Best way to make a webpage or more is to use Wordpress

Really great to use, simple yet scalable. I've seen solutions for small companies, and enterprise websites made with Wordpress. It is Swiss army knife for building Webpages. Since elementor plugin was released you don neet any HTML or PHP knowledge. Making websites becomes drag and drop puzzle.

Pros

When you type in Wordpress in google, youtube or bing in matter of seconds you get basic, advanced or ninja level tutorials how to make a webpage. When you learn basics (2-3 weeks) you can make decent webpages for allmost anybody. Superb plugin/theme and forum support make this product superior to any other product. I never encounter problem which i could not figure out with fer minutes or hours of googleing.

Cons

Usage depends on speed of hosting servers. I had different versions and different solutions implemented. I found out that 90% of problems are hosting related, other 10% is related for not buying some premium features.

Reasons for Choosing WordPress

User friendly, my colleuge is expert so i had someone to nag.

It's been really rewarding. Not to talk of the vast assortment of plugins that extends the functionality of the CMS. Sincerely, WordPress is really worth every penny, if sold.

The bloated nature of third-party plugins that are not properly coded which creates loopholes for security breaches in a person's site.

WordPress was easy to set up for me. Unlike Joomla that had some bit of technicalities in its deployment, WordPress could be deployed within 5 minutes and you're good to go.

Reasons for Switching to WordPress

When Adobe bought over Dreamweaver, web development became a little cumbersome for me because of the UI/UX frameworks they introduced in the IDE.

Industry Standard for Web Design

I have used Wordpress for several different websites. We currently use it within our organization and I use it for my wife's business and also for our volunteer fire departments website. Again it is simplistic and for those less knowledgable about web design the platform allows for the user to walk through the design process with simplistic instructions.

Pros

I have been using Wordpress for the last several years. I often recommend this platform over others to colleagues and friends as it is the most widely used platform for web design available. It is simplistic and easy to walk through for those who are less than knowledgeable about web design while allowing full customization for those who are very knowledgeable. There are hundreds of pre-designed templates that you can utilize in your design. On top of the templates if you switch from one template to another it automatically carries your content from one design to another so you do not have to input all the information in again.

Cons

While there are hundreds of templates and customizations to choose from and some are free, in order to expand the customization or unlock other features there is a cost for doing so. Every customization or theme has a cost association to it; however, those costs are often negligent for what you are getting.

Reasons for Choosing WordPress

Preference. I was more familiar with Wordpress. Wordpress has been around a long time and can be as simple as the user wants it as well as extensive through content control.
