"The best bloggin even webpage solution in the market"

What do you like best?

The simplicity of use, the large number of functionalities that allow some who do not know much programming to create a website or a blog with a perfect image. Easy to improve your site with the thousands of plugins generated by the huge community that there is about it.

What do you dislike?

For really interesting things or you pay them a lot more monthly than it costs something similar in other providers or you auto-host them in your own hosting (option that I recommend)

"Bueno Bonito y gratuito. ¿A que esperas para instalar wordpress en su sitio web?"

What do you like best?

El poder que tiene wordpress es infinito, te permite crear cualquier cosa, tanto un blog que es para lo que esta desarrollado, pero con los miles de plugins puedes crear hasta una tienda e commerce y esto no queda aquí tan solo, cualquier cosa que no te imaginas se puede hacer perfectamente en wordpress gracias a los millones de plugins que hay disponibles para el mismo, tanto gratuitos como de pago.

El tema de las plantillas es tan extenso como el de los plugins, cada día salen nuevos temas de pago o gratuitos de cualquier tema (cocina, transporte, cine, construcción), el SEO también es un punto favorable para utilizar wordpress.

What do you dislike?

La opción de inicio de sesión puede ser bastante sofisticada y, a veces, si algún usuario olvida su contraseña, les puede llevar un tiempo recuperar el acceso a su cuenta.

Es un poco difícil poder administrar nuestro sistema a través de un iphone o un ipad, se echa en falta algún tipo de aplicación de móvil para poder hacer la gestión del mismo, tipo como "plesk" que te permite manejar todo a través de la misma aplicación.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Si necesitas hacer un sitio web instale WordPress porque es una plataforma madura, gratuita, de código abierto y muy versátil para crear sitios web.

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

Utilizando Wordpress tenemos todo bajo nuestro control y podemos personalizar cualquier cosa, instalar nuevos plugins, temas, etc... y aumentar las capacidades de nuestro servidor.

"Simplemente, la mejor plataforma web."

What do you like best?

He desarrollado muchos sitios web usando wordpress. Me gusta cómo no estás sujeto al sitio web. Hay muchas opciones disponibles que puede instalar generalmente con un clic y generalmente de forma gratuita para agregar características para hacer que su sitio web sea único del resto de los sitios web. Me gusta cómo puede instalar diferentes temas de proveedores externos para utilizar las diferentes opciones versátiles. Y si no hay una opción que no esté disponible para usted que le guste, generalmente puede encontrar a alguien dispuesto a programar la función que desea que desee. Este servicio se puede utilizar para blogs o sitios web o puede configurar un comercio electrónico. Es muy cierto y muy fácil de usar. Desde que se volvió tan popular, hay personas que están dispuestas a ayudarlo sin tener que pagar los altos precios que la compañía quiere cobrarle por usar sus empleados expertos. Finalmente, me gusta cómo tienen un campo de entrenamiento de wordpress de 30 días al que la persona puede asistir de forma gratuita para familiarizarse más con el software.

What do you dislike?

Wordpress puede ser intimidante si nunca han visto el back-end de un sitio web. Creo que debería tener una comprensión básica de cómo HTML 5.0 y CSS existen juntos. A partir de ahí, hay scripts y códigos que puede ingresar y manipular para obtener el sitio web como lo desee. Esto puede ser un inconveniente porque hay muchas personas que usan WordPress porque tiene una gran reputación. Pero si este usuario no es un experto técnico sin un conocimiento básico de cómo usar una computadora o al menos leer un código HTML básico, el usuario se perderá y necesitará ayuda. Esta persona podría registrarse para el servicio, luego darse cuenta de que hay otros competidores que son más fáciles de usar y pueden costar la mitad del precio de lo que ya han gastado. No conozco el proceso de reembolso o cuánto tiempo tiene, pero me suscribiría a la versión gratuita antes de entrar en algo avanzado.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Diría que la compañía debería ser más competitiva con sus precios porque hay otros competidores que ofrecen wordpress por mucho menos cuando usa su servicio en comparación con el sitio web original de wordpress.

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

Wordpress is a great way to get up a free website especially if you want to start a blog. I wanted to start a blog with how my business is going and the things that I need to accomplish in order to succeed. I have also started a blog documenting my puppies progress of when and what she is doing from the time that she is growing. The free version is limited to 3.5GB for videos and pictures, but there are other ways to link to your blog without using that space. I can't imagine writing a file worth 3.5GB. The benefits is since its a world wide used software that there are many people that can help you out or find advice by googleing the issue. If the product isn't used much, there isnt much documentation that you can find on the web. Wordpress is widely used so there are plenty of forums that people are involved in and can offer you free advice or at least point you in the right direction.

"El mejor CMS que te puedes encontrar"

What do you like best?

Tan simplista y fácil de aprender a usar. Wordpress tiene muchas opciones para hacer su sitio web asombroso y detallado. He usado otros en el pasado y no se comparan en absoluto. Todas las opciones del lado izquierdo son fáciles de navegar. My Site es genial - el editor de páginas es hermoso y fácil de entender. Las páginas y las entradas de blog se crean usando un editor WYSIWYG (así que no es una interfaz visual de arrastrar y soltar, que muchos usuarios pueden preferir). Afortunadamente el editor WYSIWYG está muy bien hecho.

What do you dislike?

Teaching myself is a slower process, but overall easy to catch on. The only issues I really have is learning what each thing does and how it effects my site. But overall its self explanatory. My Site is really simple. As soon as you to use some of the advanced features— for example create a store or add a poll— you have swap over to the WP Admin

Recommendations to others considering the product

Recomendaría totalmente WP a cualquiera que esté considerando usarlo. Las mejoras a mi sitio son increíbles.

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

Wordpress ayuda a mi negocio a funcionar sin problemas, opciones detalladas para hacer un mejor sitio. Wordpress tiene muchas opciones para hacer su sitio web asombroso y detallado. He usado otros en el pasado y no se comparan en absoluto. Puede perder mucho tiempo contestando preguntas por teléfono. Y si escuchas muchas de las mismas preguntas todos los días, hay una oportunidad. Puede mostrar esas preguntas -y sus respuestas- en su sitio web utilizando el plugin WordPress FAQ (preguntas más frecuentes). El plugin HTML5 Responsive FAQ le permite crear grupos de preguntas frecuentes, ordenarlas por categoría y personalizar su apariencia. Esto le proporcionará un recurso útil para sus clientes, le ayudará a atraer más tráfico a su sitio y a colgar el teléfono.

"El mejor sistema de gestión de contenidos para crear blogs"

What do you like best?

Wordpress ha liderado el camino en software de gestión de contenidos durante años y continuará durante muchos más. La comunidad de soporte es excepcional y Wordpress es la plataforma más flexible disponible desde el nivel de entrada de sitios web alojados en Wordpress.com hasta una versión autoalojada de Wordpress.org.

Como plataforma de blogs es superior y muy amigable con los motores de búsqueda.

Lo mejor de todo, es que Wordpress es totalmente gratuito aunque existen plugins y temas para personalizarlo que son de pago.

What do you dislike?

Tienes que estar al tanto de los plugins para asegurarte de que no han sido abandonados, lo que puede causar problemas implicando el tener que buscar actualizaciones semanalmente y reemplazar los plugins que dejan de tener soporte para tener todo a punto.

Por otra parte, la instalación requiere ciertos conocimientos de alojamiento web, instalación de CMS y bases de datos. No es algo malo pero hay que tenerlo en cuenta.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wordpress es una gran opción a escoger para tener tu propio blog. A pesar de existir multiples plataformas para la creación de estos, Wordpress destaca por su sencillez y por ser muy personalizable. Si quieres tener tu propio blog Wordpress te dejará muy buen sabor de boca.

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

Hemos usado este sistema de gestión de contenidos (CMS) para realizar el blog de nuestra empresa. Utilizando Wordpress tenemos todo bajo control y podemos personalizar cualquier cosa, instalar nuevos plugins y aumentar las capacidades de nuestro sistema.

"A must for small business success"

What do you like best?

Simplicity. Using Wordpress you can set up your own corporate website in a matter of minutes. The number of plugins to customize our web and the option to transform it into an electronic commerce, thanks for example to the easy install Woocommerce plugin, makes this tool the cornerstone of any new project.

What do you dislike?

Mainly the insecurity of existing countless websites created with the same base, Wordpress. Being such a widely distributed program, it is a great incentive for hackers to find bugs or security holes that allow them to take control of the software or even the machine where it is hosted.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just give it a chance and you will use it for all your business sites

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

WordPress allows me to establish a simple landing page where my potential clients find all the information regarding my business, how it works, what it costs and, in addition, it serves as an information and communication point to solve doubts with these through a simple form of programmed contact.

"WordPress"

What do you like best?

Lo más importante que este mundo sabe es que WordPress es el mejor cuando se trata de blogs. Los mejores blogs del mundo comenzaron sus negocios y soluciones solo con WordPress. Todos tenían una visión de que su problema de alguna solución web debe ser resuelto. Y wordpress fue la columna vertebral para ellos.

A medida que el año evolucionó y la tecnología mejoró, el equipo de wordpress trabajó duro para que no solo fuera un sitio de blogs y una solución para todas las necesidades de su sitio web. Así que crearon los mejores complementos y personalización de temas, widgets de plantillas y todo. Ofrecen también soluciones de comercio electrónico que serán mucho mejores que muchos servicios pagos y la solución de comercio electrónico también es totalmente gratuita.

¿Hay alguien listo para pagar si algo es gratis y confiable? Wordpress ahora es como un lugar donde puedes cumplir todos tus sueños cuando se trata de cualquier sitio web o solución web. Sirve y tiene plantillas de temas para todo tipo de industrias. Son los mejores en proporcionar una solución de blogging a pesar de que otros sistemas cms emergentes están llegando a la competencia ahora.

Felicitaciones al equipo, ustedes salvaron muchas vidas de personas en la red mundial

What do you dislike?

Wordpress tiene actualizaciones de versiones y varios problemas de complementos, ya que no funcionan correctamente si las actualizaciones no se realizan con regularidad.

"Un gestor de contenidos de código abierto increíble..."

What do you like best?

La gestión de contenidos y permisos de usuarios nos permite distribuir el trabajo de actualización de la página web entre distintos departamentos de nuestra empresa, además la cantidad de códigos disponibles en forma de plugins o temas y artículos de soporte disponibles a una búsqueda de distancia lo hacen indiscutiblemente mejor que la competencia.

What do you dislike?

Wordpress fue inicialmente creado para una plataforma de blogs y creció muchísimo desde entonces, las funciones que fueron siendo añadidas lo hicieron algo "pesado" y no añadieron optimizaciones como una buena caché así que dependes de un servidor muy potente y/o plugins de terceros para que la página se cargue rápidamente.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Pillate un buen servidor con opcache y instales un buen plugin de cache, un CDN también ayuda.

