Congratulations to WordPress on their new CMS Award:
WordPress has been awarded the Overall Best Open Source CMS Award in the 2009 Open Source CMS Awards. This is a landmark for us, as it is the first time we’ve won this award, and it marks a shift in the public perception of WordPress, from blog software to full-featured CMS. No small contest, the Open Source CMS Awards received over 12,000 nominations and more than 23,000 votes across five categories.
WordPress is known as blog software, but with every new release it grows more and more powerful as a Content Management System (CMS). That means you don’t have to just think of blogging with WordPress. Now it’s useful for all kinds of websites, even sites that don’t have a blog at all.
It makes a great solution for a site where the owner wants to be able to add new content, or edit existing content themselves.
WordPress makes it easy for users to upload media such as photos, PDF files, sounds or movies and include them in Posts or Pages.
I’ve been using WordPress since it was known as B2 — that’s a long time, probably around 9 years. I’m more impressed with it as every new update is released.
I’ve used WordPress for each of my main sites, including this one, and have also installed and set up WordPress sites for clients:
