Overkill to a simple site. Looks easy, but if you want to do professional work you need to go down the php+js+sql rabbithole.
Most of the "'free" templates are not free, 99% of them missing some important feature and you will be forced to pay for it.
Tons of security issues with plugins and wyswyg editors.
It's for blogging. If your site don't have a blog and you know the basics of html+css, you don't need WP.
Very hard to migrate, even with plugins, i had lot of errors with backups and migrations.
I avoid WP every time i can.

overrated by far. I think that if you want to build your website, a simple very simple website, WordPress is the way to go. But there are a number of limitations when using it for free. For a simple blog, I think WordPress is good, but if you want to make a website for your business, WordPress is not the one. I'm looking for alternatives myself at the moment.

Not all that great

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.

It is most widely used CMS so the compability is the best among all CMS but

  • new gutenberg editor is slow and inefficient, the navigation also cluttered and hard to use
  • runs very slow, every interaction or action has delay 2-3 seconds at the most
  • most popular CMS means most targeted to hackers, so need to install security plugin

If you want speed and effective way to build website, i dont recommend wordpress. there is lot of other alternative which is better than wordpress.

tried it but longterm is not a viable option. My site grew a lot and since it is a bussiness, I need it to be updated constantly and with wordpress, maintaining is really difficult for the average user.

This is, of course, for the hosted Wordpress.com (and not the self-hosted Wordpress.org) version.

The Wordpress.com version is very limited on the free tier. They have made improvements with the paid tiers and, at least, now you use plugins. However, all paid tiers are expensive for what they are.

I like wordpress, I think it has a lot of customizable plugins but it is not for bigger websites. I think is beginner friendly only.

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.

Probably one of the best CMS out there.

I mean it's open source and highly customizable and many plugins to choose since it's popular that many developers will create and submit their own plugins.

But there are actually some better options out there.

What are some of the better options out there? I was looking for over a year to find something I could change to. A lot of them I could not install, or they required me to put a lot of time into learning the software. Another problem was trying to migrate content over from my old WP site to a new CMS. I found a few CMS I really like and tried awhile. But, it took a lot of time getting there. I got tired of struggling so I started using ClassicPress now.

I think this is just meant to be used for simple websites. I have seen how wordpress sites get more and more complicated to maintain as your website grows... i do not recommend it.

As for me, WordPress is a very intrusive resource

This is fine for your average blogger, but quickly becomes too limited on a business scale.

I have been struggling with WordPress for some time now... at first is awesome but as your site gets bigger and better, maintenance of the site gets more and more difficult for non-wordpress developers.

so this is free and good but for someone that doesn't really have full knowledge on WordPress development, I think maintenance is incredible hard to manage.
