Using WordPress’ free and open source interface is no longer just for blogging and content management. The benefits include a plug-in architecture and a template system. WordPress is SEO friendly right out of the box, and is used by over 18% of the top 10 million websites worldwide.
WordPress users may install and switch between themes. Themes allow users to change the look and functionality of a WordPress website or installation without altering the information content or structure of the site
One very popular feature of WordPress is its rich plugin architecture which allows users and developers to extend its abilities beyond the core installation.
Widgets are small modules that offer users drag-and-drop sidebar content placement through the implementation of plugins’ extended abilities. Some of these Widgets offer customization options such as web forms to fill out, a search form, Categories, Archives and Recent Posts.
Multi-User and Multi-Blogging
WordPress Multi-User allows multiple blogs to exist within one installation but is able to be administered by a centralized maintainer. WordPress Mulii-user makes it possible for those with websites to host their own blogging communities.
Native applications exist for WebOS, Android, iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch, iPad), Windows Phone, and BlackBerry.
