The Future of WordPress– WordPress is the most widely used content management system, used by over 42% of websites today, from everyday bloggers to Fortune 500 companies. Over the years, since 2003, WordPress has constantly evolved.
10 or 15 years ago, many of the tools we have today that make our lives much easier and allow us to achieve unimaginable things were not available. As for creating web pages, at the dawn of the internet, few people were able to create a website as the theory and practice required to learn programming and HTML were much more limited.
WordPress core developers have made it a priority to ensure that what was once just a blogging platform becomes the number one platform used by millions of websites worldwide. For the no-code community, WordPress is an easy-to-use platform. For WordPress theme and plugin developers, WordPress provides a platform that can allow individual developers or larger agencies to reach a universe of users where different services can be offered.
This applies not only to developers but also to website and blog owners.
Although the main focus is still on blog creation, a big development in plugin and theme development will allow us to further expand the possibilities and power of WP. Security is an important issue that people using WordPress often ignore until their site is hacked or they face data or content loss issues.
Examples: having malicious plugins, not updating the platform to the latest version, using hacked or poor-quality themes, etc. Newer versions have introduced automatic updates that help everyone to use the latest, safest, and most stable version. No doubt there will be many more security developments in the future.
What makes WordPress so flexible?
There are some myths related to WordPress. Many people think that in order to create a personalized and professional website, you have to hire a programmer who charges a lot of money.
Although many prefer this option, in several cases the end result is not what you want, in addition to the fact that managing and updating the site can be a headache due to the great dependence on the person who programmed everything.
With WordPress, any user can create a website and, if necessary, ask a developer for help to make certain specific changes. This is much more affordable and accessible in a matter of time. Also, the user can update, modify, and maintain their page well from the main desktop of the platform. No codes or advanced programming.
Various platforms have emerged over the years that have been much more friendly and accessible to all types of users. One of these was WordPress, which hit the market in 2003 as a free, open-source tool that could be used to create blogs and publish content. What started as a platform 100% focused on “blogging” has evolved into a CMS (Content Management System) that allows you to create any type of website and adapt it to all types of needs.
