There is a reason it is the most commonly used

Reviewed 4 years ago

I've been on teams that have built and managed sites doing tens of millions of visits a month on heavily customized instances of WordPress, all the way down to personal pet projects that get single digit visits a month. It's the only CMS I consistently recommend.

Pros

The ecosystem built around WordPress is second to none. Every front end developer is familiar with WordPress. There are multiple plugin options for just about anything you could ever want to do. Most importantly, it's open source and therefore free. Some people are deterred by open source, but WordPress powers a third of the Internet, it isn't going anywhere.

Cons

It can be a bit of a pain in the butt to do certain things. For example, if you want to use it as a CMS for a larger site and not just a blog, the out of the box configuration needs customization. Also, they recently switched to a fundamentally new way of doing things "Gutenberg" and it is not without its warts. Over time this will improve.

Wordpress

Reviewed a year ago

WordPress helps me to maintain a nice & smooth web design experience and enables me to remain responsive as per meeting up with our client's project expectations. It's really a nice CMS and I highly recommend it to every web design aspirant.

Pros

WordPress is the most flexible and easy-to-work-with CMS I've used so far. I tried out other alternatives like Drupal and others, but WordPress makes the entire web-building experience easy.The tool is beginner friendly and supports a lot of third-party plugins which broadens its functionality, making my designs look great.There are many documents (provided by wordpress.org) for beginners who are just getting started and kin of help to minimize the apprenticeship process.I can't emphasize enough the flexibility I have when working on my projects (and clients') with WordPress. As a matter of, it's a tool I can't do without.

Cons

One major problem with WordPress is that there is no live support--the only place to get the support it's the community forum which isn't guaranteed (as support is provided by random users).

Wordpress, NOT for Complete Beginners

Reviewed 4 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 brings technology to you

Reviewed a year ago

When I started with Wordpress back in 2011, I found that I could learn about so many things that didn't make sense before. SEO, Google Analytics and why they were so important to my business. When I started online radio and TV, I began to work with html and some of the backend. I loved being able to update without hesitation when I had changes to make and I didn't have to talk to a programmer who didn't understand what I wanted. Would I change? Not at all. It beat Wix and Site Creator hands down. It also made sense since 90% of the technical world were creating plugins for Wordpress.

Pros

It brings the world of web design into the hands of the entrepreneur and anyone else that wants to get their product or service to the world without spending a fortune to get it there. I love that its easy to use and within hours you can have a website that links to so many places that you are soon up and running. And the help that's available worldwide makes this the product of the century.

Cons

I loved the classic layout and now that Elementor has come out its made it more difficult for someone like me who likes to work in a system where I can see what I am doing simply and easily. So that is one of the things I liked least about the upgrades. But if that's all then it still makes it the best web design software available today. Whatever Gutenberg is that makes avatars for you to ensure that as an author you can have your picture up on the article, its the worst option ever. No one I know even knows how to work that system and I hope one day they just have an option to put your picture in a circle and add it to the article as an author.

WordPress is the universal CMS

Reviewed 5 years ago

Excellent product and overall experience. WordPress helped me build out several sites and in general get a feel for web design. I'm a digital marketer, so I mostly do edits and not full-blown buildouts, but even those are easy with this CMS. I highly recommend WP for anything but large scale e-commerce.

Pros

Without a doubt, the biggest thing about WordPress are all the plugins that are available. Whatever you end up wanting to do with your Wordpress website, there's a big chance that there's already a plugin for it, which not only allows you to perform complex operations without any coding knowledge, but provides you with additional tools to fully customise the setup. With WordPress the sky is the limit...

Cons

The core of the CMS could be expanded more to include popular options you get with plugins. Third party plugins can sometimes slow down a website or conflict with one another due to coding incompatibilities. Because of this and the fact that WP can get cluttered with a bunch of plugins and you eventually end up with a backend that's hard to navigate, I think they should expand on the core a lot more than they have been.

My experience with WordPress

Reviewed 5 years ago

WordPress was a good and nice experience for me, and it definetely satisfied my blogging needs. I can´t say it was always smooth, specially when trying to customize my blog, but generally speaking I liked it a lot, specially the statistic data it provides for you and the community. I met a lot of really cool people from different countries through this site that shared my interests and published similar things to mine and that was a very enriching experience. My articles and stories got a fairly good traffic, all things considered, and I can say it mantains the time-money-value balance. Would encourage you to give it a try if you don´t mind taking your time to understand the settings.

Pros

I used WordPress for blogging for almost two years. It was a personal blog in which I published opinion pieces and short stories mostly and my experience was generally good. I really like the fact that you can select from a varity of templates that are actually nice and aesthetic, unlike other sites and softwares that provide you ten templates at most of them kind of ugly. It allows a certain flexibility...

