What is WordPress?
WP is a free content management system. It was programmed as software for weblogs by Matthew Mullenweg from 2003 onwards and is constantly being further developed as an open source project. WP is the most widespread system for operating websites with approx. 50% share of all CMS and 32% share of all websites.
In WP, each post can be assigned freely definable categories, navigation elements are automatically generated accordingly. The system also offers reader comments with the option of checking them before publication, management of user roles and rights and the option of external plug-ins, with which WP can be expanded towards a full-fledged CMS.
WP is based on the PHP scripting language (PHP 7 or higher is recommended) and requires a MySQL or MariaDB database. It is free software licensed under the GNU General Public License (GPLv2). According to the developers, the system attaches great importance to web standards, elegance, user-friendliness and easy adaptability.
Code is Poetry.
