Pros: For website hosting and building, Wordpress is not the easiest tool out there. For a more sophisticated marketing team, it's exactly what we need. It's great for HTML and websites with deep sitemaps.

Cons: The dashboard and navigation on the backend is not very user-friendly or efficient. Lots of unnecessary clicks.

Probably the best blogging experience I've had. But the customization options could be better.

Pros: Wordpress is fast and easy to get up and running. It's helpful to start with a free version to see if you like the overall functionality and to get used to it, in my opinion.

Cons: Although the free version has plenty of features, it doesn't allow for the kind of customization I'd hope for. Themes are very limited, even down to the color palettes.

Wordpress is an amazing platform to build a website.

Pros: The thing I like the most is the ease of editing and adding information. It is quick and painless, and saves time.

Cons: Our blog feed on the website is often spammed. This is annoying to have to deal with. I wish there was a way to block those out.

Pros: The price is/was the greatest pro, we switched over to WordPress from shopfiy after we realized how much money were were paying shopify a year vs what wordress charges.
I wish i found out about wordpress a long time ago, its great for beginners, or even people who dont want to sell anything, its an amazing blog/sharing cms tool. Since we have started using wordpress we have been able to expand our online presence, ie. buying /hosting more URLS

Cons: the only cons' are its a bit difficult to learn how to use, since we were used to another CMS. but we got/are getting the hang of it as we use it more.

Pros: It is easy to use compared to the previous CMS - Drupal. There should be more functionalities that I have not tested out because the development is done by our website agency.

Cons: We use Ninja Form for the web form but the countries are spelled out too long. For example, Britain is United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland. While it must be an official name, they should list it in a common way.

Overall: Free and less stressful compared to the previous CMS

Pros: Building professional websites and blogs are made free easy with a simple versatile content management system. Its like putting in the cheat code in a game, wordpress allow a novice to to build clean responsive websites and allow experts go even further as it is open source. Wordpress users are allowed a vast mount of themes and widgets to help facilitate an easy web development or one may modify and/or create their own. Managing the website from the backend is easy and the support community is excellent.

Cons: I have been using wordpress for quite a while and the only con I can think of is that their is a little learning curve, one will need to invest some time to get started.

Pros: I have used WordPress for 5 years now. While there is a learning curve to web design and management, Wordpress makes the learning as painless as possible. With excellent tutorials and helpful information, I have been able to teach myself how to use WordPress and design websites that I think are great looking, with no formal tech training. If you want a legitimate website that you own and operate, WordPress is where you end up. I love the flexibility of theme choices and the affordability. For someone just starting out, you don't have to spend a fortune. You can choose to invest in more customizable themes and plugins as you gain experience in using WordPress. I love WordPress.

Cons: It can be intimidating going into a project for the first time. Take a deep breath and go slow and read the tutorials and you will have a fully functional website in no time.

Pros: Wordpress is unquestionably versatile and powerful. It supports anything you want your website to do, and has so many extra plug ins that work in the background to optimize as well.

Cons: It may have been silly of me to think I was prepared for Wordpress coming off Dreamweaver knowledge, but it was completely daunting from a UI standpoint. Customer service wasn't very helpfully, so I resorted to outside tutorials. Great platform either way.

Pros: The number of things that you can do with Wordpress is astounding. It's so much more than just a blogging tool, as it has fully functioning website tools and even e-commerce. There really is nothing better if you know how to use it.

Cons: Beginners will have a hard time with Wordpress as its platform can be daunting and the plug ins can be a little difficult to implement accurately. Support is very helpful for these things though.

Pros: I recommend this platform for everyone who wants to launch their own blog or website on their own. I was amazed at the ease of installation and configuration of the system. When I first got acquainted with this CMS, in two days I had a very decent site.

Cons: In free versions of templates there is advertising, so that it takes the skills of the programmer to remove it. The site starts to "brake" from 100 simultaneous visitors. After the CMS version is updated, the theme settings are flown.

Pros: Wordpress can handle any type of website you need, both from a design standpoint and in the back end. It is effective with portfolio sites, businesses, ecommerce, blogs, etc. With such a large base of users, there are tons of features and functionalities that can be added and easily utilized as a result of so many others building add-ons.

Cons: There is a learning curve, but that's to be expected. More free template options would be nice, but if you care about your site, it's worth finding a premium template anyway.

Pros: Wordpress is a great Content Management System for building websites. It is easy to install and there are a lot of tutorials available to get you started. The Wordpress community also boasts a large number of themes (both free and paid) and one can find a number of plugins for features you may want. You can use Wordpress to build practically any type of website.

Cons: Wordpress is great for building various kinds of websites, but it may not be the suitable choice for building robust web applications.

Pros: The interface is intuitive, and it's easy to work without programming skills. High speed of work and a low need for resources. For the engine developed a huge number of free plug-ins and templates for any needs.

