"Excellent content management system perfect for all use"

What do you like best?

I love that this software is very versatile, it has the possibility of creating any website, from a simple page to a more complex page like an electronic commerce. It also has more than 50,000 add-ons with which to play and create new incredibly dynamic and colorful pages. This software is also far superior to its security level competence and constant updates

What do you dislike?

I do not like the software to be manually updated, since in case the maintenance staff does not realize that the software needs updating, then the software will never be updated. This is a problem, you should have some option to be able to have automatic updates. In some cases wordpress may lose flexibility due to the template that is being used. If you use a good template with many complete, the results can be incredible

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think it is a software that everyone should use for the development of web pages since it is simple to use and very intuitive. In addition to having an excellent security. Anyone without a lot of web knowledge can manage to create their website from this tool. I love

"Excellent Resource"

What do you like best?

WordPress is easy to use. Users do not have to have a background in any kind of web design to make a professional website. With the free option, users have the ability to run their own basic website that is perfect for marketing. With the paid option, it gives uses the option to embed videos or get a little more detailed. There is also the option to keep track of the traffic on your website, specifically the days, times of day, and continental location of the viewers.

What do you dislike?

I understand that WordPress has to make money, but I wish there were more freedom with the free option. However, because money must be made, the free option is a great basic option. It really depends strictly on what you are using it for.

Recommendations to others considering the product

In order to get the most out of a WordPress website, it's probably best to go ahead and invest in the paid version, only because there are no restrictions to what you can and cannot post. But for those just using it personally for a blog or a start-up, the free version is more than capable of providing you the professionalism and quality you need.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I am using WordPress primarily to advance my own business endeavors. The benefits of using WordPress are great. It is easy to share material and information, and it is helpful to be able to keep track of the traffic on my website.

"WordPress - My review "

What do you like best?

Wordpress is a useful tool to creators websites, blogs, etc. This program is friendly to new users, so you do not have any problems to start using this software. Another advantage is that WordPress has tools to fast create graphics or something like that so that you can do all in one place. The interface is transparent, so you can search quickly all what do you need. Price is low you all do not have a problem to buy it because this is cheap.

What do you dislike?

One of the drawbacks is their support, first of all, it is not available live support, and sometimes I had a problem to find something it needs.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to create your page or blog, you should try it, because this is a very helpful tool. If you have never used such programs before, now you can change thanks to free options. That is good for new users because they can try this software.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Now create and upgrades my site and blog has become very fast and simple. WordPress saved me a lot of time.

"Best CMS for every website you want create"

What do you like best?

I have been using Wordpress for many years, I have been in several companies that have used wordpress as CMS for their websites or for their clients and I have never encountered an application that I can not create in wordpress.

The wordpress system is very powerful and can be created on the large number of web applications, plugings or themes. Wordpress is also open source and an example in the development of Php application.

Wordpress is the best also because:

- With wordpress you can create a highly customized site

- Wordpress is completely free and open source

- Thousands of plugins and themes available, both free and paid

- You can automate the content to be published on a certain date

What do you dislike?

Although I love wordpress, I would like the creation of plugins to be simpler, sometimes to create a plugin one should repeat a lot of content in the documents.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend using Wordpress no matter what type of site you are going to create because with wordpress you can create and manage your site in a simple and very safe way. Also you do not need to pay licenses to use it.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wordpress allows us to create the websites of our clients in a simple and fast way. Also when we need a certain customization it is also possible to provide it to our clients because Wordpress is very powerful. Wordpress does not require licenses either, so we save money.

"Far more than a blogging tool, this is a multi purpose full CMS"

What do you like best?

The way the organisation and the project is run means that it's never standing still and is slowly evolving and morphing, changing with the times. These changes are usually always very slow with plenty of notice - evolution not revolution - so there's no need to worry about an incoming update totally ruining a site you've created. The community is wide and diverse, it often feels as though there's a plugin for everything and there are countless forums, subreddits, podcasts, livestreams etc all about Wordpress. That in particular is a way that it stands head and shoulders above Magento, Umbraco etc

What do you dislike?

