Launched back in 2003, WordPress has come a long way with the most popular content management system tag in its kitty. Unlike other free and open source solutions that have some hidden issues, WordPress is absolutely free in and out. Currently in use by some 74 million websites, another interesting feature about WordPress is that it doesn’t close off any of its code from you. So being more transparent than others definitely gives WordPress an upper edge over other CMSs.
Let’s have a look over what makes WordPress so special from others:
Excellent Plugin Support:
You can find many platforms those provide plugin functionality, but WordPress has a very thorough implementation than the plugin effort on WordPress.org. Now what exactly these plugins do exactly is; it allows you to add great photo galleries, sliders shopping carts, maps, forums and much more great functionalities. There is a whole searchable one click install directory of plugins (think AppStore for WordPress). Their code is riddled with “hooks” that allow developers to add their code to virtually any aspect of WordPress without editing the core.
