Pros: It is very easy to set up a website and the amount of available themes is enormous. Additional addons and tools let customize everything very smoothly, without any programming knowlegde

Cons: Many of the addons are poorly written which makes some safety problems. Same with Wordpress - it has many loops and while every new version covers most of them, it is difficult to keep up to date, especially when addons are not updated fast enough. This makes a big mess to follow all the changes and to keep the website secure...

Overall, WordPress is a fantastic, flexible, and user-friendly content management system.

Pros: - WordPress is open source, so it is always evolving (both within the themes and the plugins).

- WordPress is very flexible, almost any functionality and design can be easily developed

- Non-technical admins can manage a plethora of options - from marketing to copy to new page creation.

Cons: - Learning curve for non-technical admins is higher than other, similar content management systems.

- Because WordPress is open source, there is a lot of poor quality products built using the technology. It's important to understand how things are developed prior to purchasing themes, plugins, etc.

Overall: WordPress is the most important marketing tool in my arsenal.

Pros: I started designing websites in 1996 by hand - using only Notepad. I pretty much kept doing this until I discovered Wordpress, more than a decade later. To say it's the best is an understatement. The best part is that it's so easy, I can quickly train the people I create websites for on how to update their sites themselves.

Cons: There's not much to not like. With all the themes, plugins, and regular core updates, Wordpress does everything I need. Since I have to choose something, I would say that I least like ... um ... sorry, can't do it! It's the best!

Pros: -Offers a free or affordable pricing plan for either my personal blog or business.
-Edit with HTML or CSS to make the website or blog look however way I want.
-Able to install plugins to enhance the website or add in features that is not there by default.
-Great for marketing especially, since so many Wordpress plugins are available for SEO, SMM, or SEM purposes.

Cons: -Too many unnecessary plugins are installed by default, have to remove manually.
-Sometimes random features such as image linking does not work after an update and that can be annoying.
-Easy to mess up CSS/HTML coding and end up with a disorganized website.

Overall: Well received blog with plenty of website traffic and content creation opportunities.

Pros: We built our entire website from the ground up with Wordpress before upgrading to a different company. There was no need to upgrade, the company simply wanted to try another build. Wordpress offers all the same features as the higher priced companies with a free trial included.

Cons: The try before you buy is a great feature, although I wish all features were unlocked during the trial.

Pros: It's so easy to use, especially for beginners. I have no experience with web design but I am able to go in there and adjust features on my own. There are many awesome widgets you can use and customize to your needs.

Cons: Sometimes the customization tools can be a little confusing if you're not used to using them. The descriptors are slightly vague so I usually have to preview a bunch of times to figure out what I am editing.

Overall: I love that it is so easy to use, especially since I have zero experience with web design. You can pretty much customize it to fit any of your needs.

Pros: It's a powerhouse of functionality and flexibility. There's a reason why almost everyone with a website uses Wordpress. From the user experience to the technical details, it offers the most dynamic and solid foundation to your website. If you're a developer, you have plenty of options with Wordpress, too. Other options like Squarespace, etc. don't give you the features and functions that are needed to fully optimize your website to become a business.

Cons: It can take a while to get used to. As someone who is more tech-savvy than others, even I still needed tutorials and help to get the hang of Wordpress and learn how to make it do what I want it to do for me.

Pros: The community continues to expand WordPress features and functionality stays up to date with modern web expectations. We have a number of nimble e-commerce and analytics plugins and couldn't be happier with the offerings. The software scales well.

Cons: WordPress is constantly being updated. From the backend, this can be a disadvantage when tools and functions change with little to no warnings. The ecosystem is easy to setup but difficult to debug.

The vast majority of the designs available in WordPress are responsive, that is, they are displayed perfectly on any type of device.

Cons: I can not have my own web domain, but choose a subdomain within the WordPress.com platform with the limitations that this entails.
Impossibility to introduce ads on the web to get the most out of the site.

