Meer informatie over WordPress

Pluspunten:

There is a reason that around 1/3 of the internet is built on WordPress and that is because it truly is the best CMS available. I can't imagine a better product backed by a better community.

Minpunten:

Sometimes there is the occasional time where you may have a critical error. The worst thing that can happen to you is that you don't backup your website and then you update and it all goes away.

Joji of web development highly customizable but complex to use

5,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Pluspunten:

Once I got to run through on how to use WordPress, (we use the Divi theme on my website) and I've been learning steadily ever since. It's easy to edit and create content posts and is Web pages.

Minpunten:

It's very complicated to get started. I wouldn't do it by myself. I hired a team to get the website started and whenever I want to add content I have a team start off the design and wireframe of the page while I create and design the content.

Freedom In Website Design and Development with Wordpress

5,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Opmerkingen: I LOVE It! I've used it for years, and I keep learning new stuff all the time.

Pluspunten:

I LOVE the ability to customize and add a variety of added features without being nickeled and dimed for every additional thing. Unlike some other "easier to use" platforms out there, WP offers a lot of customization and many plugins, themes, and extra cost nothing to implement.

Minpunten:

There is a learning curve and it's not beginner-friendly if you know nothing about installing it, etc.

Fine for the basics, out of date for everything else

3,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Pluspunten:

Uploading content is still easy on WP and if you have a good dev build an easy to use and simply designed site, it can be a great option for people just looking to change copy and upload blogs or template pages. Plug-ins help simplify what might be complex for new users such as analytics, tag manager or other integrations, and linking it with things such as Mailchimp and other services is easy.

Minpunten:

Designing on WP is clunky and feels 10 years out of date now. Whilst templates can help - making design amendments or customising blocks feels like running the risk of breaking a theme- and unless you are a front end developer and marketer, is too much of an investment of time Drag and drop editing is not intuitive (unless you have an excellent dev built theme) and you often have to lean on plugins to do jobs that are easy on other platforms. Creating modern, interactive sites that are also easy to amend and add to is too complicated and often not possible. Interactive elements feel like adding PowerPoint animations to your website often and take far longer than other platforms to build and test

WordPress is the way to go

5,0 4 maanden geleden

Pluspunten:

I've been growing with this platform as a developer and entrepreneur. It has been an amazing journey so far because it has shifted from a "blog platform" to a "do whatever you want with it" platform. In my company we've already worked with SO many different project - and some really big. The flexibility of WordPress is amazing and if we know how to work with it, this can be very powerful! I'm obviously referring to the open-source solution, not the wordpress.com version.

Minpunten:

The well known cons are related to the way WP saves information into database and how it works with it. That's basically the biggest problem with it. But that's also something that when we know what we are doing, we can actually play with our own tables or even our separate database, Everything is possible!

The Most Customization Options for Your Website

5,0 vorige maand Nieuw

Opmerkingen: Super flexible. Tons of themes to download that can suit your needs. A huge plugin library. Everything you could need and more without being restricted to base templates with no customizations.

Pluspunten:

WordPress gives me the most freedom out of every other website builder I have tried. There are so many ways you can make your website your own and there is so much documentation if you need support.

Minpunten:

A knowledge of some coding is hugely helpful with WordPress. Not necessarily required, but sometimes there is some WordPress troubleshooting that can be solved easier when you know the code in the background.

Not suited for novice users but excellent for larger companies

4,0 2 maanden geleden Nieuw

Pluspunten:

I appreciate the diverse ability and customization WordPress offers. It's great (I'd even say essential) for larger companies doing business on a greater scale. The best for flexibility

Minpunten:

I took me months to learn Wordpress properly. Once I'd built a website I liked, I found WordPress a bit demanding in terms of maintenance, upkeep and the frequency of update requirements. Definitely not for novice users or those who cannot afford to pay for a development professional to assist in maintaining.

Learning curve but worth it

Opmerkingen: Wordpress is not just plug and play but there are a lot of Youtube videos out there to help you get started. You do need to be somewhat tech-savvy, but not an expert. I love all the different plugins that are available to use.

Pluspunten:

It is very customizable with lots of plugins to use.

Minpunten:

The learning curve is very steep. It is hard to know where to start and what you need to do.

