It’s no secret that I’ve been a WordPress user, integrator, and developer for the last 12 years. I know it’s built-in PHP, which is an ancient programming language (I mean I was in high school in 1995) and for a lot of people, it can be overkill. Also, there is this cool ‘headless CMS’ trend that’s kind of happening right now which is kind of a newer way to build websites: https://www.contentful.com/r/knowledgebase/what-is-headless-cms/

So we can say WordPress is a bit old, a bit clunky, easy to hack if you don’t update it, and otherwise not perfect. But it has 43% of the total website market share so a lot of people continue to use it so we definitely have favorite plugins to maximize it!
