WordPress

WordPress

WordPress is a high quality, open source blog publishing application. The software was born out of a desire for an elegant, well-architectured personal publishing system built on PHP and MySQL. It is the official successor of b2 (also known as cafelog).

Wordpress is renowed for, and advertises, its "five-minute installation" process, to highlight the fact that the software is simple to install. At the same time, WordPress has a very impressive set of features.

The sofware has a rich plugin architecture which enables users and developers to extend its functionality beyond the features that come provided. There are many free WordPress themes available. Additionally, there are plugins, which users can add to a WordPress blog to enhance its functionality, such as image galleries, statistics, anti-spam, etc. WordPress has a built-in search tool and archive. A comments tool is also included in the basic installation package.

WordPress uses a homegrown comment-spam prevention system called Akismet.

WordPress has a large supporting community.
