WordPress has grown from a blog site to so much more. In fact, today it’s by far the most popular CMS (Content Management System) for building a website. Of course, you can still build a blog, but it’s important to realize you can do so much more!
The Difference Between Non CMS Websites and WordPress
When a developer builds a website with standard HTML, he/she creates a static template. Using this template each of the web pages is created and then it saves as its own file. Each page will contain both the template (presentation layer) and the content (content layer) for that page. This file is then uploaded to the site. If you want to make a change, big or small, to the content of the web page, you need to change the file and then upload it again. You always risk messing up your formatting during this process.
WordPress handles this differently, because all of the content is stored in a database. That means anytime you need to change content it’s very easy and you never have to be worried about messing up your template. The template or presentation layer and the content layer are always stored separately.
Great, so we’ve established why WordPress is better because it uses a content management system (CMS); now let’s look at for more reasons why this CMS based platform is a great choice.
