Wordpress is by far the best website platform and is highly customisable

Reviewed 2 months ago

I love Wordpress and there is no other platform like it!

Pros

I have used Wordpress for myself and my clients for the past 10 years. It's my preferred platform to build websites on due to the amount of customisation I can make, unlike other platforms such as Shopify which is a lot more difficult and costly. Wordpress feels like a platform where there are no limits to what you can do.

Cons

Woocommerce can be a bit expensive with plugins, but I can make customisations myself unlike Shopify. The dashboard could also do with a refresh to make it more friendly for clients to use. I have had a few websites that have been hacked over the years so I would like to see better security on Wordpress.

Wordpress for your website, ecommerce or what you need to do online

Reviewed 3 months ago

For example, when I have needed a system to only make material available to members, I have been able to build it quite easily with Wordpress. The company's website runs on Wordpress. E-commerce runs with Wordpress and WooCommerce. There are times when a special system works better than a Wordpress site, but the possibilities are great with Wordpress at a reasonable cost.

Pros

The biggest advantage of Wordpress is the open source software that has made it possible for you to find all kinds of building blocks that you could possibly need. You can build a complete e-commerce site for free and you can build a support site for your company without it costing you a penny. The possibilities with Wordpress are practically endless. Its prevalence also makes it easy to find qualified professional help at a reasonable cost.

Cons

The open, free system also means that you are expected to take care of everything yourself - or, hire the knowledge. So the threshold can be high for those who are not used to it, but help is available.

WordPress is best for professionals

Reviewed 2 months ago

I had a Wordpress website for 5 years, it was great until I added e-commerce during covid and realised the website I had build was showing off the e-commerce to the best of its ability.

Pros

That there was so much you could do with it, if your a web developer and it is low cost.

Cons

Because I am not a developer I had to add to many addons to get it to work my way, which you then have to constantly update. Bugs appeared and it started making the website slow. The backend system is really complicated and very clunky when adding woocommerce to it.

The simplest and best free web building software on the planet

Reviewed 2 months ago

Simple and effective for any type of website yo will ever need. Just ensure you have the right power at the server end, and the right support from your hosting or web design company, and you can't go wrong. It's cheap, easy and works great!

Pros

I love how intuitive WordPress has always been, from setting up a new site, even if you don't have your own server, you can do this vie the WordPress website, but even if you have to build your own database and upload all the files manually it's very simple, and there are so many resources online to help with literally anything you need, google the issue and you'll find web pages, tutorials and videos to help with anything. And most hosting companies offer 1-click installations and support with WordPress now too, which gives you the confidence to have a go, as whatever goes wrong can be fixed!

Cons

The new block editor in WordPress I'm actually not as happy with as the original editor, perhaps it's just familiarity as WordPress feels like an old friend as I've been using it for many years now. However in my opinion the biggest issue is 3rd party theme builders, bulking up their themes with large CSS, JS and lack of image compression, which has made WordPress feel bulkier and slower on some sites than it really is out of the box.

WordPress is the #1 Website building platform for a reason

Reviewed 2 months ago

Generally speaking my experiences are universally positive! As a platform placed midway between the "Creative" and "Technical" ends of the development spectrum, it suits me down to the ground. I appreciate that not everyone may agree (full-on Developers finding it a little restrictive and Mass-Market, with Creatives disliking pretty much all of the Page Builders available (save for those which are VISUAL - but then in turn perform badly and are very s-l-o-w to work with as a direct consequence / side-effect of their visual beauty...

Pros

Flexibility and scalability! WordPress truly does offer a website platform that really can grow with your own business operations over time - without needing to go back to the drawing board (with the exception of if a complete redesign is deemed necessary or the most cost-effective option). Even then, WordPress should remain high on your short-list if you find yourself surveying other options out there. It works!

Cons

Naturally given the sheer SIZE and popularity of the platform, there ARE hundreds or garbage plugins (and themes) out there - all of which should be avoided (but can sometimes be cleverly branded cutely - so as to give the impression the tool(s) is/are good.. when in fact they might damage your Site, or worse still break it completely. Plugin buyer/downloaders... BEWARE!! Also... I can't pass through...

