WordPress Review

A stable system which offers a wide variety of themes and templates

What is our primary use case?

WordPress is the only Content Management system which I am presently using for building professional websites and blogs. It is a great application which gives an all-in-one solution for creating stunning websites. 

There is no need for experience in hard coding. Although, some expertise is still needed for customization.

How has it helped my organization?

It is a leading content management system, where it is easy to create nearly all types of websites and blogs. It is also a stable system which offers a wide variety of themes and templates.

What is most valuable?

  • Very stable and easy to use content management system.
  • Friendly for creating blogs.
  • Thousands of themes available for free and premium.
  • Availability of thousands of plugins for extending functions.

What needs improvement?

The system should be more informative. E.g., if there is an error in uploading a theme or there is some issue with a plugin, WordPress should describe the error in a more descriptive way and also should explain the solution. This way it could become more user-friendly and easier to work with.

For how long have I used the solution?

More than five years.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

WordPress is stable. Only a few times would there be issues, but those came only from hosting or other similar issues.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Sometimes there are issues, but not frequently.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is okay. Generally, it goes with the theme owner. The service provider is sometimes fast in responding, and sometimes not.

Which solution did I use previously and why did I switch?

I tried Joomla and Drupal, but found WordPress to be better. It was better for me in terms of ease to use, availability of themes, and plugins.

How was the initial setup?

Sometimes, it was straightforward. Sometimes, it was complex. It depended upon the themes and plugins that I used.

What about the implementation team?

We implemented it in-house.

What was our ROI?

The ROI is very good. It provides a high ROI.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

Set up cost is nothing. Pricing is free. You need to pay a cost only for the domains, hosting, and to buy themes.

Which other solutions did I evaluate?

I evaluated Joomla and Drupal.

What other advice do I have?

This is the best solution for building a quick website.
