  • 12. Why choose WordPress?
    1) The community!
    3) Themes
    There are so many users, designers and developers who are happy to help out in many different ways. e.g. Contributing code to the core, making plugins, helping out in forums, podcasts, Meetups and WordCamps!
    Change the look of your site without every having to re-enter content.
    2) Ease of use
    4) There’s a plugin for that
    It’s so easy to use from the backend that you can get the hang of the basics without needing a manual!
    Just like iPhones have the saying “there’s an app for that”, WordPress users are often heard saying “there’s a plugin for that” and if there isn’t one, chances are someone is working on one right now!
