said, most of the addon editors are freemium products, meaning you can do most things with the free version. It was originally designed as a blogging platform and it retains that heritage, so if your requirements are a long way away from a blog site, then Wordpress may struggle to give you what you want. Also, it tends to be slower to load than custom designed sites, but again, there are plenty of free plugins that will help you optimize loading speed.

I Use Wordpress for Most Websites

Reviewed 3 years ago

My website is built in WordPress and I have changed the template easiily and updated things with minimal effort over the years. I have also built sites for friends and taught them how to use the tool. I recommend WordPress often and am always happy to help people in this tool.

Pros

WordPress is an easy to use website builder with easy to use building and editing tools and great templates for purchase and for free. WordPress is a great web tool for individuals who do not have much website experience or understand coding. This is a great way to build a website and then easy to train individuals to use and edit on their own. That said, there are also some more advanced features which makes this an excellent choice for advanced users too.

Cons

As a graphic designer, this puts more power in the hand of the introductory web builder and less need for a graphic designer, but this makes me happy for people to be able to build their own websites.

I highly recommend WordPress

Reviewed 3 years ago

WordPress is the best platform to use when designing a website, it has a lot of features and its easy to work around. I would recommend it to small business owners who are looking to own a website but have a low budget.

Pros

I have designed 3 websites so far by myself but this was only possible because of WordPress. WordPress is the easiest way to build your website on a low budget. With its free themes I managed to get my first blog and it wasn’t so difficult to set up because of the lot of tutorials available online on how to design a website with WordPress. I love the different plugins that make it even better you are able to install all kind of plugins for whatever purpose. Most hosting companies come with WordPress this makes things even easier. The WordPress interface is easy to navigate so it becomes easy to customize a theme according to how you want your site to look.

Cons

I really don’t have any serious issues though I think if you are to get a better website you need to hire a professional Web designer.

Web design platform for non-web designers.

Reviewed 3 years ago

We hired a web designer to create a new website, and he chose this platform so we are able to make minor edits and uploads ourselves. We still contract out for major web design changes.

Pros

WordPress is an easy platform to have a website designed in, when you don't know how to write code. The way it is designed makes it easy to copy, and edit, or rearrange features in a website without starting from scratch.

Cons

There are times when I copy code from the back end, and the design is not identical for some reason. Often it is editing the color of text, or size of something.

It's quick and easy and once you get the hang of it, you can basically become a web designer in your spare time.

Cons

The WYSIWYG editor could be better. It's much too simple and often throws off the style of the site quickly. Thankfully I can code so I'll just use the HTML editor but for my clients use, it could be better.

WordPress is easy enough to use for beginners and has many optional plugins that can make a great website for just about any business.WordPress comes with updated security features and login capability for team members. WordPress also integrates with many 3rd web analytic tools like Google analytics.
