WordPress Reviews

"Just an okay website builder software, not the best"

The price was the cheapest out of the software options out there. It was unreliable. Our website crashed upon launch and it was nearly impossible to get in touch with a person to help us fix the issue. The lack of customization features was an issue as well, unless you are willing to pay extra.

"Not very user friendly"

The site is extremely glitchy. I can never successfully accomplish what I'm trying to do on the first try.

"Great free software if you just want to stick with the basics"

I love how easy it is to build posts using WordPress. You pick a layout for your site and everything just fills in. Very low lift if you don't want to customize. I don't like how complex WordPress can get the second you want to use the more robust features of the site. It gets so complicated and so fast for doing "simple" customizations.
