WordPress back then was this simple content management system when it was first launched in 2003 but now it has become the most popular and widely used platform in the whole world and as of today, it has been downloaded over 16,000,000 times. WordPress is based on PHP and MySQL and it was licensed under the GPLv2, meaning its free to be modified by its users it also means that anyone can contribute to its development, which is another reason for its rapid growth.
The developers and users create plugins which extend the basic use of WordPress sites, this made the platform more popular due to its flexibility. The use of plugins is an ingenious idea because you don’t need any kind of programming knowledge in order to create a WordPress site, aside from plugins WordPress has some popular block editors which control the user interface of the website. It has also evolved over time with the help of the WordPress community. Gutenberg a complex WordPress block editor and also one of the popular block editors became harder to use over time because it aims to become a better tool for everyone else, learning this would be beneficial to any users out there who wish to continue using WordPress in the present and in the future.
