WordPress is my content management platform of choice. It is open source with a large and active community. It is based on the open source industry standards: PHP & MySQL.
What I like about WordPress is that it offers developers tremendous flexibility to build highly dynamic, easy-to-maintain sites—with or without blogs. The depth of its plugin library and the elegance of its code reveal their usefulness over time.
WordPress has both inclusive core functionality and an extensive list of third-party plugins.
There are many exciting sites using WordPress today. It’s hard to wrap one’s imagination around the millions of websites that have been built with WordPress. It’s hard to measure but about 21% of the top 10 million websites on the internet worldwide are built with WordPress.
Some high-profile sites include:
