Seven reasons why Word Press is the best CMS

Filed Under (Wordpress) by WDCore Editorial on 09-02-2012

Tagged Under :

With every day that has passed, Word Press has become a more and more important entity within the online environment. The amount of websites based on this CMS (Content Management System) is constantly increasing and the community around it is quickly solving almost any issues related to it. Fortunately for the Internet users, there are multiple solutions; plus, there are others CMSs also very reliable, secure and easy to use. The competition is fierce and the winner is, obviously, the user.
We are frequently talking about CMSs and their advantages, but what is in fact CMS? The theoretical definitions are many and few people manage to deeply understand them. The more practical description (lacking any sign of professionalism) is that a CMS is that support allowing the creation, editing, manipulation and online publishing of the content. The idea is very simple: in the before Word Press era, it was difficult to keep a website updated, usually, any modification needed the action of specialists hence two important resources were required: the money for the specialist payment and the time invested in him. Once Word Press was born, the management of a website was way simpler and faster; someone said, and he is totally right, anyone who decently knows how to work with Microsoft Word, will learn how to use this “magical” platform.
As I said, the concurrence is close, by far Word Press isn’t the single solution, but here are some reasons to make anyone comprehend that it is the best and at least deserves to be tested. Nothing is perfect in this world and surely, Word Press has enough defects, it is to be perfected and many people are involved in making it better. The good news is that anyone may get involved in improving it, hence don’t be shy, try it and expose your opinions.

1.It’s very easy to use

Word Press is liked by so many people because it’s very easy to use. Often times, designers ignore the huge advantage of easiness just because they are very used to any graphical interface. Clearly, this CMS isn’t created for specialists or Internet addicts, it is for everyone. These features, in addition to the high quality are the main ingredients that crown Word Press as the leading CMS.