Great tool for web editing

Pluspunten:

Need a Website? WordPress is the One for You!

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: WordPress's freely available website builder has allowed us to create a feature-filled website to which we can add, remove, or change information at a whim through quick access via computer or mobile to the website administration portal. Users can manage or post using both the web interface and the mobile app, which was incredibly useful to us. It has helped us achieve an online presence at a fraction of the cost compared to other platforms.

Pluspunten:

WordPress itself is offered for free as an open source tool (although they do also sell hosting plans and domain names if required). Its website administration portal is very easy to navigate and contains a wealth of help and support information in case you get stuck. There is a large collection of free website layout templates available that can be customised to your liking, as well as a large stock of free user-created plugins in order to add additional functionality to your website (for instance adding custom maintenance pages or contact forms). You can use the WordPress mobile app to manage your website, view visitor statistics, and post to your website.

Minpunten:

Although WordPress itself is freely available to create websites with as an open source tool, they do also sell website hosting plans and domain names on their website; their pricing however is not as competitive compared to other website hosting companies such as GoDaddy or Wix. Recent updates to WordPress include a new post editing interface called 'Gutenberg', which is a radical redesign that may not sit well with those who have experience with and are used to the traditional editing interface of previous versions. Website layouts are somewhat basic using stock design layouts, this can be improved upon by purchasing layout modifying plugins.

Very WordIMPRESSED..... horid cringe worthy pun for some Seriously Amazing Software!

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I am using wordpress to create secure websites for a global audience for a non-profit organization I am hoping to launch within the following month or two. Being non profit, It is imperative that I keep costs as low as possible while ensuring the quality is as good as can bee.

Pluspunten:

There are just so many options. If you know how to code and love those 0's and 1's then maybe something else might be better, but for lame layman like myself that is teaching himself how to webdesign, Wordpress platform has been a godsend. There truly seems to be an infinite number of plugins and themes available, and as it is open source there is little chance developers will be slowing down the momentum in releasing more.

Minpunten:

I think the only frustration was there being too many choices, which is not really the fault of the platform. I spent more time trying to ensure that I was purchasing the best possible addons, plugins, themes and hosting sites for wordpress specific pages and ended up with a library full of plugins ill never use.

Making a Website That You Control Has Never Been Easier

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I have been very happy with WordPress. I taught myself how to navigate the platform and there are so many great resources out there for people to learn.

Pluspunten:

How quickly and easily I can set up a site for someone and teach them to manage it on their own. I hate in my industry that may developers sometimes hold sites for ransom more or less.

Minpunten:

There is a learning curve to it but once you learn the basics you are set! I love that they offer so many plug-ins as well. You can do things that used to take a fortune to get coded all yourself.

One of the best website managers out there

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: It has been a very good experience to get to know wordpress and use it. It has granted us a great tool to manage websites, blogs, communities and landing pages. There is a lot of tutorials and information around, you just have to have the will (and/or time) to keep updating.

Pluspunten:

WordPress is one of the best website managers and content creators. It has tons of templates, addins and is supported almost everywhere (even if you want to install it locally). We have used our website with WordPress for more than 4 years and everytime we need to update or upgrade it, is as simple as to look for a new template, create a backup, install the template and customize it a little bit and in less than a week (sometimes even days) we have it up and running

Minpunten:

The con I could find on Wordpress is that it can sometimes be difficult to keep an eye on the new versions of everything you install. There are updates for the theme, the addins, the plugins, the connectors, etc. What we have agreed to do is to always look to minimize the addons we select for our website to keep this controlable but there is always some antispam addin or comments addin you will eventually need. And sometimes, with the updates, you can get your site broken.

WordPress: A Complete CMS To Start Swiftly Your Brand New Website/Blog

5,0 4 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: WordPress helps to make a powerful website or web application, it suitable if you are in hurry to start your website, it has multiple plugin which saves your development time. With WordPress you can easily build eCommerce based website and other services related websites, within few days if you have all the resources required to build it. My overall experience with WordPress is very impressive.

Pluspunten:

WordPress allows to quickly setup and go live with few customization, I like its installation facility with too easy to use. It has n number of plugin which are free and as well as premium version as well, you may choose accordingly to your requirement. Its best for blogging purpose or for personal website, its easy to maintain and upgrade-able.