It would be easy to say "Gutenburg", introduced with version 5 and marking a complete overhaul of the Wordpress editor but to be honest it wasn't that bad and is a step in the right direction. On the other hand, easily, categorically and without doubt the worst part of Wordpress is the Plugins Repository especially when you compare it with the modern incarnations like the Apple App Store or Google Play. It's so far behind. It's difficult to search, impossible to filter, packed with junk, a mishmash of free and heavily limited freemium plugins and ruined with a lot of out of date plugins.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Think of the site you want to create and then search for plugins related to that niche - real estate, holiday lettings, car mechanics, etc - you'll usually find a working plugin that can be purchase very cheaply. Also install a browser extension like Wappalyzer to help you detect when the sites you visit are on Wordpress - you might be surprised to see how many there are. Let their designs and features inspire you!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wordpress (self hosted) is a great base for any and all web projects that we undertake. The sheer adaptability of the platform and breadth of its userbase mean that it can be tailored to any use and that you'll rarely, if ever, struggle to find the answer to a support question.

"Great place to start learning about blogging and content management systems"

What do you like best?

The ease of use for updating content. The variety of themes, plugins, and tools available to use to enhance your website, create an online store or create a platform for online engagement.

What do you dislike?

There are certain plugins that don't play well with others which can cause conflicts or create a complete shutdown of the entire site. Not knowing which plugins are corrupt or had poorly written code is sometimes discovered after its already been installed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are on an old CMS platform, consider moving over to WordPress. Its worth the trouble of rebuilding an entire site to get the peace of mind when making updates to a website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have migrated all our business websites to the Wordpress platform because of ease of use, a vast amount of tools available to developers for building and creating awesome online experiences. Just being able to update content easily and having full control and knowledge if where that content resides is a value when comparing it to other platforms.

"Still the Greatest Blogging Platform"

What do you like best?

Ease of use and freedom to use commercially for a really reasonable price (just pay for your hosting of choice). From the rank beginner to the experts the ease of customization is astounding. Not just for blogging it makes an excellent platform from which to build a conventional business website including e-commerce.

What do you dislike?

I need to learn a bit more to truly customize my site. Some of the paid themes are not really worth bothering with, but it's hard to tell until you install them and run them for a while.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are serious about either blogging or just building a decent looking website for your business but don't want to completely create everything from scratch you should look at WordPress.org first.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I mainly started the motopsyco.com blog with the intentions of simply showing off my work customizing and restoring motorcycles. Increased publicity for my work has been a terrific benefit, and I have plans to offer additional services in the next few months using this blog as a major part of my advertising strategy.

"Excellent software for the development and management of websites"

What do you like best?

I like that this web tool is very easy to use by anyone, without necessarily having prior knowledge of websites. At the same time it has a lot of very useful and interesting plugins to improve the functionalities of the website, something that other CMS platforms do not have, or in case you have it, there are few plugins that can be installed and used

What do you dislike?

What I do not like is that many of the CMS updates must be done manually, and the person in charge of the website must be aware that there is an update of the Core or some plugins. In some cases there are also plugin compatibility problems with the latest wordpress updates. You should always make a backup to avoid losing the site in case of a bad update

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think wordpress is a great tool, and I constantly recommend it to my colleagues because it has great potential. In addition, the ease of use and web design is incredible. It is also perfect to maintain. And all without a person having great knowledge in web programming

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped me in the company to build new websites, since it is easy to use and maintain any website developed on this platform. In turn, the large number of topics that exist are incredible, you can modify the design of a website in a very simple way. Finally it integrates perfectly with our MariaDB databases

"The Best Web Templates"

What do you like best?

One of the things I like most about Wordpress is the number of MODIFIED templates! what are you offering. In addition to having a variety of tools to customize our tastes.

They also have excellent service plans very comfortable that are adapted to the needs.

I like the fact that I can count on functions like Jetpack and SEO to manage the website.

