What exactly is WordPress?

When I develop a website for a client, I used to ask his preferences like which framework he want me use. One option in that is always WordPress.

If they don’t know what exactly is WordPress. They ask 1 of the following 2 questions:

  1. What is WordPress?
  2. Isn’t wordpress used for creating blogs.

So, I this post, I will tell you what exactly is wordpress without using much of technical stuff.

WordPress is a CMS (Content Management System) which means it’s a framework/tool through which you can easily manage the content of a website. Blog is one of the most popular feature of WordPress but its not limited to that only. Right now, one can create any kind of website through it. The wordpress market is grown so much that one can find lots of plugins & themes which helps developer to customize the website according to client’s need.

Plugin is a piece of functionality which can be added in the website. Example, one can add a plugin for image gallery in the website.

Theme is a template of your website. You can find lots of free and paid wordpress themes over the internet.

Not just this, developers can create custom plugins & themes as per the need of the client. Like if the client have a specific design in their mind or in photoshop format. A good developer like me 😛 can convert it into an awesome wordpress website where client can edit its content by logging into the admin section.
