What is WordPress?

WordPress was originally designed as a blogging platform – an easy to use web platform that allowed users to quickly and update their own “blogs” (think online diary)

Since the early days of WordPress it has gone on to grow into the most popular CMS (Content Management System) on the internet – just take a look at some of the staggering WordPress statistics below to see how popular it is.

What makes WordPress so popular?

1. Ease of use – WordPress is very user friendly and most people can manage their own website and content with very little training.
2. Expandability – By using “plugins” you can add extra functionality to WordPress.
3. Upgradable – WordPress has a built in upgrade system whereby the core of the wordpress platform can be upgraded to the latest version and also the plugins can be individually updated. It’s important to keep wordpress and the plugins updated for security reasons and to also get the latest functionality.