WordPress Review

Reviewed 4 months ago
Pros

Open Source: The best thing about it is that it is an open source cms which is absolutely free. It was earlier made to be used only in blogs but it is used as a content management system in websites. You can also modify and distribute the codes and you will not have to worry about license fees. Low Cost: I agree that it takes up to 10000 ₹ to create a blog in WordPress, but according to one, it...

Cons

Security: The biggest disadvantage is that its security is weak. But those who are smart bloggers and secure their blog in some way. WordPress also supports vulnerable source themes and plugins. That's why many hackers take advantage of this. Low Database Handling Capacity: Many wordpress experts also believe that wordpress is not able to handle the database properly. This has also been reported many times and right now the WordPress team is focusing on optimizing it. Without Updated Plugin/Themes: I have seen many times that there are still many such plugins and themes in the wordpress directory which have not been updated for 2 years and thousands of people use it. You must be aware that by using such plugins and themes, the performance of the blog goes down.

Powerful and easy to use

Reviewed 4 months ago

Website builders like Visual Composer make developing UI-advanced websites a piece of cake, even for less tech savvy users. However adding custom CSS and html is also easy , and with Wordpress's modern page builder, the need for other page builders is becoming obsolete. We moved a number of sites over to Wordpress from Drupal, mainly because of the amount of support available through the Wordpress community and the huge amount of customisation potential. I use wordpress and its plugins for a variety of natures, including business directories (using custom post types), woocommerce stores, training courses (lifterLMS) and live train times (using functions.php to integrate with my own C# software).

Pros

The main advantage of Wordpress is its extensive support and customisation. There are so many themes and plugins that go beyond enhancing the website builder experience. Plugins such as Yoast make it easy to write SEO-friendly content, whilst Wordpress's shortcode functionality makes creating shortcodes a breeze

Cons

Wordpress offers little in the way of responding to low server resource issues. "Error establishing a database connection" is a frequent problem on low powered services, which a mysql restart or server reboot is quick to fix, but unless you host the website yourself, you're dependant on third parties to get you back up and running. Wp-admin access in a low memory, no database envioronment to reboot key services (like the openlitespeed web admin dashboard) would be a great idea.

Great Base Platform for Websites, Blogs, etc. Okay for Stores. Plan on using a lot of plug ins.

Overall I really like WordPress and plan on sticking with it. I self hosted through GreenGeeks for my own domain. My site is still under construction but should be live soon- if you wanted to get a site up quickly and aren't picky, you absolutely could do so at a low cost via WordPress. If you want something a little more custom, just plan on taking time to research and learn the offering and build. I think it's worth it.

Pros

If you have some basic website building skills, you will be able to figure out the ins and outs of Word Press pretty easily. If you have no idea about anything website building, there are resources available for you to learn, and you can start with a basic template theme/site. I happen to know some coding and also have experience building websites and intranets, so I found I leaned on plug ins and...

Cons

If you opt for a custom theme or plug ins, plan on poking around a lot to change colors, fonts and such. WordPress can be too simple for some, and on the flip side feel very complex for beginners to get used to.

The best and the most flexible

Reviewed a year ago

We use for several projects the combination of wordpress + DIVI + cache + protection plugin. With this we have a standardized and easy structure to create websites for clients in hours instead of weeks. Without wordpress you need to program or use an expensive tool that generates an exportable website. There are other CMS, but wordpress is more convenient and easier to find solutions to problems. Although it's not that fast, it's still much faster than other options on the market.

Pros

As you use it in various jobs, it becomes familiar. It has plugins for everything you can imagine. You can create your own plugins or mix them with separate pages in php/html. It has a lot of free stuff or "lite". Using themes like DIVI you can create websites of all types in hours instead of weeks. Only program when you really need it. Almost every time updates are fine, you update without fear.

Cons

I miss there being more performance. As it comes with many built-in things, you pay for the functions with slowness. Also bad is the tendency to replace stable php for pages and functions in RIA with javascript.

