What is WordPress?

Get familiar with the most popular way to build a website

If you have ever searched for information about building websites, you have likely heard of WordPress. But what exactly is WordPress?


Brief Summary


WordPress is the most popular tool to create a website with. It allows you to easily build and manage your own website without needing to know how to code. WordPress is fairly easy to use and offers a wide variety of customizable themes and plugins.

WordPress is a content management system (CMS); this is a software that allows the user to create and manage content. But over the years WordPress has become much more than just a CMS. It successfully established itself as the go-to tool for building a website or blog.

How does WordPress work?

To get started building your WordPress website, you should begin by choosing a theme. A theme defines the appearance of your website, and each theme comes with its own design, layout, and features. Your theme is customisable, and you can change it at any point without losing your content.

You can publish content by working with an editor to create pages or posts. The standard editor works with blocks, which are elements like headings, paragraphs, buttons, or images. This allows you to build your page while having a structured layout. You can easily switch to a code editor if you need to.

To make the most out of your website, you can use plugins. Plugins are additional features you can install on your website. There are a wide variety of both free and paid plugins available, and each has its own use. They can, for example, improve the performance of your site, protect your website against spam, or help you with SEO. Plugins generally make creating and maintaining your WordPress website a lot easier.
