Wordpress started life as a blogging platform and quickly became the most widely used tool. Thousands of page templates and plugins meant that you could create a blog that stood out from the crowd and allowed you to share your thoughts with the world.
As the years went by and people became more and more comfortable with the nature of blogging but also with CMS type systems the tool expanded to offer more and more control. People could suddenly do far more than just blog, they could create navigation tools, add in static pages and build their "blogs" into more traditional style websites. This opened the door to many developers who began to use Wordpress as a CMS for traditional web development where there was no need for a blog.
As you would expect, Wordpress saw this change in usage and understood that with some updating the tool could in fact take a concious step towards a full-blown CMS. This is where Wordpress now stands, a solid, well supported CMS with added blogging functionality. Webfaced have been using Wordpress for a number of years but only in the last two years has the tool become a real feature in our arsenal of tools!
If you need help with setting up or styling a Wordpress blog we can help knowing the tool inside-out. If you want a low-cost CMS then Wordpress might also be the tool for you. One of the best case-studies we can offer for using Wordpress as a CMS is Dream Doors. Dream Doors approached Webfaced to rebuild their site on a new platform to escape the cost of their encumbent agency and the associated CMS. We rebuilt the site with some massive improvements on the Wordpress system.
