Introduction

WordPress is one of the most famous content management systems (CMS). According to the latest statistical data nearly 22.5% of all existing sites around the world run on WP. This system is often chosen as it is:

  • Easy to install, run and modify.
  • Free.
  • Rich in free templates, themes, and plugins.
  • SEO friendly.
  • Simple to control and manage.
  • Secure in use.
