Overall Satisfaction with WordPress

We use WordPress as the content management system for our website. All content runs through WordPress. Several editors, freelance writers, virtual assistants, staff writers and interns use WordPress to build and publish content.
  • WordPress is very easy to use for beginners to CMS. It does not require advanced knowledge of html.
  • The interface is intuitive/easy to navigate.
  • It has been easy for us to add widgets and customize WordPress as we build out our site.
  • It's easy to add new users and manage users.
  • You need an email address that has not been used before to create a new user, but it should be possible to create an account for the purposes of syndicating content. So for example, if I want to syndicate a story from Martha Stewart Living, I should be able to create an account so the byline appears as "Martha Stewart Living" without having to have her email address.
  • Would be great if you could accurately see how many people viewed a story in WordPress. It should be possible to link it to your Google Analytics.
  • Would be cool if there was a way to connect with other similar publishers in your space via WordPress. Like if the dashboard featured similar stories to your content.
  • Ease of use for new hires/writers with little or no experience in CMS has allowed us to hire interns/entry level writers at a junior/inexpensive level. They can produce content for us quickly and easily because of the ease of use.
  • The ease of use has also allowed us to hire virtual assistants abroad to complete admin tasks at a low cost.
  • Top level editors are more efficient because of this as well.
I used another CMS as an intern at New York magazine, but I cannot remember which product it was!
I can't think of a situation where a publisher wouldn't want to use WordPress. It seems like it would be good for both small, medium and large publishers.
