Pros: Wordpress is probably the best CMS to begin using as a novice, but also robust enough for semi-professionals. If you¿re managing a blog or a website, Wordpress is the place to start. You can build very robust and responsive websites with minimal knowledge of the product. Many resources are available to learn how to use certain aspects of Wordpress because of its wide-spread use in the blogosphere.

Cons: I wish Wordpress would integrate with Google Adsense to provide a more seamless experience for placing Google ads in one's blog/website. You can do this, but it works 3rd-party integrations, and in most cases, extra fees are applicable for full functionality.

Overall: I am able to quickly and easily create a new post or page, redesign the menu and layout, and add rich media content that is consumable on a wide range of devices.

I posted to my blog multiple times per week for three years and used WordPress the whole time.

Pros: The WordPress software allowed me to focus so much more on content than design or layout, it made blogging an absolutely pleasant experience. I would still be doing it if the subject matter hadn't become too expensive! My team and I were able to put together drafts for review, add multimedia content and express our individual styles all with easy feedback and control of content. As the managing editor, I even got to set the comment security allowing me to review comments before they were posted to maintain our professionalism and high content standards.

Cons: This will sound strange, but all of the options ended up being a drawback. If I had had the opportunity to run my blog as a full-time job instead of a hobby, I would have had the time to filter through all of the different layouts and tools available, but as it was, I just focused on my own content with the nagging feeling that we weren't getting everything out of the web site that would could.

Overall: This software allowed me to post a very professional blog for years without the struggle of being a web developer as well. WordPress was referred to me by a good friend who is a web developer because she knew how much I didn't know. This software allowed me to have a great looking site focused on content with all the tools a blog should have. As the managing editor, I knew we would eventually have the opportunity to expand to selling merch via WordPress as well, but we didn't get that far.

Pros: The amount of detail available. It gives you so many options to create finite details within a website, and design mobile friendly webpages. You won't ever run out of options when it comes to this program!

Cons: There are so many small details, and small options that selecting one can change the overall look of the webpages we were designing, so it was tough to choose what exact options we wanted as it could adversely affect the end product.

Pros: Without any doubt, the best thing about this software is the incredibly high amount of things that allow you to do. From a simple blog to a very professional web page with selling platform and other functionalities. Actually, it has so many things that, probably, you won't use them all. And moreover, although it is a bit complicated to learn to use it and start creating your webpage, it is easy enough for everyone to understand and use.

Cons: I know I said that it is easy enough but, still, you will need a lot of time. Sometimes you will find yourself completely lost if you are not an expert in informatics, or you are only a regular user without advanced capacities.

Overall: It is an interesting tool that all small enterprises wil find extremely useful. With this, anyone can create a web page to start commercializing and have a professional enough website with little effort and knowledge.

Pros: I love the design. It's beautiful! You can customize your site as much as you like. Some sites have limited customization, but Wordpress has no limits.

Cons: It's hard to use! You need a graphic designer backing you up, which may cost you. The backup tool doesn't always function correctly.

Overall: Beautiful design! Unlimited customization.

Pros: It's pretty easy to get set up and start blogging. The functions are user-friendly colors and backgrounds are nice. Publishing is easy as well

Cons: I'd like to be able to personalize it a bit more in an easier way maybe a little icon or something. Their templates are good but I'd like to have more freedom to set them with the colors I want, etc.

Pros: WordPress is easy to install (no technical knowledge required), gives good variety of templates to chose from, being open source has a huge list of plugins to chose from to add extra functionality, and is best for blog based websites which do not require complicated membership mechanism.
This software can also be used as a CMS ( content management system). If I have to update any document, I can simply update and upload and it reflects the update on the website.

Cons: It's easy to use and gives step by step instructions, but you still need to use other tools to have a completely functional website. It would have been great to have everything integrated already with WordPress. Further, the target audience for this software is novice to intermediate. For complicated websites, other tools are better.

