WordPress Review: "Come for the Price, Stay for the Community"

Score 8 out of 10
Vetted Review

Review Source

Pros and Cons

  • WordPress is quick to implement and have up and running. The combination of the quick installation to the user-friendly interface of the back end, makes WordPress a great tool for experts and novices alike.
  • There is a huge community of developers and experts to provide customization and tips for any website. A quick Google search will find numerous solutions to most WordPress and website issues that may arise.
  • Plugins everywhere! This is great because there are options for plugins. Some other CMS solutions offer one or two options for different features, but WordPress has multiple options and allows you to find free and more premium options.
  • Because it is built using free and open source platforms, there are no additional software or specialty hardware costs needed to get a website up and running. Just a basic website package will do.
  • Security can be an issue, because you are dealing with both core WordPress code, and any plugin code. WordPress is usually quick with updates, and does a good job of keeping up on any possible security issues. But, plugins can be a different story. Add to that, as one of the largest CMS systems around, it is often a target of attackers.
  • The plugin marketplace can be a minefield. While there is a review process, we find that we have to be very vigilant in looking for plugins that are actively being patched and updated.
  • The extensible of WordPress can make it slow. If we are not careful with our plugins and customizations, we can sometimes create sites that do not perform up to web standards.

Pros and Cons

  • User roles. Plenty of variety here that gives different people appropriate access.
  • Easy to write your own plugins. Or if you're not that tech-savvy, there are several great, free plugins out there that are easy to install & easy to use.
  • Multisite support, which is great if you have several locations or subdomains to manage. You can use the same install across all of these.
  • Security. Being open-source, it is a big target for hackers. The folder structure is very predictable.
  • Page speed. It is relatively lightweight, but there are a few script files that are built into the CMS that makes compression tricky at times.

Pros and Cons

  • WordPress allows us to create websites quicker because it provides a number of built in systems so we don't have to develop from ground up.
  • WordPress makes it easier for non-coders to manager their websites through the content management system admin interface.
  • There is a massive WordPress community that you can use as support and third party plugins that you can select from to extend the functionality of your site outside of the standard Wordpress themes.
  • Sometimes there are too many plugins to choose from for a specific need. It requires you to try and test multiple ones to find the right fit for your site.
  • WordPress can run slow if you use too many plugins and don't do any speed optimizations within your configurations.
  • Plugins and WordPress make a numerous updates throughout the year. In order to keep up with the latest updates and security patches, you must keep up and update as new releases come out.

Review: "WordPress is the Website Software to Use"

Score 10 out of 10
Vetted Review

Pros and Cons

  • WordPress is adaptable. No company is the same. A website building tool should be able to reflect the needs of the business. All too often a software’s limitation dictates what a client can or cannot do. The business should make the choices, not the program.
  • It is widely used. The familiarity of WordPress is great for companies without a dedicated tech team. Finding someone to change or fix a bug isn’t hard.
  • User roles. Having different permissions and user roles is very beneficial. It allows people with different abilities and comfort levels to use and interact with a site’s content.
  • I’ve been very pleased with WordPress. Though I’ve found that with the increasing ability to change the design and look of a site, it is easy to have custom CSS in multiple spots.

Pros and Cons

  • It is a relatively easy to manage content management system for business sites, personal and professional blog sites and e-commerce sites.
  • WordPress has an impressive number of free and paid plugins that are regularly updated to manage security, seo and other functionality.
  • WordPress has an impressive number of well-written themes so that one does not have to be a programmer to create and/or update their site.
  • WordPress consistently does updates to the platform for usability and security. I do not see any inherent problems with how WordPress operates.
  • There is some confusion between wordpress.com (all-in-one blogging platform) and wordpress.org (self-hosted) that I personally feel should be separated. I've had some clients sign up and pay through wordpress.com when they should be using (free) wordpress.org which can be a pain.

Pros and Cons

  • WordPress is free, first of all. Of course, if you are building out a custom site, you may need to purchase a Bootstrap template or build your own in-house, but otherwise, the CMS is open source.
  • WordPress makes it easy for our client to do basic updates or post to a blog or news feed. Not all take advantage of this, of course, but WordPress provides a simple dashboard that is easily navigated with very little training on our part.
  • The breadth of plugins has grown immensely over the past few years. For anything you need to be able to do with WordPress, you can usually find a plugin to solve your problem.
  • The text editor leaves a little to be desired but is easy to work around once you know its limitations.
  • SEO is a bit tricky with WordPress. Some of the plugins that are available don't seem to help you a lot with SEO, and may actually hurt, in my opinion.

  • WordPress allows users with no technical knowledge or coding skills to be in complete control of their web presence.
  • WordPress can save business owners thousands of dollars in web development and web design costs.
  • WordPress is a powerful, secure and highly scalable online content publishing platform and business marketing tool that costs almost nothing to run.
  • WordPress can be configured to automate many areas of website management and online marketing, including automatic updates and automatically driving visitors from search engines and social networks to your site whenever new content is published.
  • WordPress is open source software and benefits from the contribution of thousands of community users, including web developers and web designers.
  • WordPress is regularly updated (on average every 3 months) to provide users with new features, bug fixes, and to address security vulnerabilities found in previous versions.
  • WordPress is the most popular and fastest growing content management system in the world
  • I have written a detailed article listing 50 reasons why WordPress is the ideal choice for most website owners here: http://wptrainme.com/wordpress/50-great-reasons-why-you-should-choose-wordpress
  • The biggest challenge I have found with WordPress is training - helping clients and business owners understand just how much they can achieve with WordPress. Even though there is so much great information online about WordPress, most of it is not organized into a logical system, or aimed at technical users. This is why I have years developing a comprehensive WordPress 'A-Z' training system that takes users step-by-step through every aspect of using WordPress.

