WordPress originated as a simple blogging system but has since grown to become a capable Content Management System (CMS) platform with the ability to bolt on plugins to provide additional functionality. WordPress, as with any other fully-fledged CMS, allows you to control your own content and manage your website.
One of the strengths of WordPress is it enables the development of low cost/entry-level websites very quickly and easily, making it a popular choice for a first website or a startup business on a limited budget.
Why Choose WordPress?
WordPress is one of the most widely used Open Source CMS platforms available; according to reports, it now powers more than 74 million websites worldwide. WordPress is easy to use, user-friendly and as mentioned above, a low-cost development platform.
Managing pages and posts is simple with the well-designed administration interface. As with other leading CMS, such as Drupal, content is edited using a WYSIWYG (what you see is what you get) content editor, allowing you to simply and easily format and control the layout of your pages. These tools are of a similar nature to common word processing packages such as Microsoft Word.
The functionality of WordPress can be easily extended by adding Plugins. Plugins can provide functionality ranging from simple slideshows or menu enhancements through to ecommerce systems such as Woo Commerce.
