WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination (and tech chops).
The WYSIWYG (What You See Is What You Get) editor for WordPress posts and pages makes it extremely simple for the everyday website owner to create and edit sections on their website. If you can use Microsoft Word or other word processing software, you will feel right at home in the WordPress editor.
One of the best features of WordPress is its ability to extend and enhance its functionality through use of plugins. With over 18,000 plugins available, just about any functionality you can dream up for your website can be realised in some way. Plugins transform what might be a simple website into a powerful and versatile Content Management System.
