Reviews of WordPress
A website building platform for anyone
Comments: It has enabled lead generation by helping us optimise effectively. Wow! Wow! I love Wordpress. It’s ease of use is my main gold mine from this software.
Being someone new to the field of website development. The tool is easy to use and anyone can learn it since most of your queries can be solved through researching the net.
Some times the ability to customise is limited based on the chosen theme
WordPress is ideal for creating websites without coding knowledge
Comments: Overall, WordPress is a wonderful and user-friendly platform for creating a website.
What is most advantageous is that WordPress offers many options to create a very professional looking website without having to have coding knowledge. Our company reports on incidents globally in real time, so edits must be done in real time with relative ease.
The countless number of plug-ins can get a bit cumbersome, with some being offered for free, while others are not.
Good Blogging Software
Comments: Overall, this software is great for someone who wants to work on a computer. But if you are planning to use the mobile app a lot, it’s extremely glitchy and not a great fit.
I loved how easy it was to get set up with WordPress and the fact that there are a lot of free widgets, templates, etc. available. Their customer support was also very quick to respond and overall it offered the tools to make a beautiful modern website for our business.
The software is very under developed and glitchy. I had to reach out to customer support many times and it was very inefficient. The app does not function well, and I primarily use mobile devices for accessing the site as I don’t always have time to get to a computer. It does work well on the computer though.
I've been using WordPress for years to build websites.
Comments: At the beginning, WordPress was a learning curve. Years later, WordPress is easy for me to use. I do understand why many people investing in tutorials or designers to get their websites up and running.
WordPress is a free open source software. I like that you can use plugins and your own themes to build really nice websites and online shops.
While WordPress has gotten better at providing tutorials on how to use their software, things can get confusing fast if you don't know what you're doing. WordPress comes with templates that you can use right out the box, but they can be pretty limiting.
Wish is was simpler to use
Comments: My overall experience with wordpress is good I still use it for my business, great features but a little to difficult to use especially for someone with little to no knowledge on designing and customizing a website for their business.
There are great features in Wordpress, the free website is very useful. I used the free and paid plans. I think wordpress for me the free website sometimes comes like a paid website I am still able to reach people, well maybe not as much as the paid website. But it is still very useful.
It gets a bit complicated to use at times. It took me quite sometime to actually figure out how to use it and I have and still use wordpress for 2 years and no doubt I still have a difficult time using it for my business.
