WordPress is a web Content Management System (CMS) created in 2004. Originally, it was primarily intended for the management of blog sites, but over the years, it’s become a fully functional system for the management of all sorts of websites, both personal and professional.
The biggest advantages of WordPress include:
Ease of Use
WordPress allows a site manager to create and modify web pages in a WYSIWYG environment. No longer do you need to contact a web designer any time you wish to change a couple of words.
With an hour or two of training from ionadas local, you’ll be able to create and edit pages like a web pro.
WordPress is open source using a license from the Free Software Foundation, and is available free of charge. This means that thousands of people have helped to develop and improve the software over the years, leading to amazing functionality and solid security.
Being open source has lead to innumerable people creating plugins for WordPress that extend it’s technical functionality. Many of these are free, and those that aren’t tend to be reasonably priced.
As a result, it’s likely that any functionality you wish to see in your website has already been developed, making its deployment even easier.
We even developed one plugin at ionadas local, History Collection.