Wordpress, the easiest and cheapest gateway to creating your own website

Reviewed a year ago

Wordpress is a wonderful piece of free software that allows for any person to create a website for their project, business, or personal endeavor. With endless integrations and the ability to build out custom plugins and themes, you never need to worry about growing out of Wordpress. With the CMS holding the majority share of the internet, it is a tried and true method for anyone looking to get away from a high monthly fee service, like Wix or Squarespace. After more than 10 years of personal and business use, I am confident that Wordpress can do anything that anyone would want from a website, plus a little more.

Pros

Wordpress is endlessly customizable, serving as more than just a tool to put a template on. You are able to create your own themes, or find one that you like online. If something isn't working how you want, look and you will likely find a solution that someone else was having. Besides just being customizable and dependable, Wordpress is trusted by the whole world. Any issues you might run into, someone else has definitely had and posted about online already. If not, you can be that person to find the solution!

Cons

The main issues with Wordpress is that it is not a centrally hosted service. If you encounter problems, it is likely up to you or the person you hired to create the site to troubleshoot. This is the price you pay for a free service, but is a small one, in my opinion.

WordPress improved our web presence with little effort

Reviewed a year ago

We love WordPress. In one of our companies, a staff member took upon them to set up their website to save on cost. Web development companies are expensive. I set up WordPress for them. They were able to set up a website and go live within days at a fraction of the cost they would have otherwise paid to marketing agencies. SEO has worked great. Forms have worked well. We have enjoyed moving all of our sites to WordPress.

Pros

WordPress is easy! Within 20 minutes, we had our website up and running. With a 30 minute training session, staff was able to post blogs, create pages, create menus and set up forms. Prior to WordPress, setting up a website was a project. With WordPress, website management is a breeze.

Cons

When automatic updates break something, it's not easy to debug. For those users who don't host WordPress themselves, this would be less of an issue. We host WordPress sites ourselves and enable automated updates. Once in a while updates break our site and we have to debug it by logging on to our servers.

The Original Low-Code Revolution

Reviewed a year ago

I rely on Wordpress daily. As a company, we deploy it to millions of served pages every month. You cannot get higher praise from enterprise users than reliability.

Pros

Wordpress was the original low-code revolution catalyst. People seem to forget that before Wordpress came around, you had to write pages by hand or use something like Dreamweaver to develop a site. I remember that, because I used to do it. Along came Wordpress and it totally democratized web development. We use it every day on industrial scales, serving millions of pageviews a month. Wordpress is robust, well supported and endlessly expandable.

Cons

Wordpress is a bit fragmented in its features, so your mileage may vary with certain plugins and themes. Also, over time, Wordpress has gotten slower and slower, and it's extremely prone to slowdowns when using more than 5 or 7 plugins. However, recent updates to the Wordpress core code as well as developments since PHP moved from version 5 to 7, have allowed it to remain competitive.

Pros

I built a website using WordPress although, it wasn’t easy for me at the very start, I enjoy my experience using this site builder, and here are my honest reviews. Best Content Management System (CMS ) with great features and massive plugins available. -Available in free and premium versions with affordable pricing plans. Pricing plans are available on both a monthly and annual basis with bulky discounts...

Cons

-The admin dashboard can be tedious to handle times. There are lots of features that get me to confuse sometimes. -It can be difficult for beginners to use. The way different actions, sections, and partitions are created with WordPress is not easy to understand. -It’s just a tool and not intended to give the best SEO experience-Apart from SEO plugins it has, It’s advised to also use other second-party SEO tools for more traffic. -No backup insurance. You are the one to make sure your site is well back up. -This tool was not designed for high performance, meaning if you saturate your website with a lot of plugins, it might experience constant crashes, slow data loadings and will decrease your chances of ranking on google.

Build your Business on WordPress for Scalability and Infinite Customization for Little Overhead

It's been incredible: we've run multiple businesses on WordPress that are highly profitable with low overhead.

