As I installed Wordpress and read the beginning documentation, the focus of it is about a "blogging site". I understand that is Wordpress's heritage, but I believe nowadays many people use Wordpress to build sites where blogging may not be heavily used or even used at all.
To me at the the top level -- just my thought, please clarify -- is Wordpress differs from other "front end" frameworks like JQuery Mobile in that it offers/includes a database. What all is the database used for at a high level is not clear to me. I want to create a site with basic menu structure, the ability to list/display articles well, the ability to take questions and feedback and put up a FAQ, but not support any kind of heavy blogging.
1) Can you please tell me, what does Wordpress offer "database-wise" at a high level -- meaning what high level capabilities does the database/setup in Wordpress have other than blogging?
2) Given my needs above, as well as a paypal plugin or link to receive donations, how do you think Wordpress would work for me over choosing another framework, perhaps JQuery mobile. (note I want to my site to support variable sized devices).
Thank you. I'm happy to give credit to all different insights, all are much appreciated.
