  • Simple. Simple. Simple. From one-click installs to one-click maintenance updates, the management of WordPress is a delight.

  • User versatility - the ability to assign user roles allows non-technical people to work and maintain your site's content. You can share the workload safely.

  • Complex enhancements are not overly complex. Including the wealth of knowledge from developers, it is generally trivial to integrate with other systems.

"I have been using WordPress since last decade. I have tried in many webhosting providers. Possibly had Installed hundreds of Instances of WordPress for testing and live hosting, even few for customers also. It is a time saver and because of extensive availability of themes and plugins, you can create Unique websites for different business needs. Its really positive and helpful.

CONS

  • Security. I have had several instances in working with WordPress over the years where security has been compromised. In all situations, it was related to unpatched installs but brings light to the fact that the system cannot be left alone. Regular maintenance is a must.

  • Sketchy third-party plug-ins. With 50,000+ plug-ins available, this isn't the Apple-curated App Store and some of the plug-ins can be questionable in both their quality and data collection habits. You should always be careful of where you download your plug-ins from. And ALWAYS keep them up-to-date (see point #1).

  • The amount of change can be somewhat of a workload to keep up with. Although it is not difficult and often 'one-click' in nature, it is not a set-it-and-forget-it type of platform.
