What is WordPress?

WordPress is a blogging platform developed using the PHP language. Users can set up WordPress on servers that support PHP and MySQL databases. You can use WordPress to build a simple stand-alone blog, or you can use WordPress as a content management system (CMS) to build a small portal site. In short, WordPress is now powerful enough to build almost any common type of website.

What, still don’t understand what WordPress is?

Explain again, now the general website has the administrative backstage, for example your own registered Sina blog, Baidu space, QQ space, etc., are all articles that can be sent after login.
