    WordPress vs Kirby opinions
    pros, cons and recent comments
    tuva-hayabi

    WordPress is powerful, no question, but it is also an overfatted content management system nowadays and an extremely popular target for crackers. Kirby is slim, databaseless, and the content can be managed very easily.

    Kirby does not need a database either, but it is more flexible than Grav in my opinion. I like both.
