WordPress is the king... it has the most plugins and the most dev force behind it. Sometimes it can be clunky but you won't find a more capable system

i like it because it is simple to use but there are other alternatives that do the same thing with more features that dont get as much attention like wordpress. all in all its a good app


Not all that great

about WordPress and Contao · · 1 Helpful

It's a blog gone CMS, and it shows. Not from a user's POV, but from a developer's it's kind of messy to implement a design I have to say. Tried Contao and I haven't looked back ever since.


The best.

It's free, and the best CMS (site management controller). Not as customizable as drupal, but unlike drupal, I have not had a single problem. All the plugins install and uninstall smoothly without currupting everything. Simple yet complex. Very stable, and endless support. Thousands of themes to choose from.

I had a custom, ad-hoc blogging software that I had coded and designed for my own needs, but I just couldn't compete with the competent team of developers that is behind Wordpress. I switched to it eight months ago and never looked back.
