I think what sets WordPress apart from all the other Blogging Platforms/CM Systems is it’s extensibility. If a client asks me “I need X and Y done”, chances are WordPress can handle it easily.
Templating is easy to grasp, plugins add tons of features, and the community behind it is undeniably massive.
I love how you can manipulate absolutly everything that WordPress has threw hocks and filters! And how easy it is to create themes for it.
My absolute favorite thing about WordPress…hmmm…the community, I think. In 2008, when I was trying to ‘get’ the right CMS, WP kept rising to the top. Now, after working with it, attending WordCamp, and meeting WP users/gurus online–I’m confident I’ve made the right choice.
So, yes–the community. That and the fact that I can make WP look ANY way I want! ;-)
What I love about WordPress is it’s easy to use admin area. especially with recent releases, upgrading to newer versions, activating plugins and themes has been remarkably fast – and easy!
Love it! :)
I would say that my absolute favorite thing about WordPress is the community and the fact that I’ve come across wonderful people such as yourself – but that may come across as sucking up just a little too much! (although it is true)
Instead I’ll say that it’s the flexibility to make a site do anything I want. I get excited every time I add a hack to one of my sites or write a WordPress plugin. It’s just so easy and flexible. I work with enterprise level CMS’s for work (though not much hands on) and they are hard to change. WordPress is a delight.
I like how you can write your posts in advance and schedule to have it published at a future date.
(Coincidentally, I signed up today as an affiliate for your Digging into WordPress – does that disqualify me?) I’d love to win it anyway – I have learned a lot from your site over the past year!
The one crucial thing I love about is WordPress’s extensibility, among a load of other things.
I absolutely love the ease of customization in WordPress. It’s amazing what you can do in WordPress and how easy you can do it as well.
Oh, I really want this book. I sure hope I win.
My favourite thing about WP is that I can make it whatever I need to. It is so flexible and extensible that it really is everything.
Simplicity. It’s my absolute favorite thing about WordPress.
My favorite thing:
WordPress lowers the barrier to personal publishing. I believe WordPress is technology on par with Google, Twitter, Facebook and yes, as much as I loathe it, Microsoft Word.
It’s a game changer.
I love the abundance and variety of plugins for WordPress.