Cons: Without the programming skills, the template can't be changed practically and does not implement a complex project. It's also difficult for me to keep track of constant updates. Slightly hangs the site with a large stream of visitors.

Pros: I'm working with CMS WordPress for 10 years, first I experienced it as an administrator (I wrote articles on other people's sites, edited pages, planned and did mailings), and then already as a developer. And I always wonder how functional the system is, well thought out and simple and use.

Cons: In the settings in the administrative panel there are not all the functions that I would like to see on a modern blog or website, so you have to search or create individual plug-ins yourself.

Pros: This CMS can be the best option if you need an easily administered web site. The use of this system provides a wide, but at the same time simple functionality. WordPress is ideal for news sites or blogs, but, as we wrote, it is also used for other types of sites.

Cons: The system has so many features, so the main problem is how to use all of its features right? This CMS will work much better if you customize the settings correctly;
If you are new, you may encounter some problems during installation.

Pros: WordPress is very easy and intuitive to use, there really isn't another competitor that compares though many have tried and failed. It's a good solution for quick, easy, and sharp looking websites and not just blogs.

Cons: Plugins sometimes introduce security vulnerabilities and have to always be kept up to date to avoid this. WordPress sites are apparently relatively easy to hack based on what I've read.

Anyone can be website savvy with WordPress.

Pros: Designing and updating a website is as easy as the click of a button. Lots of template options. Very easy to add text, images, links, etc. They corrected a prior default setting to animate all images!

Cons: They make updates regularly, which should be a good thing, BUT when these updates affect live content the results can be unfortunate. When they make updates they are not just improving features or usability, but they move the menus and tools, making it quite a pain to find something you've been using.

Pros: Countless designs and themes are available from tons of different sources. Many developers offer free versions of themes and demo websites to best envision what your final product could potentially look like. Many themes include tutorials that teach you how to locate various features of the theme and begin to customize your website. Additionally, WP empowers you with the ability to add all types of plugins and additional features. Once I redesigned my website using a WP theme I liked (I originally used Wix), I felt my website was much more professional in both appearance and performance.

Cons: If you are not a web designer/developer and considering your first website, WordPress may be very intimidating or even beyond complex depending on your general skill-level with technology. If you are patient and willing to learn, you will feel the reward of your efforts. Consider researching the process prior to diving right in. The website WPBeginner.com was really helpful for me as well as the tutorial resources from my theme's developer.

Pros: This CMS was by no means the first one, which I used as an engine for the sites being developed, but starting to use it the need for other disappeared. The Wordpress system has huge capabilities, allows you to create many different and functional resources, almost unlimited.

Cons: On Wordpress you can put a lot of plug-ins, but it's hard to understand them without knowing English. More extensive settings to perform without minimal programming skills are quite problematic.

Pros: Wordpress provides a great platform for absolutely anyone, skilled or not at creating a bloggers paradise. There are so many options to fit anyone's taste. You'll never run out of design ideas with Wordpress.

Cons: Be prepared to learn as you go. While Wordpress provides so many options, it does cause it to not be as user friendly as one would like. But if you have the time, it's well worth it.

Pros: * Really easy to use CMS
* Plenty of support given it's so popular around the world, so there are plenty of providers, themes and support
* It's really affordable

Cons: * WordPress isn't as fast as other systems, because of the third party plugins that are associated with most sites.
* It's a higher risk (unless you have a custom build) relying on multiple third party providers, like the theme provider and 4 plugin providers - that's 5 potential points of failure.

Pros: You can do SO much with this software. Our company uses it to host our website and blog. Super easy to add photos, create additional pages, and really customize it to what you need. They offer tons of standard designs that can be customized to suit your needs.

Cons: If you're not html/website savvy this site can be a bit difficult to figure out. I don't have formal training in creating websites so it's been a learning process for me over the years. Once I find what I'm looking for I can usually figure out how to use a feature without having to contact our website designer.

A must have tool for website creation & management. Not suitable for everything, but easy for a lot!

Pros: A very quick way to launch a website for free with a great variety of themes to choose from, many of which set the standard for contemporary design (or at least, follow the standard, if not setting it) including early adoption of responsive design.

Plugins can do what a custom developer would take weeks to learn - they draw on the collective knowledge of the plugin developers, and that can be a real boon.

Cons: The world's most popular open source website platform is prone to exploits and requires daily patching for security. We have seen sites hacked, and then the owner contacted by Federal Police because of harbouring terrorist propaganda (unknowingly on their hacked website). We have to insist on the use of automated updates for the safety of our clients (and ourselves).

While specific themes make it easier (or harder) the average person, even a savvy business person, can find it difficult to manage their site with WordPress, let alone set it up, or get specific and detailed about the presentation of it.