Pros

The number of customizations that are possible at ridiculously low pricing is unlike any other platform out there. You can make WordPress into literally anything you want: directory site, calendar system, membership site, course creator site, basic SAAS, and much more.

Cons

The backend interface needs to be updated - feels out of date. Also, getting started for many users is complicated and there are so many options it can feel overwhelming. Also, it's difficult to know which vendor tools (plugins) are best in class.

I could not have my current side business without wordpress - as it makes it more efficent and cost effective for me to spin up and host custom wordpress websites for people that dont want to spend £££££ on custom designed stattic websites.

Pros

It's an open platform and completely free for new entrants - coming from the old world of creating websites it absolutely revolutionised the way we create and design websites. the sheer amount of integrated plugins means you can do absolutely anything you can dream off.

Cons

It can be very difficult for new users to pickup - and from an end user perspective - ongoing management of the solution is difficult to maintain without a custom front end CMS - there are also a lot of threats due to the sheer number of 3rd party plugins that integrate to wordpress.

"The best free CMS"

Reviewed 2 years ago

When I started creating my own online store and saved a lot of time and money using WordPress, it helped me a lot. Overall, learning WordPress is very beneficial because it allows me to maximize my project in the best version. There are many plugins that can meet your preferences. After all, you don't need to spend a lot of energy to create and manage a website, it doesn't take long to learn the basics and everything goes well. I would like to thank the developer team for this excellent package. Really, I highly recommend this CMS.

Pros

With a maximum of two weeks of learning, you can create dynamic web pages for almost anyone. Powerful plugins/themes and forum support make this product superior to any other product. I've never encountered a problem that can't be understood in various forums and FAQs on the Internet. There are several features and templates to guide you in choosing the theme you wish to continue with. In addition to the templates, if you switch from one template to another, it will automatically transfer your content from one design to another, so you don't have to re-enter all the information.

Cons

Although there are hundreds of templates and customizations to choose from, some are free, but to extend customizations or unlock other features, there is a cost. Most of the technical problems do not come directly from Wordpress itself, but from its theme or plug-in development partners. If one of the plug-ins you rely on is obsolete and abandoned by the designer, you may be out of luck and have to rush to find a new solution when a problem occurs. I hope revisions are simpler and incremental backups are simpler too. Every customization or theme has a cost associated with it; however, these costs are usually negligible for what you get.

Industry Standard for Web Design

Reviewed 2 years ago

I have used Wordpress for several different websites. We currently use it within our organization and I use it for my wife's business and also for our volunteer fire departments website. Again it is simplistic and for those less knowledgable about web design the platform allows for the user to walk through the design process with simplistic instructions.

Pros

I have been using Wordpress for the last several years. I often recommend this platform over others to colleagues and friends as it is the most widely used platform for web design available. It is simplistic and easy to walk through for those who are less than knowledgeable about web design while allowing full customization for those who are very knowledgeable. There are hundreds of pre-designed templates that you can utilize in your design. On top of the templates if you switch from one template to another it automatically carries your content from one design to another so you do not have to input all the information in again.

Cons

While there are hundreds of templates and customizations to choose from and some are free, in order to expand the customization or unlock other features there is a cost for doing so. Every customization or theme has a cost association to it; however, those costs are often negligent for what you are getting.

Excellent way to get your small to medium sized business online

Reviewed 2 years ago

I love working with Wordpress and have made a business around it. My own websites are built on Wordpress and create them for my clients. My team can go in and make most of the necessary updates and it is easy to train people on how to use it.

Pros

By creating sites with Wordpress, you can easily keep your website up to date with fresh new content. Almost any functionality you need can be delivered via a plugin. Chances are someone else needed the same thing and has come up with a good solution, so searching the vast community will lead you the best solution for your own (or your client's) business. If it hasn't been done before, there are plenty of skilled developers that can create a plugin for you at a fraction of the cost of building a custom html site from nothing. That said, you can literally choose a premade theme and have a decent site launched in a day if you were so inclined (and prepared with content).

