Wordpress website Builder Review

Worldpress Website Builder Review

By nature, WordPress is a blogging platform. If we hear "Website-Builder" in the hosting section, we automatically think of Wix, Squarespace, Weebly or another drag-and-drop or browser-based interface for creating websites. Do you jump to what types of websites you can create with WordPress? - Use WordPress to create almost any type of website! If a simple website builder is simply not enough.

Great for users who are familiar with Wordpress.

Wordpress.com is not Wordpress - or at least it's not what most folks think when they listen to Wordpress. Wordpress is known to most as Wordpress.org, the much-loved open resource CMS. Although Wordpress.com is based on Wordpress, it is not the same. One of the most apparent signals that Wordpress.com is different from Wordpress is that it has a different UI - it is an optimized and simpler one.

Much more in line with what you might be expecting to find in a website builder. Switch between Wordpress.com (blue) and Wordpress (black). Wordpress.com is not a graphical drag-and-drop editing tool, unlike most website creators. Instead, it is a form-based authoring tool that divides page contents from page designs. A disadvantage of a form-based publisher is that pages are not designed in contexts.

For the past ten years, Wordpress has built an ecosystem made up of third-party plug-in developers. With Wordpress.com you can use one of these plugs (if you have the most costly plan). The plug-ins drastically expand the range of functions - there are plug-ins for everything: encasts, member schemes, cards and more. However, here's the thing: To set up almost any plug-in, you need to quit the nice Wordpress.com port and call WP-Admin.

WP Admin is the Wordpress API - it's the less friendly API, and the avoidance of it was the main reasons why Wordpress.com was developed with another API from the beginning. At the end, Wordpress.com tries to do two things: It tries to make Wordpress simpler and let the user take advantage of the incredible performance of Wordpress plug-ins.

In my opinion, this makes it worthwhile for two kinds of users: blogs and those who are already comfortable with Wordpress (because they don't care about using WP-Admin).
