I saw many people use WordPress as a CMS, is that common? but the problem I noticed is that the download in such sites is slow, is WordPress slow?

  • Your questions fall downs to the definitions of "CMS" and "slow", which are wildly different, depending on whom you ask. I concur this is completely matter of opinion in the form you asked it. – Rarst Sep 12 '13 at 20:03

Wordpress IS a CMS. It hasn't been just a blogging platform for a long time.

And no, it's not slow if you don't make it slow. WP out of the box is really fast, but people slow it down with poorly-written plugins and themes.

You can do whatever you want with Wordpress, as it has hooks for basically everything. And you can find a lot of information in the Codex. There are also tons of tutorials online.

  • So why Plugins slow it down? and if I want to write my own Plugin what language do I need to learn? – sali Sep 12 '13 at 19:58

    @sali you need to learn php and WordPress itself to write plugins for WordpPress, i am assuming that you know HTML, CSS .etc – Anjum Sep 12 '13 at 20:03