Overall: I used it to create a blogging platform and integrated with my existing website. It was easily sharable on social platforms which made it very easy to build an audience and reply back to their feedback/comments.

Pros: I have the company blog hosted on wordpress. Access to lots of plugins that help you customise your website . Lots of widgets and the best blogging interface that I have used. There is a paid option as well if you want to host wordpress on your own domain. Lots of free templates and themes if you want to keep it low cost.

Cons: Can be quite to get set up and implement changes if you haven't done it before. Requires time investment up front if you want to get set up properly. I also find their support and help articles really unhelpful!

Pros: I'm user as well as Admin for Wordpress. I have used this for developing blogger website - Vreadsblog.com. I was complete unknown with webdeveloement and this tool has provided me lot of thing for beginner. Simple and most useful product if we want to build website within some days or if you are expert make it in some ours.

Cons: Little bit expensive for higher business plans and support is quite slow - in some situations you need to relay on support and end up with delay in resolution.

Pros: Wordpress is the standard for websites. You'll have plugins for everything and no shortage of people who can use the website in a matter of minutes.

Cons: Security can be a concern and if you aren't a small business, you'll want someone to customize some of the stock elements to take your site to the next level.

Pros: Wordpress is extremely versatile, we use it for a combination of data entry and information that Sales and Customer Service view and input for each call. It is easy to customize and update, and has been a great fit for us so far.

Cons: We have had a bit of trouble with Wordpress occasionally not being able to handle all the use it was getting. Although, this has not happened for several months, so it might have been resolved.

Pros: There are some great plugins that aren't available with other CMSs and that's usually the only reason I use it. That, and if the client specifically requests it. I'm a Joomla user, for sure.

Cons: I find myself getting so irritated with the fact that you need to install a plugin to accomplish almost everything with Wordpress! Also, you can't just choose to show a widget on a certain page in a certain spot very easily. Once you've used Joomla, this will feel so clunky.

Pros: It's easily customized, quickly learned, and user-friendly. If you're wanting to build a blog and you've never built anything before, WordPress should not be difficult.

Cons: There are lots of bugs and glitches that need to be worked out within the themes and sometimes customer support or Google will need to be consulted.

Pros: Wordpress was my first approach to web design and I highlighted several points:
1. Easy to use and intuitive interface
2. Free templates to install with a click that do all the work
3. Plugins exist everywhere and are indispensable for those who do not know about programming
4. Loading images and videos very simple
5. Very easy to install in a hosting

Cons: It is a bit heavy if you overload plugins
2. Sometimes it is difficult to find files to modify like css for example and it is necessary to resort to some FTP manager
3. Many free themes offer little chance of change, both in design and functionality

Pros: I really like how you can almost make Wordpress do whatever it is you need it to do. The number of free plugins mean that you can take a basic, reliable platform and customise it just the way you want to. I like everything about Wordpress, in fact it never stops amazing me and as yet, I haven't found anything that it can't do.

Overall: As a company that needs to share lots of information to staff and customers, it's important that we have a central resource that can deliver the right information to the right person. Our customers and partners can find whatever they need from our Wordpress site without having to ask any staff; this means we're freed up to carry on with the day to day running of the business.

You can do soooo much with WordPress!

Pros: WordPress is a relatively easy to use web building platform (CMS). And it's got so many plugins that you can pretty much build any kind of website you want. It's open source, so it's constantly improving and very inexpensive.

Cons: It can be overwhelming to find and select "themes" and "plugins" to build your site because there are so many. And since the plugins are built from myriad different sources, they can interact poorly with each other and make problems for your site. You need to be relatively savvy in programming to manage a WP site. If you don't have technical support, you should look for an easier platform.

I used the free version. It is a one note software but offers a lot for free.

Pros: It is easy to use and offers a solid platform with decent customization for no cost. Even getting a website name is easy to do. There are a few customizations which is more than enough if you are not willing to pay for it. It is also easy to bookmark your page and share the pages or posts.

