WordPress Design and Development Auckland New Zealand1. What is the history of WordPress?

WordPress was first released in 2003 as a tool for creating blogs. In the years since it has become one of the most popular content management systems for website development. It is open-source software that is free to use, and it offers many features and plugins to make website creation and management easy for users of all levels of experience. Here are 10 things you need to know before creating a WordPress website.

WordPress was founded by Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little. Mullenweg is still the project’s lead developer, and he has turned WordPress into a global phenomenon with over 60 million websites using it.

I really enjoy a Tim Ferris podcast where he speaks to Matt Mullenweg who is a close friend about the history of WordPress. You can hear it here. To be honest they go off topic a lot and end up talking more about the antarctic and great life tips than WordPress.

2. How is WordPress different from other content management systems?

WordPress is different from other content management systems in several ways. First, it is open-source software, which means that anyone can contribute to its development. Second, it is free to use, and there are no licensing fees. Third, it offers a wide range of features and plugins to make website creation and management easy for users of all levels of experience.

The big piece here is it is open source and you own your website – many other platforms like Wix etc.. actually own your website. There is no way to get it should you have a falling out or they fail to perform. We say this happen much more in the early 2000’s where people would spend crazy money on a website only to find it was on proprietary software (is that how you spell that word?)

Why we love it – is that you can turn your website into anything. There are no limitations bar imagination. Also someone out there has probably created a plugin we can use to add to your website which is much cheaper than developing something from scratch.

Is your website not living up to the dream?

You’re not alone. But if you don’t change anything – nothing will change.