There's not much you can't do with WordPress, but it is limited by the quality of the plugins, and I don't think there's enough vetting and rating of the quality of plugins. One has been installed without the admin's permission and penetration software hidden in it... it's hard to tell who or what went wrong, but plugin integrity would be a first good step.

Speed can be an issue depending on which theme you select, and while there's a myriad of caching plugins, they often introduce their own problems. Hopefully Google's recent announcement of assistance to WordPress engineers will speed things up.

Such a great options for experienced developers or people with no experience!

Pros: I like how versatile Wordpress is. I am a former project manager in a development realm and I have learned how to use and apply Wordpress in so many ways. I use it for all of my side projects and it allows for simple and robust projects to turn out wonderfully.

Cons: I think a con for many may be that even though the system is easy to use you may have to do some research to understand how to use it well.

Pros: With the Wordpress templates, I have the ability to make my web-sites appear professionally built. Its integration with other services (i.e., email opt-in forms, sign-ups, etc...) all my websites to build the business and keep us moving forward.

Cons: While the templates provide some pre-established structure for building a website, the learning curve can be a bit tricky in the beginning. Thankfully, there are numerous YouTube video that act as a tutorial!

Overall: Wordpress allows the amateur web-designer to look like the professional. The templates allows the site manager to customize the look and feel of any site.

Cons: It takes time to learn the software. I had a little bit of web design experience prior, which helped, but it was still a bit difficult to matter. Once you get your hands dirty with it, the process makes a lot more sense and eventually any other way will seem confusing.

Pros: There's a surprising amount of things you can do with WordPress. I wouldn't want to have to build a website without it.
So many plug ins to get exactly what you need, or works with almost whatever outside service you're using.
Supports everything from blogs to e-commerce.

Cons: It can be a little daunting to attempt to learn fresh, but once you're over the curve it is fulfilling to make websites. At times WordPress sites can be slow.

Pros: WordPress is perfect for people engaged in Web development and for people who do not have specialized IT education. It's really easy to create a simple website, even if you have no experience. Convenient admin panel, very easy to use, free, lots of beautiful and high-quality templates and themes (paid option), timely updates.

Cons: Free themes-monotonous. Really high-quality plugins are quite few. Good for small blogs and websites, but not suitable for large projects.

Cons: Practice shows that the bandwidth of sites created on WordPress is relatively low. Therefore, if you are planning to create a large project, it makes sense to choose another CMS.

Pros: The first and most significant plus (at least for me) is the free of this engine. Wordpress is free, and many templates are also free. It is also worth noting the convenience of this system and the simplicity. In this engine, even the most ordinary PC user, who has no idea about creating websites, will figure it out.

Cons: Sometimes sites created on WordPress, work slowly. So if you are planning a large influx of visitors or a super-profitable business, it is worthwhile to consider other options for CMS.

Pros: You can create a basic website quickly.
It has 1 trillion plugins that does about everything and anything you need, 10 times over
A lot of people use it and so there are a lot of services and consultants that can provide help

Cons: The 1 trillion plugins is ridiculous. Way too many and not sure which ones are really good even with the ratings. Then don't get me started on compatibility and updates. It seems that if there are updates there is always a danger of it breaking something else because nothing is tested together. I guess that is OpenSource for you. But that makes it a pain for the small user that just wants to get something setup and use it and count on it to be stable. Also warning messages all the time of some problem. If you want to do something sophisticated it's not that easy because again you don't know what works with what and there's a good chance one thing will break another.

Overall: We have our site up and running now...once we got external help. It seems to pretty much work although everytime there is a plug in update, I have no idea if it will blow everything up. So I need to test on a staging box and then promote or update production. Imagine if you had to do this everytime Microsoft updated one of their programs. Nightmare.

Seems like a great platform for an enhanced blog, but with problems.

Pros: When I first started my personal blog I had zero experience with the tool and I was determined I will do it on my own. Lucky with Wordpress you do not need previous experience. It is simple to use, a drag and drop type of tool. For some more technical details you will need help, but for a basic beginner use, it does the job. So far I use it 3 years and I am very much happy with it.

Cons: In general, I can't say there are some major problems. If you choose right plugins than you're good. However, a navigation on the menu side is a bit tricky in the beginning.

Overall: Helped me a lot to start my blog without having to pay someone else to do it for me.

There is a plugin for just about any need or requirement, and best of all, it is all free or mostly free. The software always gets updated and the community has grown into the millions. Google also loves WordPress because it is so SEO friendly.

Cons: Not very secure and if a hacker really wants to hack a WordPress site, then they can often do so. The underlying architecture is not really bullet proof secure.

Overall: WordPress is my bread and butter and it literally earns me my income. It powers most of my web properties and I am very grateful to Matt Mullenwag for creating WordPress.