Cons: Hard to get the site name you want. Not a personalized website name or domain name (for free version). Also, depending on the customization level you need you do not get a lot of features such as uploads of photos and videos or links.

Overall: More visibility online.

Pros: What I LOVE about Wordpress, is that there are so many Bloggers that use it. It makes my blog look professional and there are so many choices for themes, integrations and plug ins. It is very diverse and also integrates with my domain manager Godaddy.com

I also like that there is a community of users who an help with support, if not actual support from WP.

Cons: There is no ACTUAL support from Wordpress, but the good news is that there is a GLOBAL Community of other users who can help. I HATE when it crashes and I never know why. I have to disable all of my plug ins to figure things out.....a lot of trial and error.

Wordpress is still the king of blog and website building.

Pros: Flexible and endless options to build a unique, personalized site. Plug-ins are numerous and accommodates a lot of varying functions. Large community of users to rely on for recommendations and support.

Cons: It's a bit overwhelming to begin using it without prior experience. Security isn't actually all that great as it's a constant target for hackers galore. Expensive in comparison to other similar services but well.. you really get what you pay for eventually with time and experience.

Overall: I've built many websites over the years for personal use and for my clients and all I can say is that, even without coding experience, you can design the website you envision and get it online as fast as you can build it.

Pros: I like the drag and drop features that let me set up a website quickly, with a professional look without needing to know how to code. The wide reach of Wordpress means there are plenty of add ons from other developers to help you as long as you have the time to sort through them all.

Cons: I am sure the troubles I have had with Wordpress are due to my lack of time to really explore and get to know all the features. Some of the plugins will stop receiving updates, though these are third party developers, and it is frustrating when something stops receiving updates and sends me back to the drawing board for a part of my website design.

Overall: Able to have a stable web presence for our company at a reasonable cost.

Pros: My favorite attribute of WordPress is that if you've worked on one WP site, you can transfer that knowledge to another. You do not need to know HTML to publish a website! Third party plug ins are a godsend.

Cons: I wish WordPress was straight -out-of-the-box easy to use, but I had to watch online tutorials to get a handle on the structure and functionality of WordPress. Now I totally get it.

Overall: It really simplifies my life!! I can design, publish and change pages as needed. Cloning a page lets me use a template-like approach. The dashboard lets me see recent activity.

Pros: Even if you know nothing about IT, you can download and install prepackaged Wordpress instances (WAMP or XAMPP for instance), and be up and running in minutes (assuming you don't need to access your site outside of a firewall). Wordpress has made is very easy to make good-looking sites with little-to-no backend coding requirements. Browse for a theme, install it, follow the instructions to customize it, and you're up and running.

Adding functionality to your site is also easy with installable plugins. Install a plugin, try it out, and if it doesn't work, just remove it. Again, no coding knowledge is required in most cases.

Cons: Security, security, security. Wordpress is the most popular hosting platform on the planet, and as a result, it is the most heavily-targeted by hackers. You can stand up a site in minutes and spend hours trying to protect the site from DDOS attacks, known vulnerabilities, etc. Wordpress can be a security nightmare. That being said, it is generally very stable, reliable software once you can secure it.

Overall: Wordpress made it very easy to stand up a personal site, and it's easy to switch themes in case I get tired of my design.

Pros: Extremely customisable and relatively easy to maintain once up and running and once you've put in the time to learn how to properly administrate your website. There are endless amounts of plug-ins, widgets, themes, and add-ons that you can get lost just in customisation. To this end, it's great knowing that two websites don't usually ever look the same.

Cons: Learning Wordpress is an ongoing process. It's not necessarily a bad thing - but if you have no experience with website creation/design, don't think you can just jump in without instruction. If you're committed to learning how to use it, there are many tutorials, info, and user groups online. It's worth it to put the time in.

