WordPress is best for teams wishing to get off the ground ASAP. It is ready to go and very easy to set up. However, for more advanced capabilities and customization, WordPress may have some weaknesses. Plugins can also get complex, especially when constant updating is required.

WordPress is well suited to most conventional or eCommerce websites. There are features to use the built in database for data driven sections of websites, like a store finder. The flexibility of WordPress can help make it a good choice for almost any website type, but if someone is looking for a very simple one or two page website that will not change much, WordPress may be overkill.

The only time I do not recommend WordPress is if a completely non-techy person wants to create their own website without wanting to learn the basics or hire someone to help them create and/or maintain the site. It's features and capabilities far exceed those by the "do it yourself without any tech knowledge" of Squarespace, Weebly, Wix, etc.

Wordpress is perfect for the blog functionality of a website. The post feature is fantastic - this is my primary use. It is great for a content team who can review content before it is published, schedule postings etc. The Yoast SEO optimisation plugin is also fantastic to help with your keyword language.

I have also used Wordpress to build websites from scratch - it is perfect for Small Businesses who may not have a large budget or experience in web design. The plug-ins require plenty of flexibility and functionality and there is plenty of support in the user forums.

If you need to get a site up & running quickly, wordpress is an excellent option. Out of the box installations do not require knowledge of code, so if you're not a developer, wordpress is again an excellent solution.

If you need a custom site that is outside the scope of a traditional sitemap, wordpress may not be a good option for you. It is not an intranet solution, nor is it a dashboard solution.

Wordpress is well suited for blogs and other informational websites. It allows non-coders to manage their websites without knowing how to code. The content management backend allows admins to easily make updates and add functionality to their site. Although you can certainly use WordPress to build landing pages, I don't think it's an ideal solution. There are other platforms like Unbounce that specialize in landing pages with built-in features specifically for landing page use cases.

WordPress is very well suited to projects that have a short window of time to be implemented, due to its relatively quick setup time. This isn't to say it is not suitable for more complex or well-thought-out implementations, but it just lends itself particularly well to fast turnarounds. It is excellent in scenarios where regular posts of content are required as it was originally set up as a CMS for blogging, but now supports many other content types. With page builders and custom post types, there really aren't many limits to what can be done within WordPress, and really the limitation generally lies with the developer implementing a site with it.

WordPress can be used by anyone to build a basic website. The marketplace for custom templates is absolutely massive. You should be able to find a template to suit your needs for any site. If you are looking for a bunch of custom functionality, such as customer portals, you may be better off with a .NET build out. But if you're on a budget, and don't have super high standards, WordPress can suit that sort of need as well.

Most people equate WordPress with "blogging". WordPress has evolved way beyond blogging to the point where many people are visiting websites that don't look like blogs, but are actually being powered by WordPress.

WordPress would suit most business uses and applications. I would only recommend custom web development work if a business owner cannot get the functionality they need or the web design look they want from a WordPress plugin or theme.

WordPress is well suited to a very wide range of applications and shines when used for content management, periodic news, product information and comparison, and ecommerce applications.

Community interaction websites may not find all of the features they need readily available, and sites needing to display a large amount of data that is heavily cross referenced or that needs very complex data structures may have a hard time building out the necessary site structure.

WordPress is well suited to sites with multiple authors, as each contributor can have a separate login. It also lends itself well to creating news type sites, as content can be uploaded for review by an editor before going live. Frankly, it works for a wide range of sites and situations. However, those who want fine grained control may prefer to create or commission their own custom theme or plugin.

If you're looking to create an application or some type of software system, then WordPress isn't the appropriate choice. WordPress is best used as informational, e-commerce products, and interaction based content to engage with users who are interested in their business/site. However, if you're looking to build a membership site, WordPress has a lot to offer in terms of e-learning functionality with the use of themes or plugins to integrate into the site as well, and should be considered as a serious option for the selection of the business/user that's looking for the right framework/system to use for their site.

WordPress is well suited for traditional blogs (understood primarily as an engine for sequential posts). Where it has become more than blog and can mimic some of the best web designs on the market, you will pay for the consultants, freelancers or on-staff designers and developers needed to make the necessary customization.

Also ask yourself how scaleable, modular, and just downright big your intended site needs to be. The more complex the site, the less likely WordPress is a good solution. For a small company that only needs a few static pages and a place to post news items, WordPress more than does the job.

About WordPress

Wordpress is an open-source publishing platform popular with bloggers and a content management system. The appearance of a Wordpress site and many of its functions are managed through themes, and further customizable through altering code, though altering code is not required; templates and plugins to expand its capabilities are plentiful. Wordpress features integrated link management, and a search-engine friendly permalink structure. WordPress now allows multiple blogs to exist within one installation. Websites may host their own blogging communities, controlling and moderating content from a single dashboard.

 

Wordpress is popular due to its simplicity and modifiability. Furthermore implementing Wordpress costs only time. Two paid versions exist. The $99 premium plan allows a user an ad free custom domain with 13GB of space and advanced customization. The $299 Business plan allows unlimited space and supports eCommerce as well.
