Very easy to use for first-timers, and you can gradually increase features as you get to know it

2018-08-01

I can update my posts anytime from my mobile, I get nice statistics about the readers I have.

Pros

I like the way I can control security / privacy, and how easy it is to manage posts and pages.

Cons

I'd like a customizable command ribbon (like on MS Office) for the most frequent actions I use on the management GUI.

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.

The industry leader = biggest target for script kiddies

2018-08-08

With a diligent admin and some third-party tools to improve the security of WordPress, a site can be successfully operated with less risk.

Pros

You can build a site in just a few minutes with off the shelf free templates, easy to use controls, and tons of add-ons.

Cons

With the power comes some trouble. Wordpress sites are targeted by script kiddies, bots, etc. They are high value targets because they have well documented vulnerabilities and a large install footprint. So, hacking many WordPress sites is simply a matter of scanning websites and running automated scripts to attack.

2018-07-23

Add content to web page easily implement improvements (newsletter, polls, forms, others) get statistics of visits.

In my case I have problems in some servers, delay the load or expire the certificate (SSL). They are small things but it is not software problem, I think it is more of the server.

Easy to use web publishing back end.

2017-11-10

Cloning a page lets me use a template-like approach. The dashboard lets me see recent activity.

Pros

You do not need to know HTML to publish a website! Third party plug ins are a godsend.

Cons

I wish WordPress was straight -out-of-the-box easy to use, but I had to watch online tutorials to get a handle on the structure and functionality of WordPress.

Versatile, Highly customizable and it's Free

2018-05-27

As a single web designer, developer, and IT technician, Wordpress has saved me time and money and allows me to build websites for myself or others quickly and easily. In today's time with cloud platform systems and faster domain name services, I am able to build a standard website and have it live to world in less than two hours time from the purchase of a new domain name.

Pros

The backend control panel is easy to use, packed with many features that allow the installation of third-party plugins, themes and other software integrations which enhances the capabilities of the website to tailor the website from a simple blog to a complex e-commerce system with automatic drop shipping or product aggregation.

Cons

The many plugins and third-party integrations could leave open vulnerabilities to bots, malware, and hackers.

Wordpress is reliable platform for website building

2018-09-17

Where I used to have to make changes using html and php code, now Wordpress has a Customizer and there are additional plugins that can be used for further refinements and customizability.

Pros

Because Wordpress links seamlessly with social media my client's blog content gets pushed automatically to their social media pages thereby saving them from having to repost everywhere.

Cons

While you can set up Wordpress to auto-update many of the Wordpress plugins are not set up that way and some routine maintenance is required once a website is up and running.

Well supported and easily customizable website builder.

2018-01-27

I recommend Wordpress over other website building platforms due to the ease of customizing each page and being able to build outside of pre-designed templates.

Pros

Integrates with just about any platform via a plugin or API. Wordpress is a must for incorporating into any digital marketing strategy.

Cons

Security is the biggest concern I have with Wordpress.

WordPress excellent CMS.

2018-06-18

Times per week allows us to get our name higher in the Google search engine without having to pay to do it.

Pros

WordPress also allows to locate the information in chronological order, which is beneficial for those who evaluate the content of the website, since it facilitates the audit.

Cons

There seems to be some problems with security. Sometimes I find it a bit difficult for new users to understand the interface, but I really think it's worth using this product.

WordPress is the best platform for writers, bloggers and photographers out there!

2018-09-10

It is easy to use, and the templates are wonderful!

Pros

You can customize it as how you want the design intertwine with the content of your write-up or your photo blog.

Cons

The free WordPress is easy to use but if you decide to upgrade it to the paid version, you need to think twice. Great design and functionalities entail a deep knowledge in web design and all - you really need to be techy!

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.

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. Media (photo / video) management is also neat and easy to manage.

Cons

Control over design template are still limited.

By using the robust catalog of templates, even a non-technical user can create a fully featured website.

Cons

Even though using templates to create basic websites is easy, customizing a site to achieve the distinction required by many businesses can be challenging and might require a skilled professional depending on the level of customization needed.