Pros and Cons

  • The blogging engine is really powerful, with a simple UI, and well-developed, polished features.
  • SEO (search engine optimization) is very good built into Wordpress and can be made even better with plugins, like Yoast SEO.
  • From a development standpoint, Wordpress is very flexible. I was able to exactly duplicate the design of our main website, even though it isn't run on Wordpress. This creates a seamless experience for visitors.
  • The user-security model out of the box is adequate, but it could be more explicate and robust. There are numerous plugins that do help with this, however.
  • The plugin directory should force plugin developers to be more out right about what the free version vs. paid version of plugins do.

  • WordPress has been slow to implement an internal API, though this should be addressed over the next year.
  • The sheer number of plugins and themes available can be overwhelming to new users.

Pros and Cons

  • One of the best features of WordPress is that it is easy to add, edit and update site content. Anyone who can use wordprocessing software can use WordPress. It's also simple to illustrate your content with images.
  • I particularly enjoy the ability to update site functionality via plugins. Although using too many plugins can slow a WordPress based site down, there are some crucial plugins that improve the basic installation.
  • It's also great that you can change the design easily at a range of price points, using free, freemium or premium themes.
  • While one of the strengths of WordPress is the ability to change your site without coding, the ability to manually edit core files can be a weakness, as users can break the site without knowing what they are doing. However, there is plenty of online help so you can avoid this.
  • Not all WordPress themes and plugins work as intended or play nicely together. This may not be because of WordPress itself, but can cause issues. It pays to do some research before installing something new.
  • An issue which is less common now is pasting content from Word and having strange characters appear when the post is published. Recent updates seem to have solved that problem, but if you are running an older version of the software, it's worth upgrading. Upgrading is also good for security.

  • WordPress can handle a broad array of content-centric sites from static sites, to a blog, to a mixed media site, to a content heavy site like TechCrunch.
  • Most mainstream site scenarios can be built using WordPress, up to the point where a high I/O or real-time webapp needed instead.
  • High I/O or real-time webapps.
  • High concurrent user sites. The server environment would need to be tuned to handle this, but the same can be said for most development platforms out there.

Pros and Cons

  • WordPress is easy for end users to add content to keep their sites fresh and attract search engines and readers to their websites.
  • Because of the widespread use of this free open source software, there is a huge development community helping it to grow. There are over 2,600 plugins which add extra functionality to WordPress out of the box, and thousands of free and premium themes to help people get started with their websites.
  • The WordPress community is helpful and gives away lots of free information on the web and in person. Local WordPress users have WordPress Meetups. all over the country where we put on trainings. Our community organizes WordCamps in major cities all over the world, with tickets priced around 20.00 a day, with tracks geared to WordPress beginners, users, designers and developers
  • WordPress is not easy for end users to fully customize. So if they have very particular needs they should have someone experienced set up the website.
  • It is so easy to use that people who don't know how to do web marketing create sites that are not very effective.
  • Programmers who don't take enough time to get to know the WordPress built in capabilities, end up hardcoding everything which then leaves their clients with a site that cannot be used effectively.

Pros and Cons

  • WordPress is a free to use, continuously updated with new features, quality product maintained, framework that can be easily installed on almost any server in the matter of minutes. This feature alone gives you the type of service that most paid systems would give you, but instead, it's absolutely free.
  • WordPress and third party companies offer many WordPress themes that are perfect for almost every type of website that you can think of making as a business or for personal use. The cost of these themes varies from Free - to upwards of $150 as the highest priced theme that I have personally seen on the market. You can also hire a developer to create your own custom theme with the needed requirements you would like as well, and that can range anywhere from $800 - $5,000 or more depending on the developer and the requirements of your site.
  • WordPress and third parties also offer many WordPress plugins that provide the business/user's website with specific functionality that the Wordpress framework and possibly their currently installed WordPress theme may not offer. Plugins can range from Free - $200 or more from my own personal experience looking across the internet on all the different websites that offer their plugin products. You can also hire a developer to create a custom WordPress plugin that meets your specific requirements as well. This can cost anywhere from $100 - $1,500 or more depending on the specific needs of the plugin you are looking to have created.
  • Wordpress offers ease of use for updating content for people who may not be so website savvy when it comes to the structure, lingo, or code layout. There are many options to customize your website with content using a visual composer plugin, or built in feature of a theme, or the WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) that's built into the WordPress framework already.
  • WordPress has been improving their framework since the beginning of development. If I would say that WordPress has room for improvement, it would be giving itself the ability to host plugins on a remote location to call functions from so that the use of many plugins won't disrupt the site's load speed times, which effects the overall experience of the site's users.
  • I think that WordPress can expand on some of their customization features to allow a simpler, faster way of getting your brand in the framework. Though this is capable through plugins that are out there, I think WordPress could alleviate the use of a lot of plugins if they incorporate some of the major used plugins features within the framework itself.
  • I think that WordPress can improve on the ease of use in connecting their members management functionality with outside source software that companies may be offering as a SaaS to their customers, and using WordPress as their main site that stores the sales information and sign-up features.

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.
