WordPress the famous blogging platform that i use here has taken first place in the Overall Best Open Source CMS category of Open Source CMS Awards 2009!
I think a legitimate won and it has nothing less vs other famous opesource CMS like Joomla and Drupal. From long time it’s considered much more than a complete blogging system.
So using it i want list the pro and cons that personally i find in this platform.
– easy to install, setup and use
– expandible (thanks to the bunch of plugins and integration with other systems eg. forums)
– themes (a lot and always in development both free and commercials)
– high customization
– very good online support
– too much PHP memory usage
– security problems (being a system widely used is it’s more under hacking and spam attacks)
