WordPress is a state-of-the-art semantic personal publishing platform with a focus on aesthetics, web standards, and usability.
More simply, WordPress is what you use when you want to work with your blogging software, not fight it.
WordPress is an open-source blogging tool and a content management system (CMS) based on PHP and MySQL. Features include a plugin architecture and a template system. WordPress was used by more than 23.3% of the top 10 million websites as of January 2015. WordPress is the most popular blogging system in use on the Web, at more than 60 million websites.
It was first released on May 27, 2003, by its founders, Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little, as a fork of b2/cafelog. The license under which WordPress software is released is the GPLv2 (or later) from the Free Software Foundation.
We contacted Parish Council Websites because we wanted to benefit from the experience they had in the development of websites for Parish Councils. They converted a prototype site in record time and ironed out some of the inconsistencies. We are delighted that we now have full control to update our website as and when necessary and that the process is so easy. Nothing has been too much trouble and we can honestly say that our expectations have been truly exceeded.