Overall: After a time investment and some classes, Wordpress made it easy to create and maintain a beautiful and unique website. I've never had any down-time with the site, and when I have needed customer service it was always fantastic.

You don't need technical skills in order to have a running website. This tool is built for everyone whether it is for corporate or blogging, really good.

Cons: Security is one of the key issues that Wordpress has to work on. It's easy to hack. Sometimes, updates can ruin my existing current theme, so i would also have to need to do a little debugging.

Overall: Easy to customize therefore, having a live website running easier to optimize

As a novice user, I enjoy being able to use professional SW and look as much a pro as anyone else!

Pros: Wordpress is intuitive and easy to use for a novice like me. I've been able to create my own blog with media of different types and gain a small following. It's encouraging to be able to 'cut your teeth' and still look reasonably good in the process.

Cons: I would like to be able to manipulate the font on the titles of my pieces-the all caps is difficult to read in the font given for the theme I selected. If I could use both caps and lower case, I think it would look much better.

Overall: I hope to be able to monetize the blog I created with this software in the near future.

In my opinion the best CMS out there

Pros: Regularly updated and maintained by smart people, there are a lot of quality plugins and themes available. Very easy to customize. You don't need to know a whole lot of coding to set up a very nice website (as long as you know how to set it up secure), but if you do know coding you can really utilize WP's very strong assets and build a beautiful custom design website that is maintainable, secure and a strong marketing asset (with strong SEO and analitics).

Cons: One of the biggest targets by hackers, that's why it is so important you know a little bit what you're doing when you set it up. The down side of WP is; initially it is easy to set up, but that makes not so skilled people think they can set up a website easily and miss some very important security plugins and settings, which results in an easy to hack website.

Simple & Straightforward!

Pros: It's not hard to learn the basics. You can quickly learn how to build web pages and update blog content to the site. Of course, there are additional features that might be harder to use but still are not impossible for a beginner website builder.

Cons: Things can get a little wonky and mess up for no reason. Contact support to get them to investigate. There aren't lightning fast to your requests, but still get the job done.

I have used this software to update blog posts and website content for 2 organizations.

Pros: I like the simple interface of this software and the ability to view two screens when making edits: web view and html view, both of which are simple to use with the requisite knowledge. I also appreciate the clean look of the product.

Cons: There are some strange quirks to the software that are unavoidable, such as strange spacing that doesn't seem to follow the norm elsewhere. I also don't like that the average layperson cannot run the updates.

Overall: Low cost, clean product, easy interface.

Pros: - open source design means that it follows open standards, and is freely available for all use. Because its open-source, the code base can be examined by anyone for loopholes or security problems.

- easy to use. Many tutorials can be found online.

- free for everyone.

- many free templates exist for installing in Wordpress to give users a well-designed website layout.

Cons: - somewhat complex learning curve.
- to build more complex websites, users usually must purchase a template which more often than not, is not open source. This partially defeats the purpose of the open-source benefits of WordPress.

Overall: Enabled me to create and design 4 websites at a very low cost and easily maintain the sites.

Wordpress is easy to use for beginners and powerful enough for advanced users to customize codes.

Pros: Wordpress is easy to use while being super extendable. If you're going to build a website, you can build it on wordpress and have it going very quickly. There are plugins for anything you can think of. The only real cost was hosting.

Cons: Wordpress hosts often oversell their services. It's not a jab at wordpress, but rather the hosting provider you choose to use. WP on its own is nearly perfect. I guess you can complain about instability with certain plugins while updating, but it's easy to roll back if something goes bonky.

Support is really quick and wonderful. The happiness engineers indeed keeps us happy.

Cons: There isnt much wrong with wordpress in my own experience thus far but i have not seen any wordpress youtube videos or content to help with the site, if there are content they should consider marketing it better

Overall: This software enables us to grow as a company by having this amazing product to use and build websites that customers love.