Pros: Without question, what I like best about WordPress is the huge community behind it, on both the paid and unpaid side. The quality of some of the more popular templates is incredible, and enables users with zero visual design skills to easily create beautiful, modern looking websites. The plugin side of things is similarly awesome, there plugins available for almost every possible use case, and they can work together to create extremely powerful tools.

Cons: The admin interface can be a bit tricky to navigate, and low level editing within the browser can be a bit tricky. I would like to see better options to edit themes and tweak other low level code within the browser and not have to jump out to an alternative connection to access that data.

Pros: I do like that there are some automated options that make it easy to set up basic service on a website without a lot of website design experience. For example, it was simple to set up a process for new users to register on the website. It is also easy to upload your own media like photos and videos.

Cons: I have found it rather difficult to navigate some of the features. Our website was set up before I came on board. While some areas are easy to access and make changes/corrections etc. Other areas of the website are difficult to identify in the Dashboard. There are parts of our website I would change today if only I could figure out how to access these areas. Wordpress wasn't very helpful when I called. Only willing to help if I pay them. Kinda disappointing when you have already purchased their software.

Pros: WordPress is an easy software to make changes and updates to your website. Once the shell of your website is built, anyone who has basic knowledge of sites can easily and quickly make changes to your site.

Cons: If you are not a WordPress expert - or if you didn't build your own website (you outsourced), it can be difficult to make customizations.

Overall: Once your website is built on the WordPress platform - updates are easy! You can make changes and view them before you make permanent changes.

Pros: Wordpress is one of the best CMS (content management system) platforms out there, have used it to personally develop and host over 30 sites over a 7 year period and it just works. Some of the best features of Wordpress include: 1) Downloadable Themes - These are basically templates for Wordpress sites, you can look through the many thousands online and find a design that suits your Wordpress site or you can have one developed. 2) Plugins - Wordpress has the best plugins period! 3) Ease of use - When setting up a self hosted Wordpress site, you can add plugins and themes quickly and almost seamlessly. Wordpress is relatively easier to use than hard coding an HTML site, and it is also easier to update than traditional HTML and other CMS platforms. 4) Customization - You can create almost any kind of site with Wordpress, the level of customization from plugins, to themes to editing the code make this a CMS with almost endless possibilities. 5) Built In features - Wordpress as a CMS has some great built in features, like the ability to create posts and pages on the fly, add images and media files, manage SEO of specific posts and also manage comments on the site all without installing anything else.

Cons: Wordpress works great in most cases but it still has a lot of issues that can be annoying to deal with. 1) Backups can be a hustle if you don't have a plugin to use. Since Wordpress itself does not have automatic backups, if you do not install a plugin and run into some trouble, you are on your own. 2) Troubleshooting Wordpress is not an easy task - While it is easy to use, Wordpress is not easy to troubleshoot. In many cases, if you may need to simply reinstall Wordpress if you run into an error, which can mean losing valuable time and work. 3) Wordpress Themes don't always "work" - One thing about ease of use is the simple plug and play feel But with Wordpress themes, this is not always the case. If you install a theme, the default settings are not installed, you have to customize and tinker to get a site to look close to a demo. 4) A stale design for the Admin Portal - Wordpress admin areas are not customizable which means almost every Wordpress site has the same admin portal, there are plugins that can help with some customization but it is a shame that this is not just built into Wordpress itself. 5) Cleaning up - While Wordpress is easy to use, cleaning up if you install a number of plugins and themes is not as easy as it looks. You may have to have Cpanel access to delete files or select them individually in the respective areas to get them deleted.

We are still new to WordPress and have moved over from our traditional web based platform with ease.

