In its early days, WordPress was focused on blogging, but new iterations have added more features and an expansive plugins library. The software is now a full-scale CMS and is frequently used to design powerful websites. It has a huge community around it.
WordPress is easy and intuitive to use and has a small learning curve. Creating content with a single layout is simple. Creating content with more layout options is more difficult but can be done with code or with specialized plugins or themes. Create pages, posts, projects, custom post types, custom navigation menus, sidebars, and more.

It’s extremely customizable. It has over 56,000 plugins and thousands of themes in the WordPress depository alone. There are also thousands of premium plugins and themes available. It can be customized further with CSS, code snippets, etc.