In addition to the whole site is very intuitive, thus achieving that we can make the creation or modification without many impediments or knowledge of web design.

What do you dislike?

Nothing!. I love everything that Wordpress offers and it comforts me to know and see that they are always innovating to improve their services.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend Wordpress to companies or people who want to venture into the sale of services of creation, updating and maintenance to websites.

I also recommend using the premium package as it is the most useful when giving any type of service except that it is a very large company.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

With Wordpress I have made the creation of websites and online stores above all. And of course you can get maintenance service contracts to the same ones already created or for new clients

"WordPress is the best!"

What do you like best?

WordPress is the best solution for building websites - I am convinced! It saves you time and money and it is more flexible than other solutions like Wix, Squarespace, etc. The wide variety of plugins and themes make WordPress fully customizable and there are thousands of forum sites and other places that can help you due to the number of people who use it.

What do you dislike?

The admin panel is a bit outdated and cluttered. There are also quite a few security holes, so using a solution like WordFence is a must. Finally, WordPress itself can easily become "jerry-rigged" when it is used as a website builder. WordPress was technically meant to be a blogging platform where you can also have other pages. Plugins like WPBakery changed the game and made it much more flexible, but it also is kind of awkward because the plugins step on each other and also are put on top of the default WordPress editor. Translation: the editor becomes clunky but as long as you know what you are doing, the end result is fine.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for the most flexible CMS as a web developer or a computer savvy person, WordPress is for you. If you don't like working with computers or you want something that is simple and straight forward, either hire a WordPress expert or use a service like Squarespace.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WordPress lets us have a web presence and explain our services to our customers. It also gives us a blog platform where we can post news and helpful tips for our customers.

"Excellent software for website development and management"

What do you like best?

I like this software because it is simple to use, besides that many of our clients use them to manage their websites and it is really easy to use, it also has more than 50,000 add-ons that are really incredible to add functionalities to websites. Another of its great advantages is having an excellent SEO behavior, this improves the possibility of being found easily in search engines. Finally another advantage is its control panel very intuitive and very easy to use

What do you dislike?

I believe that this software really site excellent prestatanciones, when installed in a hosting itself does not have automatic updates, so the administrator must be aware of possible software updates to keep the system integrated. At the same time some templates are very limited, the templates with great features are paid. There are also functionalities for online stores, but they are not very used for very large virtual stores due to scalability problems

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend companies to use this tool for the development of their website, since it is very useful and simple to use, having a large number of add-ons. On the other hand, many of its templates have little flexibility to modify their design

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

This software solved a fundamental problem which was the administration of websites in a simple and dynamic way. At the same time many of our customers use this software and easier to perform routine maintenance of their websites thanks to this tool

"It is very easy to learn, install and use.!"

What do you like best?

I consider that Wordpress is the best CMS to create quality websites and quickly, Its main advantage is that it is free and we can download it very easily from its official website (wordpress.org)

Although it seems incredible, the installation process is very simple and only takes 5 minutes, and once installed we can start developing our website immediately.

The interface of wordpress is very intuitive, at first glance we can find all the necessary options and immediately we can start creating pages or entries for our blog upload multimedia content and more ..!

Wordpress allows us to create any type of website, from the simplest ones to websites for e-commerce, that is, it offers us many possibilities, in addition there is a large community of users worldwide that support its use.

Wordpress facilitates the management of the design of our websites, since we can find in its official site many free themes that we can install at our convenience, in addition there are a variety of plugins that we can also download and install to improve the functioning of any website that we are developing.

What do you dislike?

Keep in mind that Wordpress sites can be exposed to attacks and sometimes are often hacked, that is why we must install plug-ins that allow us to strengthen their security preventing any type of attack, we must also download plugins and themes directly from your official site or other sites that we consider safe to avoid security problems.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is very easy to learn, install and use..! if you spend time learning its operation you can create really cool websites in a very short time.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wordpress is great and I use it constantly in my work, I decrease my development times because it is enough to install some plugins to improve the functionality of my site and also save design time since the themes I install already have a defined style.

