Review ofWordPressWordPress

Wordpress is extremely easy to learn and implement. Although is it not as sexy for devs to work with it is by far the most cost effective way to get a dynamic website up and running with very little debugging.

It's great for: * Landing pages * Private Social Networks * Blogs - obviously ;) * News Networks * Member sites * Multilingual content

Wordpress is used for our blog and some of our content & landing pages, runs on a subdomain. We also use a custom Python proxy to bring in blog content to the primary domain (/blog).
