WordPress is a free content management system used to build and maintain websites. WordPress provides a web-based user interface for designing, publishing, and updating websites. Instead of writing HTML, you can simply choose one of many different website templates or "themes" that has a design you like. You can then modify the layout and build a custom navigation bar. Once the site layout is complete, you can use WordPress' online interface to create individual pages. Each page may include formatted text, links, images, and other media.
WordPress powers more than 31% of the web _ a figure that rises every day. Everything from simple websites, to blogs, to complex portals and enterprise websites, and even applications, are built with WordPress.