"WordPress makes my life as a E-Store Manager easier!"

What do you like best?

First thing, I'm Rashpal from AL-AQSA Carpets ( The company I work at) I would just like to say when I first started of using WordPress, it was such a relief for me. It was such a user friendly website/hosting. I could set it up in less than half an hour rather than using my competitors. Also it manage to boost my website for my company as it helps the searchabiility at Google too. Also wordpress sites are so mobile friendly. It is not too heavy on the mobile and it loads up fast.

What do you dislike?

Just that most of the wordpress sites looks the same, but you can easily overcome this by customizing themes and playing around with web design overall. Also, sometimes hackers tend jeopardize your website by sending some malicious codes but this can be easily overcome if you're actually good at what you do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say just go for it! It is such an easy way of developing a website, matter of fact you could do it in minutes! It is that easy. You could select your basic theme to start with, which is good enough! And you could customize it at anytime.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It's up in my title. It helps me solve my E-STORE difficulties, and easy to manage my E-STORE.

Wordpress is one of the most complete and easy to use CMS, it is very powerful and has all the necessary features to create quality websites easily and quickly.

Wordpress is very easy to install, its installation only takes 5 minutes, and adapts adapts to any idea or project that we may have, it has many free templates that we can download and customize.

There are thousands of plugins available for wordpress that we can download and install that improve the functionality of any website we can build.

Wordpress also has a large community of developers and partners around the world and that is why there is always a lot of information on the web that helps us solve any problem we may have when using wordpress.

What do you dislike?

One of the disadvantages of wordpress is that they are usually attacked with malicious codes that in some cases can damage our websites, that is why we must install security plugins to prevent any attack.

It is easy to install and configure, and can be learned in a short time. If you want to start creating websites, you should definitely use WordPress.

"Wordpress makes creating a website so much easier"

What do you like best?

I like the installation process the best. Once you get into wordpress they help you understand how it works and how to use it properly. Wordpress is also community driven, there are so many choices of plugins and themes right out of the box to deploy your website as quick as possible.

What do you dislike?

Since it is community driven I don't believe everything is always reviewed by wordpress itself. You need to trust the user who has created something to integrate in your website and that can put you on edge. Other than that there has been no issues.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would definitely suggest wordpress if you're looking for an easy & straight forward way to owning a website. There's plenty of guides online and not hard to learn at all.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Instead of hiring someone to build your website or learning to code the base of a website, you can just deploy it quickly with wordpress. I have made a lot of websites we needed using wordpress and they all come out wonderfully. You will have to learn about how wordpress works to make a better website but it's completely worth it and very easy.

"A Bit Picky, but Still Great"

What do you like best?

I like the simplicity with which one can edit websites. I have very little experience with coding, though I understand the gist of it. Using this program lets even the most unskilled coder contribute to website structure and style.

What do you dislike?

WordPress, with all its simplicity, can be a bit frustrating to use. It's simplicity makes it a bit ambiguous with different features. The pickiness of some of its features is frustrating for even long time users who I work with.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For individuals who have litte experience with programming, WordPress allows a certain level of ease with creativity.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Creating engaging media for our department's website is the biggest problem we are solving. WordPress, though a bit picky, makes for great looking websites! WIth a variety of features, we set ourselves apart from other departments, giving our website a unique feel and flow which many individuals can feel good about.

What do you dislike?

I have had a bad experience with some add-ons, since they ruined my website, and some themes can be difficult to install if you do not have the basic knowledge of web programming.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wordpress is designed so that anyone can easily create your website. If you want to start in the world of web pages, you must start with WordPress.

" Beautiful designs, powerful features and the freedom to build what you want. WordPress is free and "

What do you like best?

1. It is easily scalable. Whether your website has just a couple of thousand visits per month or per hour, this well-optimized management system is the perfect option to meet and exceed any expectations.

2. WordPress is open source. It is improved thanks to the updates carried out by thousands of members of your community from different points of the world geography.

