Wordpress is the best and most popular CMS platforms.

2021-05-04

I am a web developer for 15 years, I master wordpress perfectly, I have installed, configured, updated and repaired several websites with wordpress

Pros

WordPress is free and open source, its installation and use is very easy no specific skills required, The design of Your Website is 100% responsive and customizable, you can extend the functionality of this platform by installing free plugins, the strong point of Wordpress is the optimization of its codes for a good referencing in search engines.

Cons

Following my experience, the disadvantages of Wordpress is the absence of important features that should be native, such as cache management, SEO management, advanced text editor ..., the lack of these features requires the installation of plugins which increases the loading time of the website.

Wordpress is best CMS for Bloggers and E-commerce webistes

2021-09-25

In general, we have less customizable requirements than other companies, therefore it's critical to understand your digital requirements before looking at content management systems.

Pros

In a short period of time, you may learn how to create new posts and pages, or you can just copy current material to act as a starting point for new content. Previewing material before it goes live is simple, and you can even plan it to be online on a certain day and at a specific time.

Cons

Additionally, there is no built-in SEO capability.

Incredible Product with room to grow

2018-09-10

Wordpress and I have a love hate relationship. I know it's better than all alternatives but we still struggle regularly.

Pros

I think Wordpress is an exceptional content management system and website shell for building your business brand or personal site.

Cons

I don't like how crucial working with 3rd parties is. I trust that Wordpress will do whatever they need to do to maintain product quality but I cannot say the same about some random developer or 3rd party who built a solution in their basement and decided they were bored and stopped keeping it up to date.

The perfect website builder for the developers.

2021-08-03

The tool might be difficult to use but it saves days worth of time when compared to building websites from scratch. The SEO management is amazing in this tool.

Pros

It have many pages and plugins that already have the necessary extensions and API, which can be added to the website directly.

Cons

The deployment of website is a bit confusing, and modifying the in-built templates is difficult for users not known to that programming language.

WordPress changed the way you build website

2021-08-20

Some things needs to be worked on for example a better way to integrate it with mobile apps.

Pros

the things that i like the most about WordPress are a plethora of free plugins a plethora of themes a large developmental community regular addition of newer features and security updates plugins can be written or themes can be modified to accommodate any missing feature

Cons

Wordpress has a major performance drag on sites and you need premium plugins most of the time to compensate for that wordpress lakes security or permission management for plugins and theme sections. a way should be added to control the level of access each plugin has. so that accidental infection of a plugin with malware or installation of a plugin with malware can be prevented or at least leakage of information can be prevented.

Expert website management

2020-09-10

However, if organizations are capable, spending on another similar tool that allows more drag and drop website editing would be the way to go.

Pros

One can add many features to a website or choose from many free themes for a great website look.

Cons

I purchased a theme once, and the theme developers did help with some issues, but otherwise, I have to rely on third party videos to explain some of the processes for doing the things we need in our organization (adding images, etc).

WordPress Review

2020-04-05

WordPress is the best compare to other Content Management systems.

Pros

We have been using WordPress as our core Content Management System for 2 years now.

Cons

WordPress does not come with a built-in drag and drop website builder and so you will take a lot of time testing a number of them before settling on one.

Perfect platform for establishing new website

2017-05-17

The current wordpress community is also big enough to attract viewers through blogging communities so your articles will have extra traffic from this channel. Paid template design also provide you a fast way to design without paying too much for a initial website design.

Pros

It is also SEO friendly so you don't have to be equipped with complex html knowledge to make your website being friendly to search engines.

Cons

Control over design template are still limited.

You won't be hard-pressed with WordPress.

2021-03-05

WordPress has helped with our SEO, it's very responsive, and has open source which has been a game-changer.

Pros

It's very easy to use and customizable. The change management for this platform was smoother than most platforms in the past.

Cons

Overall it's a great software, but like most softwares... updates can be burdensome, but nothing out of the norm. I would advise people to be diligent when updating their instance. You may notice slowness of speed if you're using a sophisticated theme, but nothing detrimental.

More than just another CMS

2018-07-20

Intuitive, Easy-to-Use, beautiful, customizable, and ready to go with free templates and plugins!

Pros

Third-party app (e.g., visit trackers, chatboxes) are easily integrable.

Cons

The default templates (and free templates available in the internet) look great.. but if you want to fully customize it to your liking, again... you'll need to know how to code in order to customize the web design.

Number 1 Content Management System

2019-01-09

For me it is main tool when creating websites for my own needs or for clients that need a website as fast as possible.

Pros

- The most popular CMS on the internet, what makes it easy to find information on modifications and tutorials. - Very flexible thanks to huge selection of plugins. - Great documentation both for users and developers. - Just install (or register on .com version) and you are ready for blogging. - A huge selection of free themes. - You can use it as framework for your app if you are a developer.

Cons

. - It is the most popular CMS so it is the most attacked CMS, remember to make it more secure with proper passwords and third-party security plugins.

The features are bundled across packages and it becomes difficult to handle the development.

Almost anyone can create and maintain a website

2020-03-11

WordPress will allow a moderately technically competent person to create a robust, manageable website. If you are very techie, you will be able to develop sites that would otherwise take you many hours of time, in a much more manageable timeframe.

Pros

Wordpress combines a well-designed user interface, with ease of use, and powerful features to create a website creation environment almost anyone can use.

Cons

Extensions and plug-in management can get tricky.

Great for Blogs and Simple Websites

2020-12-04

I also really like the fact that themes often take care of formatting changes for computer and mobile devices too.

Pros

WordPress itself is great for setting up your website, but the endless amount of plug-ins that can be installed really allow you to customize your website to your needs and style.

Cons

I know that there are third party tools for this, but there really should be a better built-in solution for this.