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

Por un lado la disponibilidad de nuestros productos en la web de una forma que los buscadores puedan indexar bien, por otro lado la distribución del trabajo de actualización tanto de los productos cuanto de las noticias / información de la empresa, antes centrado en una sola persona.

"Ideal for Small & Medium Businesses & Blogs"

What do you like best?

WordPress.org platform is great because it allows more customization than the WordPress.com - both theme-wise as well as plugins, which makes it a perfect CMS for websites for small and medium businesses. Plus, it's cheap :)

What do you dislike?

To be honest, there aren't many things I dislike about WordPress. Possibly at the first glance, it might be overwhelming, but at the same time, the navigation is intuitive, so it's easy to quickly learn.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you aren't sure this platform is for you, you can try the free version at the wordpress.com - and see if you like it. There are fewer options for customization, but at the same time, there are fewer things to "break" therefore giving you the freedom to try.

The next step would be to actually move your website (or create a new one) on WordPress.org and enjoy the ease of usage.

Another recommendation: don't be afraid to try. WordPress is great because it allows you to customize your website and easily preview it even before you hit publish, so that even if something goes wrong, your users won't know :)

Finally, with the themes available, WordPress.org is convenient for both personal blogs as well as business websites because you can have a custom front page which would have all the same info that

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

It's a great resource for a website creation mainly because of its simplicity in installation (most hosting providers offer 1-click-installation for WP sites) and maintenance. Also, the themes are numerous - both custom and free.

"La forma mas rapida y practica de hacer tu web corporativa"

What do you like best?

La gestión del contenido y de los usuarios es fantástica en Wordpress, principalmente si comparada con nuestra solución anterior, Adobe Muse. Es increíble considerar que fue originalmente desarrollado para una plataforma de blogs, ya que hoy es mucho más que eso. Sus frecuentes actualizaciones hacen que solucionar posibles problemas y adaptarse a nuevos reglamentos sean muy rapido y facil (por ejemplo, la nueva ley de proteccion de datos)

What do you dislike?

Tiene sus limitaciones, aunque la mayoría se soluciona con plugins específicos, no tiene buenas herramientas para SEO o una buena caché incluida, lo que es aun peor si consideras que se trata de una plataforma que demanda bastante recursos del servidor, OPCache es MUY recomendable.

Recommendations to others considering the product

La mayoría de los servidores ofrecen instalacion automatica desde el panel del cliente... usen un buen servidor con version actual del PHP y OPCache habilitado para que no se quede lenta la pagina.

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

La gestión descentralizada del contenido de nuestra página web, integrada con nuestros blogs y plataforma de e-mail marketing.

"Wordpress - The best of the best for website management."

What do you like best?

The fact that it is open source. I mean 10s of thousands of developers create plugins and enhancements. Alot of which are free or affordable. I work as a wordpress developer, and wordpress makes it very easy for me to be a longterm user.

What do you dislike?

Its backend isnt the prettiest .. I know this is a small thing, but when trying to teach clients how to use it, a prettier backdrop wound be ideal

Recommendations to others considering the product

I mean it is the gold standard. I'm still unsure why developers use other platforms than this. The best thing about it is that it aint going anywhere. When you leanr it, you know it is the standard.

"Great for making a professional-quality media website"

What do you like best?

I was able to make my entire website in a single day using this platform and it came out great! There are TONS of beautiful themes available, both premium and free, for whatever kind of site you want to create with TONS of plugins to help you do just about whatever you could possibly want to do, from displaying all kinds of media, opt-ins for a mailing list, sharing, anything. It's just incredible how much can be done with Wordpress and you don't even have to have any experience with web design, it's very straightforward.

What do you dislike?

You need to manually update your plugins and all your themes, so it is necessary to log in regularly to do that (otherwise you can create a security risk for your website).

Recommendations to others considering the product

You don't have to pay for expensive themes, there are plenty of beautiful, professional quality themes for free, just look around. Plugins too. Lots of great free plugins!

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

I have been able to create a media website with Wordpress with a video introduction. It has allowed me the freedom of running my own website without having to have someone else do it and I can have complete control over how it looks, what it includes, etc.

"User Friendly With Many Options"

What do you like best?

Wordpress is a platform where it is easy to use yet looks professional once submitted. The entire team can work together on Wordpress without much of a learning curve to create high quality information. The SEO tools are exceptionally useful for making sure the post is google friendly as we all know that is the most important factor. It is also easy to edit old posts and re-categorize if need be. Wordpress is probably the most user friendly software I have used as I do not have a web development back ground.

What do you dislike?

I wish some of the templates were slightly less expensive. However in the grand scheme of things Wordpress is overall affordable for the most part. We found a simple theme we likes that was affordable and fit what we needed it for. We primarily use Wordpress for an informational blog on the products we sell. It works well for this purpose.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wordpress is a user friendly interface with loads of custom options. It is great to be able to open up Wordpress and immediately get to work. It is easy to submit new posts and the SEO tools keep you on the right track. It is also easy to edit old posts, re categorize and delete posts. It is great to use a tool where the entire team can work together to put quality information out on the web. I highly recommend this platform.

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

We love the SEO Tools. This feature in completely valuable to us. It is great to know how to make the blog more SEO friendly and be able to tweak it before the final product is submitted.

"Excellent"

What do you like best?

Once you get the feel for it it is very easy to use and to create what you want to create. With one other guy at my company, we were able to work together and build our company's two websites very easily. Both websites took around a month for us to do total, including the time it took for both of use to become familiar with the product, writing and designing all the content, and tweaking the product after we were live.

What do you dislike?

It can be difficult to make quick changes to a page or element. For instance, spotting a missing comma on a page requires entering the editor, scrolling to the appropriate spot, and then making the change, saving the page and reloading the actual webpage. There are also some instances where it is difficult to figure out to change a section in general. For instance, editing the footer on our page involves several different steps (which is partially due to our inexperience when initially setting up the site).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Do it. It's good.

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

Creating a website and managing an ongoing blog. Using the plugins we were able to optimize the pages for SEO as well as simply integrate other tracking tools like 'hotjar'. The Yoast SEO plugin, in particular, has been exceptional for providing us with recommendations for both SEO and the readability of the page, something that will have a hand in making all of the content both great for computers to read (SEO) and for humans to read.

"Need a website or blog? Start here with wordpress."

What do you like best?

The major thing that this world knows is that wordpress is the best when it comes to blogging. The top blogs in the world started there business and solutions with wordpress only. They all had one vision that their problem of some web solution needs to be solved. And wordpress was the back bone for them.

As year's evolved and technology improved the wordpress team worked hard for making it not just a blogging site and a solution for all your website needs. So they came up with all the best plugins and customisation of themes, templates widgets and everything. They provide eCommerce solutions also which will be far better than many paid services and the ecommerce solution is absolutely free also.

Is there any one ready to pay if something is free and trustworthy. Wordpress is now like a one place where you can fulfil all your dreams when it comes to any website or web solution. It serves and has themes templates for all sort of industries. The are the best in providing blogging solution even though other emerging cms systems are coming to the competition now.

Kudos to the team, you guys saved many peoples lives in the world wide web.

What do you dislike?

Wordpress has version updates and several plugin issues as they don't work properly if updates are not done regularly.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It has everything at your finger tips when it comes to website. So please do use wordpress if your are starting the practise of doing websites.

"Makes it possible to have a professional web presence without being a web pro"

What do you like best?

It is simple and straightforward enough for someone with little experience creating their own website to make a good, acceptable website in a short amount of time. There are tons of beautiful, free themes and plugins and it is possible to get your site up and running that day, if not within a couple of hours. In fact, the sheer breadth of free themes means I can quickly and easily update my website to a new design whenever I want, and the vast number of plugins means I can include almost any capability I can think of.

What do you dislike?

If you want help you will need to search through the forums. This isn't too much of a "dislike" as I am still able to get help where I need it, but sometimes it can be confusing sorting through all the comments and asking the right questions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Even if you don't know a lot about creating a website it is still relatively simple and straightforward to create a professional looking site using Wordpress.

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

I run most of my business websites on Wordpress, which I host on my own webhost. It is much easier for me to go into each site and do all the updates from within than it is to have to FTP from my computer whenever I want to make a change or adjustment. I can change the entire look of my website simply by changing the theme, and I can add many, many different options through free plugins.

"Most Versatile CMS in the world"

What do you like best?

It is opensource and design with extreme flexibility that makes it adaptable. Wordpress makes it possible to design whatever web platform with ease. As a developer, you concentrate on your business logic while WordPress takes care of the technical and engineering aspects of web design and development.

What do you dislike?

Core CMS and plugin updates are too often and can make it vulnerable to threats and sometimes slow. They started long ago and made it possible for many to afford a dynamic web portal for their complex business engagements.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to start a web development business, WordPress is a good starting point to get the best of web experience. WordPress has a vast range of theme developers like every other CMSs, but it has far more community than others which are responsive and very helpful when it comes to user support. When handing over our projects to clients, WordPress makes more manageable for them with its extended support for the front end editing and WYSIWYG.

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

I develop websites for clients ranging from individuals, governments, corporate organisations in education, health, academia etc. I use it to train new website developers and young IT student at diploma, advanced diploma and degree levels.

"Wordpress as an next step CMS"

What do you like best?

I deploy Wordpress for people who want to manage there own articles on there website. It gives me the ability to turn over features to novice users without worrying about opening up too much functionality.

What do you dislike?

Disk space and reliance on SQL connections can sometimes run slowly on a server. Wordpress sites also sometimes suffer from being quite similar. Without making lots of code changes the navigation. Wordpress work the constant updating and maintaining sites can sometimes be a job to do.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a simple site with a blog or even a simple shop Wordpress will get you up and running within 2 - 4 hours of work.

"Why WordPress should be your Go-To web platform!"

What do you like best?

The simple setup and ease of use for creating webpages, e-stores and blogs. It also makes it very easy to create a professional website for your online business to use. With the addition to include usefull plugins for almost all external services possible. From a simple blog to a large online store, the ways it can be used are endless.

What do you dislike?

If something is wrong in one plugin, your whole site doesn't work (sometimes :)

It would be better to just give an error message before something breaks.

With a good hosting platform however, this problem can easily be solved by creating daily backups.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The more you know before you start building your website, the more you find out that WordPress will help you with your goals. The ease of use is a major plus, and it is fairly easy to create a professional site with great visuals. The plugins that you can use are endless, so you can connect your site with pretty much all services to expand your business.

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

Creating a landing platform for musicians to find all the tips and tricks to start promoting their music online.

Wordpress lets me add all the information in a quick and easy way.

The addition of external services like an email platform or simple analytics is priceless.

Most of the plugins are free to use, if you stick with the free versions.

