Why I choose WordPress for my business and my clients

5.0 4 weeks ago New

Comments: Love it.
Love to hate it!
Best Hosting platform out there!

Pros:

Overall best web hosting platform. Access to plugins for every solution. Lots of public documentation to learn from/use. Lots of developers out there. Lots of features with baseline product.

Cons:

Needs a plugin for everything. It can be very difficult to reach peak design & functionality. Very easy to set up basic site.

Comments: My overall experience with WordPress is pretty good I've been using them for years took me a while to learn how to use a platform as there's a little learning curve but this is the leading standard platform if you're building websites you should start with WordPress as if you master this every other builder will be easy for you to use as most nowadays are drag and drop.

Pros:

WordPress is a universal platform They also have many apps and plugins that you can use with the system there's a slight learning curve with WordPress it's more for advanced users but they do have plugins that allow it even newbies to get started so I love this.

Cons:

I wish WordPress was a little easier to use for newbies but through their plugins system they have pretty much solved this problem.

Wordpress, NOT for Complete Beginners

3.0 4 years ago

Comments: Although Wordpress is a fairly fast and easy way to get website up and running relatively fast, it requires a lot of upkeep, maintenance, and constant monitoring and continuous configuring of code updates and settings to keep running smoothly and safely in the long run. Do not reccomend to complete beginners or novices. Highly recommend to business owners who have a budget for proper upkeep and maintenance.

Pros:

Highly customizable with extensive knowledge and experience

Cons:

Doesn't work out the box, needs a lot of customization and configuring in order to work properly, not for Complete beginners.

Freedom In Website Design and Development with Wordpress

5.0 4 months ago

Comments: I LOVE It! I've used it for years, and I keep learning new stuff all the time.

Pros:

I LOVE the ability to customize and add a variety of added features without being nickeled and dimed for every additional thing. Unlike some other "easier to use" platforms out there, WP offers a lot of customization and many plugins, themes, and extra cost nothing to implement.

Cons:

There is a learning curve and it's not beginner-friendly if you know nothing about installing it, etc.
