About WordPress

WordPress is a content management system (CMS) which allows people to create, update, and manage websites or blogs with ease. It’s now the most popular CMS worldwide – it’s used by well-known brands e.g. NASA, Kylie Minogue, CNN.
Main benefits

  • It has a theme management system and lots of ready-made professional themes so you can change the appearance of the website at the click of a button.
  • Simple controls for writing and editing – you don’t need to know how to write in HTML or code in order to use it. The buttons are very similar to Word.
  • It has a library of plugins available – this means that if it doesn’t already have a feature that you need, then it’s very likely that there is a plugin to allow you to do it e.g. if you wanted a Google Map to appear you just need to enable the plugin for it.
