WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS) that allows users to easily create, manage, and publish digital content, such as blog posts, web pages, and e-commerce sites. It was first released in 2003 and has since become one of the most popular CMS platforms in the world, with millions of websites using it.
WordPress is highly customisable and flexible, with a vast library of themes and plugins available for users to enhance the appearance and functionality of their website. Users can also choose to code their own custom themes and plugins, or modify existing ones to suit their needs.
WordPress is built using PHP and MySQL, and is designed to be easy to use, even for people who are not experienced in web development. It has a user-friendly interface that makes it easy to add and edit content, and the system handles the technical details of publishing and maintaining the site.
In addition to its core features, WordPress has a large and active community of developers and users who contribute to the platform, provide support, and create plugins and themes. This community has helped to make WordPress one of the most versatile and powerful CMS platforms available today.