Cons

Most of the cons are not due to Wordpress itself, but the theme or plugin developers. If a theme or plugin that you rely gets outdated and abandoned by the developer, you may be out of luck and have to scurry to find a new solution when things go wrong. I wish revisions were simpler, as well as incremental backups.

WordPress has really made my life easier. I've personally evolved with the system over time and I don't intend to stop going with the evolution as time goes by. I say thank you to the Automattic Team for this wonderful package. Truly, the best things in life are for free.

Pros

It's been really rewarding. Not to talk of the vast assortment of plugins that extends the functionality of the CMS. Sincerely, WordPress is really worth every penny, if sold.

Wordpress best C.M.S for developing website faster and easily

Reviewed 2 years ago

First of all it has enabled design and otherwise develop websites faster and easily. It has enabled me create blogs easily for websites rather using the related software's. It has enabled me download themes and use them on different websites. It saves on time since it doesn't require much coding.

Pros

First of all it is popular in todays world since it comes with different themes and plugins. This makes it easier when developing a website thus more people use it rather than the related ones. This WordPress is a free and open source, all you need to have is a WordPress folder and local development servers that is WAMP, MAMP or even XAMPP on your machine. Another thing I like about this software is...

Cons

First what I dislike about this software is security. Since the software is free, anyone can get it even access some critical information from your page especially since it relies on plugins and themes that have been developed by various people. WordPress somewhere is expensive. Though there are different themes and plugins that are free, you can completely attract your visitors since they don't have the magnificent features that they need thus you complete more advanced and professional and plugins and themes. Lastly, though we can customize WordPress website, it requires some coding thus you have the knowledge on the required field.

WordPress and Encouraging Words

Reviewed 2 years ago

I was using an old website and switched over to WordPress. Overall, the customer service experience was ideal. They treated me with respect and did not awkwardly tell me that any question I may have asked was stupid. They emailed multiple times quite efficiently and helped me along the way. It has allowed for my blog to become decently popular and people seem to enjoy what I tend to ramble about. The different templates have worked out well dependent on what topic I am working through.

Pros

The thing I liked the most about WordPress is that it is easy to use when beginning your own blog. Many, don't believe that their blogs will become popular. It can be a place where you rant and maybe one or two people will stumble across your words on the online page, and maybe or maybe not be encouraged. One of the biggest things that is liked the most is that it is workable for both beginners and...

Cons

There are very few cons when it comes to WordPress. The only negative for other business owners would be that it does not allow for many other builds. This seems to be directly targeted for writing and creating blogs. It also took a few minutes for me to become accustomed to it when switching from another product. It is crucial that you know some coding in order to be able to use the application properly. The negative to this is that if you do not know much about coding, it will take a while to navigate through most of the application.

The first step across your independence

Reviewed 2 years ago

With the basic account, you don t have a big choise about the graphic design, but just a fixed set that you can increase updating your profile. Check panel is very basic, few options plus, you can choose themes between the two software versions; free themes for Wordpress.org and pay per use for the other, on Themeforest.com

Pros

Right. Meeting Wordpress in the far 2012 was not love at first sight. Indeed, i remind a software downloading on a Macintosh computer , and that period i was training to use IOS server, coming from many years by Android. So it was a difficult meeting, as well i was discovering Wordpress, plus a New pc. What i can say is that it s a very easy to download package. Very low price and many many different activities to discover day by day. Using WordPress you can approach as you are painting on a white paper and let your creativity comes out. There are some Differences you can find between the two versions of this software (free or pay per use). First one is you need an hosting provider to rate a subscription and get in this way many and many plus advantages. No needed for the itgerccerdiin.

Cons

As i said, price is cheap for what you can learn to do. Plus, you can still use WordPress as a training before switch to a better software, yes, it s easy to use WordPress as a springboard , even if you are not so confident with this kind of activities. What i was looking for, was a kind of school to start an immersion in the social media world, but in autonomy mood. I thought it was the time to learn How to do by my own , to manage the informations and the pictures i would like to show, and to be honest, my first WordPress account was not a Professional, but a private account Created only to improve my knowledge.
