  • What WordPress isn't... well it's not just a blogging tool... far too many times now people make the assumption that it's all WordPress is good for, and it's just not the case. WordPress can manage a site that looks like any other it's just a matter of knowing how to properly use WordPress to your needs.

    For many of my our own clients we'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.