"A great tool to create a website"

What do you like best?

It's quite easy to use and it allows you to create your own websites. However, it's not something you can do if you don't have previous knowledge in HTML, web design or user experience. If you have this skills Wordpress will be a great tool for you. It will allow you to offer your clients a mid-priced websites which is always good if they can't spend a lot of money in developing a fully customised website.

What do you dislike?

When Wordpress updates its version you'll find that your website might be missing some things or that some things don't look like before. So after an update you always have to check that there hasn't been any problem. There are sometimes incompatibilities with the Wordpress version you have and a plugin you install which is also quite annoying.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're looking for a competitive tool which is quite easy to use (if you have previous knowledge in user experience, design or HTML programming) Wordpress.org might be what you're looking for. It allows you to offer your clients mid-priced websites if they're not looking for a fully customised option. So it's great if they need a website with the basic options. You can always add plugins and then the options are endless.

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

It allows us to create mid-priced websites for clients who are looking for a non fully customised website but that at the same time looks professional. It's a relatively easy to use platform that you can use to create a website without having a lot of knowledge in programming websites.

"I love Wordpress!"

What do you like best?

Wordpress is so simple to use, even if you have very little experience creating a website. It isn't only for blogs, but is incredibly versatile, and can be hosted through your own web hosting company with your own domain name. We use Wordpress for blogs, e-commerce, social pages and even regular old static webpages. You can pay for fancy, professional themes and plugins but it isn't necessary. There are plenty of free options that you can use to create perfectly-functioning, professional looking websites.

What do you dislike?

I like everything about Wordpress. If you don't know exactly what you want your website to do it can get a little overwhelming trying to figure out which theme to pick and which plugins you actually need, but this isn't a flaw with Wordpress, just a personal issue.

Recommendations to others considering the product

This platform is great even if you don't have any website creation experience (but has plenty to keep you happy if you do, too!)

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

I am able to create beautiful, professional websites without any programming knowledge. I am also able to create a wide variety of websites using the same platform, which makes it much easier and simpler to keep up with them alll.

"Wordpress"

What do you like best?

Wordpress has come a long way over the past 10 years when I first ran into it. Where it started as a blog tool it is now a comprehensive content management solution that can run on your own server or in the cloud. I use it for Azure.

What do you dislike?

Since it is so popular, you need to keep up with updates and ensure that security is addressed frequently. When I put wordpress online about 6 months ago I installed security tools (free open source) and saw attempts to break into the site. Once you get security tools in place, it is really nice.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Dig deep into the community support and keep an eye on security. It is very popular so it is a security target- the best implementation I have with it is within Azure. Azure makes for a very easy deployment. I would only recommend the installable version of WordPress is if you have a lot to customize - if not check out wordpress.com

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

The purpose of the site was to have the most functionality at the lowest cost - with templates the sites you can put together rival companies with large budgets. The base Wordpress install is free.

"All our websites are created using the Wordpress platform!"

What do you like best?

Even though I am not a web designer I have been able to create quality websites for our businesses with the Wordpress platform. We have used Wordpress for years and I have been able to grow and develop in my understanding and ability in creating websites by using it. There are so many features; templates, plugins, just about anything you need to run a website can be done with Wordpress, whether you are running a blog, a static business page or an ecommerce website (we do all three!). We host our Wordpress pages through our own webhost with our own domain names and use free templates and plugins for everything. Support is awesome (there's always someone on the forums who can answer your questions) and customization is almost limitless. We have been using Wordpress exclusively for years and will continue to do so likely for many more.

Wordpress is simple enough for a novice to use but powerful enough to do some pretty amazing things with a little bit of know-how.

What do you dislike?

Not a lot of dislikes, honestly. Sometimes it can be time consuming updating all the plugins and themes on all our websites (and sometimes an unsupported theme can break the site) but the overall ease of use kind of overrides that.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Amazing customization options, even if you are unwilling (or unable) to throw money at it. So many great free themes and plugins! It is simple enough for a website novice to create a professional looking site and feature-rich enough for someone who knows what they are doing to create something amazing. I recommend Wordpress to everyone.

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

We are able to host our various business websites at our hosting company using the Wordpress platform and are able to create very different kinds of websites very simply and easily (blogs, static information pages, ecommerce sites). Upkeep is relatively simple in that all I need to do is log in and update every couple of weeks. When our needs change, I am frequently able to find free plugins to address those needs. Updating the look is as simple as changing the Wordpress theme. And with a little css knowledge (which I have gained over the years of using Wordpress) I can make changes to the overall look and feel of the site to make it more personalized.

"Good interface, a little hard to use"

What do you like best?

As far as blog platforms go, Wordpress is probably best for the experienced blogger. There are a lot of features, tools, and cool little niches and add ins.

What do you dislike?

Because of those complexities for the more experienced blogger, I would say it is a little harder to use than, say, Blogspot by Blogger (Google). I found that the site is a little more difficult to navigate. I'm sure if I was more experienced in using all its tools, I would love it. But you definitely need someone to explain that to you.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would say watch all the how-to's and tutorials you can before starting to use Wordpress. It will save you a lot of time and frustration and increase your ease of use. I would also recommend creating your own URL, which is easy to do and very affordable even for personal use. I would also check some third party Wordpress guides and self-help books prior to using Wordpress. It will help you realize just how much you can get out of this software before making any mistakes, and will ultimately save you a world of frustration!

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

I started my company's lifestyle/fashion blog with WordPress. It stimulated more site traffic for my store. That was the primary benefit I received. It also provided a creative outlet for me, and allowed my clients to comment/like/share my stuff, which allowed for great interaction between buyer and seller.

"My experience as a blogger in Wordpress..."

What do you like best?

I love that over the years this platform has been maintained and has evolved over time. Although I mainly use it as a blog, it can be used for web pages properly. They are an accessible, intuitive, comfortable, pleasant and popular option to create a blog, which will have a professional and powerful appearance if we know how to exploit their tools... Other advantages is that it has a version adapted to mobile phones and tablets,

you take care of the programming and you focus on the content of your project, you find a lot of support and technical assistance in the network and has the option of multiuser in which many people can manage the same web.

What do you dislike?

Well, if you compare with the ".com" version, this ".org" version is really much more complex to use, it clearly offers much more complete options, but it is less intuitive and more demanding, although it is worthwhile because it offers great tools for Make websites that suit our needs..

Recommendations to others considering the product

Let's try together this magnificent evolution of Wordpress. It is promising in all its new tools and with all its new scopes.

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

With this version, I solve the essential problem of everyone, in my case as a designer, promote my articles, share my constructive processes, share my experiences, provide inclusive tutorials, etc., in short, create my website or my blog to establish myself with the web world and publicize what I do.

"There's nothing you can't do with Wordpress!"

What do you like best?

I've been using wordpress to build my own sites and clients sites for about 4 years now. And there's no other platform I'd rather use.

The flexibility to build out what ever my client needs and the super affordable cost of the platform is simply untouchable by it's competition.

What do you dislike?

The one problem I run into is handing the site over to clients who want to manage it themselves. There's always a steep learning curve for them. if the dashboard could be more "novice" friendly that would be amazing!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wordpress is virtually limitless! if you want to create sites that are fast, mobile friendly, seo optimized, and completely personalized for your clients, look no further. There's a reason that it's been around so long. It' s solid platform that just keeps getting better!

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

When people tell me "oh, I can't afford to have a great website" I love accepting the challenge and showing them what's possible with wordpress. Before wordpress building out a website took hours of coding, then re-coding to modify and personalize it for the client.

Now I can build out a basic, mobile responsive, SEO friendly, site in an hour!

"Wordpress Hosting Review"

What do you like best?

I like that WordPress gives you the ability to easily edit your website, whether on a computer, mobile phone, or tablet (although it's best to edit on a computer) and I also like that you can edit the HTML code slightly when the limitations of any given template do not work best. For our website, and music company (TimeTravelRecords.com, Time Travel Records) we are using Wordpress.org under 1and1 with the "Chosen WordPress Theme by Compete Themes." For mobile compatibility, I had to edit the code myself, and Wordpress gives you the option to do that.

What do you dislike?

I don't entirely admire some of the limitations in a lot of Wordpress.org themes. The reason why I chose the "Chosen WordPress Theme by Compete Themes" is because it looks the most modern. I wish I could create a website like some of the examples from the AWWWARDS winners, but it's modern enough and does the job.

Recommendations to others considering the product

When using Wordpress.org, it is especially important to chose a theme that matches your company's design identity, and to also backup your site, as well as upgrade your site's php to its maximum allowed version so that wordpress can function at its best. Update wordpress frequently to prevent hackers from getting your password, and change your password frequently.

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

We are currently solving the problem of needing to edit our website on-the-go. Wordpress.org helped us create a single-page website easily, and helps us edit the website wherever we are with its mobile compatibility and liquid features. I've also realized the benefit of Wordpress.org, since it is a blogging content management system that allows you to disable comments, which can be extremely helpful.

"Sencillo software fácil de utilizar para convertirte en tu propio diseñador de páginas web."

What do you like best?

Ésta es una herramienta sencilla, fácil de emplear, intuitiva y amigable. Yo la he empleado en clases para la elaboración de páginas web sencillas con mis estudiantes, para difundir información de muy variado interés, pero particularmente en el campo de la ética y deontología. Me gusta de esta herramienta que puedo montar texto, imágenes, animaciones sencillas. Y se obtiene un resultado elegante y profesional. Compatible con múltiples plantillas descargables, algunas libres otras de bajo costo. Te hacen ser creativo.

What do you dislike?

Para usuarios novatos resulta ser una herramienta de fácil iniciación para diseñar tus propias páginas webs. Para usuarios expertos esta herramienta es poderosa para el diseño de páginas web completas y dinámicas, porque hay un mundo de programación escondido detrás de ella. Razón por la cual se necesitan conocimientos más sofisticados si se quiere una programación avanzada. La documentación online no resulta ser la mas acertada para aprender aspectos complejos de programación.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Es una aplicación fenomenal, para hacer creativo y construir tus propias páginas webs.

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

Particularmente empleé esta herramienta en el campo educativo, para divulgar información al respecto de la ética y la deontología, y obtener de mis estudiantes la lectura del contenido y una matriz de opiniones en este tema. Más recientemente le he usado para construir el portal web de una investigación no terminada aún. Pero el amplio espectro de plantillas disponibles en Internet hacen posible que esta herramienta sea empleada para cualquier propósito.

"The dinosaur of CMSs"

What do you like best?

As a content management system, Wordpress can do practically everything. It's been around for a long time and has such a huge installed base, that it's likely to be with us for a long time to come. Support is good and you can tailor your site to your liking. Wordpress is relatively easy to use and there's an enormous amount of templates to choose from.

What do you dislike?

