WHAT IS WORDPRESS?
WordPress is a free open source content management system and blog publishing platform. The service is used by over 12% of the 1,000,000 biggest websites and is the most popular CMS in use today.
Large part of the services popularity is due in part to it being free and relatively powerful, yet easy to use, allowing anyone to set up a site or blog in minutes.
WordPress’ large member community have created thousands of templates and plugins for the service, many of which are available for free at WordPress.org.
