  • What WordPress isn&apos;t... well it&apos;s not just a blogging tool... far too many times now people make the assumption that it&apos;s all WordPress is good for, and it&apos;s just not the case. WordPress can manage a site that looks like any other it&apos;s just a matter of knowing how to properly use WordPress to your needs. <br /> <br /> For many of my our own clients we&apos;ve implemented the blogging tool as a news section on their blogs or just disabled it. This way they were still able to take advantage of WordPress as a CMS for their website needs. <br /> <br />
