Should we use WordPress?
WordPress is great software for building websites, and it's super popular because of that. But it's not the best tool for every type of site.
On the positive side, WordPress is free, and it's fairly easy to use when you first install it. It's quite easy to improve a WordPress website with new features by adding plugins, and an updated design by finding and adding a new theme. It's also great for ecommerce sites with the WooCommerce plugin.
But WordPress can get really messy and bloated when you add many plugins, and it's not great for sites with lots of types of content, such as events, products, team members, organisation profiles, publications, etc.
