What is WordPress?

From Wikipedia, where all good information comes from:

“WordPress is a free and open source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress was used by more than 22.0% of the top 10 million websites as of August 2013. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites.”

But what is it REALLY? In the simplest of terms, it’s a relatively quick and easy way to have a really nice website that is easy to maintain. You don’t need to know HTML or CSS or even know what those letters mean. You don’t need to know what “CMS” stands for or why “PHP” and “MySQL” have anything to do with anything.

You can manage most of the content on your site from any computer with internet access.

Although WordPress has an undeserved reputation as merely being a tool for lonely bloggers, you’ll be happy to know that WordPress is currently helping to power CNN, NASA, BBC America, TIME Magazine, Playstation, Sony, Forbes, Ford, etc, etc… and you can use it, too.
