Wordpress

Fast, simple, extensible blogging platform

Wordpress is one of the most widespread platforms currently in use online.  It's been estimated that over 25% of all websites online are running Wordpress.  Originally developed as a blogging platform, third party extensions have been developed to extend Wordpress into other applications.

Why we like it

  • Well-known and trusted 
  • Many third-party extensions available

Where it's best suited?

  • Personal and business blogs
  • Simple content-managed websites
  • Membership sites, community portals, etc.

Any downsides?

  • Heavily targeted by hackers
  • Third-party extensions are not always as secure as the core code
  • CMS system can be limited for non-blogging applications
