Not all that great

about WordPress and Contao · · Helpful Not helpful 3 Helpful Report as spam

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.

great software, but don't be fooled into using wordpress.com's supposedly VIP hosting. They will give you a crippled version of the website which is barely customizable. You will be locked into one of their themes and unable to change it without paying for a much more expensive business package.

It's the king for a reason

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

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.

yes you are right. it is much better than drupal, Joomla also very easy to customize.

I've now used Wordpress for 11 fantastic years and it just gets better and better. It doesn't only have to be used for blogging these days, all sorts of website types can be made with it.

Love it! So easy to make a website with. Yeah you can use HTML code, but really in 2018? WordPress saves you time so you can program other stuff.

Great platform I hear google is going to invest more into WordPress so that it may support some of the latest technologies. Would highly recommend to users who are not web developers.

i am using wordpress.com and i think it was not bad but...

for free users, it will be more benefits to use blogger because :

  • free wordpress.com doesnt let you monetize, and instead they put their own ads on our posts
  • free wordpress.com doesnt let you use plugin or customize HTML, which is limited customization

some wordpress fatal weakness :

  • this is applies to every wordpress even open source which is wordpress.org, the categorization are very complicated because it must have one category which is called uncategorized !

Imagine there is hundreds of posts with uncategorized category, it will be hard to remove those uncategorized, because you will need to create new category, then set them to these new category, in order to remove uncategorized with exchange those new category become the new uncategorized ! which doesn't offer efficiency

  • Dashboard Performance, compared to blogspot, is very slow which is 10x slower, because wordpress dashboard has delay of 1-2 seconds of every action, and up to 1 minute of every bulk actions, and may costs 10-20 minutes for import/export entire content.

when i am using blogspot, it was very fast because it took only half second of every action, 1-2 seconds of bulk actions, and 1 minute or less to import/export !!!

maybe you think this is not really fatal problem, but i think this is really fatal for blogger like me that are posting about 100-200 posts, which costs 2-3 days to post all of them on wordpress !

  • and the last thing is not really fatal but still matters ! Wordpress editor doesn't retain TEXT FORMATTING, if you copy the documents with font colour, etc and paste it into the wordpress editor, your text will turn into plain black or default text formatting !

but of course wordpress is better in customization IF YOU ARE ABLE TO AFFORD THEM !
even wordpress.org requires hosting and domain to run online, wordpress.com costs very EXPENSIVE to unlock pro features which is around $100 !

Here, we are talking about wordpress.org the CMS blogging platform. Wordpress.com has nothing to do with this.

PS: Blogger by Goolag is a joke. You can maybe make toys or something else with it but not professional responsive websites for sure.