Minpunten:

Its become complicated if you install multiple plugin without knowing is it compatible or not. So make sure you must update only when you need to update it. Otherwise its very convenient to use and maintain through out the development stages. It allows to share plugins or code to reuse in other project as well.

The best website software you can use - and it is free!

Opmerkingen: Wordpress allows anyone to start a website. From a simple blog to a v complicated Ecommerce site. Much better than any paid for hosted alternatives.

Pluspunten:

The wordpress community works together to continually improve the basic software to run any kind of website. The software is 100% free and together with a huge amount of free and paid for plugins / themes can be used for eccommerce / blogs you name it. There is also a huge network of users. This allows you find a solution to any problem you might have.

Minpunten:

Sometimes when there is a major update it will take a few weeks to get used to the new version. Sometimes there are compatibility issues with some plugins.

WordPress is ideal for creating websites without coding knowledge

4,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Overall, WordPress is a wonderful and user-friendly platform for creating a website.

Pluspunten:

What is most advantageous is that WordPress offers many options to create a very professional looking website without having to have coding knowledge. Our company reports on incidents globally in real time, so edits must be done in real time with relative ease.

Minpunten:

The countless number of plug-ins can get a bit cumbersome, with some being offered for free, while others are not.

Wordpress is still the best blogging platform

4,0 6 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I run all my sites on Wordpress, ones generating millions of visitors a month to ones with much smaller niche audiences. As long as you don't try to over customize it, meaning having a developer do all these things you think are cool but break Wordpress with updates, it's powerful. Working within what Wordpress offers, and focusing less on technical breakthroughs and more on content and development, I love Wordpress because it's easy to use, affordable, and I can find people to help me easily because tons of smart developers, designers, and writers use Wordpress daily.

Pluspunten:

Wordpress as a blogging platform still outperforms all the others. Yes you can get easy tools like Squarespace and Wix, but they all limit you to ultimately what you want to do, grow. With Wordpress you can start small, grow it gradually, and add everything you need to run a thriving business online, while controlling it all and owning it. I also like the fact that I can find good Wordpress developers and plugins because it is so widely used, making it convenient to get help and not get stuck with a platform that lets you publish and does little else. Sure you need to learn a few things, but ultimately Wordpress is a great value.

Minpunten:

For some it's a bit more technical, requiring a bit of knowledge how it works. The endless updates of plugins and Wordpress itself are challenging to some, but this is a minor problem as long as you know not to use too many plugins and try to overdesign. So if you are not a disciplined user and try to throw all sorts of things around without thinking it through, go to a platform that limits your ability to do that. Wordpress can drive you crazy with its changes, but those changes are indicative across the digital world, and once you basically work it and treat it like a business instead of a hobby, there's no better platform to use.

Hey Look, Another WordPress Site

4,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: WordPress is great for what it is. A content management system for posting. If you are still of the opinion that you need a website, and don't have a lot of skills to do so, WordPress can provide EVERYTHING you need, with the exceptions of what it can't do (and you'll likely hit those barriers, but be okay with it). If you are an advanced web developer, you'll find it intriguing, the simplicity. The difficulty in making a 100% custom theme will likely lead you to a commercial theme (template?), but then you'll settle for something that works, especially a few versions later. Maintaining updates isn't a big deal, but don't let your website go stagnant. Overall, I am happy with what WordPress brings to my table, having multiple sites running the software. It's not perfect, but I don't think there is anything closer.

Pluspunten:

Wordpress is an excellent, low barrier of entry platform (CMS) for the web. It's useful for beginners, and features that will be handy for advanced users. "Web Skills" are not required for anyone, and it's an excellent publishing platform to allow a variety of users, with permissions, access to add content. It's reasonably fast, and has plugins galore. (Boy does it have plugins). There are piles and piles of themes out there, so you can get pretty close to whatever you want out of your WordPress site. There is a nice app that works well for remote posting, but I do prefer my desktop.

Minpunten:

WordPress is basically the #1 CMS in the world. That also means, it's the top targeted platform. Every exploit, web hijack script on earth is targeting your system. Have a strong password, have an SSL key, and keep it up to-date or you will get hacked. And even then, you might still get brute forced. Dynamic sites don't scale very well with a high number of users, or an extreme amount of content. Plugins are a blessing and a curse. You could setup some advanced things that then get "lost" when the plugin is no longer supported. Finding a "Great" theme that's exactly what you want is a challenge. Making your own layout is a beyond the scope of most users. Minor customization are doable (module / drag n drop).

