WordPress is now over ten years old and its popularity is still growing. Originally a blogging platform, since the release of WordPress 3.0, WordPress has made its full fledged triumphant step onto the CMS stage. WordPress developers used to hack the snot out of WordPress to get it to do what they wanted, but now, with features like Custom Post Types, Custom Taxonomies and Widgets, WordPress is a legit CMS platform that is even better to use than most of the other popular CMS’ on the market.
There are still plenty of developers and designers (mostly developers) who don’t believe in the power of WordPress. They don’t believe that WordPress is a powerful, easy to develop and user friendly CMS that is actually being used to build “real” websites and not just blogs. But they are wrong.
WordPress is being used all over the interwebs for more than just blogs and by some really powerful names and companies. WordPress.org has a really great showcase of websites that are powered by the mighty WordPress; full CMS sites, blogs, e-commerce, business, education and colleges.