Cons

I did not love the blog administrator interface. I think it can be more intuitive. Sometimes I struggled to understand how to edit certain aspects of my blog, because I just could not find the option. I said before that you can edit and rearrange your template, and this is really cool, but sometimes it can be tricky to understand how to do it or to get exactly the look you are going for. You move something to the right and suddenly it is back again in the left and you don´t even know why. Templates misbehave. Or they did back in my blogging days. Still, if you have enough time and patience, or you are not that much of a perfectionist, you can probably overlook this cons, they are not that big of a deal.

WordPress overall review

Reviewed 4 years ago

- I can't miss out on the chance to recommend WordPress to anyone. You kind of don't "re-invent the wheel" anymore (coding from scratch). It helps me save time and energy in creating a website for my clients rather than creating it from scratch. WordPress is generic, meaning it suits the need for any kind of website you may want to create (blog, eCommerce, portfolio, organizational, etc)

Pros

- Using WordPress is one of the easiest and fastest ways to set up a website without the need for extra cost for an experienced Web Developer. - WordPress being a free Content Management System (CMS) handles a lot of things for you. For example Security, Performance, File uploads, Search Engine Optimization (SEO) and many more. - As a part-time Freelance Web Developer, I can actually create any category...

Cons

- WordPress requires a database to run. - WordPress is widely used (powers millions of websites). This makes it vulnerable as a security flaw could be discovered and exploited by malicious individuals.

Wordpress - Must Use for Your Website (Business or Personal)

Reviewed 4 years ago

I use it for my own business site and for client sites. It is my go to and the best experience possible out there and I have tried a lot. Consider that it covers everything: 1. Well suited and coded for SEO with supporting plugins. 2. Lot of security plugins which are necessary, effective and you need to use as it is a very popular platform and thus lots of hackers are interested in it. 3. Works congruently with Social Media platforms. 4. LMS / Drip Content / Paid Gateways - it's plugin for all that. 5. Ecommerce - Woo has that cover with a massive amount of plugin and options to get what you want done. WP just does it all and very effectively, I can't imagine using something else. Plus with the community support and the ecosystem, you'd be a full not to in the majority of cases.

Pros

Top 6 - Reasons to Use Wordpress (I'd write more but ran out of space) 1. The code is already there. Coming from a corporate design background (Historically I was an online marketing director and creative director). It is a massive relief not to have to rely on a programmer to get the functionality we need for a top performing and efficient website. 2. Design wise - there are a number of templates...

Cons

The new Gutenberg blocks - As an experienced WP user I don't like it. Probably would not affect a new user. I've disabled it with a plugin so all is well. Speed - WP can be slow if you overload it with plugins and extras. You have to keep an eye on that and take measure to make it fast (which is totally possible, just consider it part of the build).

Pros

I have been using WordPress since about 2009, when I started my first personal blog on Wordpress.com - and it is still up and running. I love WordPress because it is probably the most user-friendly platform to start blogging or a website. There are lots of options - both free and paid - in terms of functionalities and appearance and you can easily build your own ones if you are an expert. A great advantage is the huge user community out there, always willing to help; when I have a question, the answer is usually already out there.

Cons

As expected, the Wordpress.com-hosted websites and blogs have limitations in functionality (i.e. the installation of plugins and add-ons), but there is always the option to self-host your site so you can have full access to the wealth of features.

Easy to use, but some work to be done

Reviewed 2 years ago

In gereral, we have been working with wordpress for almost one year, and they are definitely a company that we look up to. We are very happy with our product and the customer service was always top notch at answering our needs during the process.

Pros

Wordpress is a user-friendly app in general, but you need to know what you are doing. They are probably the best website builder in the market for both beginner/intermediate to more advanced designers. You can basically build any template you wish and this can be applied to whatever industry your business is in. You need a few guidelines, which are well provided by the platform and you can easily get the final product that you have wished for.

Cons

Even with great templates, there is still some complex functionalities in general in order for you to get where you want to be. In my case, we needed some programming as well, as the default templates did not offer exactly what we were looking for. In the end, we were able to get exactly what our web designers first brainstormed. We are still having some issues with the API/ICAL connection, but this may be an issue from our programmer or channel manager and not Wordpress.

One of the Best Free CMS

Reviewed 5 months ago

WordPress is user-friendly and highly customizable, but it requires improved security and performance optimization for an optimal experience.

Pros

The user interface of Wordpress is super friendly and no hardcore technical knowledge is required to operate or develop a website on the platform. A lot of functionality can be added by using free and paid plugins. Also, any website can be customized according to the client's expectations by using page builders and themes available there.

Cons

The security of Wordpress should be increased so that websites can be safe from malware attacks. Also, I think sometimes websites using WordPress run slowly even after optimizing it, so it can be improved.

Wordpress, il tuo blog in un click

Reviewed a year ago

Consiglierei Wordpress a tutti, anche ai meno esperti perchè è davvero facile da usare e intuitivo. E' un modo semplice per creare il proprio blog e gestire anche pubblicità native all'interno del proprio sito web. Wordpress permette la creazione del proprio sito web anche attraverso un builder a blocchi che è davvero comodo da usare per gestire le diverse parti di una pagina web.