Wordpress has grown maybe too much. The different widgets that provide additional functionalities also present a security risk as it's quite a chore to keep everything updated. Sometimes managing the site can be unnecessarily complicated. Wordpress sites tend to be, in my experience, also slightly slower than the competition.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wordpress is a solid choice for any web site. However, if your site is relatively small, doesn't need frequent updates or you're not in e-commerce, a lighter CMS might fit the bill better.

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

We run our business web site on Wordpress. Updates and content production are easy on WP.

"Confusing for a first time user but overall excellent"

What do you like best?

I've recently started using Work Press for website hosting and blog publishing. I am neither tech savvy nor a blogger but needed a branded landing page for my online retail business. It has worked so far for that purpose though it is very early in the game and none of my print material has the website on it so far. I hope to keep this up for some time and will see how it plays out over time.

What do you dislike?

It was difficult for me to understand in the beginning exactly what I needed and I jumped in feet first with NO plan. I wish I had the funds to hire a professional because, truly, I bit off more than I could comfortably chew without choking. That said, despite this, it worked out! I consider it a win.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Take the time to LEARN the platform. I do highly recommend having a solid PLAN in place and not just jumping in feet first like I did.

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

Having a WP hosted site means I have a domain to send customers to that allows me to easily funnel to multiple social media platforms.

"A very easy to learn software for beginners in web-creating."

What do you like best?

With WordPress, I am most excited about the ability to edit content of my sites on each of my devices. WordPress has done a tremendous job, adjusting their interface to laptops, tables, and phones.

What do you dislike?

WordPress, unlike other web-creation sites, does not safe your recent changes automatically by default. You have to click safe before leaving a site module, or you need to change the default setting yourself.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are many platforms for website building that offer the same, I however, find WordPress the most reliable and easy to use. Give it a try.

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

I have used WordPress for my personal blog, as well as for my job as a university journalist.

The biggest benefit, I have realized, is that WordPress offers an incredibly good looking schemes even for the basic free version. That makes it look very professional and appealing for the reader.

"The Best CMS That I Have Ever Used"

What do you like best?

Well, first of all, it's free to use and open source. So there won't be any additional cost for using it other than hosting. It is very easy to manage with a very simple console, unlike some other CMS. It has a wide range of plugins and themes to suits every needs.

What do you dislike?

WordPress is perfect for building websites for any purpose, but sometimes it just doesn't have the specific feature that I needed. It also has no support at all except for a support forum, so if something went wrong it would be a big problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WordPress is free besides hosting, with a cheap hosting service this would be perfect for everyone. I would suggest https://panel.hailiga.org as the total cost will just be $40 per year for both hosting and domain.

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

I needed a better way of managing my websites with full customisation right to the source codes, and WordPress is definitely the software of my choice.

"The easiest way to create a website or blog."

What do you like best?

It is the most flexible and reliable way for blogging and website content management system. Since most of the operations are drag and drop, you don’t need any hard-core coding skills to create a website, just a simple basic knowledge is sufficient. One of the best thing is, It is completely free, so you don’t need to spend money to get your website.

What do you dislike?

Besides having a wonderful website building tool, it has some limitations also. Since, many websites are self hosted, and wordpress is quite large, it is vulnerable to hacking, so it has some security flaws. The other thing which I don’t like is, it has very limited permissions. Unlike many other CMS, it has many restrictions over permissions.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For beginners, It is more than amazing tool. It is very easy to handle,hence the fastest way for creating website.

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

Since, wordpress is open-source, you can modify code for your benefit and share with others without worrying licensing fees. Since it is build on PHP, which is not a very tough language to learn, so you can easily learn and implement into it.

"Word Up!"

What do you like best?

The ease of use is quite nice these days. In the early days of WordPress, it was not so user-friendly, especially when adding and arranging images. However, they've made it a point to get people on their platform and have made image placement and resisizing very easy.

Also, a great platform for low budget startups as it comes with a multitude of free templates.

What do you dislike?

Though sizing and arrangements may be easier than it used to be, it can cause issues if the user is unfamiliar with inserting both images and wording. Columns can get skewed and a bit wonky.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's a great place to start out. If you're new to web development, this is a great set of training wheels. If you have some development skills already, you can also use the advanced features as to not insult your intelligence. Highly recommend.

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

We currently use WordPress to host what is going on inside the company, whether that be a new location opening, customer spotlight, product spotlight, a holiday greeting, or whatever we think about.

It also provides the information to our shareholders of who we are as an organization and where to find us. It allows everyone to see what we do and how we can help their business succeed when they partner with us.

"Scalable, easy to use, tons of plugins to choose from, "

What do you like best?

WordPress allows me to easily sell online, post blogs, and more! WordPress websites have allowed me to design websites that rank well on Google, are easy to manage and can scale easily. Adding functionality is also easy with the use of trusted plugins.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike is not so much a WordPress.org problem, it's more of a problem that comes by using WordPress. It's hard to find a good hosting company to host a WordPress website but good hosting companies do exist for WordPress.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It's well worth using! WordPress makes it easy for you to build almost any kind of website so definitely use it!

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

"Wordpress, a great CMS"

What do you like best?

It is one of the most popular CMS in the market, developed with PHP, and makes use of mysql and apache, which makes it much more popular. If one needs to give quick answers for the construction of prototypes, Wordpress is one of the best options. Its popularity allows a wide availability of themes that avoid having to spend time on one of the tasks that consume it most: the graphic design of the sites, although the designs available are very competitive, adapting one to particular needs will not require much time . The administrative interface of the backend has a large number of options that make it highly customizable: from user configuration, appearance, etc. and the possibility of adding a variety of plugins for specific tasks such as statistical analysis, social networks, calendars, etc. and functions that facilitate the user's navigation. One of the best features of this CMS is the large number of users and developers that keep it up to date, competitive and secure, it is more likely that security gaps are found in Wordpress than in any other CMS. The support to keep it safe is one of the most active and guarantees that security problems can be solved in a short time.

What do you dislike?

I think not, it meets all my expectations

"Where function meets quality"

What do you like best?

WordPress is user friendly and has a lot of different tools to help customize your website. Once the website skeleton is set up, it is easy to go in and manipulate the content or add new things. You can customize so many features on your website, it will take your brand to a whole new level.

What do you dislike?

Though it is great to have many different customizable options, it can be a bit overwhelming. There were a few times when I had to figure things out by trial and error to see what it was that i was adding to the page or what I ultimately had to click on to get the look I wanted.

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

We wanted to launch an interactive page where book donors could find a location in their neighborhood where they could drop off book donations. We wanted to set up an interactive "look up" map; simply type in your zip code and the map will bring up all the locations closest to you.

This not only helped us spread the word about out Book Drop Network but also allowed people with one-off donations a chance to drop the donation off without having to come out to our Processing Center in Lake Bluff.

"Great tool with a great community behind it"

What do you like best?

It's easy to install and deploy, you can start your website in minutes, literally. Thousands upon thousands of free (and paid) plugins and themes. It's easy (and cheap) to have a fantastic website, with lots of functionalities, responsive (very important nowadays if you want more engagement and good Google positions) and easy to use.

What do you dislike?

As go along, it tends to be more difficult to maintain, mostly because of all the plugins and themes you can install and use, it could get a bit trick if there's a technical problem. Even though there are lots of free plugins available, user management and roles is still a problem difficult to handle. There's no direct support, even though there is a great community behind it, you are on your own, and you have to handle problems yourself (or your developer).

Recommendations to others considering the product

You should have someone with previous experience with custom Wordpress installation. It tends to get trick really fast, and you could get lost (or you could spend a lot more time) in the way if you don't have someone who knows the path. Eventually you'll need paid plugins and (or) services. Wordpress itself it's free, but if it is only a piece of the puzzle.

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

Easy to start using and developing custom functionalities. There's no need reinvent the wheel. With Wordpress you get a lot of stuff ready to go: blog, business website, ecommerce, and whatever you might think!

"Wordpress is the best platform for websites today"

What do you like best?

I was a graphic designer before the internet came along and changed everything, but once it did I started making websites in HTML, and that was hard. I'm not much of a coder — more of a visual person. But once I found Wordpress everything changed for me again. Wordpress is great! The little bit of code I do know i get to put to use to customize things, but for the most part, I don't need to work with any code, and I am able to design sites that fit my client's needs, are simple to develop, and quick. It is a well-supported community and pretty much anything you want to do you can do with Wordpress these days.

What do you dislike?

Wordpress needs to be kept up to date or else it can become a target for hackers. AND all the plugins and tools you use to design and maintain your site also need to stay up to date. So it can become kind of a hassle to update everything all the time, and when you run into problems troubleshooting can be confusing too. Luckily the community supporting Wordpress is extensive and every time I have a problem the answer is out there to be found from some helpful person on a forum or a blog post explaining the problem.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Choose a solid host that specifically supports wordpress hosting. Good hosting makes all the difference.

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

I create Wordpress websites for my own projects as well as for clients. Wordpress has opened the possibilities of what I can design up to whatever I can imagine because I have the support of a huge community of users.

"First Time User"

What do you like best?

I love the fact that it is very user friendly. I was a first time user and after a few minutes of playing around I was able to figure things out. I also like the fact that things just don't get deleted. There have been times when I accidently deleted a whole page and I was able to retrieve it with just a few clicks.

What do you dislike?

I hate that I do not have full access to everything. Working in Higher Education we have someone in a monitor role who oversees the things each department does. They have full access, so when /if I need something done on my end immediately that I don't have access to, I have to wait on them.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I would advise anyone who uses it to make sure they have full access otherwise it can become a headache. Being that my role is not full time "IT" my organization does not permit me full access. I would also advise using the online help tools and videos to get a feel of the software. It really is not difficult to use as it is very user friendly, but sometimes one little mistake can mess up everything. And if you do not know where you made the mistake it becomes a headache.

"Wrote Articles for a blogsite"

What do you like best?

I like how professional it makes everything look. The overall look was very nice and clear for readers to understand. You could add photographs to it, links, attach a small survey at the bottom, and so many other possibilities in creating a really interesting article.

What do you dislike?

There are so many little steps to it, and sometimes it would drive me crazy. You do one little thing incorrect and it could screw up your entire article. The biggest issue is you need to know how to do HTML coding. I had no idea how to do it when I first started and I thank my supervisors who gave me a HTML coding cheat sheet. I can't imagine what it would be like for someone who doesn't know how to do any of that have to go in and try and figure it out by themselves without any training.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just make sure you know how to use HTML formatting. It's not obvious and there is quite a lot of coding involved in it. It'll make you feel like you've become a computer hacker.

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

The benefits are any amateur can use this and give their blog a real professional look. I like you add surveys at the end of it, throw some pictures throughout the article, add a comment bar at the bottom. It makes it so you can instantly hear back from your readers.

