There are many myths around the system that are not really precise generalities or are simply not true. It is worth taking a closer look before deciding to build your own site.
1 WordPress is only suitable for blogs!
This statement is completely and irrevocably false. This platform can be easily adapted for almost any purpose. Most popular applications such as a company website or a simple online store do not require programming knowledge, but the experience gained while working with CMS.
2 All WordPress websites look the same!
Of course, in the free themes database there are many that look identical or very similar. Professionally made websites based on WordPress are usually prepared on the basis of varied paid motifs or built from scratch based on their own ideas.
3 I’ll do anything on WordPress
Absolutely not! WordPress is not suitable for creating, e.g. an email system or a game. This platform will not be useful for such applications.
4 You need to know PHP / HTML to use WordPress
This is absolutely not true. You do not need to know any programming language to enter any information update. WordPress has a built-in graphic editor that allows you to easily add new text, graphics, or movies. Also, expanding the site with popular functionalities is most often possible without the need for programming, using ready-made modules.
5 WordPress is poorly secured
It depends on the user and the administrator. As long as you correctly configure and apply the security guidelines and regularly install the latest versions of the platform – you can be calm. However, you should remember that after updating WordPress, errors may appear resulting from the author’s code of the page. That is why it is worth using the help of professionals.
6 WordPress is inefficient
This is another myth! WordPress is an efficient platform, but it is easy to slow down by installing inefficient plugins or poor quality templates. Fortunately, there are many great and ready-made tools that solve this problem (such as cache, minification, or integration with the CDN service). However, you need to be able to put them into practice.
7 WordPress is an Open Source product and nobody is responsible for it
This is true. The WordPress platform is available for free, but Automattic is responsible for development. CMS is constantly being developed.
Over 30 million comments are published on websites based on WordPress within 30 days.
8 Unused plugins do not need to be updated
Very wrong reasoning. Even if WordPress does not currently use the function (plug-in), it must be updated anyway. If the plug-in is not used, it is recommended to remove it.
9 All plug-ins and templates are secure
Unfortunately, this is also not a true statement. Choosing a safe and good quality template is crucial. As a rule, the prices of commercial solutions are reasonable. We know from experience that if the quality of the code has been verified and it is visually attractive to the buyer, it is certainly worth the amount that the author wishes. The choice of the template and appropriate plugins should be guided by experience.
