The reasons why I recommend WordPress for a professional website are detailed in this article, but suffice it to say that James Damore, CEO of Google until August 2017, uses WordPress on his official blog or site. By the way, his official site is now called Fired for Truth in reference to his dismissal from Google because of the controversy sparked by a leaked document with his point of view on gender stereotypes in the professional field. WordPress supports more than 23% of the Web – a percentage that increases every day. It lends itself to everything from websites to blogs to complex business portals to applications.

This platform combines simplicity for users and editors with refined tools for developers, making it flexible and easy to use at the same time. Here are some standard WordPress features, but there are literally thousands of plugins that extend the functionality, making it a virtually unlimited platform. You are also free to use the WordPress code as you wish, expand and modify it in any way, or use it for commercial projects without license fees. This is the advantage of free software: not only does it cost nothing, it also offers maximum freedom of control.

  • Simplicity. Simplicity makes it possible to be online and publish quickly. Updating the website and publishing content should be a natural, smooth operation. WordPress is made with this in mind.

  • Flexibility. With WordPress you can create any type of website: a blog or a personal website, a photo blog, a business website, a professional portfolio, an institutional website, a magazine or a news website, an online community and even a network of websites. You can beautify your website with themes, and you can add extensions with the plugins, and you can also make a proprietary application.

  • Publish with ease. If you have already created a document, you are now able to create content with WordPress. You can easily create publications and pages, format them, insert media files, and publish content to the web with the simple click of a button.

  • Tools for publication. WordPress simplifies content management. You can create drafts, plan publication, and review revisions of publications. Content can be made public or private, publications and pages can be password protected.

  • User management. Not everyone requires the same level of access to a website. Administrators manage the site, publishers take care of the content, authors and contributors write, and subscribers have a profile they can manage. This organization includes a wide range of partners for the website and makes the others simply part of the community.

  • Management of multimedia files. It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words, and that is why it is so important to be able to upload images and multimedia files in WordPress easily and quickly. Drag and drop the media files into the WordPress uploader to add them to your website. Add the ALT text, captions and titles, then add images and galleries to your content. We have also integrated some image editing tools to have fun with.

  • Full compliance with standards. Each portion of code generated by WordPress is fully compliant with the standards set by the W3C. This means that a page will work in current browsers, maintaining compatibility with the
    next generation of browsers. Your website will be beautiful both now and in the future.

  • Easy theme management system. WordPress comes with two pre-defined themes, but if you don’t like them, you can always use a directory of thousands of themes to create a wonderful website. Upload your theme with the click of a button. It only takes a few seconds to give your website a completely new look.

  • Extensible with plugins. WordPress comes with functions for every user, for everything else there is a directory with thousands of plugins. Complex galleries, social networks, forums, social network widgets, spam protection and calendars, advanced search engine optimization (SEO) controls and modules can be added.