3. Wide catalog of available themes. Both free (in the official repository) and paid (on developer websites).

4. Infinity plugins. If you need to add additional features such as surveys, statistics, social networks or anything you can imagine, download any of the plugins always from the official website WordPress.org, but taking into account their reliability, they may contain security holes that put in danger the stability of the site.

What do you dislike?

1. You have to have certain knowledge to get the most out of it. If you want to squeeze all the features of the platform and you are not an expert, it is best to consult a specialized company that is responsible for developing this task.

2. Value other alternatives if you are going to start a trade. If you have in mind to set up an online store, although WordPress could be an excellent option, it is necessary the analysis by a consultant.

3. The themes do not allow total personalization. If what you need is a completely exclusive issue, then the best option is to hire this service from a specialized company.

Besides installing the iThemes Security plugin, which offers more than 30 solutions to protect WordPress in every way, I recommend a service that I discovered recently and that brings WordPress security to new levels: Sucuri.

"Decent website builder"

What do you like best?

I like that wordpress is easy to install additional plugins to help optimize our website. There are so many to choose from! Wordpress works pretty well with most plugins, such as woocommerce and smush. Wordpress also has a few different website builder views, depending on your experience to make it a bit easier to maneuver. If you don't know code, then you can use a physical builder to see exactly what you are doing. I like that. I don't work in code, so the visual builder has been a huge help for me.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes wordpress is hard to figure out. We had an issue with our online shopping cart and could not figure out what the issue was. When a customer would go to checkout on the website, they would get an error message, but the order would go through on the backside of the website. So they would duplicate their order. We eventually figured it out. It was a conflicting plugin. Also, they charge to help you. I'm not a fan of that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need help with wordpress, they charge for technical support. That's my main conflict. I'd like help without having to pay $50 for a 10min conversation.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Helping put our products and company online. Wordpress is our website builder. We wouldn't have a website without wordpress. Plus, wordpress allows us to put our products online for purchase too! So, our customers can shop our products no matter the time of day.

"Wordpress helps with the advertising side of my buisness."

What do you like best?

Wordpress is a very easy to use website which you enables you to create stunning websites for your buissness without the use of a coding person. There is no need for you to be a techy person to use wordpress its very easy and can be used by anyone.

What do you dislike?

One thing I dislike about wordpress is that when you create a website there is not that much options on domain names. For example if you wanted to create a website without purchising a .com domain you would have to use their long domain name .wordpress.com

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your company dosent have the money to hire a person to do a basic website use word press

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wordpress has enabled the buissnes to create landing pages for our website. When a person clicks a button from our main website they wil be lead to our wordpress site. This makes the company not loose money on purchising a secound domain name.

"Weblog, CMS, and Application Framework All in One"

What do you like best?

WordPress is open source. While the "free" aspect of that is great, it's also amazing to be able to extend it and modify to suit our needs. Combined with a well designed theme, WordPress has allowed us to evolve our web presence quickly but at a pace that suits us. Its extensibility also allows us to distribute our content generation, so that each user is responsible for his or her part of the public website.

What do you dislike?

Some of the older WordPress APIs can be a bit tricky, but once you get used to the "WordPress way" of doing things, it's not so bad.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Jump in and do it. It's free, so set up a few test sites and play around. See what you can accomplish. Install some plugins and when you run up against their limitations, start building your own.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WordPress powers our district website and intranet. We are able to deploy new web applications quickly and easily as WordPress plugins. WordPress is so extensible that I've come to view it almost as an application framework and not just a CMS. Since we control the output, we were also able to significantly increase our accessibility score, which was very important to us, because we want our content to be available to anyone.

"Good For Blogging & Developing Your Business"

What do you like best?

*It allows different website capabilities, including use of various plug-ins, as well as WordAds, Survey, widgets to improve the website structure. If you have bit more experience in the HTML, CSS and javascript, you can customize and make the website more easy. In scale of 1 out of 10 for ease, I would say you would need to learn few HTML codes to really make new changes.

