  1. My fave thing about WordPress is the custom fields and the taxonomies. Combined, those two capabilities allows one to build Dynamic Catalogs. Essentially, one can build a custom database without doing any SQL coding nor any PHP coding. Cool!

    I love WordPress because of its community, they’re great people and you can find a lot of help with them. I also like it because there’s a lot of famous webdesigner using it and writing great tutorials and books (thanks Chris). What I hate about WP? Too many upgrade…

  3. I’d loved in WordPress by using it’s uWordpress as creating community blogging, and find easily writing own plugins :) and for helping community.
    Now my 80% projects are in WordPress :) It’s very easy.

  4. I like WP for its great community which moves things further ;)

    The community is quite probably the most valuable aspect of WordPress; everyone is quite willing to help others out either through their blogs or on the forums which is always great to see. Not so great about it is the view that the people giving this help should offer up their time for free with no thanks from the person asking the question.

  8. I think one of the things I absolutely love about WordPress is how you can make it fit in with your own custom design. The fact that you are not forced into conforming into a certain style or layout really does it for me!

    I love the fact that you can make any kind of website with something that was launched as a Blogging Platform. Do not know if you noticed it but WP 2.9 does not have a Blog Stats link but a Site Stats link.
    Plethora og plugins is an added advantage.
    I hate the every next week of updates that they through.

  12. Oh it’s hard to pick! I love the ability to customise and create beautiful themes … but I think it has to be the range of plugins/extensions available provided by a brilliant, helpful community. It’s almost like having a web-Swiss army Knife!