Pros: It's well spread and widely known, so it's a familiar system to use. We use this for both our marketing blog as well as our knowledge base - adding and editing posts is easy and straightforward. Tons of plugins to add features that you want.

Cons: Formatting can get really frustrating - definitely helps to be comfortable with HTML code. Using and adding plugins isn't always super intuitive - if you're running a legit business website you should definitely have someone you can work with who really knows the ins and outs of this system.

Overall: Works really well for blogs - makes updating and adding marketing and support content easy.

Pros: * Versatile and robust website builder
* Large number of plug-ins that help tailor your website to your needs
* Range of options for posts, pages and images

Cons: There is a lot to this software. Whilst you have many customization options, sometimes all the options can complicate the process. Some more basic drag and drop web design software can get newbies going faster and with much less effort.
Security on WordPress is also a bit iffy - sites can be hacked somewhat easily. However, there are additional plug-ins you can use to protect you.

Pros: I'm able to find nice looking themes, put up content, and watch page hits with very little effort. There isn't all the functionality without a custom setup and a custom setup is an extra fee, but most don't really need to go that far. At that level it is very expansive. The annual fee to maintain a custom URL is very reasonable.

Cons: The functionality I would probably like is in premium options. It would be nice to be able to trial premium options before buying because I would have to justify the purchase to other people.

Overall: The website gets many more hits than the previous websites because adding new content is so easy.

Pros: Wordpress is very powerful. If you use a page builder like Elementor or Cornerstone, they can greatly help in creating page designs.

There's a plethora of pluggins. Whether your wanting to manage events, improve SEO, etc. there's probably a pluggin. There're also a lot of plugins that improve or extend the features of the backend of Wordpress (such as duplicating and re-arranging pages or posts).

Cons: Wordpress does have security vulnerabilities and it's also a popular CMS. This makes it a target for hackers. Even low traffic sites can have numerous invalid login attempts each day.

Plugins are great, but each one you use has the potential to be a security breach, and each one you use can slow your site down a tad more.

Page-load can be an issue with Wordpress sites since it has to query a database and because sometimes you'll be relying on a theme that you didn't build yourself.

While Wordpress isn't excessively complex, it's not exactly minimalistic. It can be intimidating for clients to login and edit posts/pages.

To conclude, I think my three major gripes with Wordpress boil down to:
1) Security
2) Performance
3) Ease of use

Given the choice, I'd opt for a CMS that's a static site generator any day.

Overall: Wordpress can give you a full-featured website that's not terribly hard to manage. Sometimes this makes it the best options regardless of whether or not it's the best option in all respects.

Pros: Wordpress' advantage is working directly from a database, allowing users to start small and scale with growth and saving a good chunk of change in development. Because Wordpress is open-source and has a huge community built around it, you can get the help you need easily and for free. There really is no limit with what you can build on the Wordpress framework and you save money not having to pay monthly fees you would have to pay with other CMS software.

Cons: It can be a bit overwhelming to new users. If you like the options of scalability, work with a designer to build your site. Depending on your designer's experience level, they can customize the backend for you to meet your needs and make it less intimidating.

Overall: I have been converting all my existing and new clients to the Wordpress framework. It is great to offer smaller businesses this option to help them save on costs incurred with other CMS' that charge monthly fees.

Pros: WordPress is the gold standard for a website back end for a small business. You can do pretty much anything with templates to customize it, and it's pretty easy to learn so that you can change your content. I use a self-hosted version and wouldn't have it any other way.

Cons: It does take some training to learn to use it, but once you get the basics down, it's relatively easy to add blog posts or change text.

Pros: Highly customizable- Wordpress is an open source website creation tool.

Dozens of widgets (a simple and easy-to-use way of giving design and structure control of the WordPress theme to the user).

Paid option to have a unique domain through WordPress.

More than 100 free themes.

Gives very deep control- with control comes a cost, though.