What do you dislike?

*Complexity

*Configuration - It requires a lot of control, change, and management

Recommendations to others considering the product

You can choose other website provider like wix or ecommerce site, but they are predetermined or is more on drag & Drop base. If you are good with HTML and some coding, I would recommend WordPress First.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Blogging. I use it on regular basis and write articles, and develop content.

I realized the network of readers, and number of people trusting WordPress is quite simply great.

"Probably the most comprehensive and used Content Management System"

What do you like best?

I'm no developer, but our developers seem to be able to do/build/create any feature or functionality imaginable, which makes it a very flexible platform for building websites.

What do you dislike?

It can get complex, but when you have clients with a complex portfolio of products, or that require embedding third-party solutions and create a complex navigation menu, Wordpress is your best choice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Unless you're an e-commerce website, in which case I would recommend you to explore Woo Commerce with Wordpress or to go to Shopify directly, I would say that Wordpress is THE platform to build websites for any serious company.

There are even tutorials online to build a DIY Wordpress website. Highly recommended

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

All of our client's websites run on Wordpress. Our designers can pretty much dream innovative design and our front and back-end developers can make it happen. Our clients are very happy.

The free themes and plugin also should have support and updates like paid themes and plugin does. The wordpress should be fast and optimize why need plugin to do that. Google analytic official plugin is not there. It should be more secure, fast, and fully free.

"To design or not to design"

What do you like best?

To design or not to design, that is the question. Wordpress is a great tool if you know how to use it. For someone who runs their 501c3 website I find it difficult to maneuver around as I don't have the training or expertise in Wordpress. I will say, it is easy to copy things that have already been done. I.E. if there is a form that has already been created, it is very simple to duplicate and add fields to the duplicated forms. The same goes for pages and sliders. Wordpress is great if you have a general knowledge on how to work websites.

What do you dislike?

That being said, if you don't have a general knowledge you may be lost. Our web developer created templates on how to use things that may be more difficult to figure out of your own. If I didn't have these tutorials I would be lost.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would recommend taking an online course to further your knowledge on Wordpress. For those who may not have the budget for this like us, there are great webinars available.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Wordpress allows me to manage our website on my own without having to pay my developer for all of the work we need done on it. It makes it easier to utilize our website day to day which allows our donors to more easily keep up with what is happening around the House and allows them to donate right on our website.

" wordpress.org The platform at its best. Create and do magic"

What do you like best?

WordPress is one of the wonders of the 21st century that has allowed millions of people to have their web, flexible and fast, in a short time. I love how I can do everything professionally and show the best of my work. WHAT I LIKE THE MOST OF THIS PROGRAM IS: -We have absolute control over what we publish on our website, altering the code, adding extensions, including scripts, mixing technologies, including a store ... there is no limit.

- We can contract external services to offer extra features, such as CDNs, advertising networks and many more.

- We have access to the files, the database and the administration panel of our server. So the project is "more our", since we can have a copy of the site saved locally.

What do you dislike?

what I do not like : - We have to hire a hosting service, in addition to buying the domain. Hosting can be very expensive when we have tens of thousands of visits a day.

- We must constantly worry about security, possible malware infection, server crashes and other problems that require opening a ticket with the hired hosting service.

- The loading speed of the website depends on the service contracted, what we pay and the origin of the visitor, being necessary to think of alternatives and CDN solutions to improve numbers in this regard.

- We must keep the WordPress version updated, with automatic or manual updates that must be done with great care, since sometimes they are not compatible with the web that we have installed.

Recommendations to others considering the product

without a doubt I recommend it to all, even though you have many tools you can feel overwhelmed but without doubt if you want to be successful in internet work and have control of everything mentioned above, use this tool you can do your things in a professional manner .

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has helped me a lot since I work from home, it has made things easier for me and in a professional way I have developed all my business strategies. since with WordPress.org we have total control in:

Design

Themes

Content

Monetization

Performance

"Rapidly create self-managing websites"

What do you like best?

