This CMS is every content editor's and infrequent bloggers best friend. Super easy to use, extremely intuitive and has a friendly coolness to it.
WordPress is an open source, PHP-based CMS and with that comes the flexibility that allows developers to create any manner of complex features or functions - so while it has this easy-to-use exterior, inside it is the little engine that rocks!
Its pros and cons are all wrapped up in the plug ins. Tons and tons (literally thousands) are available; there are plugins to do whatever you want. But there's the rub, the plugin needs to be maintained, and sometime it's not - which leads to upgrade issues. If the CMS is upgraded frequently and consistently it performs like a champ - but this is a little bit of high maintenance CMS.
We've designed and built a number of WordPress websites for institutions of higher education, nonprofits, associations, and businesses, and some of them utilize our Webmaster Service maintenance to help maintain their websites.
