WordPress is a robust, open-source content management system (CMS) that provides both structure and flexibility to developers for the creation and management of their websites.
WordPress has website configuration, permissions, security, media handling, database capabilities, and standards enforcement. It does an especially good job standardizing the implementation of themes and plugins. This allows significant plug and play ability with thousands of ‘themes’ (controlling of look and feel) and ‘plugins’ (providing functions) exist for WordPress – both free and premium.
This solid foundation, combined with its extensibility, makes WordPress a great environment to develop a website.aAs a result, WordPress has a significant market share in the CMS space.
