WordPress: CMS not just for bloggers

The Variety of plug-ins is basically a great strength of WordPress - but not always an advantage due to the already mentioned security risks due to outdated or faulty extensions. Other shortcomings are the limited options for distributing users and rights and the comparatively complicated implementation of a multilingual website. The missing functions can be retrofitted via extensions, but for the implementation of very complex websites you usually have to lots of plug-in settings make - one of the main disadvantages of WordPress.

Overall, however, the strengths predominate - it is not without reason that WordPress leaves no doubt about its top position compared to the competition: It is that internationally by far the most used CMS. If you use WordPress as your CMS, you benefit from this popularity because the great community not only ensures an immense replenishment of plug-ins and themes, but also helps you quickly if you have any questions or difficulties. You also benefit from regular system updates. And if you ever need professional help, you can take advantage of the support of various external service providers who specialize in looking after WordPress.

Another big advantage of the CMS market leader is that easy to use - especially for laypeople. With the WYSIWYG editor, the drag-and-drop operation, a practical media library and other useful functions, you can also remarkable results without knowledge of HTML achieve in web design.