The Easiest Way to Go Online While Having Access to All Necessary Features

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I have used Wordpress quite a few times, both for my personal use and for helping others set up their website. I have found this software to be exactly what I needed, especially when the end user isn't sure about the final approach they want to take in order to display their pages. For this particular reason, the sandboxing features of Wordpress work wonderfully well to show in real-time to the owner of the website how one change in the dashboard will affect the website. It has saved me from many headaches: instead of having to try to fix an obscure bug in an unknown platform, having access to the well-designed and unified interface of Wordpress makes a big difference when maintaining a website. I haven't had to troubleshoot a problem too often, rightly because it just works. And even when the owner make changes, it is usually painless to revert the changes back to a working version thanks to the handy revision history.

Pluspunten:

Wordpress has become so easy to use that it is the platform that I recommend by default to any friend or customer who wants a robust solution while having the freedom to interact with the software. It doesn't require technical abilities very distinct from those necessary to work with a text processor. Setting up a website is a matter of a few minutes as almost everything is automated: there are even many web hosting services that integrate Wordpress and it is as simple as ticking a checkbox to get started in those cases. The administration area or dashboard provides an impressive amount of accessible features, such as the ability to switch themes on the fly, activate, remove or update plugins while displaying the level of compatibility with the current version of Wordpress or modifying many settings for the website. I also like how everything is nicely split into categories: one for posts, one for managing media, one for comments, etc. This makes it effortless to find exactly what one is looking for and there are many plugins available to enhance any aspect of the workflow. Plus, someone who knows this software well can easily modify any moving part as he/she wishes, making for an experience that's apt for any type of user.

Minpunten:

In my opinion, the most complicated facet of managing a Wordpress website is to do with updates. It is practically inevitable that one update will eventually break some functionality in the website which brings confusion, especially to the novice. I should point out that there are plugins available to mitigate those situations (allowing to rollback to previous versions of themes and other plugins), but one has to be careful before blindly applying available updates. One drawback that's to do with the plugin library is the fact that it may be hard to find the appropriate plugin for some specific purposes and the desired features are sometimes available only to paid users, which is totally fine by me, but disappointing for those expecting everything to work out of the box. This drawback aside, the plugin library is really extensive and there are many high-quality plugins to choose from, reducing even further the technical knowledge that the administrator needs in order to make things work without too much hassle.

Why I use WordPress for all my websites

5,0 5 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I am an ex nurse who had never touched a website. As a total web novice I learned how to communicate a message about problems with the healthcare industry. I gradually learnt about embedding images, then videos, then podcasts and PDF's. As the information I wished to give people grew, I was always able to find a WordPress plugin or theme to give me the power that normally would only belong to full stack developers. Now I share large amounts of data on my site, embed multimedia and share information easily on social media sites. I have done inexpensive online courses on WordPress, but am basically self-taught. I am very grateful to WordPress for having made web communication available to everybody. WordPress now powers 1/4 of the world's websites. Anytime I have an issue, there is a huge community of users who have cheerfully created uTube videos and tutorials, explaining how to fix virtually every problem.

Pluspunten:

In one word - community. WordPress is supported by a huge global community. While the software is a MySQL database, it's open source framework allows developers from around the world to build free and very low cost software add ons, or 'plugins'. WordPress powers eCommerce sites, Newspapers, Directories, Music sites, podcasts and more. From a single page advertising a coffee shop to an online store selling thousands of items, WordPress has the capability to communicate your digital message to the world, in any language, any format and connecting to any major platform.

Minpunten:

If you don't write code, WordPress gives you a 'go between', a content management system that looks like word processing software to the user, but generates the appropriate HTML, CSS, PHP, JAVASCRIPT behind the scenes. Unlike traditional coding software like dreamweaver that use FTP (file transfer protocol) to update your site on the server, WordPress updates are done directly (and continuously) from your WordPress dashboard. This gives a more intimate feel but a slower work load. WordPress started out as blogging software and that beginning unpins its current format. Some plugins are buggy, will clash with other plugins and can even break your site. Sticking with mainstream ones (that often require a minimal payment) is safest.

