We asked business professionals to review the solutions they use. Here are some excerpts of what they said:
"Manageability is very good and probably the most valuable part of a tool of this type. There is a little more of a learning curve than you have with a simple tool, but a business user can learn to manage the system as an administrator very easily."
"We chose Liferay because it is open-source and that we can make any number of users apply, register into the system and use the system, as opposed to other solutions where the cost is based on user licenses. This is one of the most attractive features."
"The solution is easy to install."
"The look and feel and the user interface are great."
"I like how it integrates graphics and words, and more generally, the way people can develop the choices of spaces for different websites."
"We use WordPress on two different websites and it solves all of our website issues."
"It could have better built-in integration with a wider variety of extensions out-of-the-box."
"The integration and configuration need to be simplified."
"The documentation provided needs to be more detailed. It's sometimes hard to develop things because the documentation is so sparse."
"The plugins should be more affordable."
"I think that WordPress is too cool in its contact."
"I would recommend dumping the Gutenberg interface, as that is horrible."
"It's an open-source structure. Other costs are for professional services to integrate Liferay to other existing systems."
"Licensing costs can be very expensive."
"I paid to have a WordPress site for two years and didn't just have a free one."
WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. WordPress is installed on a web server, which either is part of an Internet hosting service or is a network host itself; the first case may be on a service like WordPress.com, for example, and the second case is a computer running the software package WordPress.org. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system.