Pros: So far we love WordPress. Setting up a domain and hosting is easy with Word press. It has two variants.
Wordpress.com- It gives you free blog which can be hosted on its own server. You don't have to worry about the configuration part.
Wordpress.org- It gives you self-hosted WordPress system which could be directly uploaded to your server. It has the advantage to change however you want. This is the one we use.
Wordpress gives you subdomain as free where it will be under WordPress.
With the help of WordPress and its plugins, things are much easier to control and keep intact.
Plugins like Akismet which help you control spam. You get free themes in WordPress. It has its own place to download free themes. If you want to download any premium themes, You could download it from Woo themes, ThemeForest, Elegant Themes. The new release of WordPress is Twenty-Seventeen which made things even easier. Header images can be changed and adjusted easily. You could have a background image for your website. Dynamic resizing helps your website to view any devices by adjusting the size of its display. It is easy to install and configure and it has various plugins which help you control your website

Cons: It is still very new to us but it gives our team much more control over publishing up to date content on our website

Overall: Much more control and multiple users for updating content on website. User friendly with great tutorials for managing and support has been good so far.

Pros: WordPress is a great option for a Web-based software that allows to manage content with a vast amount of add in, plugins and third party features making WordPress one of the top content management software that for sure will help you to create great blogs, websites, e-commerce solutions. Even tho its features are set in a variety of open source and a decent number of freebies complements, you can also choose whether invest in custom content such as themes, plugins, add ins, of develop content using skilled web developers or do it your self with the support of large community of people that for sure will have something to offer to your WordPress Project.

Cons: WordPress has several limitation such as the ability to create custom permission templates using the native built-in features. Cannot create groups or delegate specific access to single users. The e-commerce has a wide range of options but is hard to find something that can fit advance to complex requirements, I do suggest to move forward looking for a third party solution outside of the WordPress universe that allows you to embed content into your WordPress Project. It¿s easy to build a bad WordPress site since the lack of knowledge can turn your project goals against you, you better invest in a proper training to achieve a successful Web site using WordPress.

Pros: Of all the CMS for web design that I have used, Wordpress is my favorite because it is very complete and allows me to create almost any type of website. There is a wide variety of plugins that we can integrate, also has a lot of documentation and there are many forums devoted to wordpress topics that will help us clarify any doubt.

Cons: When integrating many plugins, some may conflict and not work properly, on the other hand if you want to perform a fully customized development you must have advanced knowledge as it is not easy to modify your source code. we must also keep it updated to prevent version failures.

Overall: I started developing websites thanks to wordpress and I consider it a great option to develop quality websites.

Pros: Wordpress Is an amazing tool. The reason I like it is it can be highly customizable, it also can work well for people who do not know how to code. It saves businesses a lot of money as they can update the sites themselves or pay us to do it for them. The ability to choose either a template WordPress site or a fully custom WordPress site gives clients many options to choose from. with WordPress using PHP5, the web speed is good. Templates will be the slowest on WordPress as they are bulky and fully custom sites will get you the fastest site speed.

Cons: The cons of WordPress are that some of the templates can be a pain to work with and slow. doing really custom work on wordpress takes some knowledge of PHP and CSS

Overall: this helps us create useable websites for our clients. it's like we get to build them a car to advertise with. and this car can be customized to our clients budget

Pros: Wordpress is probably the best tool out there for building custom sites. You get ultimate flexibility without having to have a deep understanding of coding.

Cons: Its greatest strength can be its greatest weakness. The flexibility of an open platform leaves room for unrefined and clunky plugins that can slow sites down. Be careful about your plugin usage and try to use as few as you can.

Overall: I always recommend Wordpress to others. There's not better tool for building a very custom site with lots of functionality.

Anything you need has probably been covered.

Cons: - A bit of a learning curve. I recommend Squarespace for deeply non-tech users. - Need to set up correctly to make it truly secure. Use a host you trust (I use Dreamhost).

Pros: Wordpress is a great software to use for any type of website or blog that you may have in the works. I was able to look through hundreds of templates to fit our needs. Our developer set up the entire site with direction from us. At the end of the build he was able to direct us on how to update specific sections we were looking to change periodically. We are not techies and being able to do so has saved us a ton of money we didn't have to spend going back to the developer for any changes/updates.