"We've never switched since we used it"

What do you like best?

We have used Wordpress not only as our content management system but also our website's platform. I like how simple and easy to reskin the entire platform to make it what we want it to be. We can build different kinds of websites or even clone one by just installing a single theme or plugin. There is almost no learning curve since the dashboard is very self-explanatory. You can practically see everything in one glance, and work your way in.

What do you dislike?

I do not like how servers treat Wordpress internal processes differently, it sometimes slows it down. Thus, it will need a WordPress specific server to make things run smoothly like WEngine and alike. There are different kinds of load balancing that happens internally, and that is out of our hands to control. Hopfully they can have it improved.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Yes, highly recommended. Wordpress is heading in the right direction releasing crucial updates almost every other month is one way of letting users know that there's a strong team behind it.

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

We used to build websites from scratch and publish articles from a separate CMS. We have to bring in an in-house web developer in order to do simple tasks for us because the system we used to use is quite complicated. Then we tried Wordpress and everything took off from there. We can readily manage our own website even without technical knowledge, and plugins and themes are readily available. Very nifty if you ask me.

"Very Customizable, User Friendly"

What do you like best?

I absolutely love using Wordpress.com. I have used other publishing platforms and nothing compares to the customization Wordpress provides. They also have countless plug-ins ranging from SEO ratings, recipe cards, OG image and just about any niche you could think of. I love that I can connect my domain easily to Wordpress and have my site run completely through them. It's easy to edit and share content as well. If you are having trouble, they also have a very complex FAQ and Support articles.

What do you dislike?

There honestly isn't much I dislike about Wordpress. Once I figured it out, it was super easy to connect my domain to Wordpress.org but if you don't have a lot of experience on the back-end of websites, you may need to look up a how-to article (which there are plenty out there!)

Recommendations to others considering the product

Easy to use (and learn), integrates well with other products, tons of Support articles to help you learn or answer questions

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

A major business problem I am solving with Wordpress.org is hosting a professional looking website for an up-and-coming business with a small budget. I love the Yoast SEO plug-in because it helps me tailor my posts so they are web-ready and easily readable. Another benefit I have realized is that it's so easy to maintain and whether you are a beginner or advanced with publishing platforms, you can easily learn along the way.

"Great product that has helped with our website design"

What do you like best?

I really enjoy the fact that with a couple of simple tweaks and words, we can have the appearance of a professional looking website. We use the Forms section to help us create a questionnaire for all of our prospects. They will receive a questionnaire from us after the set up an appointment to meet with one of our sales team. This questionnaire helps us to determine what type of service and product would be best fit for them. This form is easy to search and review before our appointment with the prospect.

What do you dislike?

Word Press can be a little difficult to use, but once you learn the system, it is much easier to navigate.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Word Press is a great system for you to use for your business if it fits your needs. You need to allow yourself the proper amount of time to learn the system and understand what you need to do on your end. There are a lot of options available and sometimes it can be overwhelming. However, like many things, it will come with time and trials. If you are serious about this product, make sure you take a moment to understand the forms section, they can be very helpful for you when working with potential leads for your business.

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

The biggest problem that we have been able to solve with Word Press is creating different landing pages for our website. We have also been able to create surveys for our prospects to fill out prior to meeting with them and that has helped us have a better understanding of the needs they have before we even meet with them.

"WordPress - a way to introduce yourself to CMS?"

What do you like best?

The flexibility, huge community, rich plugins database made WordPress a standard synonym for the content management system. I personally think that it represents the whole CMS industry.

What do you dislike?

What I mostly encounter while working with WordPress customers - HTTP error 500 which is caused by a faulty plugin or a design theme most of the times. The person who has a website created on WordPress doesn't always necessarily know how to develop in PHP and I'm pretty sure there must be a way of predetermining if the newly installed plugin or theme would break the website. It would be so useful if such flaw noticed would be indicated as an alert while you activate the plugin/theme and if the user is experienced - they could continue anyway by clicking some small button in the corner of the alert pop-up.

Recommendations to others considering the product

WordPress is so flexible it can be implemented in almost any representative WEB task. I've seen so much different WordPress sites before that I can fearlessly say that if you're a person or a business - you will most likely be able to use WordPress for your Personal/Company website. Some of the tasks need a lot of development to be done with WordPress and some exclusive ideas would probably be better suited with a custom designed application instead of pre-built CMS yet most of the people can start off by using WordPress.

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

Personally, I use WordPress for my e-commerce websites. I simply install WooCommerce plugin on top of it followed by a few security, SEO, and analytics plugins with a custom-made design template on top of it. After only a few projects being done with WordPress myself - I can create a new solution really quickly as the system itself is intuitive and rich.

"Makes Making a Website Easy"

What do you like best?

WordPress is an essential tool for managing our website, it is easy to use, has regular upgrades adding new features, and a robust theme and plugin library to enhance the core application.

What do you dislike?

Plugin support is very limited and the vetting of plugins and themes is something we are responsible for. Often, if we attempt to add a new plugin, it will break another feature of the website unexpectedly. It's detrimental to our business to add new plugins as we do not want our production web site to be offline.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you have some limited in house web development experience, this is a great tool. If HTML is completely unfamiliar to you, you may need an external developer to help configure and manage your website.

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

We are able to use WordPress.org as a replacement for any sort of web development or hosting solution which would cost a significant amount of capital. As a startup, being lean on expenses is critical.

"WordPress is an ecosystem"

What do you like best?

WordPress is easy to expand and to contribute on improve it with their big community that do weekly meetings.

The community is friendly and with their meetup and events is easy to find customers but also friends.

The open source factor s very powerful to convince customers because doesn't require too many skills on use it like others competitors.

What do you dislike?

Too many people is working on it doing bad things. People that is not conscientious of standards and doesn't care of portability of their projects.

People that is doing promotion to the project without be part of the community.

The missing portability to other database like Postegresql.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Evaluate everything features of your customers and see if they are required. Usually with wordpress there are a lot of opportunities and customers wants everything but at the and they don't use everything,

Easy way to have MVP but also a website working with specific requirements or to develop an application.

"Making the Switch to WP was the best idea!"

What do you like best?

Wordpress comes with a lot of amazing features that truly allows you to customize your website and make it as unique as you are. I came from SquareSpace and I love the WP allows me to build my brand and customize my website. There are plugins and integrations for anything you want to do with your website.

What do you dislike?

I wish there were stricter processes for those creating plugins. If you install the wrong plugin on your site you can seriously hurt your website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you're a blogging, have a service based business, sell a physical or digital product, or have an online course, Wordpress is an amazing web builder tool that's easy to use, integrates well with a multitude of products, and isn't hard to manage after initial setup.

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

WP is my website builder so it helps me have a website that's unique to my brand online. I really like that there are plugins for anything you can imagine. WP allows a lot of customization and it's easy to work with.

"If you have a website, you should be using WordPress."

What do you like best?

Very powerful website tool that offers everything you could want, is somewhat beginner friendly, and is so commonly used that you can pretty much always find the support you need.

What do you dislike?

While there are plenty of options for those who are not computer scientists, having a CS background is still the best way to get the absolute most out of WP.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Find a powerful theme that has evidence of ongoing support. The best themes can be customized to look like pretty much anything you want if you have the patience and/or know how, so don't get too hung up on the aesthetics of the demo. Get the Yoast SEO plug-in ASAP, especially if you have a content-heavy site.

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

We create custom websites, and every new site we make is made with WordPress. We hope to not ever have to use anything else.

"Great for inexperienced and pros! "

What do you like best?

WordPress makes it easy to create a blog you can be proud of. I have ZERO computer/website design skills, so the templates are EXTREMELY helpful! Not to mention, it's a pretty affordable way to have a website. I think it is very user-friendly and a great way to get your brand out there!

What do you dislike?

There isn't much to dislike about WordPress. It has everything you could need and great customer service!

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are looking for a blog platform that has all of the things you need, is easy to use, easily accessible and affordable, this is the site for you! You can even get your own .com, which is awesome!

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

"You don't need a developer team to build your website!"

What do you like best?

The best thing that I like about Wordpress is the approach of all-in-one webpage creation. You can quickly make the website in minutes with help of the Wordpress plugins and you can also customize them as you desire.

What do you dislike?

I have nothing to say about that I don't like in Wordpress. I can do whatever I need in a website with this application. Everything is so easy to reach from the web and also reachable from every device. I can do all my needs so easily because of these reasons I don't see anything that I dislike about this platform or its related plugins.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you want to create your own website with spending lowest money you can definitely give a try to use Wordpress platform. Be sure that you will be satisfied and also you will have a safe & secure website. By using custom templates or buying them also you will have impressive looking websites. Wordpress platform is always growing and updating. You can take this benefit by using official paid or unpaid plugins. I am so happy to use this platform and I strongly suggest every investor use this Platform.

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

I had a low budget to create a website hence I wanted to build it by myself with an all-in-one platform so I used Wordpress to build a website from zero. That was an amazing platform for me to build my own website.

"Word Press"

What do you like best?

WordPress' best feature is its basic package is free. The basic package will allow you to create a good website and is designable to a decent degree if you are not into design then there are many templates available.

What do you dislike?

WordPress' least enticing feature is the "easy to design page". The pages are not so easy to design in the basic package. You need more options in most cases to get a great webpage design working with WordPress.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are many web hosts out there, WordPress is a top site but there are many smaller sites that have great help forums and are free/paid for more out there that are just as nice and have better options and fewer downsides.

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

WordPress was used to reach a larger range of people. I realized that many people used it and I imagined that if I did I could draw in some of those people for my designs and graphics, but this did not happen. I abandoned it but may revisit due to new additions.

"The best way to create and maintain your website."

What do you like best?

If you don't know any sort of programming then no need to worry because WordPress is the place you are looking for. There are many reasons to love WordPress such as WordPress.org is free and open source. The best thing about WordPress is plugins. Plugins provides unlimited functionalities according to your desire. There is a plugin store like PlayStore in WordPress itself. The backend experience is truly amazing. The visual editor because of its drag and drop features is an amazing backend tool. You can easily add pages, posts, blogs, galleries and much more. There are literally thousands of themes available for WordPress suitable for all types of websites. Whether you are building food blog or a tech website, themes got you covered. Plus WordPress is pretty easy to keep secure. The SEO for wordpress works like a charm. Search engines like Google loves it. All WordPress sites are accessible through out the internet. Upgradability is another thing to love. You can upgrade the features, themes, plugins whenever you want. There are millions of websites including the big ones like the New York Times blog uses WordPress.

What do you dislike?

There are certainly not much to dislike but there are a few. The themes and plugins you like are not entirely free. They charge for premium services. There are certainly freewares available but some don't provide great services. You have to learn the basics for SEO even if the plugins do their work in order to get efficiency. The domain name and web hosting are still there to add up the expense but WordPress is free though.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are some tutorials you should see if you are an absolute beginner to WordPress.

