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 am particularly impressed by your support, which is quick and friendly. I am pleased with the entire team.
The platform is a lot more stable now than what it was when I started using 1.5 years ago. Knowledgeable and prompt support helps you get around any issues or help using the platform.
But so far it seems to be one of the best. It is quite easy to use and the tutorial was helpful.

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

The lack of other models of licensing, example: license only for web development - with a lower price.
The only point in which we would work more is the documentation, there's a lack of some usefull information.
Developer licence no longer available, $24k per year per application.

WaveMaker

Wavemaker is the ultimate development platform, comparing to open source

Reviewed 5 years ago

This platform is most hidden from anywhere in Google search. When you're looking for website, or software development, you come across a patchwork of tools which are haphazardly used to create a workflow. Anything from database schema tools, front end, back end, security all require a tremendous amount of time and effort. Our case use was creating a video sharing service. We analyuzed WordPress,...

Pros

Ease of use. Every tool imaginable on other open source solutions requiring a plugin or module are already available. The database schema tool is far beyond other third party tools. The GUI form building, data linking, and aesthetic control are that of a desktop app. The level of sophistication is above just rapidly developing and app. Wavemaker is also a very sophisticated IDE for Java. The list of Wavemaker features and uses is beyond the scope of this Capterra entry. Coming from the world of WordPress and Drupal, I have ditched them both in favor of Java and Wavemaker.

Cons

In the beginning the price and available features were odd. For nearly $10,000 per year you could acquire a Wavemaker license for ONE app. After some time, Wavemaker now offer unlimited app development for $99 per month. So there are no CONS at this point in my experience with Wavemaker. Customer service is awesome.
