Even though WordPress currently powers 25% of all websites in existence, many people are still unaware of it entirely, unsure of what exactly it is, or unaware of how it has grown since it’s early days as a blogging platform. If you’re not one of those people, congrats! You might find this post a rehash of things you already know, feel free to move along safe in the knowledge that you are well-informed and not missing anything.
One of the best things about WordPress, and one of the reasons I choose to use it (among many) is that it is unbelievably extensible. At this moment, there are 50,608 in the official WordPress plugin repository, and that doesn’t include many 3rd-party premium plugins. Chances are, if you need to do something with your website, there’s a plugin to help you get there.