Pros: I like that all you need for a basic project is already included. Easy to install, easy to operate, a huge knowledge base. Moreover, it is the most flexible CMS, you can add as many functionality for your website as you wish.

Cons: It is open source. There are always some security risks, especially when istalling plugins. Plugins are good for those who don't know coding, but they cause security issues though.

Overall: I make websites faster than I did using PHP only

If you can figure out how to use it, your website will be awesome!

Pros: They offer several plug-ins that allow you to take your website to the next level. Everything is extremely customizable and once you have a good understanding of how it works and how to navigate, its fairly easy to use.

Cons: Lack of a support team. A lot of googling needs to be done to address specific questions. Very difficult interface if you've had no training. A couple bugs as well, and it's again, hard to reach a support person to fix the bugs.

Pros: I like that there is a free version. I like that you can have a blog and a website. I like the many different layouts.

Cons: I find the blog (even the free version) very hard to set up. Maybe I just dont get it, but its confusing and convoluted. I dont like that so many different windows open up every time you are working on the blog and choose different options.

Pros: What I like most about this software is how easy it is to use. I knew very little about creating a website before doing so with WordPress. This software made it easy to create the perfect website for my small business. Now that the website is live/complete, WordPress makes it so simple to edit as well.

Cons: What I like least about WordPress is how the save button is often in different places while editing. I learned early on to be very careful about finding the save button before exiting the page in order to have all my work saved.

Pros: Wordpress is the most commonly used blog/CMS software you can find. And there's a reason for that. It offers a huge (!) array of functionality. It does practically anything you want it to, does it well, and does it FAST. If you're running a site that functions off of content over all, you really cannot do better than Wordpress. It's like gaining fluency in a language everyone is speaking.

Cons: If you're a small scale or inexperienced user, it's definitely going to have a learning curve. Wordpress is not the best for someone just starting a blog and lacking any CMS or design experience--for that, Wix is likely a much better option!

Cons: There are times where WordPress blogs can start to look alike since WordPress is so popular; however, sites can be unique with a little effort.

Overall: WordPress is the most straightforward and cleanest blogging platform.

Pros: The framework is one of the most powerful free CMS options out there. It has a huge database of plugins and is regularly updated. With a basic knowledge of PHP and CSS, you can customize Wordpress to any need. The user interface is very easy to use even for novices and technophobes. We can't praise it enough.

Cons: With the popularity of Wordpress comes unwanted attention from hackers. Systems such as Cloudflare and Wordfence are a must if you use Wordpress otherwise it's just a matter of time before you get hacked.

Pros: When I first started blogging 7 years ago, I did a lot of research on what was the best to use and WordPress was highly recommended by many. And they were right. The features and functionality of it all is great.

Cons: I do have some background knowledge of technology and website design so I found it pretty simple to set up. But I could maybe see beginners having a tougher time getting things set up.

Pros: The functionality of being able to see your site as it will look live before you hit publish is the single most helpful piece of this software. Without it, I would have published many scrambled entries for both business and personal uses.

Cons: In the editing and publishing side of the program, the specific groups and subgroups are blank, so it is often like putting a puzzle together.

I've used WordPress for a little over a year and it's been pretty great so far.

Pros: It was easy to jump right in! I started a personal blog and wasn't sure how to really get my stuff out there, but then I joined WP and they made it so easy to write, edit, and publish. And the link to Twitter and Facebook made it even easier to share with friends/family.

Cons: It was a little daunting at first trying to remember what led to what and how to get certain things to work, so a little more step-by-step would've been nice.

Offers great flexibility through a myriad of plugins available - allowing a customized look.

Pros: The main thing I like about Wordpress as the platform for my website is its versatility. Not only are there many different themes available to give the site a more customized look, but plugins are almost endless. Whether you want a very simple - information only website - or plan to incorporate online booking for events, rentals, lessons, or have a large online retail presence, there are plugins that can customize the experience.

Cons: As Wordpress has grown, it is less intuitive than it used to be. I'm not a web designer, but have done the page updates, product insertions, calendar updates, etc. myself. As a small business owner, I don't have the ability to have a 'Web department' to stay on top of the latest nor do I have the training for the 'language' used on the back end of web development.

Overall: The ability to build a website that can be changed and added to over time. With various plugins available, the site can do just about anything - from Calendars, to online booking, to online retailing. It also is compatible with many external booking systems - which offers choice to the user.

Best intro product on the market.

Pros: This is a great foundation if you are starting your own business which allows you to customize your site to your own preference. There are many different templates to choose from.

Cons: Can be a little technical if you are not comfortable with back end coding if you need certain things done, or, navigating the setup menus can be a challenge.

Overall: I have a great website, but it has taken a lot of work to get to this point. I wonder if it would have been easier using another platform?