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

You can manage e-commerce websites totally on WordPress. And the SEO helps to get business opportunities. Many investors have reached us because of the great SEO on WordPress. One can grow their business at a considerably fast pace. Many business problems are related to communication but WordPress takes care of it.

"Wordpress is suitable for a wide range of business applications and is user friendly"

What do you like best?

Wordpress is great whether you are simply a blogger wanting to get your thoughts out into the world, or whether you are wanting to develop and self host a website on it. The documentation is easy to follow and there is a large network of users eager to offer assistance. There is also a large number of free templates, plug ins and accessories to make using it both technologically advantageous as well as aesthetically pleasing and a fun experience.

What do you dislike?

Some aspects of fine tuning parts of it could benefit from more bulk editing features.

Recommendations to others considering the product

A great product but I would recommend starting with a list of what you need from software, then what you would like then a nice to have list. See how many ticks this software gets. Compare it to at least two pieces of other software of the same nature before making your final decision. This is what I recommend for any piece of software. Also, check out their own forms of customer support, and social media sites to see what other customers have had to say about the software.

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

We used wordpress to host a blog on it. It was very successful in that it enabled us to do so with a low start up cost and easy ongoing investment both in time and money making it a successful platform of choice for our team.

"THE BEST CONTENT MANAGER"

What do you like best?

Wordpress is the best content manager for creating of web pages. It has great advantages is free, easy to use, it has a lot of plugins and themes free, intuitive...

You do not have to be a specialist to be able to create websites. There is also a lot of information on the Internet, everything you want to do can be found in forums, manuals or web books.

What do you dislike?

I do not like the code editor that has the tool, I had to restore the web because of an error in the database and I do not like that it is not compatible with other content manager and it has a database with a lot of unnecessary information

Recommendations to others considering the product

Cheer up and try it, it is a highly recommended tool to create simple websites.

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

"A robust platform that is the industry standard -- you can't NOT use it!"

What do you like best?

I like the flexibility. While WordPress itself is pretty basic, there is no end to the amount of plugins you can add so that you can customize your site to be exactly as you like. And the CMS is pretty easy to use, making it easy for our clients to update many aspects of their sites themselves.

What do you dislike?

This kind of goes against what I said I liked about it, but WordPress is so basic that you HAVE to have plugins to do the things you want. For example, you'd think there would be a default place to enter your Google Analytics tracking code since nearly every website would want that, but you need a plugin for it. And these plugins need to be frequently updated, and you have to test that the updates don't break your site. So it makes ongoing maintenance kind of a chore.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely try it, just be aware that you'll likely need a lot of plugins in order to do exactly what you want, and some of those plugins will cost money. And then you'll need to budget time/money to manage updates for the plugins.

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

We build websites for clients, and at least half of them are built on WordPress. It's pretty much industry standard these days. WordPress allows clients the flexibility to build their sites as they like at a much more affordable price since the basics are inherently covered.

"We Love Wordpress!"

What do you like best?

I love how easy Wordpress is to use and the options that are available to you! Wordpress also offers so much such as websites with tips and answers to questions. As well as Wordcamps! We love Wordpress! My coworker and I went to our first Wordcamp and I hope to continue to go to more in the future! Especially since they are very available and inexpensive for freelancers and business people to attend!

What do you dislike?

Sometimes the back-end is hard to visualize while working. But truthfully, Wordpress is amazing and I think they are headed in the right directions. Normally, with each update they are creating better ways for us to use and work with Wordpress. We love using Wordpress for all of our clients.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Give it a try!! It's amazing and there are a ton of sources to help you! (Wordcamp!)

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

Allowing us to create beautiful websites for our clients and ourselves!

"A flexible, user-friendly CMS that keeps getting better"

What do you like best?

WordPress' vision to make things simple has made it increasingly popular. The core developers believe in decisions rather than options - but that doesn't mean you don't have options. Instead, it means the core itself is lightweight, but you can extend it almost infinitely with themes and plugins.

What do you dislike?

My only area of concern is for the new Gutenberg editor. The good news is WP is trying to address something that's been a concern for users for years - the editing interface - and they've involved the community in the very early stages of planning, so they can give feedback and help shape the future. The bad news is that so far much of the old functionality - namely metaboxes - hasn't been planned out yet.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Although WordPress is extremely customizeable, don't just expect to dive in and drag and drop things exactly the way you want them. For most sites - other than a simple personal website - you should hire a developer who can help you find quality plugins and themes to make your site look and act like you want it to. Even if you use all out-of-the-box themes and plugins, it's important to vet their code - those plugins may be doing more than just benefiting you.

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

By using an open source CMS, we're able to handle our own development a lot more smoothly. WP replaced an in-house makeshift CMS when its creator left abruptly and it became clear that the codebase was unsustainable.

"Powerful but complex at the same time"

What do you like best?

Wordpress is an outstanding piece of software to create whatever website you may have in mind. It has so many functionality and integration with many services or other platforms makes it a complete tool to be used. I love the great number of themes that you can find and the update speed

What do you dislike?

It is not a user friendly tool. It requires a lot of experience and technical skills before being used at its best. It is true that there are a pletora of tool, plugins, add-ons that you can use in wordpress .. but not all of them are correctly working. Plus what it is really annoying, due to the fact that wordpress has to use a database, it is that it requires a specific hosting service that 99% of the times is never offered for free ..... I also dislike the fact that most usefull plugins are not for free !!

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wordpress is a tool that requires practice before beeing correctly used. It is interesting that you can edit every single part of your website .. but it is everything except a wysiwyg software. you might need a small previous knowledge of html code, css meaning .... then you'll love it !!

"Best for advanced users"

What do you like best?

Allows me to edit & resize photos once in my library, which is very helpful when having to tweak my content. I like the ability to feature individual team members. It is nice to have two levels of backend editing, so that I can leave the more complicated work to our contracted graphic designer & web editor, but I am still able to do the daily updates and quick fixes that are needed by using the more basic editor.

What do you dislike?

It's quite difficult to do anything beyond very basic posts without knowledge of coding or backend text editing. I also don't like the rigidity of photo structures within posts/pages; I am limited by the behavior of the text interacting with the photos and often have to delete whole blocks because inserting a photo messes up my text. It can be frustrating to use galleries within posts/pages because I cannot manually choose their orientation, and they often interfere with text blocks. One of my biggest frustrations with WordPress is the blank white space that is left at the top of every post, even though my content & text are aligned at the top of the page while editing. I can't get rid of it and it looks unprofessional on the website.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I suggest finding tutorials or having someone experienced go over the platform with you if you are a beginner.

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

It offers quick changes so our nonprofit can easily post new information and keep our community and audience engaged. It's easy to share posts to Facebook so we can tie in our online presence to our social media pages. I like how simple it is to create blog posts and create links to other sites and resources, because it helps us grow our social & business capital by engaging other organizations & businesses with our audience.

"No Muss No Fuss"

What do you like best?

I like being able to edit and control the url. Editing is easy. Navigation through the dashboard is easy. The dashboard "quick edit" function is handy. I like the "featured post" category. I like being able to edit the tags and categories. The program protects you from deleting tags or categories that are in use. You can see how many of your tags are in use, and on which posts. I like the "read more" functionality and the block quotes editing feature. It's easy to hyperlink and insert photos. It's easy to train others to use the dashboard.

What do you dislike?

It needs the SEO Pack plug-in for search engine optimization. The functionality of the SEO Pack ought to be included in WordPress. You have to upload images two times--once into the SEO Pack in order for the image to be pulled into Facebook when you share a blog post on Facebook feed. I haven't found it easy to access WordPress support. The alerts are confusing and difficult to address.

Recommendations to others considering the product

It needs the SEO Pack.

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

Being able to prop up a website with no muss, no fuss. Not having to involve my programmers on small projects. It's easy enough to train others to use the program. Being able to schedule posts in advance is a time saver. It has become a valuable content hub that drives traffic to our website. The blog is a content hub for our electronic newsletters.

"Wordpress a technological world to manage my website"

What do you like best?

Wordpress is an incredible platform, every day I use it to work on a web page, its ease and versatility make it an easy program to use. The amount of accessories you have are wonderful, also has a variety of templates that work for me every day. Also its mobile platform allows me to manage and be in constant vigilance of the website.

What do you dislike?

Many times WordPress tends to become unconfigured when touching or installing an add-on, many times they have tried to hack the account, and I have to change the password every certain time by means of security.

I would like to let me accommodate everything my way, and not let everything be symmetrical with the default templates.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Definitely WordPress is great to start a web page or blog, I recommend it to all people, in a few days you can be able to use it, its functions are easy to understand and majerar.

You only need this program to manage and update the information of any web page, the best thing is that you can access from anywhere through a computer with internet.

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

I work managing and updating a web page every day, this platform allows me to carry out my activity without any mishap, I believe news and I leave them scheduled for the date I want.

There are many benefits, saving time, money, I do not need large platforms or human resources to be at the forefront of web pages.

Among blog managers worldwide, wordpress is the most used and for me the best of all.

Its graphic aesthetic is the most striking, its variety of templates free and its ease of use has made it so popular in recent years.

What do you dislike?

The faults that this application usually has is with respect to the losses in the scheduled publications, for those of us who must optimize our brand we must choose the best times to publish and thus obtain a greater performance and interaction, that is why it is very important that these publications fail losses that sometimes occur.

"WordPress helps me promote my products without effort!"

What do you like best?

The feature I enjoy the most is the Reader. The Reader lets me find blogs that I normally wouldn't search for. It is a great tool to discover new ideas, projects, and blogs to follow. This feature brings a lot of traffic to my site without me promoting it.

What do you dislike?

The only thing I do not like about WordPress is there is no monthly payment option. I believe monthly payments would recruit a lot more customers. Not all customers can afford to pay all twelve months upfront. I am usually one of those customers.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If you are considering WordPress.org , definitely pay for the plan if you're able to. The plan allows you to have your own custom domain and access to plug-ins and widgets. Plug-ins and widgets are a huge asset to your website.

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

My business is new and upcoming. WordPress has helped me receive followers and traffic to my site. The Reader has been a huge help for me as for promoting my business. Wordpress also offers E-Commerce plug-ins. These plug-ins allow you to create your own virtual store with no prior HTML, CSS, JavaScript, PHP knowledge. This feature offers themes and templates to get your website going. You are able to customize it as well.

"WordPress - The Web Designers' No.1 Choice"

What do you like best?

I like a lot of features about WordPress and these features make website design a fun process.

