    I would love to be able to design my own wordpress themes, jut like you. But CSS, XHTML, PHP, JS, I just don't know where to start. For me, the main advantage is the thousands of themes I can find on themeforest.

    It's great when you run a simple site. Recently I had to do a site which was multilingual and contained some info in database. After all I ended up using qTranslate and Pods plugins but still it was a nightmare and we couldn't provide 30% of things we wanted because of wordpress limitations. Still we went with it because WP has most user friendly admin interface.

    Yes, the range of themes available is great! It's really useful for people who want a good looking site quickly and without too much fuss! :)

    When getting to higher levels I agree there can be some problems but I'm glad you found the User Friendly Admin Interface, I think that really shines through.
    I tend to only create simple sites so I haven't yet hit the limit!

    I'm using WordPress for 3 years now after using my own 'cms' (lowercase for a reason ;) ), and don't think I'll be using something else soon.
    Out of the box it just works fine, is very easily adjustable.
    For bigger sites, it 'seems' it can't do everything, but if you look, there are lots of plugins that take things out of your hands. And there are lots of hooks and functions ready to be called upon with your own custom code.

    I'm now finishing a site with a few 1000 pages about skiresorts in Europe, and the next project will be an e-commerce site with 14.000 items.

    WordPress is an awesome, indeed very user-friendly (that's why I started using it) CMS that is as versatile like you want it to be. A decent knowledge of front-end coding will get you a long way. Knowing how to write PHP gives you even more control.

    Yes definitely! The fact that all the functions can be called up in your own designs really makes a difference. It's great that WordPress is easy to use for those without any coding or design knowledge but is also extremely useful for those that know PHP really well and HTML/CSS/JS.

    WordPress is nice, and I still use it for some projects. But as far as a custom content managed site I find MODx to be MUCH easier. I like writing all of my own XHTML and CSS and integrating JS where and how I want to. Plus, the ecommerce side of things is much easier.

    In answer to your question – yes, I will be a long-term user, I love WordPress! I just finished designing my first Joomla website and honestly, I was not very impressed… I definitely prefer WordPress over any other content management systems that I’ve tried!

  • http://dspickett.com DSPICKETT

    Yep, couldn’t agree with you more! :) I can’t wait to see what the future holds for WordPress.

    I am also addicted to WordPress since I did some work on it for a client back in 2007. It directly felt so easy to create websites beside blogs with it and using wordpress as a framework for bigger projects is also easy. Allthough many of my friends do not believe, that WordPress can handle bigger websites I always can prove them wrong!

    Oh thats a really positive endorsement right there! It’s great to hear that wordpress can go all out and handle a bigger website.
