Overall Satisfaction with WordPress

We use WordPress for our own website as well as several clients. Using the new BigCommerce App integration we have two clients that are now selling their products on separate websites increasing their web presence. This is a very cost effective way to expand on the web. The amount of Plug-ins for WordPress make customization very easy.
  • Ease of Setup
  • The extensive library of Plug-ins
  • They have out-of-the-box themes for most site clients
  • It is difficult to use multiple themes on one website
  • The dashboard is a bit dated and unorganized
  • Some themes are difficult to customize
  • The cost to operate a WordPress site is extremly cost effective
  • Gives a very professional look and drives customer leads
  • The cost of some plug-ins is high and many do not have trial options
WordPress is light years ahead of Squarespace in terms of customization, ease of use and plug-ins available
Pros:
  • Low cost of acquisition
  • Multiple hosting options
  • Easy to use
  • Very Customizable
  • A large amount of free plug-ins
  • Very stable platform
Cons:
  • The dashboard could be better organized
  • Can be difficult for the novice to customize the theme
  • You need to ensure the plug-in is compatible with your
    version of WordPress or you may have site issues
  • You need to make sure you have backups of your site, not an automated process
