WordPress is an open source Content Management System (CMS), it is often used as a blog publishing application and it is powered by PHP and MySQL. It has many features including a plugin architecture and a templating system.
There are a wealth of themes available for free on the internet (plus a growing popularity of paid-for ‘premium’ themes), it’s never been easier to use WordPress to power your website.
WordPress is used by over 12% of the 1,000,000 biggest websites, it is the most popular CMS in use today. Wordpress is an excellent system to use when creating a website that lets you quickly get your thoughts out on the web, but while it is often used as a blog, it can be configured to work in many other interesting ways as well.
You can use Wordpress for sharing notes, documenting tasks and writing about what was going on. Comments are already built into the system, as well as pinging services, multiple blogger profiles, trackbacks and more. Most of the time nothing needs to be done to those systems either, because they already work the way that the user would want them to.