Pros

Wordpress è un CMS che permette la realizzazione e la pubblicazione di contenuti per il proprio blog e sito web. E' possibile arricchire gli articoli con immagini, video e codici html, ciò significa che Wordpress garantisce un alta personalizzazione dei contenuti in base alle proprie esigenze. Wordpress in generale permette la creazione di siti web, che vengono organizzati con una struttura a propria scelta, infatti è possibile creare menù, categorie, organizzare articoli in base ai tag. Con l'installazione dei diversi plug-in poi, è possibile gestire inserzioni adv, native o display, monitorare gli analytics del sito e persino creare e gestire un'e-commerce. L'installazione di Wordpress è semplice e anche la personalizzazione dei temi, i prezzi dei vari piani accessibili a tutti.

Cons

Per creare alcune sezioni del sito non sempre basta installare i plug-in perché è necessario intervenire nel codice back-end del sito, come per gestire certi tipi di e-commerce. Inoltre alcuni template che si scelgono per il sito non sono così semplici da gestire e personalizzare e l'assistenza per questi non è talvolta esaustiva anche perché spesso in inglese. Un'altra cosa svantaggiosa di Wordpress è il fatto che alcune azioni multiple su articoli non sono è possibili da effettuare, quindi bisogna farla manualmente.

Con Wordpress non chiederti SE è possibile farlo ma solo COME farlo! CMS al top!

Reviewed a year ago

Ho iniziato ad utilizzare Wordpress fin dalle primissime versioni, quando ancora era visto con una certa diffidenza. Il veloce sviluppo ha invece dimostrato le enormi potenzialità portandolo ad essere il metodo più diffuso per la realizzazione di siti e contenuti per il web. Non mi pentirò mai di tutte le ore che ho impiegato inizialmente per capirne il funzionamento. Adesso gestisco da semplici siti a e-commerce, sistemi di prenotazione online, piattaforme di ticket management e molto, molto altro.

Pros

Con Wordpress non ci sono limiti. Qualsiasi progetto mi venga proposto lo vedo già realizzato in Wordpress. Grazie ad una piattaforma ormai molto stabile, migliaia di plugin e temi (gratuiti e premium) realizzati da professionisti in tutto il mondo, l'unico limite è la conoscenza del prodotto stesso.

Cons

L'enorme diffusione di Wordpress obbliga ad essere molto accorti per quanto riguarda la sicurezza: sicuramente di vitale importanza sono i backup, da effettuare regolarmente, in modo da ripristinare le installazioni in caso di attacchi o crash dovuti ad aggiornamenti falliti del core o dei plugin. Altro aspetto è l'hosting che deve essere sempre proporzionato al progetto da realizzare in modo da non avere mai carenza di risorse hardware.

Wordpress Review From A Person Who Is Not Techie

Reviewed a year ago

Yes, here are some common business problems with using WordPress:Security vulnerabilitiesLimited scalabilityCompatibility issues with pluginsMaintenance and upgrade costsPerformance optimizationLimited design customization optionsHigh cost of professional supportInadequate SEO capabilitiesIt's important to weigh the pros and cons of using WordPress for your business and consider if it meets your needs...

Pros

In summary, WordPress is a free, open-source website-building platform that gives users complete control over their website and its files. It offers a wide range of plugins, themes, and customizations, making it easy to create unique, fast, and SEO-friendly websites. Additionally, many third-party tools have integrations available for WordPress, making it a versatile and convenient platform for website building.

Cons

In summary, being in charge of your WordPress website also means being responsible for its security, backups, and updates. Although these tasks can be automated, they still require attention. A lack of built-in drag-and-drop builder might pose a challenge for some beginners, but there are plugins available to assist with this. Basic knowledge of HTML and CSS can make using WordPress easier, but it's not necessary to learn it to use the platform. Most users can acquire these skills over time as they use WordPress.

WordPress is getting better, but they might need to be the best!

Reviewed a year ago

Great! Overall, I would still gladly recommend WordPress to my peers and friends. Despite discrepancies, WordPress is still worth recommending.

Pros

- The very thing that we like about WordPress is the fact that is is FREE and Open-Source. You cannot have one great deal with that.- It is easy to use. Gone are the days where you build your website from ground up - no any other options. If money is an issue, you do it yourself - learn to code. If money is not much of a concern - you hire designer and developer at once. WordPress just dust it off...

Cons

- As always, WordPress native builder, though free, is still ugly. Riddled with User Experience Issues. It's confusing where and when the widgets appear when you need to add them.- Some of the affiliated theme/plugins are just so darn expensive. Use WooCommerce and a very simple functionality is at a hundred bucks at least. You'd be better off learning how to code PHP.- Lacks User Experience sentiments. WordPress needs to employ user experience to there website. It is still not user friendly even though it is a CMS-Based website builder.
