What is WordPress?

WordPress is a free and open-source content management system (CMS). WordPress is the new industry standard web software that can be used by anyone to create a websites, blogs, and even web apps. WordPress started as a blogging system released in 2003 by co-founders Matt Mullenweg and Mike Little , but has since evolved to be used as a full content management system and so much more through the thousands of plugins, widgets, and themes. WordPress is an open-source content management system built by hundreds of community volunteers.
