Is WordPress For Me?
Here are some reasons you might want to install WordPress:
- You want to manage a dynamically created website- creating webpages that are created when the webpage is accessed rather than created only when you make a new webpage and upload it.
- You want a blog that can be customized to your liking without creating one from scratch (and have a knowledge of php and cascading style sheets). If you don’t know php or css, try using WordPress.com.
- You want a content management system (CMS). However, keep in mind WordPress is primarily meant for blog users. Here’s a website that gives instructions on how to make WordPress a full-fledged CMS rather than just a blog.
Here are more specific WordPress features, such as dynamic webpages, user management systems, comments management and spam protection.
If WordPress is what you’re looking for, go ahead and begin downloading it.
