What is Wordpress

What is Wordpress?

Wordpress is a blog and website content management system (CMS) that powers over 20% of blogs and websites on the internet. It can be customised through the use of hundreds of themes that control the look and feel of the website. If you can't see what you want, a custom theme can be created for that absolutely unique look.

Because Wordpress is widely used there is a large developer base that can help you build or develop your website, so you are never trapped by proprietary code from a single developer.

A content management system is software that keeps track of every piece of content on your website. Content is made up of everything from simple text, images, music, video, documents, in fact, any digital media that you can think of.

A CMS has a big advantage over other ways of managing your website content because it needs little or no specific web programming skills in order to manage the website. It's all done through an easy to understand user interface.
