Re: Implementing WordPress to an existing html website

WordPress is the most popular website back-end these days. But it's popular with people that don't want to get their hands dirty hand coding everything.

 

The main advantages: Themes and plugins let you change the design of your site or add functionality without reworking everything. Updating content is easy since it's done in a page editor. WordPress has a large community behind it, it's easy to find help online.

 

The main disadvantages: It's more resource intensive, and needs caching added to handle the same amount of traffic a hand coded site can. You have to learn how to do things the WordPress way which is blogging focused, it can feel like your hands are tied if you're used to developing on your own. You have to keep it up to date, as the most popular web platform, it's also the biggest target for exploits.

Wow, thank you @BenWTF, I think that I'll stick with my bootstrap.  WP seems to be a lot more risky, if it's not updated every day, and as I'll be updating my site irregularly, I think I can't have WP.  I hoping to have my site visible to the world in February, so watch this space Smiley Wink
