Decisions about WordPress and Yola

Founder at Rate My Meeting · | 5 upvotes · 96K views

So many choices for CMSs these days. So then what do you choose if speed, security and customization are key? Headless for one. Consuming your own APIs for content is absolute key.

Later I have created also a site about WordPress: https://www.wpdoze.com

        Review of
        WordPress

        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
