Wordpress is a free publishing software and content management system (CMS) that is popular in America. The software is open-source allowing developers to create a wide array of plug-ins, themes and widgets. Wordpress is widely considered easy to use and is the CMS of choice for almost 75 million websites.

WordPress provides a web-based user interface for designing, publishing, and updating websites. Instead of writing HTML, you can simply choose one of many different website templates or "themes" that has a design you like. You can then modify the layout and build a custom navigation bar.

Plugins
WordPress's plugin architecture allows users to extend the features and functionality of a website or blog. WordPress has over 40,501 plugins available, each of which offers custom functions and features enabling users to tailor their sites to their specific needs.