Good content management options, I can save images and have them in my personal library, it also allows me to easily edit menus, headers and pages, I can install add-ons and functions so that my website is interactive.

What do you dislike?

I have had problems with installation of some templates, as well as some add-ons, besides I can say that the forms of electronic mails must be configured well since they can be used to send spam.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It is a very complete content management system that is constantly updated, I recommend it since it is very safe and easy to install.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

I have used wordpress for more than 2 years and it has been very helpful since I have been able to develop numerous applications and web pages, which are easy to manage, thanks to its novel interface that allows me to edit almost any element.

""Well, nice and free, what are you waiting for to install wordpress on your website?""

What do you like best?

The power that Wordpress has is infinite, it allows you to create anything, both a blog that is what it is developed for, but with the thousands of plugins you can create up to an e-commerce store and this is not just here, anything that does not you can imagine it can be done perfectly in wordpress thanks to the millions of plugins that are available for it, both free and paid.

The theme of the templates is as extensive as that of the plugins, every day new themes of payment or free of any subject (kitchen, transport, cinema, construction), SEO is also a favorable point to use wordpress.

What do you dislike?

The login option can be quite sophisticated and sometimes, if a user forgets their password, it can take them a while to recover access to their account.

It is a little difficult to manage our system through an iphone or an iPad, you are missing some kind of mobile application to be able to manage it, such as "plesk" that allows you to manage everything through it application.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you need to make a website install WordPress because it is a mature, free, open source and very versatile platform to create websites.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

Using Wordpress we have everything under our control and we can customize anything, install new plugins, themes, etc ... and increase the capabilities of our server.

"wordpress.org within reach and innovation"

What do you like best?

WordPress is a CMS (content manager) that allows you to publish written content, photos, multimedia and many more on the internet. It is ultimately a platform to create websites (whether blogs, forums, corporate pages, online stores. WordPress is free and free, it is distributed through a GPL license as well as being made and supported by a community of independent developers. WordPress.org, allows you to download the platform in zip format, freely and you already have

wordpress. in reference to the web where we downloaded the program. But in reality it is WordPress, the authentic, genuine and original.What I like about this, is that you have the possibility of doing any type of project such as: magazines, personal blog, virtual stores. among others. You can use any type of plugin either by downloading them or by purchasing them. being able to edit a code of any file is very interesting all you can do with wordpress.org

What do you dislike?

what I do not like is that the documentation is more focused on developers than users. It is true that we have the codex, which is like the WordPress bible, but at the user level, the WordPress.com documentation is more complete.

Manual updates of plugins and themes. If you use themes that can not be updated automatically, you will need to be careful and perform the updates manually.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend it has helped me a lot in my projects

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It has benefited me a lot, the use of this allows me to create what is necessary for the development of my projects, I feel comfortable

"High functionality for personal blogs or company websites"

What do you like best?

I appreciate how easy Wordpress is to learn from. As someone who built her first website only a couple years ago, Wordpress has so much versatility. Since starting to use Wordpress, I've built a personal blog, worked on a friend's e-commerce blog, and worked on my company's website. It's a popular enough platform that has a lot of functionality for personal or professional use.

What do you dislike?

There is a bit of a learning curve, like with most platforms. If I was to advise someone to use Wordpress, I would let them know it takes a little time to get used to the platform and all its capability, but once you're comfortable with it, you have so many options for what to build or make. :)

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're considering it for a project, give yourself plenty of time to familiarize yourself with the platform, especially if it's your first time building a website.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It looks really professional to have your own domain, and it creates a sense of legitimacy with any business or personal brand. When I tell people my domain it makes me appear more established than someone who has a domain attached to a platform.

"Useful for multi-user blogging"

What do you like best?

I like that WordPress.org makes it easy to have multiple contributors to a blog or website. The program is also very easy to navigate, and there are wonderful features for scheduling, SEO, readability, and more.

What do you dislike?