Cons: The main thing is time or money... you are going to need to get familiar with the interface or hire someone who can help you.

Overall: This blogging platform and hosting service is ideal for everyone. Just be willing to invest a little time (or hire someone!) to learn the ins and outs of the system.

Great for beginners but also suitable for those with more website-building experience.

Pros: Here we have a community of professionals creating a (almost) bug-free application. The system is simple yet so powerful! A developer can do almost whatever he wants with the software. Anyway in its native form it is only a blog, not a real CMS.
Online resources are neat and complete. So every problem is easily solved by searching the web.
Community is active and helpful.
The high speed of content rendering is really noteworthy.

Cons: It has few possibilities in the "as is" form. Plugins are available but normally also void of greater functionality.
The system is not very scalable. Hence do not use it for projects with many different functions or lots of pages.

Overall: We use it for simple projects with good results in terms of money for time invested.

Pros: If you plan to start a small web project and don't want to invest in design, wordpress is a very good choice. You will find tons of templates (free or for a small price). If you are happy with a standard design and if you don't have a very special design im mind, wordpress should do the job.

Cons: It is not suitable for large Websites, if you run multiple websites and require enterprise Features, if you are concerned about the security of your website. Wordpress has been a blogging system , mainly for individuals, and that where it belongs.

Pros: WordPress is a useful, powerful tool for creating a web presence. The concept is simple enough, but with so many plug ins and themes it does take some time to learn the full potential. Knowing what a program like WordPress is abstracting under the hood makes it pretty amazing it is as easy to learn as it is. There are tons of free and paid themes that have their own quirks, then there are tons of plug ins, as well. Overall, it is a very vital piece of my business.
There are now even easier tools that abstract even more of the web site building details, but I like having the control that WordPress affords.

Cons: There isn't a lot not to like. Yes, there is a learning curve to getting sites off the ground, but they can be hosted anywhere and you have a ton of flexibility. WordPress is a mature enough tool that there is a lot of information about how to use it out there, which in itself can be a bit overwhelming. Overall, the Pros far outweigh the Cons.

Overall: The biggest benefit I get from WordPress is the power and control to create the web site I had in my mind.

Pros: I love how professional a website can look using Wordpress with having the ability for anybody to update the website content easily. The website developed by professional developers, which is kind of a pro and con. Our website is inviting for our customers. And builds trust to our customers before they even come to our office. Wordpress dashboard has been fluid to work with. Ffor people who have little to no experience will beable to use the dashboard.

Cons: The cost was fair but still high. We see it as almost the cost to for 1 years rent. Which is not that bad because our developers said our website should last 2-4 years. I cannot do any design changes without paying for a developer. Customer Support depends, most customer support would not be with WP but the developers either making the templates or plugins on WP, so the support varies from developers.

Overall: I received a professional Website that my Business can manage. My Website provides an organized place for my future and existing clients can see my services, fill out forms. I can Blog using Wordpress, which is really helpful for my google searches. These blogs are easy to post and are proven to bring business. Fyresite has had client call, asking about the blog post which leads to a sale. And even though I pay a premium for the design of my website, our clients find it inviting and easy to Navigate. Our Contact forms are connected to our Zoho CRM so not only do my sales get an email directly, I'm also able to see all the forms in the WordPress portal. and organized in my CRM. And for the cost, a WordPress website built by me the average joe would probably cost the same as a Wix website. but what a professional can build a Wix website vs a WordPress website. The WordPress website is going to run so much nicer, and it will be able to look better than any Wix website. and Yes it is worth the money

Pros: WordPress is bar none the top choice for building a website. Between the endless options for customization, the ease of use for novice users, and the overwhelming support and documentation, even a beginner can build the site they would like to have the world see. And if you're a developer - it's like being a kid in a candy store, with even more options if you're willing to get your hands dirty in the PHP files!