Cons: To be honest with you, there isn't much not to like. There may be other "turnkey" software packages out there, but Wordpress is what we love.

Pros: Wordpress is easy to use, it has so much functionality and integration with many services or other platforms that it becomes a complete tool to be used, I like how many themes and add-ons already exist, which makes it possible to create a website without needing to know everything there is to know about coding. WordPress also allows to locate the information in chronological order, which is beneficial for those who evaluate the content of the website, since it facilitates the audit. The management of this platform is simple and for beginners it is ideal because it does not deserve so much technical knowledge to carry out the objectives, i also love that WordPress provides a good preview option, so you can see your work before publishing it for the world to see. It's a good and powerful combination of features.

Cons: Visual changes are sometimes blocked in a more complex coding language such as PHP, which can be difficult to work for someone with a limited amount of coding knowledge. Many of the widgets do not work or they will slow down the site, so there is some trial and error there.

Overall: Ideal to handle a unique page design, excellent responsive handling without much fuss. Due to the flexibility, I do not have to insist on whether it is suitable for most customers.

Many are individual designers or design agencies that create their own template (called Themes or Theme) and make it available to other users, in some cases for free and in others for payment.

Cons: It is not a free service
It requires a medium level of knowledge, it is not an excessively complex platform like others, but neither is it as intuitive as the Drag and Drop web creators, for example. In any case, after a short period of contact, the user will know how to get along quite easily on the platform.

Pros: A wordpress name itself says that to spread the words of ones. Wordpress is a blog portal has the no subscriptions fees and absolutely free. Loved the lot. I uses this service since a long time and now transferred my blog to a personal domain.

Cons: The only cons with this service is that we can give royalty as to our blogs. Its predefined with ads by wordpress to recover its server costs.

Pros: Wordpress makes making a website look and function the way its supposed to easy. Since there are so many active users, finding the answer to a common problem is as simple as searching for it on Google. While I know basic HTML, CSS, and Javascript, Wordpress makes it easier to manipulate and control my website using themes and plugins.

Cons: There really are no cons to Wordpress so long as you have the time to learn to use it. It does take some time to use and isn't as intuitive as Wix or other Drag and Drop sitebuilders BUT those types of programs don't give you the functionality and control over your website either.

Overall: I found Wordpress easy to learn thanks to all the tutorials and forums out there. The community is very helpful and you can basically use it to make your website do just about anything you would like it to. If you want to create a website and don't know how to code (or only know the basics), Wordpress will be your best friend.

Pros: WordPress gave me an easily-understood platform to compose, edit, save, and share my blog posts. As a music-based blog, WordPress was a way for us to write quality content via a platform that could also host images and embedded YouTube/Soundcloud/Bandcamp widgets. Album covers/music videos/song uploads are extremely important to our content, and WordPress gives us the opportunity to upload it all in one succinct, professional-looking package.

All-in-all, WordPress is incredibly flexible and fluid. A music blog is as equally as possible as a more straightforward website or marketplace. While it might not be the best tool for a larger company or organization, WordPress is certainly an extremely useful tool for those on a budget.

Cons: There are a lot of customize-able features in WordPress that can be overwhelming to process. It's a matter of investing time and a trial-and-error mentality to try to understand them all.

Certain plugins or widgets have a tendency to malfunction or derail your entire blog post... Find a formula that works for your blog and stick with it.

Overall: A platform to share my writing with a larger scale audience. An easy way to display post after post while highlighting the newest posts first.

Pros: Wordpress has done a great job adapting through the years and creating an easy way for non-technical and technical folks to utilize it well. It is not as robust as some other things out there but i would say it is a good product.

Cons: What I like least about wordpress is the basic nature of it. yes..there are lots of things you can do but to me it still seems a little behind the times. Again, i think it is great for some people..especially those who have been using it for years.

