What is WordPress?
Currently WordPress is one of the most popular web blogging software. It is the most common choice for blog users because it provides:
- Ease of use and versatility. WordPress is suitable for just about anybody – from the absolute novice to the advanced programmer.
- Feature-rich interface. WordPress has a rich text editor with advanced multimedia support;
- Expandable. WordPress’s community distributes a large number of modules for almost any popular website feature;
- It is Open Source. It is free to install and use WordPress for your your site.
This is to arouse awareness to custom wordpress installation users. Hardly 15% of them have lined with the latest version. You won’t learn how but you will see what the threats are and what options you have to be on the most safe side.
WordPress started out as a simple way to share your thoughts on the web through, what was then, a new concept, blogging. People wanted to keep “web logs” of their thoughts and have other people read them and contribute comments.
So WordPress was born to blog and it still does an outstanding job, but has grown into a content management system (CMS) which is something much more.
WordPress is truly astounding. Whether pushing content to social networks, competing for sales and search engine position, allowing people to subscribe to specific content WordPress is not simply a website, but rather a content-publishing platform.
It allows you to take part in today’s “instant” information network – the internet. It gives an individual the same publishing power as a major corporation.
According to the WordPress Codex, “WordPress powers nearly a quarter of new sites today, is the content management system (CMS) of choice for more than two thirds of the top million sites making it the most popular on the web, and is trusted by content publishers both large and small including CNN and the NY Times. With more than 50 million sites globally and eight years of history.”
