WordPress started as just a blogging system, but has evolved to be used as full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins and widgets and themes, WordPress is limited only by your imagination.
WordPress was born out of a desire for an elegant, well structured enterprise publishing system built onÂ PHPÂ andÂ MySQLÂ and licensed under theÂ GPLv2Â (or later). It is the official successor of b2/cafelog. WordPress is custom software, but its roots and development go back to 2001. It is a mature and stable product which now has a community of over 100 million websites. We hope by focusing on user experience andÂ web standardsÂ we can create a tool different from anything else out there.