I should also note, this review is for the core WordPress.org download and install - not for any paid themes or hosting or such. That being said, WordPress stands on its own in terms of both quality and quantity.

Cons: The biggest problem as with any large CMS with plugins is the occasional incompatibility between plugins and themes or plugins and plugins - this is expected, and really the biggest reason why it's a good idea to have a professional at least oversee what you're doing in case something goes wrong.

Overall: WordPress installation makes it a LOT easier to manage website content without having to rewrite every static part of the site on each page - sure, it results in a little code bloat, but for the time it saves, especially when the website has a blog, it's totally worth it! And it's not like there isn't a plugin or htaccess tweak to take care of THAT as well ;)

Pros: Reasonable costs and the ability to highly customize or to use existing templates depending on your skill level.

Cons: The user interface could be cleaned up and made a little more intuitive. Additional customization options could be simplified.

Pros: It seems to be quite flexible, and pretty much anything you want to do with your site is possible. If it's not available in the core software, there's usually a plugin or add-on that has the functionality needed. We've been able to use WP to build a website we like very much.

Cons: It's been difficult to learn how to use it. Sometimes options or settings are buried or hidden in menus or areas that you wouldn't expect. I suspect if it were made simpler or more intuitive though, it would become limited in it's capabilities.

Overall: WP has helped us to build a website which we're very happy with. It's been difficult to learn at times, but so far everything we've needed to do we've been able to find or figure out.

Pros: It does what I need it to, for the most part. Not overly complicated although there are more than enough gadgets to attach onto this.

Cons: Depending on how you use it, this may get complicated- and fast. Not exactly full of helpful guides (the tips offered are not exactly clear).

Overall: Basic analytics were insanely helpful, but at the same time, it was hard to tell for sure how accurate they were. I enjoyed the variety of options that were provided but they had their pros and cons.

I found that it was an easy website to Nava through.

Pros: Its ease of use for beginners and its advanced options for pro-designers. There are also so many plug-ins available that can be used to really customize a website.

Cons: Sometimes it is confusing on how to access the plugins once they are installed. Some of them end up getting displayed in other menu options. Having just a plugin section in the software would help tremendously.

Pros: It is such an enabler for website creation. Most of the requested functionalities are present through the plugins. We can always modify the existing theme to meet our needs.

Cons: Sometimes the updates wipe of the custom code in theme. I would want it to prompt me before making an overwrite so that I can chose my part of code also in the updated version.

Overall: Created a lot many websites :)

Pros: I've used this software from the beginning for various blogs and it has come a long way. You don't need to know anything about writing HTML to create a blog with Wordpress and change simple parts, such as title and colors. Easy to install plugins and update everything.

Overall: It's so easy to use that people don't need to know anything about CSS or HTML which makes it harder to customize certain aspects of themes.

Pros: I love wordpress because it is so widely used that you can find many helpful articles across the web and pretty much teach yourself how do everything you need to know. There are many great themes out there for free and for purchase that you can use to create any type of website you need to.

Cons: Because wordpress is so widespread it is both a blessing and a curse. One thing that you have to be aware of is the amount of possible attacks you can have on your website. Make sure to have strong passwords and have a hosting provider that has safeguards in place for security.

Pros: Wordpress is amazing for its flexibility and huge collection of professional and amateur developer created plugins and themes. The sky is the limit and someone else did the work for you.

Cons: Wordpress has a constant battle with security. There is a lot of techniques to keep your site secure, but if you install the wrong plugin, your site can be hacked. Additionally, because of the ability to install as many plugins as you like, your site speed may be affected. This is more of a problem with the developers of those plugins than with Wordpress though.

Overall: Wordpress saves a lot of time because it is easy to use and a lot of necessary functionality has already been coded up by someone else.