I dislike that there are many features, as it can be a bit overwhelming at times. I wish there were more options for customizing your dashboard and features. Additionally, I wish there were some way to receive email updates or notifications when the status of a post has changed from pending to published.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Use Word Press if you need to post content from multiple users, and need to be able to edit before those posts are published! Also, use if you are interested in better SEO...the SEO rating system is great and so useful!

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

WordPress.org allows my business to have multiple contributors on one publication. We are also able to check SEO, readability scores, edit posts before publishing, scheduling posts, and more.

"Industry standard, but not ideal"

What do you like best?

The biggest strength of WordPress is its popularity. With almost 30% of web powered by WP, it is the industry standard for CMS. It has been always very easy to present the CMS to the client and they never had any troubles with it, since there is thousands of tutorials on WP content editing.

As a developer, it helped me build websites fast thanks to thousands of templates and plugins.

What do you dislike?

The system is build on a quite outdated technology which is reflected in the site performance. When a large number of plugins is used, the website becomes very slow. In page transitions are quite hard to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Try to use a free template first and see if you like the working environment of WordPress. If so, make an investment in your site.

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

It is a ready solution ideal for building a quick project where time and budget is more important than quality.

"An excellent service for all types of customers"

What do you like best?

I've tried some content managers before but none I liked as much as WordPress, this service has many factors in its favor.

The things that I liked the most are:

- Manage the content that you upload to your web page in a dynamic, simple and easy way, so much so that anyone could do it.

-You can manage the users within your web page, such as administrators, publishers, publishers or only users.

-The infinity of plugins with which the platform counts, these allow you to improve the possibility of conversion of your page, identify all the web traffic you receive, design subscription templates, integrate shopping carts, among many more things!

- I love the integration you have with other platforms like sendinblue, aweber, google adsense, woocommerce, shopify, among many more, you can actually integrate with practically all the tools you need!

wordpress also presents a simple and easy to use, when I started on the platform I was really a little disoriented, but once I got familiar and learned more about the platform, it was really easy to design new pages

What do you dislike?

There are few things that have displeased me, one of them is that if you make some mistake within the configuration then you will have to fit it through the cpanel and it is really a bit complicated to do this, also sometimes I have some problems with some users who can not visualize the website

Recommendations to others considering the product

I recommend the use of wordpress for its ease of use and its simplicity, second for the incredible web designs it offers, third for the integration with other platforms and fourth for the infinity of plugins offered

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

We have solved the problems of web design of the page of our company, customer management, sales and content management

"Wordpress the best alternative in the current market!"

What do you like best?

In the past, before having my company and my website I had used different content managers such as blogger and blogspot, in this type of content managers it was difficult for me to design and manage my site to my liking, but then I met wordpress.org. I must say that at the beginning I felt a bit confused and stressed because it is not easy to learn how to use the platform at the beginning, but after you familiarize yourself with it and know it a little more, you realize that it is really simple, and this is precisely one of the things I LIKE MOST, I do not have the problems before, with prosperity it is very easy to mount my page in a couple of days, besides the predetermined topics are very good and are totally editable, another of the things I like is that there are paid themes but very nice to look at, also wordpress has an infinity of plugins for example SEO plugins, plugos of heat maps to see the hot places of your web page,

plugins for subscriptions to the page that can perfectly be configured with a messaging manager like sendinblue or aweber, also wordpress presents a main panel where you can see all the information of your blog in real time and this is incredible! I'm talking about you can see the comments to your post, moderate them, you can see the activity of your page, the visits and with certain plugins you can even know where the people who visit your blog have clicked.

in general I like everything from wordpress, I see it very simple to use and very professional!

What do you dislike?

I can not really say anything bad about wordpress, it's my main content manager and I love it, maybe the only thing I do not like is when an error occurs on your web page you lose everything, you have to fix it with cpanel.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are thinking of changing to wordpress.org definitely do not hesitate, is the best content manager, easy to use once you learn and get familiar with the product and has an integration with other incredible platforms, in addition to having beautiful and editable themes.
