What is WordPress?

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.

Difficult to create content without spending a lot of time to learn it

What is our primary use case?

My experience with WordPress is more in the world of the arts. I think that people are almost using the public part of WordPress to push them through the task of creating things and disciplining themselves each day, as well as entertaining people or educating people or giving people pleasure through their poetry, art, writing, and whatever.

Pros and Cons

  • "I like how it integrates graphics and words, and more generally, the way people can develop the choices of spaces for different websites."
  • "I think that WordPress is too cool in its contact."

What other advice do I have?

Easy to use with many different interfaces to chose from

What is our primary use case?

We use WordPress for both of our websites, www.mainemusicnews.com and www.jolesphotography.com. WordPress has allowed us to maintain our own website at a reasonable cost, giving us the ability to reach people worldwide with our concert photography.

Pros and Cons

  • "We use WordPress on two different websites and it solves all of our website issues."
  • "I would recommend dumping the Gutenberg interface, as that is horrible."

What other advice do I have?

Since it was released, I have been using the classic editor and it works and provides all of the necessary elements. However, I would recommend taking a look at Elementor and seeing how they are implementing the use of blocks in their page builder.