1. Easy setup: WordPress is easy to setup especially with the script installers out there. There is not much to configure. You can get a website up in just a few clicks

2. Superb customization - You can select from a large number of themes right after your website has been installed. Nowadays, you can install premium looking themes even within WordPress. You can also install great and powerful skins from third parties

3. Unlimited functionalities, features - With the great amount of plugins available for WordPress, you can make your website have almost any feature you want. From e-commerce to blogs and to brands and much more

4. WordPress is great for ecommerce - You can literally start a serious e-commerce website by installing the appropriate plugins on your WordPress. This means that anybody, especially content creators, can make money from their websites without programming knowledge. I have been selling my music lessons videos on my WordPress website for over a year now

5. Mobile support - Wordpress has a mobile app that enables you to manage your website from anywhere. This is a very useful feature for me

What do you dislike?

1. You may break things if you are not careful - You have to be careful when installing pluging on WordPress. If you do not create a backup of your website before installing some plugins, you may lose data or render your website unusable if something goes wrong

2. Not Very Secure - WordPress is one of the most popular CMS platforms so you need to secure your WordPress site with third party solutions like cloudflare, against cyber threats.

3. No support - Be careful when working on your website because there is no readily available support to help you fix things if something goes wrong

Recommendations to others considering the product

WordPress.org's WordPress CMS software is the web designers' choice for designing websites. The features you can get our of WordPress are endless with the wealth of plugins available out there. WordPress is also one of the easiest-to-use CMS platforms out there.

If you want the best solution for creating stunning websites, then look no further, WordPress is a great choice

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

1. I personally run an e-commerce website on which I sell Piano lessons products and my website is a WordPress site with woocommerce functionality. It is so easy selling and receiving payments on my websites

2. I am able to create useful content with so much ease on my WordPress website and reach new customers everyday. The whole process of creating content, editing content and publishing the content is so easy

3. With the available plugins for my wordpress website I have been able to add functionalities to my website which enable me to chat with my customers in real time, I can also collect email leads and send emails to my subscribers.

4. I can run my business from home with ease and earn good revenue from my website

"Flexibility allows for easy changes"

What do you like best?

The ability to change the type of content block you are using, formatting copy, and uploading media makes it a great platform for almost every type of business. User permissions are easy to manage, and there is so much flexibility that with time, you can find a solution to just about any obstacle that gets in your way. Plugins are inexpensive, and easy to replace.

What do you dislike?

If your company requires a lot of customization or highly technical plugins, this may not be the best solution for you. Updating plugins to keep your business safe and secure is very important, and sometimes 3rd party vendors will customize plugins that they like - but break when you go to update. Make sure to test updates in a testing environment before implementing on your live site.

Recommendations to others considering the product

If your business can reduce the amount of custom changes made to templates and plug-ins, allowing for quick and easy updates, the experience with WP will be much better.

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

We are able to give many people in our business different levels of access, allowing them to make changes directly to the aspects of our website that we allow them to. This variation of user permissions, gives us greater reach to make smaller changes without requiring tech or specialist time.

"Great Website Building Tool!"

What do you like best?

Wordpress is an easy and great tool to build beautiful and easy websites. I think their integration with other popular platforms like social media sites such as Twitter, Facebook, Instagram etc. are a complete game changer - it makes sharing so easy.

What do you dislike?

I do wish the dashboard page was a bit more user friendly. It took me some time to really figure out how to implement everything that I wanted on the site, I wish there wasn't as much of a learning curve.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I think this software is going to become more and more common in the future. I think it is important to at least have some familiarity with it, even if you don't end up using it for your own company. Learning all the tips and tricks will really help you moving forward in the web space.

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

I'm solving the problem of not having an updated, pleasing website. I've realized how important that is. A beautiful website will make or break you in the world of business today and WordPress gave me a great website.

"Powerful platform for anyone to create a web site."

What do you like best?

Powerful web platform for beginners and experts alike.

The availability of themes is a massive draw. If you are looking to do something, a quick search will provide everything that you should need.

WordPress becomes the platform on which you can run a simple blog or build a powerful Learning Management system.

The fact that updates are managed for you and automatically ensure that that you always have the latest version.

What do you dislike?

Can be tricky to understand how to get started, especially when using themes (which a beginner is likely to do).

Take a look at the themes carefully and check out what you need from the website yo uare building. the cost of these is well worth the time you save on creating layouts when first getting started.

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

Not being a programmer, I used to use Serif WebPlus to create websites. However as there is no Mac version, it was increasingly difficult to use in a VM install of windows.

Switching to WordPress has allowed me to create multiple sites in less time and better look in thanks to the ‘uncode’ theme.

"Great for All Levels"

What do you like best?

I think the best part of WordPress is how easy it is to navigate through the user interface. It's easy to see what you're doing while making major edits to your site.

What do you dislike?

Sometimes it can be hard to find good plugins to accommodate for the functionality you need. But, there are usually plenty of help documents and developers can be responsive.

Recommendations to others considering the product

There are plenty of free components to WordPress, but don't be afraid to check out some of the paid options to take your site to the next level. However, don't be afraid to look around for free stuff that works just as well.

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

We migrated from an older system over to WordPress, it was important for us to feel as though we were using current technology, had access to the latest marketing techniques, and could easily update our site in house. The benefits have been that we are able to take more control of our content and really focus on the right messaging.

"Industry leading open-source Blogging software"

What do you like best?

The huge support community, hundreds of plugins, and themes and ease of setup. We use this extensively for internal blogging applications as our user base prefers it to the out-of-the-box SharePoint blogs for customization of the content and look-and-feel.

What do you dislike?

Almost too easy to use, we have 'administrator' access users making uninformed changes that can break the install.

Recommendations to others considering the product

For internal blogging purposes we chose WordPress for its ease of use and variety of features over SharePoint Blog sites. The industry leading blogging installation also has the advantage of extensive user training and customization resources which we did not have to provide.

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

Communications issues are common and an effective, user-friendly tool such as WordPress has helped us encourage authors to continue publishing and focusing on their content rather than the publishing tool. Users are happy with the ability to 'style up' their content that was not provided by the SharePoint alternative.

"So easy to set up a professional looking website or blog"

What do you like best?

I love using Wordpress for creating all blog related websites or simple professional-looking landing pages. There are a lot of templates you can choose from, of which some you can even edit to a good extend. Their offering of plugins is neverending and even that can be tweaked.

Also, some of my clients have used analytics as well in Wordpress which was really helpful too. So I'm glad they offer that.

If you want to try out yourself, without the Wordpress support, there is much information to be found online with best practices and tips and tricks.

I think Wordpress is teachable to even the least-techy person and empowers many people on achieving their online goals.

What do you dislike?

What I dislike about Wordpress is that some of the templates don't let you tweak or remove stuff. And I kind of get it, because it's fremium; but I think with a better business model, it should definitely be possible to change everything to your taste. That's really on the cheap side.... but, when you decide to pay, there is really not a lot of downsides to be quite honest.

Recommendations to others considering the product

Just start using it for your own blog! You don't need to go in any training and regardless of that, there are enough videos and tutorials online to be found on some cool features.

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

I have been able to:

build entire homepages

help people with creating blogs

train people how to update their blogs (and while they were not tech-savvy, it was easy for them to use)

"My preferred website solution"

What do you like best?

I love how versatile Wordpress is. It's best known as a blogging platform, but really, you can build practically any kind of website you'd ever need on it. From blogging to e-commerce to everything in between. I like how many existing themes and plugins already exist, making it possible to build a website without needing to know everything there is to know about coding.

What do you dislike?

Because it's such a robust platform, there is a decent learning curve to get up to speed. Especially if you're not a full-time web developer. While it's possible to use out of the box themes and plugins to build a site on your own, it's not as simple as some of the other web builders out there. But, those other builders are not nearly as robust and a site built on those platforms can quickly become obsolete.

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

Wordpress is a platform that is a solid option for the vast majority of businesses, large and small, who are needing a flexible website that can grow with them over time.

"Wordpress, a comprehensive tool for any online presence"

What do you like best?

The extensibility of WordPress is by far its key feature, not to mention the fact that it is truly cross platform.

What do you dislike?

Honestly speaking there is very little to dislike about Wordpress. Its an open source solution, that has some commercial add-ons (very well and reasonably priced I hasten to add). There is a slight learning curve if you've never used it before; but the plethora of guides available, not to mention the intuitive nature of the product itself make it generally a breeze. For example for most people the basic install of wordpress will be almost automated (you just download a zip file, copy it over to your server, and goto a specific url - all of which are described in the installation guide).

Recommendations to others considering the product

Before moving to wordpress, understand what you are trying to accomplish. Work out the plugins that you will need, and ensure that you have a test environment where you can test the plugins. Also be sure you have test data. Testing a plugin but without data that can be used (and is similar to the data your site will carry) is virtually the same as not testing the plugin. If you can't find a plugin that does what you need, then work out how much time you will spend developing it yourself or find a developer who can build it for you (be sure to ask for the source code, and ideally open source the plugin so others can benefit also).

Also, wordpress is not a linux only product, because it is powered by PHP and needs nothing more than a database (ideally MySQL - but others will also work with some tweaks including MS Sql Server and even NoSQL databases like MongoDb - again with tweaking) and finally a web-server to serve all that PHP through, you can go with any webserver you please - be it Apache (the default for most cases), Nginx, IIS, Cherokee, and more besides.

Again, I would also recommend the Jetpack subscription - its well priced, and is worth its wieght in gold.

Finally, for a production site, always have an internal staging environment that you keep in sync with your production version. This is so you can ensure that any new plugins or updates - even theme updates - don't break things. This is just a common sense approach, and because the system requirements are not particularly high - should be fine. You can also host wordpress inside a set of docker containers making upgrades and deployments - as well as development that much easier.

But like I said - two key things to consider before you run with it - work out what you want to do, find (or develop/get developed as the case may be) any plugins you want; and also find out the theme for you - while many themes exist - some which are amazing - you can also develop your own theme or get one custom developed for you - just bear in mind that you will have to - just like with plugins - have to keep the theme updated with each version of wordpress. That's not to say you will need to redevelop the theme/plugin with each update to wordpress, but it would be wise to check - just in case!

Deploying can be done either on your own dedicated server, on a VPS, your laptop (for development and demo purposes), AWS, Azure or other cloud services, as well as using containers via Docker using Heroku or such services.

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

WordPress provides a framework for create an online presence, be it for a business or personal site, be it for a major news outlet or a design house, software company, anything. Since its a framework, and provides you with the ability to extend it as you so wish (with a plethora of plugins for all manner of features already out there - free and premium - and if you're able to develop plugins, then that is also not massively complicated and many guides exist to provide a newbie with lots of help).

From using it as an Ecommerce website, to using it as an API to power mobile apps. More so, if you couple wordpress.org with Jetpack and the awesome services that are provided with Jetpack, you have a solution that can't be beaten.

Highly recommended.

"The only site builder i use now"

What do you like best?

