Why do we write about WordPress and, more importantly, why do we do it ourselves ? Because the WordPress platform embodies all the best open source features we’ve talked about so much!
Anyone who can click on a browser icon and type www.google.com must be clear after a while that WordPress is a unit among blogging CMSs and provides a high degree of scalability, first-class spam protection and a high degree of customization, not only through modules and themes. However, let’s throw ourselves into concrete details.
Why is WordPress so interesting for web design?
Simplicity and emphasis on content make WordPress a different content management system, in several ways. People like solutions that take up a minimum of time and just work after installation. At WordPress, many users appreciate the fact that they don’t have to worry about anything but publishing their ideas.
- Facts and Figures – WordPress has found a place in the world and runs almost a quarter of all new websites. In addition, it is used on two-thirds of the site, which ranks among the million most visited and best known. WordPress has also chosen big names for their websites, such as Sony or CNN. WordPress is deployed on more than 50 million websites worldwide and has undergone 9 years of active development since 2003, giving you the confidence that you are using one of the best CMSs on the market.
- Ease of use – The user interface is clear enough and at the same time intuitive. The user can handle basic tasks with one click. In addition, everything is wrapped in a design with pleasant colors and you can choose from several variations.
- Adapted for writing and publishing – when writing content in WordPress, you feel like you’re doing it in a desktop editor. After publishing your text, the system will take care of displaying it in the most appropriate format and attracting readers who can be informed about new content by several channels (RSS and the like). WordPress is simply not just a website but a comprehensive publishing platform.
- Community support – WordPress is backed by a huge group of people who have jointly set a new trend for publishing information on the Internet. This community is a self-operating ecosystem that has gradually built around a successful and ever-growing content management system. Hundreds of contributors to the code and millions of users around the world talk about its quality and uniqueness.
