    it's not so much that wordpress in itself is bad though?

    it's mostly bad configuration, bad plugins and sysadmins not doing updates.

    I do also think that using WordPress for a forum or a webstore is shitlessly stupid. it's a CMS, great for blogs or small news sites.

    If you ever get comfortable enough with the new WP api, it's actually a very nice way to hack together SPAs and simple web apps. By this I mean building your front end from scratch but using WPA for data storage and media handling.

    I pumped out a real time UFC score card / betting app in less than a day using WP and But. WP is also very easy to dockerize and plays nicely with NGINX.

    That being stated I'd never recommend actually building anything with WP's CMS.

    Well, WP is good for beginners, but for SEO, it is not so good, even with Yoast

    You interested me, and in general, as a web developer from a professional point of view, I can say that the site should not only be stylishly designed, but also informative and very functional. Now this is not so difficult to do. For example, here https://motopress.com/ there are already ready-made templates and plugins that will be useful to site creators on the Word Press platform. Everything is accessible and very easy to understand. I will be glad if this information is useful.

    Interesting post. It got me thinking about the significance of user-friendly tools like https://bnbforms.com These tools are invaluable for crafting reservation forms, ideal for vacation rentals and hotels, on a WordPress platform. They streamline the process, making it a breeze to create something beneficial and user-friendly. I believe that this will greatly simplify the task of customer focus for business owners.