The versatility is the best hands down. I love being able to search thousands of themes and templates across the web to find just the right foundation. I also love having just as many plugins with reviews to choose from for any addition I may need. Access to the code to adjust deeper or child CSS is fantastic, and gives me all of the customization i could ever need for any client. Page versions are also genius. I love that I can go back to a previous edit without losing what I've done.

What do you dislike?

The media gallery has always been a bit of a pain. There''s no way to sort the images or categorize them, so they're all lumped together in this huge block that you have to dig through any time you need to make a change. An automatic backup feature would also be nice, but I've found a service I pay for that I'm very happy with. One issue that drives me crazy is template updating that completely removes any code I've edited in the child theme. I'm not sure what the solution would be to this, but I do wish there was one.

Recommendations to others considering the product

there's a learning curve to understanding all of the functions and how to access them, but once you have it down the possibilities are endless.

FIND A BACKUP AND RESTORE PLUG IN AND USE IT. I cannot stress this enough. An anti malware plug in is also golden. I paid a small donation of $25 for mine after it proved itself by completely cleaning up my site from a massive encryption hack and destroy. It's worth every penny to know that my site is protected. i would pay every year if i had to..

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

My business website has been very reliable for years. I appreciate the ability to occasionally use my site as a temporary download portal or file transfer vessel in a pinch. I also like being able to attach sub domains easily to my site for other purposes when I need to.

WordPress.org is the largest content management system in the world, and because of that it won’t be disappearing anytime soon.

Wordpress.org have a lot of changes and improvements witch some times is a pain because you need to be always upgrading your themes and plugins,

" Wordpress is a very useful platform to work online."

What do you like best?

It is very practical, do not need so much training to use this platform, in less than a week I learned to manage the main web page of the television channel where I work.

It is very dynamic and simple, the options to make any change can be observed very well.

When I can not work from the office, I can log in from anywhere else.

The installation is very simple, also provides the possibility of customizing the websites in many ways, with different themes and appearances.

I'm not an expert in web page design, but wordpress is so simple with the design that gives me the opportunity to create different pages without much knowledge.

The company where I work is very popular in my country, and this application helps me to observe the interaction that people have with published information.

I am creating daily news and information, and wordpress has the function of saving the images that I use most in a library.

It is definitely the best tool that any company or person can have to be in constant interaction through the internet with the whole world.

What do you dislike?

There is not something that I do not like, my experience with this application has been excellent, I use it daily in my work.

Recommendations to others considering the product

My recommendation for other users, is that they are encouraged to use this application, it is very easy to use. I learned to work with wordpress in less than a week.

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

I work in one of the most famous television plants in Venezuela, I use it mainly to create informative notes. All the channel uses this platform.

It is a question of a system of management of contents online that it gives opening to new schemes as blogs or web page. WordPress allows to locate in addition the information for chronological order, which turns out to be beneficial for the one who evaluates the content of the web site, since it facilitates the audit.

With WordPress, the users can work for managerial webs, shops online, digital newspapers or a personal blog.

In spite of the virtues that already were mentioned in the utilization and preference of this system, WordPress continues permanently after updates for the composition of his web sites. Other one of the disadvantages that this system has is the heaviness on your computer across the connections for the load of plugins. Understanding that in occasions to install plugins is an option but a need.

Recommendations to others considering the product

The reasons that WordPress offers in order that it is used during the emprendimiento and development of your business are changed, but there exist several that cannot happen unnoticed as the validation of the SEO inside every article written in the note. It is a reducer of the time since it is not compared with a normal codification, in addition it is sensitive and supports basic established elements, as Jetpack and Askimet, which offer defense against, the post office not wished, statistics and analysis, optimizations to seek and to share.

"One of the best ways to be on the web."

What do you like best?

Wordpress offers an excellent mix of accessibility and customization. It is simple to setup, easy to administer, but offers powerful extensions and theming options for more sophisticated users. It's an open source project and has a large development community that seemingly has an extension for any functionality you might want or need.

What do you dislike?

Since it is so widely used, it is also widely targeted and subject to security vulnerabilities on an ongoing basis. You need to stay on top of your updates or your site could easily become compromised.

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

We use Wordpress as the framework in most of our client projects. It's easy for a client to navigate and feel comfortable with. The basic mechanics of it have enabled us to develop training materials that stay largely consistent over time, but also implement important new features as websites continue to evolve.

What do you like best?

The best this about wordpress is customization, it’s very make it your own with the large library of free plugins. There are a lot of very powerful low-cost plugins and themes. It features, multi user support, order management, discounts, inventory, products variations, multi payments platforms, courier automatization, multi media manager, integrated user control system, periodic system updates, product categorization,

What do you dislike?

One thing that you have to had in mind is that will take you some time to master wordpress. Another bad thing is the server time response is very high, right now I’m testing different hosting options to make a speed benchmarks db. I had been installing plugins for manage cache and image optimization looking for better performance.

Give it shot, you don’t going to regret it. Is definitely a very powerful tool.

"WordPress: Something for Everyone"

What do you like best?

WordPress makes it painless to get a website or blog up and running fast.

A few of the best features of WordPress would have to begin with:

Themes

a: There is an infinite number of themes and designs available representing nearly every industry and design style.

The WordPress UI is intuitive and it's simple to sort and cruise through scores of Themes.

and it's easy to try out multiple themes and apply numerous options to your project for a quick look.

b: Themes are built around template pages and sections. Templates address specific purposes of a page often including alternate page layouts.

It's this flexibility for customization while remaining a powerful CMS which allows users of all skill levels to achieve professional and functional solutions.

Support and User Guides

WordPress has been around for a long time, It's one of the few software platforms that has remained free and the code open source. Although the instructions are basic, answers to questions and issues can be resolved with a search that will connect you to numerous user groups and developer forums that make up the larger WordPress community.

WordPress offers a full interface free self-hosting version — perfect if you manage your own or your client's hosting.

What do you dislike?

Seven ways to Dis WordPress

1. WordPress has a history of being vulnerable to spam and hacking,

2. There are constantly Wordpress updates and Themes and plug-ins can become incompatible so vigilance is essential.

3. It's somewhat a challenge to redesign or make huge content changes to existing sites

4. Given the noncentralized open source nature finding the answer to a problem can take more time than traditional tech- support

5. too easy for anyone to make edits and mess up things.

6. not ideal for large commerce or sites with expansive growth potential.

7. template designs and updates are not able to be updated when customizing without losing the customizations unless you are comfortable using child themes

Recommendations to others considering the product

Wordpress has grown with the web while it has remained open source software. A big benefit of this model has been wp developers of themes and plug-ins are constantly adding new stuff. Note of caution: Newbies should use a premium theme over any of the tempting free themes. Premium themes usually have regular updates offer tech- support should something go wrong. There is no guarantee free theme will get future updates(important as mentioned earlier) or if the creator will be reachable if you have a problem

Plug-ins exist for just about anything you need or think you need and can be installed with just a couple of clicks. As a new Wordpress user, I wanted to try out and install as many plug-ins as possible. It's best not to do this without doing research, as many are targets for hacking and spam.

Others are experimental and semi-compatible or not compatible with your theme, or may not provide updates, causing issues in the future. It's best to start with basic well-established plug-ins such as Jetpack and Askimet which offer defense against spam, stats, and analytics, optimizations for search and sharing. When adding any plug-in you'll want to:

1. Confirm compatibility with your theme

2. Check-out user reviews for any problems

3. Has it been tested with the current version of WordPress and is it well established?

4. Does it offer decent support?

5. Is there a history of consistent updates?

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

I've learned much about the mechanics' of WordPress Templates, the inherent limitations, and advantages. when tasked with a redesign project for a client who has a well established online business built and grown on WordPress and a premium template which was nearing its functional limit.

After many years as the principal site administrator, my client's business had outgrown the Theme on all sides, however, being so familiar, the client was reluctant to make a dramatic change involving relinquish control in favor of a structured architecture database, custom designed mobile-friendly site or even one of the newer Wordpress Themes that embrace Responsive, clean HTML 5, and more recent WordPress code standards.

What I've learned is that with WordPress there is a way to do anything. All the problems I encounter, surely have been faced and solved by someone before me. It's been a process of discovery— some on my own and much more through searching user groups and forums.

"WordPress is great for allowing non-programmers to easily maintain modern websites."

What do you like best?

What I like best about WordPress is the reasonably easy content management interface, which allows non-programmers to edit and update websites without having to work through a programmer. They also tend to provide modern, mobile-friendly experience for end-users. The WordPress platform also allows programmers (or those with at least some coding savvy) to customized within and around templates. I also love that WordPress provides a nice Preview option, so you can see your work prior to publishing for the world to see. That's a nice, powerful combination of characteristics!

What do you dislike?

The interface can be a bit clumsy and not always very intuitive - trying to find where something is located, where/how to make a change, etc. At least in my experiences to date, SEO capabilities do not seem to be a default element - rather, it needs to be added; depending on which plugin is used for SEO, it can be awkward to work with. I think it would be nice of WordPress had a robust SEO functionality in place by default -- yet one that could be overridden with an alternate if desired.

Recommendations to others considering the product

While you can, as a non-programmer, set up your own complete website using WordPress, I would recommend having someone who is experienced do the initial setup for you, especially if you want any sort of customization or special functions. However, since I've never done it, perhaps it's user-friendly enough for a complete novice to take on without a great deal of reading/research. Also, when setting up your website, think of all the things you *might* want to be able to have/do someday - and be sure to convey those to your programmer prior to his/her setting up your site; this knowledge in advance can often help them set things up in such a way that adding those elements later on is much easier (vs. having to 'start over' or 'redo' various elements).

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

The ease of content management without relying on a programmer allows makes maintaining an up-to-date and relevant website much more affordable and convenient for many!

"The standard for bloggers and beginners"

What do you like best?

What I love best about Wordpress is the learning curve is not steep and once you get the hang of things, you can really create an interactive and beautiful website.

What do you dislike?

The load times can be very slow at times. Unless you are paying for a supercharged hosting package, prepare for your site to load a little slower than normal.

Recommendations to others considering the product

I cannot stress this enough. Wordpress is free, so you already save money from the start. Because of this, please invest in a really good wordpress template. There are professionally designed themes that will do most the work for you if you can't code. There are even some amazing free themes out there if you search. Installing is easy. I also highly recommend that WooCommerce be your first plugin you install. It is free and allows you to setup an online store in seconds. I sold a product my very first day. Wordpress makes all this possible and they don't charge for it which is unheard of.

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

One of my main problems was not having a deep knowledge of coding. Wordpress has solved that by allowing a platform of basically drag and drop. You can install a limitless amount of plugins to integrate with your website. I now have two websites with Wordpress and both are very easy to manage. Limited coding has been required although it can come in handy.