Pros: The pros of Wordpress are vast for both the novice and experienced user. Growing with Wordpress over the years as my business grew has been a great journey. For the novice, start with a managed hosting service until you grow out of it. And you will quickly. From there, you can then move to a platform like Amazon AWS and pay for what you use as you grow,
To be live quickly, purchase templates from a number of websites made by excellent designers. Search by your business type or make a template your own with minor modification and tweaks.
As you get more comfortable making changes to your WordPress site, plug-ins become very important to add functionality easily and quickly. Once again, you can visit one of many websites for professional plug-ins or utilize to the WordPress Repository for a large selection of free plug-ins.

Now years later, I am designing my own themes as well as updating my previously purchased themes to be more inline with my design vision. It has become easier to be more adventurous without having to learn a line of code. The results are very custom and professional looking. For small business you will be hard pressed to find a more cost effective solution.

Cons: Back-up on a regular basis! There are plenty of plug-in to do this. The biggest issue or Con I see for most users, especially novice users is when adding a new plug-in that breaks the site the site has not been backed-up. Plug-ins are hit or miss. You may have to try a few to ensure you do not have incompatibility issues so have 1 or two back-ups ready to deploy.

Overall: The biggest benefit is not having to hire an designer to maintain my own websites, CRM and mailing lists. All of these vital areas of my business are operated from my Wordpress install.
For small business owners, you save time by making updates to your site as needed and money by having your own DIY tech.

Cons: Once you want to progress and leave behind to basic functions to start taking advantage of the major ones, you need a little bit of time to learn how all of them work before you can start feeling its benefits.

Overall: We use mainly its platform Woocomerce to help us manage our commands and attend our clients quickly.

Pros: We really like the ease of use of the website. With staff changes and updating information, it can be difficult for our full time staff to find time to make those changes. We're able to train our interns to update the information accordingly and quickly so that all our information is current. It helps that WordPress is so user friendly. It saves us time and keeps us current.

Cons: The only issue that we've had with WordPress is when we've tried to update the bios for some of our staff. There was a formatting issue and that could have been on our end. But it was not displaying the staff member's information correctly. We were able to resolve the issue so that it now displays the way it should.

Overall: I really like the way we can change how information is displayed. There are a lot of options with the layout of the website, and as a small business we want to make sure we're giving people a professional impression. WordPress really helps us to achieve that.

Pros: In the past I had attempted build personal websites to showcase my personal portfolio, but I always ran into hurdles I couldn't overcome as a result of my lack of knowledge for web development.

The creation of Wordpress changed that.

Now with the easy to use interface and endless number of themes and plugins that are created to provide a specific service or action for your website, I have been able to easilr build a professional looking website that I would have been able to do otherwise. Finding and learning Wordpress has really taken my professional online presence to the next level, and I'm not quire sure what I would do without it.

Cons: As someone who has tried various methods of building a website, I can say that any frustrations I have pale in comparison with what I've experienced with Wordpress.

Sure, there will always be a bit of a learning curve, but building a site with Wordpress has to be one of the least frustrating experiences I've had when building my presence online. With that said, I've got nothing to complain about regarding what they've provided to their user base.

Overall: Again, in the past, building a website was a nightmare. With Wordpress, that changed almost over night. The easy of use, available themes, and plugins to support your specific needs make building a website a breeze compared to what it used to be.

I would highly recommend Wordpress to anyone looking to build a website, whether its for business or personal use.

Pros: Wodpress is highly adaptable, it has a large number of widgets that allow it to expand to almost any need. It has the best interface for the backend of a blog that I have seen. Additionally they offer a payment option to have a unique domain through WordPress. More than 100 free themes. It gives bloggers a very deep control.

Cons: For beginners it can be a bit challenging to set up the frontend; however, there is a wealth of online documentation to assist in this task.

Also keep in mind that this configuration task takes a lot of time.

Overall: I currently run a small tech blog. Wordpress has been the essential tool of this blog. After passing the stage of designing the site, it allowed me to publish my articles in an easy and elegant way.

I highly recommend it.