Pros: Perpetual updating to avoid security problems and to keep up with needs of modern users. The platform becomes more easily customize-able with each release. Google loves it, probably because it is 'cut and dried' clear. I recommend WordPress over other CMS software because of the user-friendly aspect. There are other very good systems, but seem to be geared toward 'geeks'. I liked WordPress for clients who want to be part of small updates on their website without having to call me for small changes. I've never regarded WordPress as simply a blogging platform, but as the basis for a whole website.

Cons: Some coders complain about the heavy load of code needed to work with WordPress as a website and not only a blogging platform.

Overall: i ask this software to work hard for my and clients as a foundation for websites that is SEO friendly and reasonably easy to use.

Pros: Free and lots of plugins and themes to choose from in a designers area and wordcamps are great to go to

Cons: Can use a bit more security features and roles for users in a wordpress site. I like to see a super admin that can control everyone like in linux and who can do what in plugins instead of coding functions in the function file

Overall: A great way to learn on CMS as well as programming some things in the pages as well as learning with HTML and CSS

Great tool to get you started with a web presence.

Pros: This was very easy to set up and provided a very basic and easy website/blog. Within a few minutes you can go from not knowing much to have your own website up and running. There are a lot of plugins that will extend the features and functionality to morph this into whatever you need it to be. The platform is stable and really provides for a good user experience.

Cons: Because the software can do so much, there are a lot of settings that must be configured prior to go-live. The plugins can be difficult to understand and can be buggy as most things are very dependent on the base version of the software. It you want to do beyond the basics at all, you really need to deep dive into the technology otherwise you will be lost on the configuration.

Overall: This gave me a quick and easy start to a website. The support that is out there made it much easier than other platforms when it came to getting up and running.

Pros: For an experienced user, WordPress can be an excellent tool and host for your website. There are many ways to customize your site if you have some knowledge of websites and coding.

Cons: I am not too familiar with websites and coding, so I had a friend help me. With her help, we were able to make it exceptional.

Pros: Wordpress is the best web platform if your looking for something that doesn't cost anything. There are also many other plugins and themes to get more out of it.

Cons: Wordpress has some major issues regarding security. It's open source and widely used so that makes it a big target for hackers and bots. You can protect yourself with constant patches and plugins but it's very time consuming to do all that.

The login screen is also very carefully designed and branded.

Overall: I have created stunning websites with this software.

Pros: WordPress is simple and easy to use, which is great. There are TONS of tutorials, overviews, help threads, etc. to support you when needed, and lots of flexibility in building your blog or site.

Cons: The hardest thing about WordPress is connecting it with your domains and such, as there is not much support here. We used GoDaddy, and the communication was poor from both parties to help us integrate.

Pros: - Consistent Wordpress features and editing between websites make it easy to manage multiple Wordpress sites - It's free! - SEO plugins incredibly useful and proven to actually be effective (even if they're free) - Considerably easier to use than other web platforms (like Drupal), but still requires a decent amount of poking around to get your website NOT looking like another Wordpress site

Cons: - Our team is concerned about security considering the amount of login attempts we get - Plugins are often out-of-date and require constant updating - Plugins seem to become obsolete quickly (the smaller, less supported ones)

Pros: Wordpress is the de facto place to build custom or semi-custom websites... it has its own version of an "app store" with so many free and paid integrations plus themes. Wordpress allows for a very easy or complex build depending on your level of expertise. The Wordpress help center is one of the most helpful I've found as it does accelerate my self-learning curve.

Cons: Hard to find fault with Wordpress... maybe for those who are new... Wordpress could offer too many choices, which can be overwhelming.

Pros: The ability to create entire websites or web applications built on WordPress.

The ease of use getting data from the database because of WordPress's built-in PHP templating functions.

The ability for non-coders to slap on a theme and get a site up and running with minimal effort.

The amount of free plugins available to extend functionality of your site.

Cons: It can be daunting to try to figure out how to use WordPress as a beginner. There is so much information and so many menus to choose from. It is best to buy a theme that comes with an instruction manual.