Putting High Priced Development Agencies Out of Business Across the Globe

5,0 7 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: Wordpress is without question, one of the best, most flexible, easy to use, open source web platforms available. With literally thousands of free and premium website templates and plugins available, there's no shortage of possibilities for small businesses or hobbyists looking to build a website. For hobbyists or those looking to create a personal website, I'd highly recommend using one of the free templates available on www.wordpress.org. There are a wide variety of templates available, from education to sports and everything in between, making web development and content creation quick and easy. For small businesses or organizations, I'd look to purchase a pre-made template from a premium provider for a nominal fee. In most instances, the quality and flexibility of the paid-for template far exceed that of the free offerings. In most cases, even with Wordpress plugins, the templates are meant to operate without the need for additional development or coding. This means that your average tech or computer enthusiast can easily setup the site within minutes and begin authoring content and personalizing the site without the assistance of software developers. In addition, hosting companies, who now feature exclusive Wordpress hosting options, have made setup an absolute breeze. Even the most novice Wordpress users can now purchase a domain, hosting services, and install a template in under 30 minutes.

Pluspunten:

Wordpress makes creating websites achievable for even the most novice website developers. With literally thousands of pre-made website templates and plugins, everything from form development, image galleries, video players, and more is as easy as installing a plugin or toggling on a preference. If bespoke development is required, hiring someone to assist is just as easy as the platform is incredibly flexible and easy to build on.

Minpunten:

As an open source community, Wordpress does not come with standard support that you might expect from a typical, enterprise level software provider. As such, any web development, troubleshooting or difficulties that may arise will need to be handled by a professional. This typically means hiring an hourly consultant/developer to fix any issues that may arise. That said, it will come at a fraction of the cost it would typically cost when building a site from scratch.

The evelution of web site deployment

5,0 2 jaar geleden

Opmerkingen: I've developed websites since before the internet was a thing. Started with text html, then Microsoft Frontpage, adobe's app, several sites you build on their domain, Joomla, now WordPress. Make sure you pick a "language" or tool you can take from one domain to another and a tool that will be around in ten years. Even Microsoft'S tool is gone.

Pluspunten:

Plug-ins are plentiful, showing the test of time, software updates don't negate your previous experience

Minpunten:

First site will take some learning. Take the time before building or even messing around with this app to learn its lingo and their differences (page, blog, post, template, themes, menus, widgets...). They have nuances you need to understand.

The Easiest, Most Versatile CMS For Non-Developers. Open Source, Massive Library of Free Plugins.

5,0 6 jaar geleden

Pluspunten:

As the owner of a web agency, I tried quite a few solutions over the past 5 years. I really love Wordpress because it's not just very simple to use such as self-hosted page builders out there, but it's also extremely expendable. If you are an online marketer, a blogger or just somebody starting out with building websites, Wordpress is your go-to solution. I'm not trying to sound overly happy here, but Wordpress is truly a fantastic piece of software. Here is what I especially like about Wordpress: - Very easy to set up, I never had any problems with it, regardless of server configuration - The amount of free plugins is HUGE! Where you are paying for add-ons in other CMS's, Wordpress usually offers the plugins for free - The user base is gigantic so you can get support from 360°: meetups, online, friends, colleagues etc. - Customers love the simple backend and even the most technically inept people can make changes in the really simple UI - Great selection of themes to choose from at very affordable prices. - Ideal for bloggers, online marketers, community builders etc. because there are lots of existing solutions already out there - Built-in versioning makes it super easy to restore a text draft from months ago and undo changes you did to your posts and pages

Minpunten:

Rights management is definitely not a strong suit of Wordpress. In this case a more complex solution like Drupal might be better suitable. Security is still a big issue in Wordpress and lots of standard features like email obfuscation are not built in like in other CMS's. Thus you will be the target of hacker and spam attacks soon. To be fair, I must add though that a lot of security issues can be solved by regularly updating Wordpress and all its plugins. The main problem though is that Wordpress is so well-known, hackers look for Wordpress sites more often than they look for other CMS's. That's mostly it. Apart from that I'm pretty happy with Wordpress!
